The Wrath of God and the Death of Jesus
The phrase, "the wrath of God" is one of the most overused and ambiguous phrases in the church today. Many pastors say this and throw the phrase around. Songs like "In Christ Alone" have come out. It says, "till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied". What does this phrase mean? What does it not mean? Is it possible that if we misunderstand this phrase, we can be led to an unhealthy view of God?
You are invited to join in on this short, yet helpful, read to consider how God's love plays out on the cross and how God's love is extended throughout eternity.
