Talbott (2)

Talbott also makes this observation: God commands us to love Him above all else, and to love our neighbor as ourself.

According to the Augustinian view, there are people whom God does not love, people whom He sends to an everlasting hell. The book of Romans says, for examnple: " Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated."

Interesting that God commands Jakob to love Esau as himself, but God feels free to hate Esau.
