47. The Paradox of Love and Law
Are God's laws loving? If we listen to popular cultural paradigms, we might be confused about the nature of God's love as it relates to His laws or commandments.
In this episode, I share a portion of my parenting journey and what it taught me about the inseparable connection between love and law. Then, with scriptures and quotes from modern prophets as a backdrop, I explore how God's laws are evidence of His love rather than a contradiction.
Understanding this concept is crucial to standing firmly with the Savior amid a social environment that labels God's laws and those who follow them as unloving.
