Let’s say I choose to build a house for my 8 children. It is going to be a beautiful, perfect house that has all the facilities needed for my children to live in to make them happy and completely fulfilled. However, the house is only going to be beautiful and perfect on the condition that my children behave themselves, and if they don’t behave, I am going to put snakes in there which will bite them and eventually be the source of their painful destruction. Now, before I put them in there, I am aware they are going to misbehave, in fact I want them to misbehave, for reasons which I will explain later. So I put my 8 children in there, and lo and behold, they start misbehaving. “You naughty children” I say, “because of your misbehaving I am going to put these snakes in your house that you cannot escape from, that will cause all of you to die”. So that’s what I do, and they suffer incredibly. However, I am a loving Father. Before I put all my children in the house, before I had even made the house for them, I had a plan. That plan was I would go in there to save 2 of them, and take on the snakebites for them so that they might not have to anymore. I did that, because I am a loving father. Why these 2 children? No reason, they were just the ones I had chosen. Why did I leave out the other 6? It is because it is for my glory, and because they misbehaved. Aren’t I a loving Father?
Well to me the Father in that analogy isn’t loving at all. So what’s wrong with my analogy?
