Great thoughts! I am reminded of Romans' 'kindess and severity' of God's mercy? The same epistle that speaks about Father having handed over ALL to disobedience, so that He would have have mercy on ALL.

And yet, His Love is still active (just as we are called not to only love in words but in deed - according to James' epistle, gathering hot goals on the head's of those who hate us, according to Paul), He suffers even with those that He had to give over to their own desires (the severity of His mercy). For the eperience of our sin alone would only lead to disillusionment and we would despair without the proclamation of His kindess that leads to repentance

'Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!"Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?""Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?"For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen' (Romans 11:33-36).
