Is God angry at me when I sin?
As we go from an enemy of God to one of his children, does his view of our sin change? Before we are believers, it was impossible to please God and if we died lost in our sins, we would be condemned to Hell. However, once we are saved, we are no longer condemned. Remember, God’s condemning anger is completely absorbed by Christ when he died. That doesn’t mean God isn’t displeased when we sin. He is, but it is in a disciplinary sense rather than a condemning sense.
