You Are Going To Hell

Since we are heading straight into the Tribulation and the end times, why can't we just tell people straight out that they're going to hell? THEN we can tell them they need Jesus. Your thoughts?

fay:

I've seen a lot of atheist's posts, and while I see a lot of skepticism, I haven't ever noticed any mockery or hatred of God

I have seen some sarcasm aimed at illogical reasoning, which I have also used from time to time, and which many others here use. There is even mockery in the Bible:

Elijah mocking the Prophets of Baal: 1 Kings 18:27:
"... either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked."
(which includes a euphemism for "going to the bathroom").

Paul on Circumcision: Galatians 5:12 (Today's New International Version):
"As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!"

Jerry,

And good morning to you too...

god works in mysterious ways. his mind cannot be known much less understood.
---atheist on 6/24/10


Fay,

I am a true atheist.

You seem to be a very gentle and loving person by nature, and your belief seems to give you comfort and I take it strength in times of trouble. I bet you would be essentially the same good person without your belief. If you feel you need 'god' to help get you through, I see no harm in that.
---atheist on 6/23/10


There are no atheists - only mental spoiled brat children with an axe to grind. How else can one explain the continual presence of an 'atheist' on a Christian web site?
---jerry6593 on 6/24/10


StrongAxe, I've looked up the definition of atheist. What I am saying is that I don't feel in my spirit that this atheist person is a true atheist.

Atheist, I admit that most of the time this walk on this earth doesn't make a lot of sense. But I can tell you something that makes perfect sense, & that is that God loves you so much that if you had been the only person on this earth that he still would have sent his son Jesus to die on that cross just for you. I feel that you have been so hurt by some so called Christians that you think God is mean. I want to say how sorry I am for them. Can you please forgive them? I love you with the love of God.
---fay on 6/23/10




Donna, the idea is not just to tell them but to show them . No man comes to the Son unless the Father sends him, so biblical wisdom and prayer is needed for us to properly be used as conduits for salvation.
---larry on 6/23/10


if one believes in the antichrist once saved always saved then of course they believe everyone who has not foamed at the mouth with the name of Christ on their lips is going to Dante's hell fire

seeing there is NOTHING in scripture that IMPLIES True Christians should tell someone they are condemned and will not receive eternal life than it is EASY to see why there are NO instructions to tell anybody they "need" a Jesus

the times of sorrow aka Hollywood national bookselling tribulation Left Behind series has created a frenzy

and just like EVERY frenzy before this one The Father in Heaven is still in control and still calls those to truth no flesh and blood human is above HIM
---Rhonda on 6/23/10


fay:

You said: An atheist is not truly unbelieving of God, they are actually anti-God.

You are using the word in a different way from how dictionaries (and most atheists themselves) use the word. Please actually look the word up in a dictionary. Atheist comes from the Greek: 'a' = not, 'theos' = god. i.e. someone who does not believe in any god or gods.

Granted, there are those who hate God, but they can't be atheists, for how can you hate something you believe doesn't exists? It's like having a passionate hatred for unicorns or fairies. (Some people share this hatred and erroneously call themselves atheists. Officials in communist countries who persecute religion fall into this category.)
---StrongAxe on 6/23/10


Fay,

If they didn't believe in God they would not continue in discussing God.---Fay.

Look at it this way, we are all in the same bus together trying to get from here to there. For the most part we all agree on where there is but not always. The bus driver, at the insistence of Believers, takes detours, drives circuitous routes, stops for invisible entities crossing the road, and simply won't stop where some Non-Believers want to get off.

