2 Chronicles Chapter 7
3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

Bruce; You are so right; and I appreciate that you say that! We all need the Lord's mercy, and each other's every day. But setting things in order among ourselves by the Rule of the Scriptures does not make one an enemy, but a friend and a brother! When you see your neighbor doing something dangerous (perhaps because he doesn't know what he's doing); don't you want to correct an unsafe situation?

From the way Solomon prayed, and the way the LORD answered by fire and by further revelation, there can be no mistaking the point, that idols and sinning and pride is against the Law of God; and by breaking the Law comes wrath and punishment. The grace of Christ is not for releasing us from the Law, but so that we through the Spirit should show forth the teachings and works of the Law by our life.
