I think " unconditional " love is a misnormer!
Love given ALWAYS has a response!
True love is another matter to me as between a man and a woman,........
I have NEVER found it so therefore I doubt it exists!

The only time I can ever say I fell truly unconditionally in love was when my children were born!

Yet again Jn.3:16 is how I stand in my spiritual sense!

One could ponder whether the very opposite exists. Unconditional hatred. I feel this towards Stalin and other evil dictators the world has known. But I never knew the guy personally.

I see the look on my brothers' face when he talks about his grandkids. Close enough to unconditional I reckon.

I have learned never to " hate"!
The only one it effects is the one doing it!
That being said despicable people that do despicable things recieve no compassion from me!

Hey I'm just a frail human with all the emotions!

Only from God. Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have some conditions. Some to higher degree than others, but conditions nonetheless.

How can it be unconditional hatred when you hate them for what they did? That is conditional.

I think if a person can produce it or believe in it based on their own perception/definition of what that looks like, then yes.

I doubt true love between a man and a woman exists, too..

God loves me without conditions.
