Pilgrim’s Progress revisited | Christiana on the narrow way ~ The Word of God and literature and art



“Apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, we’re not just wayward children, wandering from a loving Father.  We are traitorous rebels, fighting against our King and trying to dethrone Him…

“Today’s concept of God altogether misses the point. The writer describes Him as a consuming fire. We don’t like that idea. We want a malleable God, a God who needs us, not a God who is stern and just. We see this in the Cross. When the Lord Jesus “became sin for us,” it wasn’t just a display of “love,” it was a display of unmitigated justice. If you want to know what God thinks of sin and sinners, look at the Cross. While it’s true that His death paid for sin, it took His death to do that. I can’t even begin to put into words what I’d like to write about this.”


Hebrews 12:25-29, Escape
