God's Wrath - A Neglected Subject

The modern man ceases to accept God exists for he constantly runs away from this thought not only that God is but we must answer Him for this God is angry and is really red hot We all know we're not perfect but not too bad but does the Bible teach this? certainly not Jesus spoke more on hell than on heaven if this is true then why is it not more taught? The subject of God's wrath is somewhat rejected today's preachers don't like to offend because the hearer doesn't welcome this so no one tells it then the soul can't mend In the modern church, there's little seriousness so then no godly repentance to bear fruit in years of old where sin convicted men shed tears knowing their real depravity sin was at its root The modern preacher seeks to comfort people but God says yes only after the heartfelt cry what must I do to be saved? when truly broke they feel divine wrath so seek peace before they die Scripture presents God in His holy character His wrath and His love which is equally joined this love is never valued till His wrath's understood by the sinner deserving wrath knows I'm no good (A look at today's superficial church as preachers seek not to offend his listeners but by neglecting the subject of God's wrath on sin instead end up dishonouring God)

Yes I do agree with you Gordon - hope you are well my dear friend - I don't have time for some preachers and often prefer to go to our church, light candles and sit there and pray on our own. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Thanks Jennifer, glad you agree and I understand how you feel, for that reason we'll be moving church for that reason in the next few weeks. I am well looking forward to going down to Keswick Bible Convention in a few days for a week's break. Blessings and hugs, Gordon

Incredibly true to modern times. Sadly, without the knowledge of His wrath and what He expects of us, we will never truly understand.

Money keeps the church going not preaching...Many mouths to feed, lots of bills to pay... It's nice that you bring a truth to the light...
