1 Corinthians
The Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath
August 25, 2019

1 Corinthians 4:2-5

Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.

Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

New International Version, 1984 Edition


The fifth deadly sin, wrath, starts out confusing because the most common biblical way wrath is described comes directly from God himself.  Because we know that God cannot and does not sin, this means we need to come to terms with the difference with God and ourselves.  One of the practical distinctions is God’s omniscience.