Talking about the weird bus ride is the least I can be expected to do. I am paying for it despite the lousy service.
"if there were no God there would be no atheists." Well I am an atheist, so your logic says my existence proves the existence of god?
---atheist on 6/23/10


In the first place my remark, "If there was no God there would be no atheists" was food for thought. In the second place, I stand that if there were no God there would be no atheists. An atheist is not truly unbelieving of God, they are actually anti-God. If they didn't believe in God they would not continue in discussing God. They keep trying to prove there is no God, which does not come from one who actually believes God does not exist. Anti-God comes from one who doesn't like God.
---fay on 6/23/10




Because people don't want to hear the truth. If you have noticed in alot of the churches they avoid saying anything about "hell, tounges, and the Holy Ghost. They want people to come And join their church so they don't speak about these things.
---Rebecca_D on 6/22/10


it is difficult to say this to a person that does not believ in anything, they take this as a joke.
---Andy3996 on 6/22/10


fay:

What I am saying is that, clearly, this line of logic makes no sense when applied to Santa Claus, so exactly the same line of logic makes just as little sense when applied to God or anyone else.

The fact that something or someone does not exist does NOT make it impossible to disbelieve in that thing. In fact, it makes disbelief quite easy, and belief much more difficult.

You said: If there were no God there would be no atheists.

In fact, if God did not exist, there would be two kinds of people in the world: the atheists, and the deluded. (Just as now there are now two kinds of people in the world: those who don't believe in Santa Claus, and those who are deluded by believing in him).
---StrongAxe on 6/22/10


Trav,

Sorry I meant to say "right angle". Please forgive the omission.

I don't do drugs. Sorry, but you can't evade my point by slander, which is that if you see any right angles or angels holding a sword, for that matter, you are having a serious breach with reality,---unless you are dreaming.

It is 2010 and so anyone expecting to see right angles or angels with swords is really messed up. We all know they would be packing flamethrowers, assault rifles, and small tactical nuclear weapons, or mind control disconbobalators...

Is the son of man a god? Is the holy ghost a god? How many gods do you worship? How do you blaspheme one and not the other? I thought you were a monotheist....?!
---atheist on 6/22/10


StrongAxe, I'm not sure what you are trying to say. In the first place my remark was just food for thought, however, there is no Santa Claus & everyone knows there is no Santa Clause. Everyone just pretends.
---fay on 6/21/10


Trav,

If I saw an angle with a sword:
I would first try to remember if somehow I had been fed some heavy duty drugs probably mixed with a great deal of alcohol.
Then I would check myself in for a full medical with psychiatric consults.
---atheist on 6/21/10

Ha.
Well, I had already deduced the kind of parties you attend and what you need to get through them.
Most of here are wondering why you haven't already been to a psychiatric session or three.
But then seeing an "Angle", whatever the heck that is might make me go too.

Luke 12:10
And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

Trav,

If I saw an angle with a sword:

I would first try to remember if somehow I had been fed some heavy duty drugs probably mixed with a great deal of alcohol.

Then I would check myself in for a full medical with psychiatric consults.

And as far as I know, anyone in these modern days, claiming to have seen such a visage, (unless they appear homeless, poor and mentally incompetent---in which case they are generally ignored), would be taken immediately by family, friends, and even their pastor for an immediate medical evaluation.

Now Santa Claus pulled across the sky in a sled with reindeer, that's another story...

fay:

You said: If there were no God there would be no atheists

That makes about as much sense as saying "If there were no Santa Claus, there would be no people who disbelieve in Santa Claus".

Yet we know that there is no Santa Claus, and as such we ARE the very people who don't believe in him!
---StrongAxe on 6/21/10


'atheist': Thanks for the Father's Day sentiment. I hope yours was happy as well. I like the "helldar" comment, it's similar to the genetic ability the Predestinationalists have to discern that they are in the "chosen" group as opposed to the "lost no matter what" group.

Here's a Father's Day sentiment for you straight from God.

Anyone who does not accept Jesus in His finished work as your replacement for God's judgement of your actions against Him is not going to be with Him in eternity.
Hell is a temporary place before being cast into the lake of fire, total absence from God. This applies to all, for ignorance is no excuse. Death is temporary since it is also cast into the lake of fire.
Rev 1:18,20:13-14 I [am] he that liveth, and was dead, and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death...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.

Jerry,

I think some people have a genetic attribute referred to as "Helldar" which senses those who are going to Hell. But it is only possessed by those who know they are not going to hell. Guess you haven't got it. I don't either. See you there...

Oh, I forgot you are one of the few that don't believe in a sadistic god that tortures people for all of eternity in a burning hell. Hell is just being dead. Guess we'll just be dead.

