He Didn’t Lower the Standards

The Lord is in his holy temple;
the Lord’s throne is in heaven;
his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.

The Lord tests the righteous,
but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

Let him rain coals on the wicked;
fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

For the Lord is righteous;
he loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold his face. Psalm 11:4-7.

You may say, “there is a different covenant now,” but He is still the same God. Does He appear less holy than the Lord of Revelation? He still loves righteous deeds. He has not lowered His standards. He has raised us up.
