Teaching About Hell

Over the past few years, I have been amazed at the number of nonchristians who say they believe in hell, and some have even said they want to go there because it fits their lifestyle. At the same time, some Bible students and teachers have said they do not believe in hell. Some argue that God is too good and loving to send anyone to hell. The question of hell may or may not come up in your Sunday school lesson this week. If someone does not believe what the Bible (and Jesus) teaches about hell, you might ask them what they think God should do with those who have stubbornly refused to obey God and prefer to rebel against God (without God violating the choices they have made). You might ask them how those who hate God would feel if God made them go to heaven, and what heaven would be like with millions of people being there who hate God and Christians. There are many good reasons for believing what the Bible teaches and what Jesus said.

For the love of God's Word,

  • I believe most people think God is so good that there is no hell,needs to be taught and preached more
  • Bible teachers and preachers have a responsibility to teach and preach what the Bible says to the best of their studied and prayerful ability as the Holy Spirit helps them. God especially holds teachers and preachers who claim to be Christians accountable for what they say and do.
