Holy and Loving

“A god who was only holy would not have come down to us. He would have simply demanded that we pull ourselves together, that we be moral and holy enough to merit a relationship with him. A deity that was “all-accepting love”would not have needed to come to Earth either. This god of the modern imagination would have just overlooked sin and evil and embraced us. Neither the god of moralism nor the god of relativism would have bothered with Christmas.”

The biblical God, however, is infinitely holy and infinitely loving.”

Tim Keller, Hidden Christmas, p47
