Is Hell Really That Bad…?

Basic   -  

As an Ordained Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ it breaks my heart to hear people using the word “Hell” Flippantly. We hear others say things like, “Go to Hell”, or “It’s going to be a party in Hell”. Both of these statements are so far from the truth. Frustrated as a Pastor in a community where they think that Hell is a literal Joke, I found this article that reminds us who Hell is for, and who sends us to Hell. The article reads as follows:
Why is hell so awful? One, it was created for Satan and his demons. Secondly, because people don’t realize that hell is the absence of God.
There’s no air in hell…because God is a breath of life.
There is no peace in hell…because God is the prince of peace.
There is no comfort in hell…because God is the comforter.
There is no love in hell…because God is love.
Hell is darkness…because God is the light.
You don’t have to go there!
But there is only one way to escape it, and that is through salvation in the name of Jesus Christ.
This is our wakeup call! Time is running out! We
Need to share this and remind people that God does
Not send people to Hell. In fact, we send ourselves
To Hell by rejecting Jesus Christ as our Messiah.
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise,
as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
