Historic Christianity believes that Jesus satisfied God’s wrath against sinners on the cross. We find in Scripture (Rom. 3:21–25; Heb. 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10) that Jesus offered Himself as an atoning sacrifice, which removed our guilt and turned God’s wrath away from us. As a result, we are reconciled to God.
This is a foreign concept in the modern American church. Many do not believe God displays wrath, let alone gets angry. If God does not get angry at sin, can we still believe He is righteous, good and holy? If God does get angry at sin, does this make Him less righteous, good and holy?
