We’re taking a look at some well-known thoughts that we tend to
“God is good, and God is love, therefore He
wouldn’t send anyone to hell.”
God doesn’t desire to send anyone to hell. That’s why He sent
Himself—in the human form of His Son, Christ, to die for our sins so
we wouldn’t have to spend eternity in hell.
Someone has to pay for your sins—either you or Christ.
God loves you so much, He offered to pay the death penalty for you
through Christ. But He won’t force you to accept His gift.
True love has boundaries.
A married couple can expect each to be faithful to sacred vows and
not commit adultery. True love is angry enough about evil actions and
reacts. Loving moms and dads protect their children from sexual
God’s love is true love. Therefore, His love also has boundaries.
He’s angry about evil that hurts His disciples.
And He does something about it.
He gives everyone a choice.
He has promised that all who seek Him will find Him:
“You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in
(Jeremiah 29:13 LB).
He DESIRES that we all choose Him! In fact, He begs us to choose
Him. Check this out:
“Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children
might live! Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey him
and to cling to him. . . .” (Deuteronomy 30:20 LB).
He wants every person in the entire world to choose Him.
And, yes, He does make Himself known to everyone.
Need proof of this? Check out Romans 1:20 and Romans 2:12-16.
To NOT choose Christ is to choose hell.
And God will send those who reject Him to hell.
Is this fair?
We can be sure that God is absolutely fair and just. See Isaiah
