“Not For Condemnation” (John 3: 16, ESV) by Carley Evans

“For God does not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3: 17)

God’s motivation is love, not judgment. God so loves the world that He gives His only Son as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. Christ’s life and death are designed to save, not to condemn the peoples of the world.

Christ comes to earth to save it and us. He comes to “seek and to save what is lost.” (Luke 19: 10) He comes not to heal those who are well, but those who are sick.

    You’re welcome. God bless you as well.

  3. How does the Word of God tell us in John that people come into condemnation? Or what is the condemnation then?

      Make no mistake — God can not be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. If he sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will come destruction of the flesh.

      Paul even speaks of handing over a man to Satan so that the flesh will be destroyed so the soul is saved.

      Perhaps this verse is what lead to the Spanish Inquisition! Burning sinners at the stake! Torture and harsh treatments of the body!