Been there and done that, no biggy.

Happy father's day.

atheist, how can anyone give you an answer outside of Scripture? Everything we believe comes from the Word. We may all have different opinions as to what the Word says but our belief is in God, who sent his Son Jesus to pay for our sins so we could be considered good enough to enter heaven. No man cometh unto the Father but through the Son. In other words no one enters heaven unless they accept that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save the world, repent of their sins & turn away from their wicked ways. Jesus loves you even if you don't love him. I love you even though I don't know you, because I love you with the love of Jesus. Wouldn't you love all your children even if they didn't love you, or believe you? Jesus is...(continued)

Earth is a humanly physical visible sphere residing in a unnumbered mass of celestial spheres consisting of other physical,semi physical and nonphysical spheres that are inhabited and uninhabited commonly known as a universe which this sphere is on it's outer border.
If the earth abideth forever then hell cannot reside here or ever will .The meek shall inherit the earth and no other.
This leaves heaven as the residence of hell which is an unacceptable answer for only the righteous reside there.
From the inside looking out one thinks heaven is out there but in actuality earth is a resident sphere in this vast universe.
If hell is a residence then where?

Obviously, if you tell somebody about Jesus and don't convince them, according to your logic they are sending themselves to hell because they don't believe you. So god will punish them because they don't believe you. Weird.

Now the fact that you made them aware of the opportunity to be saved also places a shadow of blame on yourself.

One other hand if you do not make them aware of Hell, and they choose to reject Jesus without knowlege of the consequences...then are you not to blame for something worse.?
(I know Mima understands this)

That said, however, I think great care must be taken, because many non-believers become DEAF to anything you say after the mention of the word "Hell". To me it is important to explain what "sin" IS and why the consequences are so severe.

The creation and the conscience witness of the Creator. Romans says that no man has an excuse not to believe there is a God. Even if a man does not hear the gospel and believe on Jesus as the Way to God, he is responsible for the witness of the creation and the conscience. God will judge accordingly. Besides, it is not the believer who is responsible for convincing another of the truth. It is the responsibility of the Holy Ghost to convict. It is hardness of heart that rejects the prick of that conviction.

a friend,

I just had a revelation.

You stated that people who never learn of your god and faith, just die and do not suffer eternally in hell. but those who hear of you god and faith will be punished if they do not believe.

If you believe what you say you believe, and you try to teach another of your god and faith and they fail to believe, then you are responsible for them suffering eternal punishment in hell after they die.

When you get to heaven, how are you going to feel when you see all those suffering eternally because you couldn't convince them to believe as you?

Odd, you may be witnessing people straight into hell.

They speak false accusations about others and judge others as if they were God. My sister won't forgive her own father, she outright refused to forgive him for 20 years and he died not knowing I went to get her so she could at least say goodbye to him.

My mother has a root of bitterness so deep that she points out everyone else's sins but never admits she has any of her own. Tell me, do they know Jesus? I say NO. They told me they're going to heaven and are proud of it.

Reba,

The question I gave you is my answer to yours.

Clearly, no one can by any means be certain that they've got the right god, and therefore are not going to burn in hell.

And I cannot believe in any god, who would send anyone to an eternal hell, for chosing the wrong god or none at all.

If I chose a god, and that god was the god of Islam, would you try to talk me out of it? Do you believe that all devote Muslims are going to burn in hell? How about Jews, or Mormons, or Catholics, etc.?

What you ask, is my answer to Pascal Wager. Look it up. The problem is that it's not a flip of a coin but a roulette wheel with an infinite of number choices...

People who believe in god, refer to him in a common way, but have different beliefs about that god. Like Baptists, SDA, Mormons, Protestants, or Christians who don't identify with any particular group but have faith they know god and the right one at that.

In order to do such a thing, people must know what sin is, that they are sinners, and that God must punish sin. Then they must know that Jesus took their punishment, and acceptance of Him would led to Heaven, other wise they will have to take their own punishment in Hell. If you do not do this, you are being harsh and judgemental - which the Bible condemns. In doing this, it shows them why they are going to Hell, and their need for Jesus.

