Pastor Chuck Swindoll

The God of Wrath and Rescue, Part 1

July 31, 2023

Like an expertly cut diamond, God’s character is multifaceted. All His attributes work together to magnify the light of His glory. Two such attributes are His mercy and justice.

These qualities seem to be at odds with one another, don’t they? How can God show mercy with one hand while dealing out judgment with the other? Jesus’ boldest disciple tackled this question head-on in 2 Peter 2:4–11.

Ponder this quandary with Pastor Chuck Swindoll. While the complex fullness of God’s character remains a mystery, followers of Jesus Christ can rejoice in the wonder of who God is.

References: 2 Peter 2:4-11

Few moments feel worse than when you realize that someone took advantage of you. Sadly, people experience this kind of abuse every day. When it happens within the walls of the church, the exploitation feels even worse. Counterfeit faith leaders appear to follow God, but they deceptively deny God’s truth for their own selfish gain. Learn with Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he exposits 2 Peter 2:1–3 to show how false shepherds operate, how to identify one, and how to respond when you encounter them.

All people have a desire to know the truth. Some look for truth by accumulating knowledge, while others turn to their feelings to define truth for themselves. In the days of the early church, the apostle Peter knew that Christians wrestled with questions about discerning right from wrong. So in 2 Peter 1:12–21, he pointed them to the source of divine truth. In this message, Pastor Chuck Swindoll shows that Scripture alone contains the sure, authoritative, and inspired revelation of Jesus Christ. Feed on the truth of God’s Word today.
