God of Repentance Part 3 – Jonah Study 8

Cary Cox, from Jonah 3:8b-10. We answer some important questions about God himself, in order to think rightly and biblically about God. What does it mean that God relents from sending disaster? Does he change his mind? How can he change his mind if he knows all things? How can God just forgive sinners without justice being served?

The Vindication of God – Romans Study 17

Cary Cox, from Romans 3:25-26. The cross is a statement about the character of God, showing that he is not soft on sin. After passing over sins before the cross, forgiving people all over the Old Testament, it could be asked how God could be so patient and forgiving, and still be a just God. The cross answers that objection once and for all, vindicating the honor of the justice of God. God forgives sinners because Christ paid for sins at the cross!
