How can a loving God send people to hell?
Have you ever wondered how a loving God could create a place like hell for souls? Love thinks no evil, so where why did God create Hell?
And does he really send people to hell?
For years, I grew up living in the fear of Hell over my love for God. In my little understanding, Heaven was the opposite of Hell, so choosing the former was only natural.
I didn’t want to go to hell, so making heaven was the next best option.
But that was years ago. Men are gradually evolving to a place where Hell feels like a myth and Lucifer is being seen in a positive light
As Christians, we need to ensure whatever gospel we are preaching is strong enough to let people know the other side of the story and keep them in God’s will.
God’s love gives people a chance and a choice
Hell is a choice we make.
Because God is Love, Love will not hold people down against their will.
No matter how much God loves a man, he will NEVER impose himself on that man.
Such a man still has a choice to choose God or Satan, and a man choosing himself indirectly worships Satan.
Because self serves satan, there’s no sitting on the fence here.
You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.1Corinthians 12:2
Cain wanted no part in God and was unrepentant about killing his brother when God asked him about Abel.
The Israelites (God’s own special people) had a choice to be content with the wilderness life or grumble and insult God to his face.
They chose the latter and this resulted in some of them dying.
Scriptures worth reading: Deuteronomy 1:26-38, Psalm 95:6-11, Hebrews 3:7-19
Some people don’t love God and will never love God, no matter how much you preach to them.
Some men would turn away from the faith because they don’t want God anymore. -1Timothy 4:1, Matthew 24:10
So why would God force these same people into his dwelling place?
That would be ‘illegal’ and unloving to force people to love you and spend time with you.
It’s like the law of gravity. It’s a good and effective law responsible for man’s balance.
But those who misuse its law face the consequences (death)
God is just. We have to choose him by desiring him above everything we’ve ever wanted.
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.Matthew 16:24
Heaven is where God is present
We need to focus on our loving God not heaven, because God should be our heaven and our goal!
Hell is a terrible place to be because God is absent and people there are forgotten by God.
The dead live there.
Earth is still bearable to live because the Holy-Spirit lives in Christians.
Besides, God still has hope for more souls to come into him.
Hope thrives on earth.
You don’t want to know how earth will be when the saints are raptured and the Holy-Spirit leaves.
When the Holy-Spirit leaves, men will be at the mercy of darkness.
Nothing good will remain.
Heaven is heaven because of God. So if God the Father decides to make his home on Earth today, automatically Earth becomes heaven.
God is the definition of true goodness, music, beauty, life, warmth, peace, joy and salvation.
He is pleasure and purity personified, glorious and creative.
God is everything Man’s soul was created for.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.Psalm 16:11
Hell is the absence of Joy, Pleasure and God’s Presence.
I understand some of us are still growing and perplexed about the role of Hell in God’s creation.
But God is a good Father and His judgements are good, regardless of how our minds or the world may see it.
Let God be true and every man a liarRomans 3:4
The soul of man cannot fully comprehend God hence we need to keep growing until we see like Jesus sees.
When we do, it becomes easy to serve God lovingly not grudgingly.
When we become like Jesus, we will be able to fully comprehend God’s will without pretence or doubts in our hearts.
Jesus was so eager to please His father and felt the cross was worth it because he saw the joy ahead.-Hebrews 12:2
God is life!
Hell is filled with despair and hopelessness. Hell is like a junkyard where they forget people.
It’s depressing. It was made for Satan and his cohorts. The presence of Satan is the presence of death, sin and darkness.
Don’t be deceived by theories that contradict God’s word. Seasons will come and go, but God’s word will abide forever.
Like it always has.
Love wants the best for you
God showed his love by sending His Son. The sin of man was so great and self destructive it could only be cured by one man only.
And the only way we can receive God’s abundant love and salvation is by following Jesus daily.
And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey HimHebrews 5:9
So we must be willing to obey God to enjoy his salvation.
Sin is a soul disease that keeps killing men and robbing them of eternal glory.
Jesus is the vaccine to that sickness. Not yourself or any good deeds you can think of.
You can read more about the fall of man here and God’s attempt to restore and renew us.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of GodRomans 3:23
Jesus is the only way to God and our being conformed into Christ’s image is our DESTINYBuildtoBloom
Jesus is the only way, and he established a pattern of life for the people who want to love God.
God isn’t going to let down his standard for anyone but he keeps chasing after us until we come into the fullness of his Son.
You have a choice. I pray you choose wisely.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.Romans 10:9
Bloom with love. Xx!
