I believe the love of God is found at the Cross and if the sinner rejects it he will not find God's love. It is hard to get around Psalms 5:5 and say that God loves everyone. I'm curious what does Dr. Ruckman say about this? I don't think I've heard him talk about it in his sermons.

Another thing to realize is that God's hate isn't like our hate. God wants people to come to the Cross, but at the same time. God sees a sinner as an enemy because of that sin in them.

Romans 5:10 "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
