Oh, the Humanity!

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.
Romans 1:18

The Hindenburg was coming in for a landing in New Jersey on May 6, 1937. It was a thrilling sight, a zeppelin three football fields in length, held aloft by 7 million cubic feet of hydrogen. The blimp was luxurious, with a dining salon, lounges, and staterooms. Gigantic Nazi swastikas adorned its fins. Suddenly a flame appeared near the stern, and the blimp exploded in a ball of fire, falling tail first with flames shooting out the nose. In one moment, the wonder was turned to fiery destruction.

Without Christ we're all passengers on the Hindenburg. We may be enjoying ourselves to the fullest, but the next moment is going to bring the fires of God's wrath. That doesn't mean God is mad at us in an immature or juvenile way. The wrath of God refers to His right and necessary response to moral evil.

The good news is that we don't have to experience the judicial wrath of God. The Bible proclaims: "Having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him" (Romans 5:9). We don't have to go down with the Hindenburg.

God does not throw temper tantrums or pitch fits, but His anger against sin is intense.

To all who are interested! There is a new page on my site that will help those who are interested. The page is called "Searching for Gold." It's a page geared to helping those who want to learn more from the word of God.

Starting the week of May 24, I will post a bible study topic that you can study along with me and others. You will be able to leave comments, questions and input relating to the current bible study topic.

It will be a great time to come together as children of God and fellowship around God's word. I look forward to seeing you there and hearing from you.

May God bless you as you "Search for Gold," using the word of God.
