Hell Is Bad News

Blooming Saguaro

“49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:49-50). Jesus mentions a place of fire many times in scripture, whereas Paul doesn’t mention it at all. Does that mean that the grace teachers don’t believe in Hell? No! Hell is real (many people think it is figurative). Jesus talks a lot about it because He was a law preacher; in fact, the greatest law preacher ever. Again, if you don’t keep the law in its totality, you can’t escape it. And furthermore, no one can escape Hell unless they take the way of escape. Jesus is the way. Hell becomes like the tree of knowledge of good and evil. It’s a choice God gives people with free wills so they can choose for themselves where they want to spend eternity. Hell is bad news. Grace is good news. It’s the goodness of God that leads to repentance. Knowing how good God is makes the choice easy. Choose life. Choose Jesus.
