- God is powerful, God is holy, and it is right that he is to be feared. Why all the violence? God will throw the question back at man. Why are we violent against God, and against fellow men? He gives us warnings, commands, forgiveness, grace and blessings – and yet we still go against him. We steal, slander, lust, covet, hate, lie.. In the end, he promised to judge all men one day, and he will keep his promise. Those who have been cleansed by accepting Jesus’ gift of salvation, have repented and lived to love God and others, they will be welcomed by God into his kingdom – where there is peace, joy and rest.
