“Eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil…” (Romans 2:7)
Day after day, month after month, year after year our senses are shocked by the senseless violence and wickedness of mankind. Sadly, there are some things that are so heinous that the only proper response is anger. In fact, not only would anger be the only proper response––a lack of anger would be wrong.
To realize this is to better understand the wrath of God––wrath is the holy revulsion of God’s being against evil. The wrath of God is often misunderstood, but it is real, it is pure, it is personal, it is perfect, it is revealed and it is demonstrated. This lesson examines how God’s wrath is perfect just as His love, holiness and justice is perfect.
