Is God A Sugar Daddy?
Many people tend to focus on a very imbalanced view of God. They only seem to focus on His love, but never His wrath or His Hatred of sin or His hatred of the wicked. Yet, God is not only a god of love, but a god of absolute holiness who hates things – sinful things – as noted here:
“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou HATEST all workers of iniquity.” Psalm 5:5
“The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul HATETH.” Psalm 11:5
Didn’t God destroy everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah? Didn’t God destroy the entire world with a flood? Isn’t God going to come back and destroy the earth and all its inhabitants with fire, and not because He loves them:
“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the WRATH of God upon the earth.” Revelation 16:1
“God is ANGRY with the wicked every day.” Psalm 7:11
The god that many people, including professing Christians, believe is some kind of “sugar daddy god” is not found in the Bible. Surgically selecting only the nice and pleasant things about God, from the Bible, gives a person a very incomplete and very distorted view of the thrice-holy God of Scripture. God is a god of many facets, many attributes, including a love of moral purity and a hatred of sin. He loves righteousness and holiness and He hates unrighteousness and unholiness. He loves the righteous and He hates the unrighteous as noted above in the quote of Psalm 11:5. So if you disagree with this assessment of the God of the Bible, please read and study the verses I’ve quoted above until you believe them.— RM Kane
