The Bible talks about the “wrath of the lamb” in the book of Revelation and about “God’s wrath” in many other places. Does God have a wrath? Does a lamb have a wrath?
According to dictionary.com, wrath means:
1. strong, stern or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; ire.
2. vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger.
If the dictionary is as far as we are willing to go in our search to understand the essence of God’s wrath, we will arrive at a very sad conclusion. Look once again at the words that this approach will lead us to associate with a dimension of God’s character: stern, fierce, deeply resentful indignation, ire, and vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger. Did Jesus reveal God to be this way?
· seeks to make a difference in the world by providing a resource for those who have questions about God and the trustworthiness of His character, exploring the depths of God's character of love and to reveal that love through every means possible.
· to educate and explain why God, in Jesus, came to this world, not with overwhelming power and force, but rather unnoticed as a baby and dependent on one of his own creatures to provide for his care and upbringing; why God in human form washed the dirty feet of his betrayer and dried them with a towel; why He did not strike back when his own creatures put him to death and instead offered them forgiveness.
· to provide media resources (audio, video, powerpoint slides, pdf documents, etc.) pointing to Jesus as the perfect reflection of who God is.
