God’s Wrath is the Ultimate Source of All that is Wrong with Us

Whether we admit it or not, the ultimate source of our guilt, anxiety, depression, and stress is God’s wrath and we cannot wish this problem away by denying it or by numbering our sense of it by focusing on the more manageable symptoms.  There is only one way to be liberated from the condemnation of God’s law.  We have to stop rationalizing our lives, questioning God’s word, and defending ourselves.  We were created to be talkers, answering God’s speech with our own “Amen!”
