|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “But God shows His anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.”–Romans 1: 18 (NLT)|
Why is God angry at sinful people? Because they have substituted the truth about Him with a lie. They have stifled the truth God naturally reveals to all people in order to believe anything that supports their own self-centered lifestyles. God cannot tolerate sin because His nature is morally perfect. He cannot ignore or condone willful rebellion.
God wants to remove the sin and restore the sinner—and He is able to, as long as the sinner does not stubbornly distort or reject the truth. But God shows His anger against those who persist in sin. Make sure you are not pursuing a lie rather than the true God. Don’t suppress the truth about Him merely to protect your own lifestyle.
