Contrary to the loving, gentle Jesus that wouldn't harm a fly, the Bible paints a very different picture of the God that has made us in His own image and bought us with His own blood. False teaching on the Grace of God has deceived many into believing that they can embrace sin and escape the Judgement of God.
Hebrews 12:25-29. See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, 'Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.' The words 'once more' indicate the removing of what can be shaken-that is, created things-so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our 'God is a consuming fire.'
