Liberating judgement

We must ask, have we in the church not often been responsible for obscuring this liberating meaning of the message about God's final judgement, because we have preached the word of judgement loudly and urgently to the weak and defenseless, while frequently our preaching has been too soft and half-hearted when directed to the powerful of this earth.
