It takes only a moment to have the revelation that God is love, but it takes a lifetime to let go of other doctrines we’ve been taught/conditioned to believe that makes God out to be anything less than love.
We play theological gymnastics most of our lives, finding ways to justify God the half lover, God the almost lover, God the if you do, I do lover. God the it’s not my fault lover, God the angry lover.
In the end, though it will take a lifetime, I think we’ll all give up on the theological gymnastics game, and just accept the reality of God the way a child does: God is love. Fully. Always. Forever.
