Why is there so much suffering in the world? Is God to blame? Does he send people to hell?
Let’s see what God’s manual, the Bible says. Jesus is speaking, “The thief (the devil) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.
That says to me that the devil is bad, and God is good.
The Jesus I know wouldn’t send people to Hell!
I’m Wilma and someone commented to me, “The Jesus I know wouldn’t send people to Hell”.
My reply was: “The Jesus I know, loves you and me so much that He died a brutal death on the cross, taking the punishment for all the wrong we have done, so we would not go to hell”.
It is not God’s will for mankind to go to hell.
We are told in the Bible that the eternal fire (hell) has been prepared for the devil and his angels.
We are given a free will, a choice where we spend eternity. Heaven or hell!
Again, let me share a wonderful truth from the Bible app. This is Jesus’ words, “For God so loved the world”. I’m going to personalise the rest of the verse. “For God so loved (add your name) that He gave His one and only Son, that if you believed in Jesus, you would not perish (in hell) but have eternal life”. (John 3:16)
An ex-drug trafficker shared his journey the day after he was released from prison.
In the conversation, it was obvious that he believed in heaven and hell. So, I asked, “If you died tonight would you go to Heaven?” His answer was an emphatic, “Yes”.
“On what basis?” Bill, my husband enquired. He assured him that he had not murdered anyone, and he was basically a good person.
I got out my phone as I love to do and asked him to read Ephesians 2:8-9. He read, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it”.
After reading God’s truth, his eyes were opened. He responded, “Oh, so what do I do now?”
The ex-prisoner received God’s gift of salvation and became a child of God there and then.
What an amazing change occurred in this man; he could not thank us enough every time we saw him.
Would you like to be sure that you will go to Heaven when you die?
