"The world is sinful. That’s why God doesn’t affirm it indiscriminately. God loves the world. That’s why God doesn’t punish it in justice.

What does God do with this double bind? God forgives.”

Miroslav Volf, Free of Charge, 140
It is God’s gracious interactivity, not his hyper-transcendence and/or immobility which makes him so glorious…He is the power whose very nature is to give and receive love and his rule, as the triune God, is one of love and not force. The power of God is creative, sacrificial and empowering, not coercive, and his glory consists in sharing life with, not dominating, others.
Clark Pinnock, Most Moved Mover, p. 6
