Justice and Judgment
Who knew the author of a New Testament book would agree with Tupac about something? But he goes: only God can judge.
And throughout the Epistle to the Hebrews, God comes off as pretty judgmental. Of course, the author is clear that God's not trying to be a meanie—he's actually good and just and loving. (Fancy that!)
Judgment and love? Sounds pretty biblical to us.
