Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) on God's General and Special Love

"God has a general love for all mankind, and a special love for his elect. The general love of God is universal, but in the case of the non-elect, it is only temporary and will pass away, whereas his just wrath will abide on them eternally (John 3:36). The special love of God which is given only to those whom God has, from all eternity, chosen for eternal life, is an eternal love and will supersede all wrath and will be the possession of God's elect forever."
Johannes Geerhardus Vos, "God is Love" Torch and Trumpet 1:3 (August - September, 1951), 14.
