In Christ Alone

The link to the article in Christianity Today

Discusses the concern over “In Christ Alone” a song that has been sung in a number of Presbyterian churches that I have attended is not “theologically sound” because of the words “wrath of God.”  I’m of the mind that God is a god of compassion and love but God also abhors evil and sin.  When Christ died on the cross, he gained victory over sin and that includes evil.  God’s wrath as portrayed in the song is not so much directed at our salvation, rather it is that through Christ, we have been redeemed.

I’m not sure why the committee at the GA PCUSA doesn’t understand that.  I got it out of their own Book of Confessions.
