Many people, even Christians, are profoundly uneasy with the concept of God punishing people in the Old Testament. In this lesson we consider how the Lord treated sin in the past, and how He does today. Are all sins the same in His eyes, or are some worse? What does it mean in 1 John 5 about sins that lead (or don’t lead) to death? What is the responsibility of the church regarding dealing with the sin of its members? May we all benefit from a better understanding of the consequences of sin!
