Is God Angry With the World?
During the Coronavirus pandemic, one question you may have asked is, “Did God send this virus because He is angry with the world?”
In the past God sent many plagues when He was angry with a nation: He sent plagues on the Egyptians until Pharaoh allowed the people of Israel to leave; He sent a plague that killed 70 000 people when King David disobeyed God; He sent a three year-long drought on northern Israel when they worshipped other gods.
But did God send the Coronavirus because He was angry with us?
I don’t know. But I do know this: God hates sin. God is a righteous God, and the Bible says that He is angry with the wicked every day! Have you ever lied? Have you ever hurt someone out of anger? Have you ever disobeyed your parents?
We have all done wicked things. In fact, the Bible says that we all deserve death because of our sins!
Is there any way to escape this punishment of death?
Yes! God sent Jesus Christ to take our punishment instead of us. He died so we can live. He did even more: He died so we can live forever!
