Quote of the Week - Stephn T Davis on the Wrath of God
I think we ignore the concept of the wrath of God at our own cost.
Indeed, I would argue for the radical proposition that our only hope as
human beings is the wrath of God. (It is also true, of course, that our
only hope is the grace of God, but that is another matter). The wrath of
God shows that we do not live, as so many today suppose that we do, in a
random and morally neutral universe. God’s wrath shows us that right
and wrong are objectively real, they are to be discovered, not created.
The wrath of God is our only hope because it teaches us the moral
significance of our deeds and shows us how life is to be lived.
