    Why Will God Send People to Hell?

    One day three kids asked their mom if they could play outside. The mother said ok but told them that they won't be able to enter the house if they have mud on them. So the three kids happily went outside and play.

    During their time outside, one kid spent the whole time playing in the mud without a care to the mother's warning. One also found it kind of fun so he just played with only with his hands and thought to himself that he would wash after playing. The last kid wondered as well how it would feel like to play with mud so he just played and trampled on it with his slippers, telling himself that its only a little mud and it was very easy to wash off. They were so enamored with playing that they forgot the time and when they remembered they were in a hurry to go back. So much so that they forgot to wash!

    Their mom was waiting for them at the front door and were ready to examine them. Who do you think was allowed to go inside the house? Of course none for all of them have mud that they will bring inside the house.


    People have this notion that since they never did a serious sin like stealing or murder that they can get by and probably go to heaven since they did well. But the Bible says... "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Just as the kids fell short of the expectation of the mother so did we fall short of the glory of God.

    People are not sent to hell by God because of crimes they commit or some nasty thing or the lifestyle they live! People are sent to hell because of their sins. It is as simple as that.

    Most say for example that homosexuals are not going to heaven because of this sinful lifestyle as told in the Bible. But homosexuality, rape, murder or being a thief isn't anymore serious than the other sins in our lives like the simple act of 'lying' for example.

    "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." (Revelations 21:8)


    But who can stop lying? Then no one will be saved? What does Jesus say?

    "Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'" (Matthew 19:26)


    This is because people will be saved not because of them but because of God's mercy and His Son Jesus Christ.

    "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

    If you admit you have mud on your soles then admit it to Jesus directly and He accept you and cleanse you.

    "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

    Wow, it's almost as if easter is completely oblivious of the discussions on god and hell in the other threads.

    God is still an asshole.

    God is an insane murderous egomaniac.

    well, what do we got here?

    i always believed that both fundamentalism and atheism are just stages of immaturity.

    boys, or girls maybe, i am sure that later on you will also grow up as responsible, realistic persons.

    like we normals who just laugh at your cheap shots.

    And we all know that belief in god is an unhealthy, irrational delusion.

    Could you please expound? free will is our freedom to choose. pre-destination when it comes to spirituality is only one, we are destined for an eternal bliss, if we go the opposite, then that is our choice, we chose eternal damnation and not what God has offered- eternal bliss.

    I am personally sending you to hell. With my religion. Trogdorism. My doctrine says all nubcakes go to hell: a lake of corrosive mansauce. It specifically says you, easter are destined to go there. Just cause Trogdor feels like it.

    Have a nice day

    ^"As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!" (Galatians 1:9)

    ^ But I accept loc0's gospel. And since you are preaching something other than what I accepted, then YOU are eternally condemned.

    (and that's according to your Bible )

    "If easter says another word, burninate him!" (Strong Bad 2:34)

    I can quote stuff too you know.

    Plus this:

    "All ye who oppose shall bathe in a fountain of glorious light and eternally flowing liquor" (Homsar 2:8) But obviously the proper interpretation of this is that easter is still going to hell to be burninated and to be constantly hit in the head with a rubber mallet.

    People might be sincere in their beliefs but they may not be correct. You can be sincere and be sincerely wrong.
