5 ¶ But if our wickedness serves to show the justice of God, what shall we say? That God is unjust to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.)
6 By no means! For then how could God judge the world?
7 But if through my falsehood God’s truthfulness abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner?
8 And why not do evil that good may come?–as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.
There’s a segment of Christianity which believes in an apocalyptic doomsday which must occur for Christ to return. Of those, some are so anxious for Christ’s return that they seek to speed things up. Phrases like “things have to get worse before they can get better” would sum them up.
There are those who fervently side with the modern state of Israel, no matter what unjust or immoral actions occur. Apartheid, colonization, and human rights abuses are ignored. Why? Because in their view, modern Israel is God’s holy nation and can do no wrong. She must exist for Christ to return.
