|For Those Who Think Hell Is A Hideous Doctrine by OLAADEGBU(m): 12:12am On May 08, 2019|
I read recently where someone said that Hell is a "hideous" doctrine and that if God was love He would never create such a place. Then let's follow that logic and as loving human beings do away with prisons because they are hideous places.
However, that would be a hard sell with those who have had daughters who have been raped and murdered, or with those who have been embezzled of their life's savings. Such people call for justice, not love.
A judge may be a loving person, but he (or she) sits in court not to exhibit love but to see that justice is done. That's why depictions of justice often show statues as being blindfolded.
For a Christian to say that there is no such place as Hell is to be a Judas to the cause of Christ. It is to pat the blind man on the back as he taps his way towards a thousand-foot cliff.
It is love that drives us to warn every blind sinner that if they refuse to turn around in repentance, they will fall into the hands of the Living God, and the Bible says that is a "fearful thing."

A god that sits back and watches women getting raped and murdered and does nothing in the first place to try to save then despite claiming to be all powerful, despite having foreknowledge of the rape and even claiming that everything is it's will is an accomplice to such an atrocity in the first place.
Such an entity cannot even comprehend the meaning of justice in the first place.

The atheists' logic is skewed as usual. What has the foreknowledge of God got to do with whether a person commits crime or not?
You should know that if you have been created as a free moral agent you are responsible for your actions. You will have no excuse when you face God on the Judgment Day if you choose not to repent and have faith in Christ as your Personal Saviour and Lord.
