Since the idea that God is loving is a non-negotiable part of Christian theism, it is important that the impassibilist try to show that the idea of a loving but impassible God is intelligible. Particular problems in this respect include conceptually reconciling the undisturbed blessedness of God's life with His care and concern for the world; trying to explain how a God who cannot have subjective experiences of suffering and emotion can fully understand the human condition; finding a suitable analogy for divine love from human experiences of love; and showing that the idea of love does not essentially involve emotions.
