    "equally"?

    Hello,

    When we say "God loves everyone equally", what does "equally" mean in this context? Does it mean:

    1. "God does not love us as unique beings" (word equally has the meaning of "in the same manner"; if God loves us in the same manner, it can "possibly" mean that God does not love us as unique beings?)

    OR

    2. "God does not love one person more than another" (i.e. if love can be quantified, the amount of love God has for each of us is the same or is "equal")

    OR

    3. Both 1 and 2.

    OR

    4. It has different meaning than 1, 2, or 3.

    ????
    Thank you,

    Re: "equally"?

    I would go with option 2.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
