Would God condemn the whole human race and the earth itself just because a man ate a piece of forbidden fruit? (Genesis 3:17-19).
Would God flood the entire earth, destroying over 70 million men, women and children, just because they refused to acknowledge Him as God? (Genesis chapters 6-9).
Would God destroy two of the High Priest’s sons just because they obtained fire to burn the incense from a source that He had not specified? (Leviticus 10:1-3).
Would God destroy a man just because he violated a single command, even though the act was one of national heroism? (2Samuel 6:6-7)
Would God slay a man and his wife just because they insinuated they were giving more to the church than what they really gave? (Acts 5:1-11).
Would God cast angels out of Heaven just because they exceeded the limits of the bounds He had placed on them? (2Peter 2:4; Jude 6).
Would God cause a king to be eaten with worms from the inside out just because the king failed to give Him the glory? (Acts 12:20-24).
Would God reap vengeance on every man and woman just because they did not know, or did not obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ? (2Thessalonians 1:7-9).
Jesus Christ is the only reason God is withholding His anger (1John 2:2). Those who turn their back on the Truth, are “treasuring up for themselves the wrath of God in the day of Judgment” (Romans 2:5-8). — Toby Miller
