Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment

Most of the time we end up interpreting certain scriptures through the filter of other certain scriptures.

When it comes to the judgment, wrath, and condemnation verses often we are suppose to take them at face value and very literal (even though they are mostly written metaphorically etc...), but when it comes to the seemingly, more inclusive verses such as 1 Tim 4:10, Romans 5:12-21, and 1 Cor 15:20-26 (just to cite a few, there are many more at the bottom of the page) it seems we end up interpreting those verses through the "judgment" scriptures, and taking those verses literal is a big no no.

What if we did it the other way around? What if we interpreted all scripture through the lens of love/Jesus?

Other seemingly really inclusive verses...

John 12:32, acts 3:19-21, 2 Cor 5:19, phil 2:9-11, eph 1:10, col 1:16-23, 1 tim 2:4, Titus 2:11, heb 2:9, 2 pet 3:9, 1 John 2:2.
