In the song ďReckless LoveĒ by Cory Asbury, the central claim is that Godís love is ďreckless.Ē The definition of reckless is ďutterly unconcerned about the consequences of some action; without caution; careless.Ē The act of reckless is to ďact without care.Ē With that in mind, is God reckless? The Christian tradition is that God is all-knowing, max-wise, perfect. So does this make sense? No, God always perfectly knows every consequence of every action. God cannot act reckless. He is perfect. Case closed? Godís love isnít some youthful infatuation. God is steady, well planned, wise. Defenders of the song say God himself isnít reckless; his love is. Unfortunately, thatís nonsensical. Itís like saying: ďJim isnít violent, but his temper is.Ē Letís be clear: if Jimís temper is violent, then it follows that Jim is violent. By the same token, if Godís love is reckless, then it follows that God is reckless. And God, most certainly, is not. So Ö case closed now. Please, Christians, donít be deceived or as blind sheep.
