 Re: Hate, Love & Anger

Having seen so many times in the scriptures how much God hates sin, and how God also
hates the sinner, if it weren't for grace through Jesus' righteousness in Christians, I'd be
terrified.

I listened to the Finney teaching on God's Anger, and kept on thinking to myself how
grateful I am to be under grace when I sin, for at least I have time to repent as soon as the
Holy Spirit convicts me of having failed again.

And I know that that same grace will keep me safe at my death or the rapture, if I have
stumbled, and bring a few sins with me to Jesus' feet.

That is why I do not fear God's wrath. I reverance Him, worship and value Him, praise
and thank Him. But I feel no fear.

But no one else does either, and they don't have the excuse of having Jesus' righteousness
covering them!

The topic of the Wrath of God is so avoided in most churches, that, as a Christian, one
would think that everyone in the churches are all believers! Yet we know that to be
untrue!

Does anyone speak of sin anymore, or the result of it in this life, and eternity?

I want to take one example of what the scriptures say about God and sin:

[color=993300]Proverbs 6:16. These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an
abomination unto him:
17. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
[/color]

Yes, God hates sin, and sinners, evidently false witnesses and those that sow discord being
high on God's list of sins He hates.

But He loves the sinners as well, for He sent Christ to die for everyone.

Why does no one says these things in church? Don't the Pastors and Evangelists know that
they will be held responsible for soft soaping these topics?

With their gift for teaching and evangelism, will grace cover them, who do not even try to
win souls, are their hearts so seared that they cannot hear the Holy Spirit rebuking them?

When you hit the Great White Throne Judgement, it will because you did not believe,
because you were not taught why you should believe,
