Do Heaven and Hell Really Exist?
“The path that leads to life is very narrow and few pass the gate that leads into heaven”
There has always been a raging debate amongst Christians and non-Christians as to wether hell exists. But these days even believers are being tested to the limits and find it hard to believe in the notion of heaven – let alone hell. Why do we need God anyway with modern technology making it plainly obvious that the Bible is a myth? – Or is it?… God makes elaborate blue prints for even those who are going to choose not to use them.
God would never allow such suffering as hell?
Jesus spoke more of Hell than anyone else in The Bible. So the question becomes; what exactly was he describing when he spoke those words. Most people who don’t believe in hell do so because they cannot believe God would torment people in such a way. I’m afraid this argument falls down before the question was asked since in a great mystery God already allows innocent creatures, children and adults to suffer in incomprehensible ways on earth – apparently for the greater good and the fulfilment of his plans.
Therefore, let’s not be complacent and rule out fire and torment for those that are truly evil and hate God, since if God allows it to happen to creatures that are not guilty here on earth, would it be unjust not to exact some kind of justice either now or later – at least ‘eye for an eye’ on those who cause this suffering to innocents and know better.
No, if we are going to rue out torment and brimstone it must be for another Biblical reason – not that; “God would never allow such suffering.” Always go to the scripture and ask the Holy Spirit to give you answers, and do not be afraid of physical pain but always look for truth and justice when considering these things.
Are some elected to go to Hell?
The suggestion that there are those who are elected by God to go to hell is a travesty on the nature of God. Some verses sound this way on a superficial reading but only when taken in isolation. To get to the truth on any subject – it must be looked at as a whole. The Bible states over and over – Christ died for all men and that whosoever will, may find his salvation!
God it seems understands the full nature of evil and its consequences – to the point of him seeing it worthy of endurance by humans destined for an infinitely more beautiful after life.
Young people. We must always remember in our freedom it was bought at great price. We may never have to witness our friend being killed, although it is possible if things were to suddenly change. Enjoy your freedom in the knowledge of how it came about. Check out these interesting articles and websites on the existence of heaven and hell.
