I haven’t done my due diligence in studying those who downplay the wrath of God and how the cross is or is not necessary to appease it, but it’s easier for me to see consistency in God’s character to and elevates the cross and its importance.
“The love of God and the wrath of God are obverse sides of the same thing, like two sides of a coin. The wrath of God is as positive as His love. God cannot be in agreement with sin. When a man is severed from God, the basis of his moral life is chaos and wrath not because God is angry, like a Moloch; rather it is His constitution of things. The wrath of God abides all the time a man persists in the way that leads away from God; the second he turns, he is faced with His love.” – Oswald Chambers
