 Re:

Slight correction/addition.

I am sure Adam and Eve repented but immediately after they sinned and tried to blameshift and cover up their sin, God demonstrated His love to these 2 unrepentant sinners by promising them a Redeemer.

God always takes the initiative on our behalf.

 Re:

How many times have you heard people lament their sin because the law is too hard for them? It is impossible for anyone to obey the law perfectly, they claim. And yet Deuteronomy 30:11 clearly teaches that the law is not too hard for us. How desperate we are for excuses!

The same principle where fathers are commanded not to exasperate their children also applies to God, He is not afraid to comply with His own law. No good father demands more of his children than they are able to perform, that would be exasperating!

Not only does He love His unrepentant children, He knows just how far from being honest about their sin that they are. It's not that He loves us because we are so trapped in sin we can't avoid, He actually loves us while we are commiting sin for which we have no excuse!

That is some very serious love!

Amen brother.

No excuse, just truth;

Acts 13:37-39 But He, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by Him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Even those that think they can keep the Law, must live in the Law and be tested in the Law. They will fail.

There is no justification unto life in Christ Jesus in keeping the Law, even if we could keep the Law, there is no life in it, only justification of the flesh.

AS the Jews taught;

Acts 15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.

The truth of the Law, no one can bear the yoke of the Law.

Acts 15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

Does God praise man in trying to keep the Law?

Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

The Law has only one purpose; Guilty

Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

Our redemption is in Christ not in the Law.

Romans 3:21-24 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

I so love the Law, for it shows me who I am in Christ Jesus by the Grace give me by faith, and even beyond the Law, the Love of Christ.

In Christ: Phillip

 Re:

Yes, just like the Prodigal Son's father loved him while he was unrepentant.
