There is some truth in the fact that God loves all people.
(Acts 10:34 KJV) Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:At the same time He does not treat us all the same and we are not supposed to treat everyone identically. Here we see two types of personalities that are not to be given the benefit of the doubt.
“Scoffers” (3917b) are already judged. That may not seem fair. Everyone deserves another chance in our current cultural thinking, but remember the words of Jesus.
(John 3:18 KJV) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.A scoffer refuses to believe.
So? Be kind and courteous. Show agape to everyone. At the same time don’t fall into the trap of thinking that everyone is acceptable to God or that you will be accepted if you live in rebellion or rejection.
