Do the Fires of Hell Come From God? (Part I)

Christianity is all about salvation in Christ Jesus, but it is also about judgment and accountability for wrongdoing. All Christians believe that Jesus clearly addressed both the salvation and judgment, but we are widely divided on what he meant by his words. Did Jesus teach that all who do not accept him are doomed to eternity in the ravaging and torturous fires of an ever burning hell or did Jesus teach that the ultimate consequence for those who do not either now or later accept him is eternal death?

Are Most People Really “Hellbound?” (Part I)

Christianity is a faith that claims to see the mind of God through His written Word. It claims to represent a God of love and compassion, yet a God of justice and consequence as well. All Christians are unified in the belief that the true followers of Christ will be rewarded with immortal life in heaven, yet Christianity is amazingly fractured in its belief about what happens to everyone else – which constitutes the vast majority of all humankind. Do unbelievers suffer in merciless agony for all of eternity in the fires of hell? Do unbelievers experience the fires of hell as a purifying fire that brings them to Christ? Do unbelievers simply experience utter destruction and cease to exist upon final proof of incorrigibility? Stay with us as we seek biblical truth on the matter!

Such an end, whether by coronal mass ejection, planets colliding or magnetic pole reversals of the earth, would be a horror as only seen in sci-fi movies. Some believe, some doubt, some fear and some laugh. Should we be taking this seriously? Doesn’t the Bible prophesy the end of the world? Were the Mayans right?
