« The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands; and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished.. » Exodus 34 .6,7
We sometimes hear; ” God is so good as he will eventually save well everybody ”
– But kindness is not weakness. We believe in the God which the Bible speaks, just, holywhich is also love; and not the “God” of familiar language. He is faithful, the God of the Bible, both in his promises of judgment, punishment, and in his promises of grace and forgiveness.
-Kindness is not forgotten. Also distant and old as be our sins, as we do not confess to God, he does not forget. God forgives and forgets, it’s not out of weakness, indulgence and kindness, but because we accept his Son, Jesus Christ, atoned for our sins. Here’s how God can forgive us … more justify us, that is to say make us righteous, absolutely on a safe basis.
-Goodness does not compromise. Do not think that God is indulgent, he takes account of our good intentions, it rides over our little lies to only punish the most serious offenses. God is just, he is love, he is indulgent, nor weak. Those who now repent and respond to the offer of forgiveness and reconciliation are saved.
The others? … How could-they escape the judgment of God, precisely because God is righteous.
