God views sin as a sickness and illness that needs a cure, not as a crime that needs to be punished.
Many of us have a wrong and twisted view of God, for we view him as a wrathful God who wants to punish sinners.
Imagine a hospital room where a small child is dying of an illness sitting with her dad. What parent on planet earth would ever look at his own child dying of an illness and declare, “Shame on you!”
No parent would ever do that.
And this is exactly how some view God. This misunderstanding is a gross perversion of who God is. This is the devil at work to twist the love and character of God.
It is true that God hates sin. God hates sin because it’s killing his children. So God sent his Son to die for our sins, so that whoever should believe in him will not perish but have ever lasting life.
Sin is a disease and illness that needs a cure. That’s the gospel. That’s good news!
So, listen. Listen real good. God loves you!
