Speaker: Lukus Counterman - If a man breaks the law by robbing a bank, he is arrested, taken before a judge, and tried. If found guilty, a sentence is passed and justice is served. It would not be just for the judge to turn a blind eye to the offense. Nor would it do for the judge to simply give the man a slap on the wrist. The law was broken: and justice demands that the thief face the legal penalty for his actions. What is true in the government of our land is true in the government of the universe. Those who have broken God’s law have been tried and found guilty. As the just Judge of the universe, God cannot turn a blind eye to sin. Nor can He merely give a slap on the wrist. Sentence has been passed and a penalty set. While it is a terrible thing to fall under the judgment of human courts, it is another thing altogether to fall under the judgment of a holy God.
