The time of collision and judgement is coming. But God's judgement isn't about fire and brimstone raining down. It's about God setting all things right. It's about God destroying injustice, violence, hatred, greed, and the like. It's the burning away of the chaff and impurity that is within each of us. If we choose to cling to ways of injustice, greed, and violence, then judgment will sting. But Christ calls us to repent and to bear the fruit of the Kingdom. May it be so for us.
