He shows how we must guard against wanting to believe something about God but dismissing all the other biblical declarations about Godfor Gods Word is complete and must be taken as a whole. Like the Bible, God is not one-dimensional, and while he is a God of joy and peace, he will also bring every work into judgment before he offers us this joy and peace. Dont be deceived! Were warned numerous times in the Bible that those who practice evil will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21). So if we want and expect justice in this world, then we must not hope that it will be absent in the world to come.
