Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Justice of God, Part 4 of 4 (The Mysteries of God)

Many people can’t accept the idea of God judging unbelievers eternally in hell, especially those who’ve never heard the gospel. Fairness would seem to demand another solution. So why does the justice of God require such severe punishment? Is spreading the gospel crucial?

Coming to grips with the justice of God is not easy. He’s seen as both loving and vengeful. But once we understand how much God hates sin and what He did for us in sending His Son to atone for that sin, things become clear.

Medieval art portrays the afterlife with saints in glory above and sinners in torment below. Hell is seen as a place of fire, the place the lost will inhabit for eternity. But hell is no longer taken seriously in our “enlightened” age.

Some ask if God has relaxed His standards in the New Testament. No. The book of Hebrews says that “our God is a consuming fire.” Knowing what He’s done for us through Christ, we should expose every dark corner of our lives to the light, allowing us to serve God with cleansed hearts.

Many people think God is more tolerant now than He was in the days of Old Testament Israel. Christians don’t stone people for sin like the Hebrews did. So has God changed? God has not changed His mind toward sin.

There’s a difference between Old Testament regulations and New Testament commands. The New Testament fulfills the requirements of the Old, and introduces a new category of people known as the church. But through it all, God has not changed.

In the Old Testament, God seems harsh. In the New Testament, He is sometimes seen as a God of love. Many people wonder if a kinder, gentler God emerged after Jesus came. But God has actually never changed in His desire to punish sin.

Before Jesus voluntarily gave His life, He said, “It is finished.” There are no sufferings we could undertake to remove sin’s penalty. Only the perfect sacrifice of Jesus could do that. The death of Jesus gives life to all who believe.

If you’re a dad and your son is gravely ill in the hospital, you would do anything to trade places and bear your son’s pain. The same is true for God the Father. When His Son Jesus agonized on the cross, God felt the pain His Son was enduring, knowing that Jesus was paying the price for our sin.

The death of Jesus on a Roman cross is the turning point of history. That act of obedience to the Father made possible the salvation of all who believe on His Son. Jesus said, “There is no greater love than a man lay down His life for His friends.”
