The Bible tells us that God is love. Isn’t that a great truth? But if we left it there, we would have only a partial view of the nature of God.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. If we leave the Gospel at “God is love” then so what if man’s a sinner? And why would Christ have to die? God is love so everyone’s saved anyway, right? Well, God is love, yes, but we also must deal clearly with the great biblical truth that God is also holy, and just and cannot condone sin. In fact, the Bible says, “He will not allow the guilty to go unpunished.” It’s is this nature of God that makes the whole concept of Christ’s person and work meaningful to us. On one hand God is love, and He doesn’t want to punish us, but on the other hand God is just and He must punish sin. This is our dilemma that He solved through Jesus Christ on The Cross.
