Hebrews 9:27

Judgement

Talk 3 of 6 in the series: Theology Of Two ways To Live

1 Gospel Logic

Creation – God made us from nothing for his purpose that as his image and likeness we multiply fill and subdue his world

Sin – We have rejected God, rebelling against his rule over our lives becoming the law-makers the outlaws ruling without him

God’s punishment for rebellion is death and judgement.
