Reading: Jonah 3
Quotes: “When God does not punish sin, it seems to indicate that he is unrighteous…” –Wayne Grudem in his Systematic Theology
“It’s incredibly arrogant to pick and choose which incomprehensible truths we embrace. No one wants to ditch God’s plan of redemption, even though it doesn’t make sense to us. Neither should we erase God’s revealed plan of punishment because it doesn’t sit well with us. As soon as we do this, we are putting God’s actions in submission to our own reasoning, which is a ridiculous thing for the clay to do.” –Francis Chan in Erasing Hell

Is Hell Incompatible with a Loving God? (Reasonable Faith by Bill Craig)
