The Difficult Doctrine of God’s Wrath

About God – Part 14

Listen to podcast audio:

The wrath of God is not a popular topic in the church today. Gary Wilkerson and Keith Holloway discuss the difficult doctrine of God’s wrath and its importance in living out our Christian faith.

Key Points from the Podcast

• God’s judgment serves as both discipline for the righteous and destruction for the unrighteous.
• What is the difference between God’s judgment and his wrath?
• God is not some angry deity waiting for people to mess up so that he can punish them. He is patient, wishing for people to repent and turn to him.
• Our Christian faith must be informed by a correct doctrine of God’s wrath.
