Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Like a Good Sandwich?

There are two sandwiches that help to keep me healthy. Both are filled with goodness. The first is Psalm 34:8: "Oh taste and see that the Lord is good." It seems that God has sandwiched that verse between two that speak of the fear of the Lord-just for those who are tempted to pervert the fact that God is good, into something it's not. We cannot separate God's goodness from His wrath. The second healthy wrath-filled sandwich is in Romans 2:4: "The goodness of God leads (us) to repentance." This is a favorite that is often leveled against the use of the Law in evangelism, and when it's used out of context to create an insipid image of God's holy character, it becomes distasteful.
