Many in the world get mad at God for plenty of reasons. Some for what he allowed to happen to them, others allowing them to do such stupid things in their past. Others on the other hand hate him because of who he is. Some will say God is terrible because he ‘sends people to hell’ or inflicts judgement upon groups of people throughout history. That’s what this verse is talking about.
But if our unrighteousness highlights God’s righteousness, what are we to say? I use a human argument: Is God unrighteous to inflict wrath? Absolutely not! Otherwise, how will God judge the world? Romans 3:5-6
Just like the failures of his followers magnify his faithfulness and loving kindness, some people will say then then that we shouldn’t be judged for our sins because we are just making God seem better than before. The problem is that, if he doesn’t judge evil and sin, is he really considered good and righteous then? Certainly not!
Let’s bring it back to real life shall we? We all remember the killing of George Floyd and the cops that were there. Of course the murderer was evil but what about the cops that stood there and watched it happen. They were in power to stop the murder but they watched it happen. So I ask you again, are they good perfect people then? Since they saw evil being done but did nothing to stop it.
Of course everyone jumps up in fury and says NO!! But that’s exactly what you expect God to do. You expect him to see the evil that you do and turn a blind to it and then bring you to heaven despite you not even repenting of it and asking for forgiveness.
So if you hate God, understand that it can’t be because he is ‘sending you to hell’, you’re running towards it with gusto and choosing that path when you see the wrong that you do and not fight against it. You may be mad at God for plenty of things in your perspective, but don’t be mad at God when he does what a righteous judge is supposed to do.
Don’t expect to do all the evil and sin That you want without expecting some kind of retribution. So I ask you again, is God righteous when he judges you and others sins, or is he like the cops that let a murder happen right in front of them without acting to stop it.
