The biblical term to describe God’s love is EVERLASTING. The usual meaning of the word unconditional is `without conditions or reservations; absolute meaning people need to be loved and accepted unconditionally - without any conditions of performanceUnconditional love cannot be based upon performance or it wouldn't be unconditional. Therefore, it must be based on the intrinsic worth of the person. Now the well-instructed Christian immediately recognizes a number of serious errors in this teaching of theHumanistic psychologists and others. You must not ignore the God of burning holiness who has declared that certain behavior is right and good. Certain behavior is wrong and evil. God, in a judgmental and restrictive way demands that all men do what is right and good.The term "unconditional love" was coined byErich Fromm, an atheist in 1934 and developed in his 1956 book ‘The art of loving’ Fromm naively believed a father’s love was always conditional. A mother’s love unconditional and couldn’t be forfeited by sins or transgression. Fromm taught that a person must love himself, accept himself, and esteem himself in order to reach his highest potential. He did not see love as coming from outside himself. ~ Most of this article from an article found on internet search. ~ eileen
