John 3:16 Explained


I want to quickly explain John 3:16. Arguably, the most repeated verse of the New Testament.

John 3:16

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.

What it actually means:

God created himself to sacrifice himself TO himself, in order to save the world FROM himself!

Yep. Utterly ridiculous.

Thanks for reading,

One response to “John 3:16 Explained”

  1. This was one of the things said to me once by an atheist professor (not one of mine) who was from a local university (as I was attending Liberty University courses at the time) that caused me to think “Wow! I never thought of it that way!” However, I tried to push it to the back of my mind because I was invested in the ministry.
