One of the numerous accusations made against the Bible is that it contains contradictions. The one Book that is unique in every way is in no single phrase more unique than in the matter of its unity: yet it is in regard to that particular facet of truth that many of its enemies delight to aim their weapons, believing it to be a target worthy of a large share of their ammunition and energy. Two of the doctrines that appear to be contradictory are the doctrines of divine love and divine wrath. Are they compatible or are they opposed to each other? If one believes in divine wrath can he also believe in divine love? Is it reasonable? Is it possible? Is it truth or error? Can God be a God of love, and, at one and the same time, be a God of wrath? Can a God of love send a person to hell?
