Mike takes up the theme of earlier videos concerning hell and why God sends people there in this video from Christianity.com. Today is the day of salvation and that is the message that needs to be proclaimed to a world condemned because of its sin and its deserving of God's just wrath.

  • Wow! Such a clear, Biblical perspective! Is there a way I could embed this on my blog?

    Excellent presentation of the gospel and why it is truly good news. "Nothing in my hands I bring, simply to the cross I cling."

    This is impossible for my fallen nature to accept. I say God is unjust.

  • It's funny how the Apostle Paul took time to write about men having short hair and women remaining silent in the church but he never talked about Hell. He talked about judgment and punishment for sins but he never used the word Hell. It's amazing the things we believe our loving God will do to those who reject Him. Does His love & mercy endure forever like the Scriptures teach or not?

  • Your concept of hell is not biblical.

    Where does Hell show up in the Old Testament?
    Not even a single mention in the entire book of Acts? Or in the epistles? Not one? Quite striking. In your thinking, either the apostles did not understand the doctrine of hell (as you seem to) or they were craftily leaving it out as one of the final destinations of man for all eternity.

    Interestingly, hell doesn't show up in the Gospel of John.

    So, we're left with 11 references to "hell" in Matthew, Mark and Luke (when you remove the duplicate references). And the word translated is "Gehenna" the dump outside Jerusalem.

    Most interesting, how do you view Rev 20, where "Hell" is cast into the "lake of fire"? Hell is cast into a bigger hell? No, the same scripture tells us that the "lake of fire" symbolically represents the "second death" (chording perfectly with the OT belief of Sheol).

  • Guest - Whosoever

    (1) Everyone will exist eternally either in heaven or hell (Daniel 12:2,3; Matthew 25:46; John 5:28; Revelation 20:14,15).

    (2) Everyone has only one life in which to determine their destiny (Hebrews 9:27).

    (3) Heaven or hell is determined by whether a person believes (puts their trust) in Christ alone to save them (John 3:16, 36, etc.).
    Key Passages About Hell

    (1) Hell was designed originally for Satan and his demons (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).

    (2) Hell will also punish the sin of those who reject Christ (Matthew 13:41,50; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).

    (3) Hell is conscious torment.

    Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth”
    Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched”
    Revelation 14:10 “he will be tormented with fire and brimstone”

    (4) Hell is eternal and irreversible.

    Revelation 14:11 “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night”
    Revelation 20:14 “This is the second death, the lake of fire”
    Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”

    Erroneous Views of Hell

    (1) The second chance view – After death there is still a way to escape hell.

    Answer: “It is appointed unto men once to die and after that the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

    (2) Universalism – All are eternally saved.

    Answer: It denies the truth of salvation through Christ which means that a person decides to either trust in Christ or else he/she rejects Christ and goes to hell (John 3:16;3:36).

    (3) Annihilationism – Hell means a person dies like an animal – ceases to exist.

    Answer: It denies the resurrection of the unsaved (John 5:28, etc. – see above). It denies conscious torment (see above).

    Objections to the Biblical View of Hell

    (1) A loving God would not send people to a horrible hell.

    Response: God is just (Romans 2:11).

    God has provided the way of salvation to all (John 3:16,17; 2 Corinthians 5:14,15; 1 Timothy 2:6; 4:10; Titus 2:11; 2 Peter 3:9).
    Even those who haven’t heard of Christ are accountable for God’s revelation in nature (Romans 1:20). God will seek those who seek Him (Matthew 7:7; Luke 19:10).
    Therefore God doesn’t send people to hell, they choose it (Romans 1:18,21,25).

    (2) Hell is too severe a punishment for man’s sin.

    Response: God is holy-perfect (1 Peter 1:14,15).

    Sin is willful opposition to God our creator (Romans 1:18-32).
    Our sin does merit hell (Romans 1:32; 2:2,5,6).
    What is unfair and amazing is that Christ died for our sin and freely offers salvation to all (Romans 2:4; 3:22-24; 4:7,8; 5:8,9).
