What to do with Divine Violence

In this message Pete addresses the issue of violence in the Old Testament and emphasizes the importance of interpreting Scripture correctly. He argues that God's use of violence is not arbitrary but a last resort to eliminate evil, and His wrath is a result of love, not a lack of it. Pete reminds the audience of God's compassion and willingness to forgive, using the Book of Jonah as an example. He encourages the audience to start with faith in God's goodness and seek understanding while shining in a world that needs to see that goodness.
