What We Think Won't Change It
| People have various
attitudes toward hell. Some deny there is such a place just as they deny
there is a heaven. Some contend for the place of reward but deny there is
a place of punishment. Such inconsistency!
Others say they believe there is a hell but never preach about it and try to gloss over the horrors of it. Some dislike the appeal of fear for serving God.
It cannot be denied that the revelation of hell does cause fear. While love is the highest motive for serving God, fear is a lesser motive and a very real one. God uses it. Hebrews 10: 31, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God."
