Episode 481 Show Notes
From the Show
God is a God of justice who judges righteously, and, actually, this is one of humanity’s greatest problems, because individually before God, there is none righteous. God’s perfect law calls us to love God perfectly with all of our hearts, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves… The fact of the matter is, we have a hard time even loving the people we like! And the law of God, the justice of God condemns us, because God is good and we are not. That’s why, ultimately, we don’t want justice per se–not perfect justice. We want mercy. And the way God gives us mercy is that he enacted justice on his Son, Jesus, in our place.
