Spiritual Formation Conference 2012 – GOD: The Merciful Judge – with Dr. Jim Hamilton
How a biblical understanding of God’s mercy and justice aids the Christian’s walk in the gospel of grace.
The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.” (Exodus 34:6-7 ESV)