When you open this way, since there's no way out, there is no reason for them to even listen to anything more you have to say. The only thing remaining is to "eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die" (1 Corinthians 15:32).

On the other hand, if you say "You are on the road to hell" or "You risk going to hell" or "You will end up in hell if you continue the way you are going", this implies that there is a way out, a choice, a way to avoid that fate - giving them a reason to listen to the rest of what you have to say.

atheist, have you ever considered the possibility of you being wrong, & what that result would mean for you? Do you ever fear the possibility of waking up in hell & realizing the Christians were right all along & now it's eternally too late for you to change? Do these thoughts ever come through your mind? What exactly in this life is worth taking that kind of gamble on? IF WE'RE RIGHT & YOU'RE WRONG....Do you never wonder?

Im agreeing with alan on this one.Man,in general, has yet to learn from his mistakes.Man slowly has pulled himself away from fear and superstition only to be ensnared by materialism while holding on to the first two .
You may wish to tell people they are going to hell but I am not.Why can you not do it yourself instead of asking for help?

Wrong.

We've been in the end times for the last 2000 years (or so), ever since the Holy Spirit descended at Pentecost.

If the words of St. Peter mean anything, that is. Read Acts 2:16-17.
---Cluny on 6/17/10


alan, though the word does say that Jesus would come back as a thief, it is also refering to those who are not waiting and watching for his return. Look in 1st Thess. 5:4 & 5 it says that we are not in darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief. Also if you read the signs of his return you will aslo see that Jesus said clearly that the genration that sees these thing come to pass would not pass till ALL things be fulfilled.

I do not want anyone going to HELL! HELL it's just awful. Please don't go. Please trust God. God begs no one. But, it is our job to warn of impending danger. You can mooooock if you want to. You will be mocked in HELL. Come on Jesus, save just one lost soul today. Please. And I thank You. I love You. Ahhhh.

Okay,

If I were to believe in hell, then I would believe Donna, that we are all going to hell. That includes you...
---atheist on 6/17/10


Donna your question raises interesting points. Points such as many people do not believe we're headed into the tribulation.
Also many people do not believe there is a hell to go too. On the field witnessing you encounter many of these people. Virtually all of these people are a little bit insulted that you would have the boldness to confront them. Occasionally, very seldom, your confrontation statement that they are going to hell will suddenly bring some to their senses and they will make a decision for Christ.

alan of uk, I absolutely love and adore you and your anointing, but come on, NOTHING HAS CHANGED??????

So I guess all of the earthquakes that have happened since January are considered nothing? How about the flood in Arkansas that just killed people? The Volcano erupting in Iceland stranding thousands of people and one of them was my boss and 50 people from my company.

How about all of the evil being done to children? Kidnappings and killing them? Is this not happening in the UK like it is in the US?
California just had another earthquake the other day. Jesus said when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, and earthquakes, etc., know that the time is near. Jesus is coming back REAL SOON. I believe that.

That's the way to go, as God gives you the words, of course.

I believe that in the "Body of Christ" some of us are on "Meat" Spiritually, and some of us are on "Milk" Spiritually. That being said, we have to realize that some of us are on different Spiritual levels in Christ.

However, we need Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge to explain that if a person don't repent, and stop doing the things that don't line up with the Word of God, then there are consquences, if they don't change.

Be careful how you approach someone in telling them, they are going to "hell" because either you would draw them with the "Word" or "destroy" them with your actions.
---Kimbe7395 on 6/17/10


I still cannot find a period of time called the Great Tribulation, but i find a period of ten days of tribulation in Rev and a period of seven years of buning with fire for seven years in Ezekial.

Anyway, our urgency may not be on God's time table. And, even if it were, do you think that an individual's salvation depends upon us? God will save who He wants, He will use you as He wants. Relax and listen.
---aka.joseph on 6/17/10


"Since we are heading straight into the Tribulation and the end times"

They've been saying things like that for 2000 years.

Nothing has changed.

Jesus said that He would come like a thief in the night ... no-one should try to gusess when it will be
