Welcome! I quote John 3:16 often, where Jesus tells us how much God loves the world, but how about verse 17, where He tells us that he didn’t come to judge us. If anyone deserves His judgment, it is me, but listen to His words.
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 1
So let us praise the Lord that he gave us this wonderful salvation, taking our judgment upon Himself. Trish writes,
Happy New Year! It takes 20/20 vision to be happy! The wisest man ever, other than Jesus Christ, King Solomon wrote: “Where there is no vision [redemptive revelation of God], the people perish: but he that keepeth the law [walks in love], happy is he.” 1
“In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.” 2
A Judge Responds…
“Having read your testimony, I wanted to write to you. It feels a bit strange to address, in person, someone who is a living (though notorious) historical figure. At age 61, I’m old enough to remember your crimes, which horrified me than and still do today. Even given the many factors which caused you to act the way that you did, your actions are still very difficult to understand.
