Our Father’s Disposition

One God and Father of all (Ephesians 4:6).

God is love (I John 4:8).

Were there no other passages of the Bible handed down to us, but those which declare that God is our Father, and He is love, these alone would be a sufficient foundation for the faith we cherish in regard to the final salvation of all souls.

All His attributes, whatever they may be, must subordinate to His love; and since He “is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His works” (Psalm 145:9), as the Psalmist declares, we feel sure that such must be His disposition forever. However severe, therefore, His judgments may be, we may confidently assert, that, in the very nature of His disposition, eternal punishment of any would be an utter impossibility, since, if He were to inflict such a penalty, He would no longer deserve to be called “our Father.”
