Week #8 - Knowing God Study Questions - The Wrath of God - Chapter 15

THE WRATH OF GOD


PURPOSE:

To understand the nature of God’s wrath.


DISCUSSION:

1. What do you think of when you hear the word wrath? What does the word mean? Is the Bible inhibited in speaking about God’s wrath?

2. Why does the Bible speak of God anthropomorphically? What pitfall can this lead us into regarding God’s wrath?

3. What two biblical considerations meet the charge that God’s wrath is cruel?

4. What Bible passages does Packer use to support his contention that “before hell is an experience inflicted by God, it is a state for which a person himself opts”?

5. How does Packer describe Gehenna? How should our awareness of what it means to be separated from God affect our attitude toward non-Christians? our behavior toward them?

6. According to Romans, what is God’s wrath?

7. In what ways is the constant, universal disclosure of God’s wrath made?

8. How can a person be delivered from God’s wrath?

9. What are some important truths that we shall never understand if we do not face the truth concerning God’s wrath?

10. According to A. W. Pink, why should we meditate frequently on God’s wrath?

11. How do you meet the test of “readiness… to meditate upon the wrath of God”?


Optional: Read some or all of the Bible passages cited on page 149. What impression are you left with? What images are used to describe God’s wrath?


SUMMARY:

What is god’s wrath? What should our awareness of it motivate us to do?

Nine days till Christmas Day 2020. It has been twenty one days since I posted on our church blog. On Thanksgiving Day I did find time in between basting the turkey to comment again on The Wrath of God but one of my buttery fingers hit a wrong key and all my long contemplated text was GONE. I hope that before the year 2020 is gone, I will have finished reading Knowing God, commented on all the posts, and be ready to read through the Bible in 2021. I plan to use our church blog as my accountability tool by posting at least weekly and I pray for those checking in, God will use my thoughts and words to encou…

Blessed Thanksgiving Day to YOU. I have no idea who is reading my post but I thank all who are following this church book study. I mentioned on the Monday Night Facebook Live that we will be following the Advent Study in The Upper Room and I challenged everyone to see how Hope, Peace, Joy and Love will align with the last eight chapters of Knowing God.
