There is a common misconception, or rather false doctrine, among the “modern” Christian of today, and that is that God is a God of love, and ONLY a God of love.  That God does not hate, and that grace alone is enough to secure a passage to heaven.  God DOES hate.  God hates sin.  And when God decides to turn away from you it won’t matter how graceful you believe Him to be – you will go to hell.  And you will experience the God of the Old Testament, the God of Scripture, in all His wrath and glory.
