Bob is in Hell.
God loves Bob and just wishes he did the right thing to be welcomed into Heaven.
Bill is on Earth.
He is told, “God loves you”.
Bill replies: “I seek comfort in acceptance into Heaven as opposed to eternal hellfire.”
Bill says again: “I am still thankful the statement “God loves you” isn’t negated, yet I see no comfort in it”.
Bob and Bill are hypotheticals.
How I should have phrased it all along:
Catholicism: You end up in Hell or you end up in Heaven. Nothing else matters. God loves you, but why does it matter? God’s loves the Saint and the Sinner, thus it does not impact Heaven entrance. If it does not impact Heaven entrance, why should we care?
