March 20, 2011 at DCC: Grapes II

All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. (Ephesians 2:3)

Join us tomorrow morning at DCC as we conclude our look at the condition of man without Christ based on Ephesians 2:1-4.

The Bible refers to the wrath of God as being “just” or “righteous” and reveals that it would be folly for a Holy God to leave wrongs un-righted or sins unpunished.

This Sunday morning we will look into this idea of “righteous wrath” - can a loving God really punish guilty sinners with everlasting destruction shutting them out of His presence forever? And what about this strange concept referred to in scripture as the “wrath of the lamb”. Lamb (y) wrath? Really - I mean, I didn’t grow up on a farm; but aren’t lambs famous for being gentle even docile creatures? Just what is the Bible getting at here?
