God’s Punishment Contrasted with God’s Discipline

I. God’s Punishment

  1. The Source is God’s Wrath
  2. The Purpose is to Avenge a wrong
  3. The Relational Result is Alienation
  4. The Personal Result is Guilt
  5. The Direction is towards Nonbelievers

II. God’s Discipline

  1. The Source is God’s Love
  2. The Purpose is to Correct a wrong
  3. The Relational Result is Reconciliation
  4. The Personal Result is a Righteous Lifestyle
  5. The Direction is towards His Children

I claim no originality for the preceding outline. It is shared from Source: Robert S. McGee, The Search for Significance, p. 86 

Until next time,
