The Truth About Hell
Christians like to talk about how great it will be to go to Heaven. After all, it would be a gross understatement to say that eternal life in a beautiful place, void of sin, tears, pain, or suffering, is desirable to the believer and unbeliever alike. It is pleasant to think of a blissful existence after this life. It is a selling point for many of our faith to hold Heaven up in game show fashion saying, “and tell them, pastor, what they could win!”
However, when it comes to the teaching of judgment for the sinner and Hell for the damned, we grow a little more nervous and a little quieter. If we even mention Hell, we feel like we are putting God’s love and goodness on trial.
In this study, you and your group will explore the biblical teaching of the afterlife for those who are in rebellion against God. Your group will see that because of God’s “goodness,” He must judge sin. However, through His “love,” He provides an escape for those who receive it.
