A One-Sided God Is Not a Real God

To minimize God's wrath is to minimize God's love. One grows, and wanes, with the other.
Religion cannot be made joyful simply by looking on the bright side of God. For a one-sided God is not a real God, and it is the real God alone who can satisfy the longing of our soul.
--J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Liberalism, 134

Amazing how relevant the 100-year-old founder of the OPC continues to be.
