Life. In Light Of Eternity.

Putting Life in Perspective…and writing stories

Just Quote’n (Gilbert) #2

“It’s always interesting to watch what happens when people who insist that God would never judge them come face to face with undeniable evil. Confronted with some truly horrific evil, then they want a God of justice – and they want him now.  They want God to overlook their own sin, but not the terrorist’s. ‘Forgive me,’ they say, ‘but don’t you dare forgive him!’ You see, nobody wants a God who declines to deal with evil. They just want a God who declines to deal with their evil…if we’re going to understand just how glorious and life-giving the gospel of Jesus Christ is, we have to understand that this loving and compassionate God is also holy and righteous,  and that He is determined never to overlook, ignore, or tolerate sin.”

– Greg Gilbert in What is the Gospel?
