Many self-proclaimed Christians believe God is some marshmallow filled Deity in the sky……so consumed with love and mercy and grace that there is no room left within him for wrath or discipline ..
Where do they get such misconceptions of God’s love ? …..Frankly , many get their unfortunate ideas from televangelist , from Mega Church ministers, and even Seminary trained preachers in rural congregations…. all of whom cherry-pic the scriptures quoted in their happy-meal messages..
God is undeniably love , in fact agape love…but he is also a jealous God..
(Proverbs 9:10… the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom . )
Why would anyone fear a marshmallow God ?
(John 3:36…He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life : and he that believes NOT the Son shall NOT see life but the wrath of God. )
Note the last three words in that scripture……
