There does not exist a God Who gives to His creation an eternal punishment, except when you would call death that eternal punishment. When after the return of Christ Jeshua shall have judged the people, they either shall enter the Kingdom of God or will receive their second death, meaning it shall be totally finished with them. When death, there is no feeling at all, it is just the end of the being. The dead shall not be tortured for ever like some denominations in Christendom and in a few other religions want people to believe.
God is a god of love and He shall provide those who love Him with the blessings He wants to give them. The anger of God has come already a few times over the world, but His anger is not kept all the time. It is not wrath of envy like by human beings. It can be a short rage, like we have seen some examples in the past.
Each person has the free choice to go in a nice or in no relationship with the Creator. The consequence of denying the Divine Creator shall only be that people who do not need God shall not have to blame Him for not finding life.

The paradox of politics for Rousseau was the question of, “Which comes first, good people or good laws?” In other words, how can a democracy be legitimate when the legitimacy comes from the democracy itself which is to be founded? There is always the problem of delimiting the people and deciding who speaks for them. It is never a fixed entity, and certain groups are always excluded. According to Bonnie Honig in her book Emergency Politics: Paradox, Law and Democracy, “…even established regimes are hardly rendered immune by their longevity to the paradoxical difficulty that Rousseau names… the paradox of politics is replayed rather than overcome in time” (EP, 14).
Today’s reading is Galatians 6.
I don’t want to take away from seeing eternal punishment as God’s wrath poured out on sin, but Paul presents another facet of looking at this in Galatians 6. We reap what we sow. If we sow to the Spirit, we will reap the natural consequences of that–connection to God through the Spirit and eternal fellowship with Him. On the other hand, if we sow to the flesh, we will reap the natural consequences of that–corruption, sin and eternal separation from God. We must not see God’s wrath as if it is some fickle thing administered on people because they happened to get on His bad side. God’s wrath is the natural consequence on those who have told God through their lives that they don’t really want to be in relationship with Him. Eventually, as much as it pains Him, God will say to…
