You quoted John 3:16, 17 in your post, after which @leavingwt asked you the question:
Who does God love?
I note that @Psacramento responded with this:
According to John, the whole world.
Then @besty responded to your question in this way:
Define "world", and does it include Afghanistan which is currently 99.9% convinced on an alternative holy book.
At this point, you wrote in response to @leavingwt wrote:
Who can say they haven't [received] ANY love from God. The reformers never had a problem with this.
IOW, you didn't answer his question, "Who does God love?"
God loved the new world of righteousness that He purposes to bring to the earth with His son as king, for after God had taken steps to lay out in the Bible over many thousands of years what things the human family needed to know about His principles and how He had applied those principles in the past to guide the human family in advance of the Messiah, Jesus went on to advance God's purpose in having the good news of the kingdom rule destined to rule over the world of obedient mankind declared throughout the earth in explaining just how He intended to apply these same principles in the future under the government of His son.
In addition, Jesus trained ministers to explain through their preaching of the good news that our loving God means to be obedient to the doing of God's will since only those people who accept the free gift of life and who have been released from the condemnation of sin and death inherited from the common father Adam through their faith in the ransom provision that God made possible through Jesus Christ will live in that new world of righteousness. John 3:18 says:
He that exercises faith in him is not to be judged. He that does not exercise faith has been judged already, because he has not exercised faith in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
Since 33 AD, God has given all authority in heaven as well as on the earth to the Lord Jesus Christ, and without question it is through the congregations of God through the F&DS -- mere men and woman -- that Jesus is using to refine and train others that they might find those desirous of living in that new world of righteousness under the kingdom. It is true that there are many Christian denominations today -- literally hundreds of them, including those said to be non-denominational -- but even by reading the Bible on our own, one cannot help but see how Jehovah has always worked through a visible channel on earth, for under the Law, he guided His organization of Jewish worshippers for 1,545 years until the appearance of the Christ, at which point God then proceeded to organize and provide guidance through the Christian congregation for some 1,977 years until now under the oversight of the Christ.
During this time, many of the folks that were reading the Bible on their own were being given the help that they need to understand God's requirements for life in the new world of righteousness and are even being helped to understand these things, which has given them the faith to know what the future holds for them, for without their receiving help from those with holy spirit to guide them, they know that they would have continued to be in darkness spiritually, for those not actively exercising faith in the ransom provision have been judged already and will not survive God's judgment upon the world that is coming, and no undedicated/unbaptized person will be able to escape God's wrath at Armageddon by claiming ignorance of God's will. (Acts 8:31-36; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9)
Opining whether Christians are obliged to keep the Sabbath or what it was Jesus meant with respect to the commandments to love God and neighbor under the Law will not make anyone a recipient of God's grace, a recipient of His undeserved kindness. There are many folks, including drunkards, fornicators, idolaters and murderers, who, like you claim to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and in his shed blood, and yet because of their standing before Jehovah God, they are disqualified to become beneficiaries of the ransom. (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10)
Anyone opining that the ransom of Jesus Christ applies to all men are just spreading false religious ideas, since Jesus gave his life as a ransom, not for all men, but "in exchange for many," for it is only those that actually endure in the faith that will be saved. (Matthew 10:22; 20:28) Opinions that one only need live a decent life and 'do to others as you would have them do to you' to gain god's approval is also the product of false religious ideas, for only those that are doing God's will, and making public declaration of their faith that Jesus is Lord and exercising faith in their heart that Jehovah God raised Jesus from the dead are the ones that will be saved. (Matthew 7:21; Romans 10:9)
