Anger and Wrath an Evidence of God’s Love

   Posted by: admin   in Gospel Gems

“God’s love is so perfect that He lovingly requires us to obey His commandments because He knows that only through obedience to His laws can we become perfect, as He is. For this reason, God’s anger and His wrath are not a contradiction of His love but an evidence of His love. Every parent knows that you can love a child totally and completely while still being creatively angry and disappointed at that child’s self-defeating behavior.”

Dallin H. Oaks, “Love and Law”, Ensign, Nov. 2009, 27
