Peruse the Christian marketplace, and you will find a plethora of books, songs, and paintings that depict God as a loving Father. And He is that. . . . Yes, God is a loving Father, but He is also a wrathful Judge. In His wrath He hates sin. . . . And in some sense, God also hates sinners. You might ask, “What happened to ‘God hates the sin and loves the sinner’?” Well, the Bible happened to it.
