Declaring Evil to be Holy
God shows in Christ not only that He can punish sin, but that He can do the infinitely greater thing of justly declaring evil creatures Holy - and then make them so.

Amen, this is a good, balanced, and hopeful/helpful observation.

I view the cross as the ultimate SOLVED paradox. Without it, we would be hard pressed to reconcile God's holiness and His love (attributes which, to Him, are probably the same thing - but in our perspective seem to be at cross purposes).

Pun half-intended I suppose!
