100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #56 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE — Revelation 20:11-15: “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Today, I want to address a very serious question that many people have. That question is: will a loving God send people to a burning Hell? Many people have raised this question down through the years because, to some, the idea of God sending people to Hell is inconsistent with His character. They cannot imagine the loving, gracious Creator allowing any of His creation to end up in such a horrible place.
Well, allow me to share with you three points that show that even though people go to Hell, God does not send them there.
1. First of all, God is indeed all loving, but He is also all righteous, all holy, and all just.
2. Secondly, we must realize that God never intended for people to go to Hell in the first place.
3. The only reason why people end up in Hell is because of their choices.
