No Joking Matter posted by John Sorensen on Jan 27, 2017
You know, for some people, Hell is just a big joke – something they make light of.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Author Mark Twain is known to have said, jokingly, “Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.” C.S. Lewis, on the other hand, took a more somber tone when he wrote, “The safest road to Hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” For those of us who know Christ, Hell is no joking matter. It is a real place where real people will spend eternity. In some cases, people that you and I know. And while some of them may make light of it, joking that they may want to go there because that’s where all their friends will be, we need to warn them that Hell will not be a party for anyone including Satan himself. Instead, let’s give them Jesus and the wonderful news that Heaven is an absolutely free gift. Need help in sharing the Gospel? We’d be glad to help. Visit ShareLife.today for free tips and resources.
