Heaven and Hell

Why some people can't get off the subject and get on with living

Authored by Tom Spence

Is it heaven or is it hell?

Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:9-11

Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:3

That sounds like one day everyone, everywhere, will by the power of the Holy Spirit not by some brute force, joyfully confess Jesus is Lord! Love really does win!

Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:14-15

Great! That sounds like some will burn.

God desires none to perish but the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars-they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

Does God not get what he wants?

Some say that they can't believe in God if he sends people to hell. Others say they can't believe in him if he doesn't.

What do I do?
