Critics constantly attacks against the Bible regarding the “atrocities” of God’s judgments (especially His acts of judgment in the Old Testament). How could a loving and merciful God destroy or command the destruction of hundreds of thousands of people, including women and children?
Enjoy today's audio sermon on Matthew's trilogy of parables in chapters 21-22.
We invite you to listen to this audio sermon and consider it in relation to our current times. May we all consider the tragic story of Sodom and Gomorrah and learn a lesson, lest we too receive the awful judgment of God.
In religious conversations people often argue, “I don’t believe God would send someone to hell for one…” and then they fill in the blank with whatever sin they feel is not that “big”.
Humans tend to have a different perspective on sin than God. Man, based on his own authority, decides that some sins are not as bad as others, and that some sins are not worthy of eternal punishment. Based on their own reasoning many attempt to turn some “smaller sins” into “non-sins” and thus excuse certain behaviors.
For example, some argue, “I don’t believe God will send someone to hell just because they drank a single glass of wine.” Others might say, “Oh, its just a little white lie.” In other words, drinking wine or telling a “fib” is not really a “big” deal; in fact, maybe we shouldn’t even classify them as a “sins”. Since we don’t “feel” such behaviors are sins worthy of eternal punishment, they must not be.
Today's sermon is not to be confused with our precious post titled " The Last Days". The two sermons are distinctly different sermons and are both worthy of your consideration.
