Knowing God- Part 34

The concept of propitiation, of God's wrath being appeased, is a key part of the gospel. Most people are familiar with propitiation from a pagan perspective. The Biblical version, however, turns the pagan version of propitiation on its head.

Knowing God- Part 33

The jealousy of God deserves at least two proper Christian responses. First, we should be zealously devoted to Him while understanding the difference between being zealous and being a zealot. Second, the church must be on guard against lukewarmness.

Knowing God- Part 31

Those who refuse the offer of God's goodness will have to face the fact of His severity. There is goodness from God that applies to all, but there is other goodness that is conditional. Reject the conditions and all that is left is consequences. God is long-suffering, but will not tolerate hearts of unbelief.

God's goodness is closely related to His generosity. In Scripture we see His blessings and His provision toward all mankind and His special provision of salvation that only some receive. But, how are we to understand the idea that all is from God?

Romans 11:22 refers to both the goodness and severity of God. Why is it that people have turned God into a Santa Claus of all goodness and no severity? At least four answers can be given.

Is the wrath of God an attribute of God, or is it something else? Some classify wrath as an attribute, others do not, and for good reason. What is God's wrath like, and how does it relate to people being "sent" to hell?

There are at least 4 key characteristics of a judge. They all apply to God as the Judge. When we think of a judge the idea of retribution suggests itself. Is God a God of retribution, or not?

In any serious discussion of God's justice there is a question that is bound to arise. What about the conquest of Canaan? Was it just for Israel to kill every man, woman, and child? This morning we tackle this very difficult question.

How do you feel about the word "justice?" We generally want justice applied to others and mercy applied to us. A world without justice is a terrible thing, but we must exercise great caution in our judgments.
