Hell is a Real Place posted by John Sorensen on May 09, 2018
I was recently at a college football game waiting to get in. Some Christians came marching by with signs and shouting, “You’re going to Hell! Turn or burn!”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. As Christians, we know that the Bible teaches that Hell is, in fact, a real place — a horrible place of “utter darkness and weeping.” So, what they were saying is in effect true, but you know it’s certainly not winsome. When we share with people about eternal life, we ought to do so from an extreme position of love and compassion, as is demonstrated by God toward us in Scripture. This week we’ve been talking about the after life. And Hell is part of what the Bible teaches us. But it matters how we talk about it. Let me encourage you to take some time to think about eternal life today. And then ask God to fill you with a deep compassion for the lost people around you who are only a heartbeat away from eternity – with or without God.
