Believe in the wrath of God

 “The modern habit throughout the Christian church is to lay this subject down.  Those who still believe in the wrath of God (not all do) say little about it; perhaps they do not think much about it. . . . How often during the past year did you hear, or, if you are a minister, did you preach a sermon on the wrath of God? How long is it, I wonder, since a Christian spoke straight on this subject on radio or television . . . ? The fact is that the subject of divine wrath has become taboo in modern society, and Christians by and large have accepted the taboo and conditioned themselves never to raise the matter.”
