God is love – He won’t punish me

Proverbs 17:15   “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

Proverbs 11:21, “Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, …”

Who are the wicked?  All who have sinned against God.

Romans 3:23  “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”

How can  a person avoid God’s punishment?

The Purpose of Life

Todd Friel of Wretched Radio does an excellent job on his radio show.  The following is a clip of him witnessing on the campus of Georgia Tech.

purpose

Todd is correct that the purpose of life has to do with God’s attributes. I use this idea to counter the objection that eternal punishment is unjust.  The greatest commandment is the purpose of life: to love God (Matthew 22:37)  Those who love God go to be with Him in heaven (John 14:23).  In addition, since the penalty for sin has been paid by Jesus (1 Peter 2:24), they are not punished themselves (Romans 8:1).  Those who don’t love God must be separated to a place reserved for people who don’t love Him (Revelation 20:15).  In addition, since they did not receive a pardon for their sins, they themselves must pay the penalty (2 Peter 2:4).

What is Sufficient Evidence to Prove Christianity?

Key Point: Sufficient Evidence – when the evidence is sufficient, a point is proven to an individual.  But depending on ones reason, emotions, or will, it may be that no amount of evidence will be able to prove Christianity to a person.
