PRINCIPLES OF KINGDOM LIVING

LESSON 18

ETERNAL JUDGMENT

The subject before us is a notable one. It is the last foundational truth to be listed in (Hebrew 6:1-2). Some have suggested that a God of love will not judge or punish any person.  We know that our God is a God of love, yet we also know that He is a God of

justice as well.

(3)    WHY MUST THERE BE A JUDGMENT?

A.  Ungodliness (Jude 15); (II Peter 3:7); (2:6).
