Hell is for Real

April 3rd, 2015 Viewed 1955 times

One of the phrases that has stuck with me since my time at Bob Jones University is one that was sort of a question and answer phrase:

Speaker: The most sobering reality in the world today is that…

Response: People are dying and going to Hell today.

Some in modern Christendom have decided that Hell is not real, that all make it to Heaven.  They are shrinking from this reality because this reality is inconvenient and, frankly, difficult to accept.  How can a loving God send people to a place of eternal torment?  The answer is that in order to be good, He must be just.  That justice does not allow for sin to be excused without a substitute.

On this Good Friday, as we remember what Jesus has done by shedding His blood on the cross and taking the punishment of our sin on Himself, let us remember that there is a punishment for sin– death and Hell.  Let us remember the call, that there people that are dying and going to Hell today, and that we are tasked with the mission to reach them with the Good News of redemption.

President Obama and Good News

In an hour from now, this country will have a new President.  President George W. Bush will no longer be in power, and the decisions that face the nation will no longer be his to make.

In some ways, I’m sure that he’s thankful for leaving his post.  I can’t imagine the amount of stress that a President has in making the decisions he makes, and we tend to get stressed when the coffee doesn’t come out just right!

Alone amongst the dead header

So said the scrawling on the bathroom stall I found myself in Monday morning.  Now, I guess I could have taken it as a warning, and left immediately, but instead I found myself reflecting on the fact that we’re all mortal, and we all have a short time on Earth to make an impact.
