Hell to pay


Matthew 18:6-9 / Mark 9:42-50 / Luke 17:1-2…

God is very concerned about the protection of His children. People will intentionally set traps and woe to those people, whether they are false teachers, false converts, or simply malicious non-believers. Indeed, it will happen, but God will levy heavy punishment on the perpetrators. To purposefully cause a child of God to stumble is exacting worse than a death sentence, it is to submit to an eternal sentence.

You see, annihilationism, the idea that an unsaved person who dies is simply extinguished, may sound less “cruel” to people, but it is not at all what the Bible teaches. In fact, it is the very opposite. Jesus was saying here that it would be better that we should be annihilated than suffer the fate that awaits us if we harm one of God’s children.

Also, we want to be careful not to let our own desires drag us down into perdition. Sin is serious business. Apostates and “make-believers” are in more danger than they may realize. If your destination is heaven, your destiny is holiness (1 Thessalonians 4:7-8). How can we say we have our eyes on heaven when we live like hell?

Don’t get between God and His children. Don’t let anything get between God and you. There is a hell, and it is eternal, and without any rest (Daniel 12:1-2 / Matthew 25:46 / 2 Thessalonians 1:9 / Revelation 14:9-11, 20:10-15). Believe me, and believe the Bible, you don’t want to go there. Believe Jesus, and you won’t have to.
