Think you cant end up in hell? Guess again. Hell does exist, and we need to examine why so many Christians have gotten away from the conclusion of why the Bible teaches everything it does. Published by clafleur in Christianity on August 29, 2009 | 8 responses
This is a day and time when Christians, and non believers have proved that we live in an ungodly nation filled with disobedient people. These people scoff at the decrees and wisdom God has set forth for our benefit as his subjects. We have only one purpose in this precious life we have been given, and that is to serve the Lord. Make no mistake, God does not run a liberal representative republic. He has not asked for our opinions on what we think is applicable or practical in his word. God is no respecter of persons, and his system of government is that of a dictator. Do what your told, or suffer the consequences. The scripture reference for those who are skeptical is Romans 1:18, “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.” Take heed to why I am preaching to you. If as a gospel preacher I don’t believe in hell, then there is no reason to preach. This scripture is the precursor to why God has dispatched preachers since the time of Paul the Apostle to echo this warning. Ignore it if you shall. Read more in Christianity
Do Good People Go to Hell?
Salvation is not something you cant earn. There are plenty of people who hang their eternal state on what good deeds they have performed. Some believe they can do acts of charity, or just live a life that is not disruptive to society, and this qualifies them for an afterlife of fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ. This is far from the truth, and the Bible teaches the opposite. Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT states, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. I am sorry to burst your bubble, but it is true what they say about the truth setting you free. If you belong to a Christian denomination that has you performing acts of service as a form of securing your spot in heaven, re-evaluate your choice of worship based on the scripture I provided. God freely gives us this salvation, and we don’t deserve it based on our behavior. As a parent you would not reward your child if they disobey your rules, but occasionally you might give them another task to redeem themselves worthy of another chance. This is what God has given us through Christ. Do good people go to eternal punishment? Hell yes they do. God laid down some foundations early on in the old testament scriptures. There are 10 commandments to point man in the direction to realize they need a savior, and cannot do it alone. The ten commandments are obvious, due to the fact that most societies, which have a population of the three major religions of the world, have some form of this theology in their community rules. You can take notice or not. Our attempts in history to live under this guideline proved fruitless, because we have a sinful nature which is the bi-product of this flesh. Let me refer you to Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.” From the beginning, God has given man a path back to fellowship with him. To miss this precious opportunity is taking an extreme chance on eternity. If you don’t believe in hell, then what is the purpose of any religion?
Hell Is Real
The Bible speaks often about hell in the new testament. Jesus spoke the most about it, because as Lord he new first hand. He understood why he was sent, and who he was sent to redeem. One story in the scripture is the rich man and Lazarus. It can be found in Luke 16:19. You will find a man who had everything in life and was unconcerned with the poor. His status was revealed based on the mention of him wearing purple clothes which was a sign of elegance in that time period. He died and opened his eyes on the other side, and didn’t like the outcome. Take notice that he was totally conscious of all his senses. If you have read the story, you will find he was in torments, and it is plural, meaning many torments. He opened his eyes, so we know he could see. He made mention of being in torments in this fire, meaning he could feel the heat. He also could taste, because he asked father Abraham to allow Lazarus to dip his finger in water, and cool the tip of his tongue. And finally, he had feelings because he requested a message be sent to his brothers who were still alive and sinning so they wouldn’t end up with him. Father Abraham wouldn’t hear it. Once you are there, the judgement is already cast, and there is no appeals.
This could very well had been a book, but it is much more important for readers to examine their hearts, and evaluate their situations on an individual basis. but this is like a cliff note, short and to the point. Let me state for the record, I have no heaven or hell to put anyone in. The judgement of men is up to Christ and is based on his decrees. He has the final say, but you have the final act. 2 Cor 13:5 states for the conclusion, Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? Have you failed the test? Do you have any faith? Have you considered whether or not you are a hell bound sinner? Just a few things to consider in final.

Sense of God around us.
Where is God? What, are you kidding me? Where is God Just take a look around God is up above God is on the ground God is in the air And everywhere we see God is inside you And God is inside me It was He that poured the water And He that made the tree God is uncontested For all Eternity God is in the birds God is in the bees God is in the giant mountain That everybody sees God’s Face is in the clouds We see high above Was God that gave us life And God that gives us love He’s The Man upstairs The one who had the plan He built his house upon the rock And not upon the sand God gave us the light And God keeps us from harm Jesus sits beside Him With hand on His right arm God will always be here Will never go away Walking right beside us Each and every day It is God who is the captain The Captain of the ship Navigating you at home Or when you’re on a trip Almighty God in Heaven Sits upon His throne But is also right beside us We are not alone It was God who made the night And God that made the day His ear is always open All we have to do is pray
