In the Bible, there are many accounts of when God demonstrated his power and involvement in the world to human beings.
Christians believe that God is omnibenevolent. There are many passages in the Bible that explain God’s all-loving nature, for example:
But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness (Psalm 86:15).
Christians believe that Jesus is the ultimate expression of God’s omnibenevolence. Jesus was God’s only son, sent as a sacrifice to make amends for the sins of humankind. Christians believe that this sacrifice made it possible for people to have eternal life with God in Heaven after they die. This is described in the Gospel of John:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16
In the Bible, St Paul talks about the strength of God’s love for humanity. He says that God will ensure that human beings will always have this love, which cannot be conquered (Romans 8:37–39).
