There is a song about God being “good all the time” repeated ad nauseum. The song always bothers me. It doesn’t bother me that people think God is good all the time, He is. No argument.
It does bother me because He’s lots of other things all the time too. Things that might not jive with our notion of “goodness.”
“God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.”
A day with the Lord is as a thousand years, etc. One could easily read this verse to say that God is angry all the time.
God is good all the time, but He’s also angry all the time. This is not a bad thing, unless you’re one of the folks He’s angry at, of course. Psalms contains a song about it, why don’t we sing this one ad nauseum?
If you do not love a God who is angry all the time, then you love a God who smiles warmly on things like child abuse, the Holocaust, and various other atrocities.
God is good all the time and sometimes He shows this goodness through anger. I have no problem with singing a song about God being good, let er rip. But balance is important in Theo-ology lest we create a skewed view of God. Give all attributes of God equal play.
