“I am certain that to preach the wrath of God with a hard heart, a tearless eye, and an unfeeling spirit is to harden men, not benefit them.” -Charles Spurgeon
“The ferocious part of the Psalms serve as a reminder that there is in the world such a thing as wickedness and that… is hateful to God.” -C.S. Lewis
“What fools are they who for a drop of pleasure, drink a sea of wrath.” -Thomas Watson
”Any sin is more or less heinous depending upon the honor and majesty of the one whom we had offended. Since God is of infinite honor, infinite majesty, and infinite holiness, the slightest sin is of infinite consequence. The slightest sin is nothing less than cosmic treason when we realize against whom we have sinned.” – Jonathan Edwards
“The judgment on the Canaanite city or Jericho was horrific, but someone was spared. It wasn’t the most upstanding, most impressive, most religious, or most important person. It was the person who believed what God said and sought to come under his promise of grace for sinners. For anyone and everyone who seeks God’s mercy while it may be found, experiencing that mercy is not a possibility but a certainty.” -Nancy Guthrie, The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books
“There are three things that earthly riches can never do; they can never satisfy divine justice; they can never pacify divine wrath, nor can they ever quiet a guilty conscience. And till these things are done man is undone.” -Thomas Brooks
“Man in sin is like a fly pitting itself against atomic power!” -Martyn Lloyd-Jones
BTW NOTE: Lloyd-Jones isn’t referring the destructive power of sin, but the futility of rebellion against God.
