Who’s going to hell? — 5 Comments

  1. A lot of food for thought here. Forgiveness is important to our own mental health. A pastor once said to say “Thou fool” infers the subject is an unbeliever. I don’t know about that one way or another. But if the speaker is in danger of hellfire, maybe it is a good idea not to think it. We are only in charge of our own faith and destination. And my Dad said we might be surprised when we get to heaven to see who’s there–and who isn’t.

  2. Bravo. Well said. I’ll add that out of the 31 times Jesus spoke of hell, it was nearly always because of unbelief, not personal sin. I was an anti-Christian for 50 years, mostly because Christians misrepresented the gospel to me. I chronicle that misrepresentation and how Christians can present the gospel the way Jesus and the Apostles did in Sowing in Hard Ground. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09FQB59ZK/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i2

    • Thanks, Randy. And as long as you’re adding to what I wrote, I might as well add that it’s the unbelief of people who should have known better. A lot of Christians point fingers at others who don’t “follow the rules.” And the whole point of the Gospel is that no one can follow the rules, as defined by Moses.

  3. and no one can be saved by their works. Salvation and God’s work of redemption is all done by God through Jesus and the Spirit who express His gracious love and wisdom and transforming power to those whom He calls into His family and into His service. Faith is the experience of trusting God through His Spirit in one’s daily personal choices in response to God’s personal call to totally sacrifice self and to live to glorify God, and the Kingdom of God is not a democracy.
