Dear Nuray,

>> you asked "If your God loves you, why not others"

Well my God loves you as much as He loves me, because He is also your God and you are equally dear to Him.

God is nothing but love, Nuray. It is not up to me to convince you this. I am quoting some verses from the Holy Bible which have had a profound effect in my own life. Read these with an open mind and may His Words will become flesh in you.

John 3:16. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

He came to earth in human form to save sinful and unfaithful people like us. Even when we are in the act of sin, He loves us while hating our sins What else is this but love ? And what is the nature of God's love ? That is why we call our God our Father, he loves us like a father loves his children, always caring for their well being and always ready to forgive them, provided they turn away from sinning. Read below.

1 Cor 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1 Cor 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Cor 13:6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1 Cor 13:7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Cor 13:8 Love never fails.

1 Cor 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

If you understand God's love for you, you have already known Him. You cannot understand His love by your intelligence or intellect, logic or reasoning, piety or good deeds or by the teachings handed down to you by your forefathers. I had tried all this but failed. You can only know His love if you seek him and open your heart to him. As usual He is always waiting for you.
