"In today's postmodern world, the truth of God's wrath has become ridiculed as an outdated caricature of deity, or worse, denied altogether as a medieval myth. Even many Christians today seem to apologize for divine vengeance as if it is a blemish in God's character, or some irrelevant doctrine of Christianity. But the truth is, the Bible clearly presents the wrath of God as a necessary attribute of His holiness. Any true knowledge of God must be grounded in a clear understanding of His sin-hating wrath. To withhold teaching on God's fury toward sin, is, in reality, idolatry - it is worshipping a god of one's own making. The holiness of God requires that He be full of righteous anger and fiery vengeance against sin." (Holman Old Testament Commentary) "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." (J.I. Packer) Have you accepted the taboo?
