You Mean To Tell Me God Actually Executes Judgement?

Naaa...couldn't be true. God is love! God couldn't possibly be angry with sin. God couldn't possibly have a righteous wrath stored up for me.

If that's your line of thinking, then an article like this probably makes you angry or hurts you. But until we understand the depths of our own sin, there will be absolutely nothing amazing about grace.

Here's the article you need to read...

Great Post. God has really been putting his Wrath in my face the past few weeks. This past Sunday I had the opportunity to preach at my home church and I began with discussing God's Wrath, how dreadful it is, how much misery he can stir, how much we all deserve it.

Followed it up by the fact that God's Wrath is why we need a saviour.

The Pastors wife leaned over to me after the sermon and said that this past week he got three notes from members saying that they wished he would stop preaching on wrath that they all were secure and knew where they were going.

I am afraid that is why most preachers today skirt around God's wrath. Like the article, they want to see a cuddly God who will just take care of all their needs. The sad part is that in doing so, they miss the greatest need of all, to be saved from that which they do not want to hear about.
