This is a serious question regarding Romans 9. The chapter begins with one of the most heartfelt expressions of love from Paul for his fellow countrymen, Israel, who is being hardened in part due to their continued rebellion and God's plan to engraft the Gentiles into the church. Many argue that God hates those he has hardened as non-elect reprobates, but here Paul expresses his overwhelming love and even his willingness to be accursed for their sakes. Paul, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, expresses a willingness to lay down his own life for these hardened Jews, yet are we to believe God doesn't share those feelings of love? In short, in this situation is Paul more loving and willing to sacrifice for others than the Christ He serves?
