Re: Some scary stuff in book of Matthew.
Believe it or not, God has you in a very good place for you right now.
That law is showing you exactly what you are and just how doomed you are.
The correct response when you see that is to then run to and cling to Jesus, who has obtained through His death and blood, your forgiveness.
To give you an idea of how Holy God is, even an angry thought toward someone is murder! Now Buster, it will be IMPOSSIBLE for you to go through the entire rest of your life without a single angry/murderous thought!
So if God is THAT HOLY, and you are THAT SINFUL, you are doomed! Who will save an awful sinner like you?? Oh, thank God for Jesus, who has obtained your forgiveness!
