Words of Comfort: Justice in Heaven

“Ray you are quite sick minded person. Thank you for telling me how I think and then on that assumption deem me to Hell. Then tell me that the guy who sexually assaulted the 4 year old girl (Wales, UK), chopped her up and disposed of her body in the furnace can go to Heaven because he can 'repent'. Do you know what, I don't want to go to Heaven if it is full of lying repenting rapists and murderers." Philip W.
It's understandable that you are angered by such a heinous crime. And so you should be. It reveals something about your character. You feel that way, not because you are an animal as a result of evolution. If that was the case, all life is merely the survival of the fittest and what happened to that little girl was simply the lion devouring the baby antelope. Rather, you are made in the image of God, with a sense of right and wrong and a craving for justice when there is evil. Cultivate that indignation, it’s what makes you different from the animals and it’s what makes justice work. Now multiply that anger a million times and you will get a glimpse of the indignation of Almighty God against evil. He is wrath-filled at murderers, rapists, liars, thieves, adulterers, and fornicators, as well as those who hate, lust, covet, etc. Hell is waiting as God's place of just punishment for all who have done evil in His morally pure eyes. That’s why you need a Savior.
