An Indulgent Old Man

The god which the vast majority of professing Christians 'love' is looked upon very much like an indulgent old man, who Himself has no relish for folly, but leniently winks at sin. Yet for one sin the fallen angels were thrown out of Heaven,   our first parents were banished from Eden,    Moses was excluded from the promised land,  Elisha's servant smitten with leprosy, and  Ananias and Sapphira were cut off from the land of the living.

But men refuse to believe in this God, and gnash their teeth when His hatred of sin is faithfully pressed upon their attention.

Sinful man was no more likely to devise a holy God, than to create the Lake of Fire in which he will be tormented forever and ever!
[A. W. Pink]
Psalm 5:5 ... The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Psalm 7:11 ... God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
Hebrews 12:29 ... For our God is a consuming fire.
Revelation 20:15 ... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
