No Tenderness

I believe that a divine purpose lies behind Scripture passages that our intelligence might have initial difficulty in accepting. Augustine remarked, “Truth is present in Scripture, absolutely – Scripture cannot lie”.  Many are hostile and opposed to the Gospel. Sometimes the words of the Lord hurt and offend until there is nothing left to be hurt or offended.

“Jesus had no tenderness whatsoever toward anything that was ultimately going to ruin a person in his service to God”. (Oswald Chambers).
