"Why would a loving God send people to Hell?"
I've heard that question ask countless of times, to the point that I've lost count. That question can be hard to answer if you don't know the right answer. Oftentimes you will answer something along the line as, "God doesn't send people to Hell, we're sending ourselves to Hell." But that answer tends to lose people because they don't want to hear it. It's hard truth but the moment you start explaining that it is the truth that it's our sinful way of living that leads us to Hell, they stop listening and they don't want to hear you, or perhaps they'll follow up your answer with something like, "Well, I believe God is all loving, and I believe that everyone will go to Heaven, because why would a loving God send people to Hell if He wasn't loving." But they are only half right. God is all loving, yes. A matter of fact, God is so loving, that He does not want to force you into Heaven. He doesn't want to force His love on you. A matter of fact, God wants you to come to Him of your freewill. That is what a loving God does. So yes if we don't come to God of our own free will, and we keep on living in sin because we are blinded from the Truth. Then it is of our doing why we go to Hell. It's because we've denied God. It's because we've denied His love. That's the reason why good people go to Hell. To put it in simpler term, why would you allow someone into your house who denies you, who rejects you, who disrespects you, hates you, and why would you force them into your house if they did not want to come of their freewill? What kind of a loving God is that? I don't know about you, but the loving God that I believe, thought of us worthy enough to be given the gift of freewill, so that He doesn't have to force Himself upon us, but instead for us to come to Him freely on our own. If you ask me, that sounds more like a loving God. Because I'm hearing God saying, "Come to My house." But thanks to freewill, it's our choice to accept His invite or reject it. Oh and uh, God isn't forcing Hell on us either, we're heading that way on our own, but God made a way so that the good people don't have to go to Hell. There's a reason why He had His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. The truth is simple, believe in Jesus and there will be no Hell in your future. Because God loves you that much, He gave you the ability to choose for yourself, no one is forcing you.
The reason why people don't want to believe in Christ, isn't due to lack of evidence. I mean the evidence is all around. You can breakdown the Bible and you'll find no flaw. Go to Israel and check out the archaeological sites, you'll see more evidence. The reason why they don't want to believe, isn't because of lack of evidence. They don't want to believe, because they want to do there own thing. They want the freedom to do whatever they want without any consequences. They want to steal, they want to fornicate, lie, cheat get drunk and do all kinds of sexual immorality. They want to do that which makes the flesh feel good. They don't want to follow Christ, because he tells us not to do those things and to guard our soul. Jesus says, those things are wrong and that it will corrupt our soul. But they don't want to hear any of that. Because they're already following another religion, called Self-love. That religion of self teaches you that if it feels good, do it. It encourages you to follow your heart, instead of following Christ. The Bible warns us about how deceitful our hearts really are. But nothing good can come from self-love. I'm not talking the self-love that's about hygiene care, that should come naturally, such as taking care of our body by washing or brushing your teeth. I'm talking about self-love that is built on lies, that doesn't pleases God but pleases the flesh. It's this earthly pleasure that they do not want to give up. And so they mock us, and they throw it in our face as a means of bragging. Basically they're telling us, "Look at what we can do, but you can't." But whatever they do to us, we must remember to turn the other cheek. Love your enemies and pray for them. Stop telling these people who are lost, that God hates them and that they are going to hell. That will only push them that much further away. And that will give them that much more excuse to mock us. We should be welcoming like Christ. The Bible says we should call out sin, but we should do so in a loving way. You'll be surprised how many Christians I see on Tiktok preaching on the street, who are being aggressive, showing hate and not being Godly, definitely not acting like Jesus. We want the world to see Christ in us, that is what it means to be a Christian. Don't be hateful, don't be quick to condemn, don't be judging, and stop acting as if you are above everybody, because that is pride. As Christians, we are not to be prideful, but humble. I have seen so many Christians who act as if they are perfect and above everybody, but I know for a fact I am not perfect, that is why Christ is my savior. We need to remind this world that is lost to this religion of self who God really is, and God is love. So stop telling thim where they're going if they don't repent, this world is already dark, they don't want to hear more darkness. What they want to hear is that they are loved and who loves them. We are to be salt and light. So if you're going to preach on the street, don't preach damnation, but preach that Jesus loves. Don't be aggressive, show humility and peace, be humble as you show love. We are to be planting seeds and the best way to plant seeds, is by showing the love of Christ. It's videos like that that I've seen on tiktok that shows people showing what the love of Christ is, that seems to be changing people more. So we need to get on the right track Church and stop pushing people away. Yes the world will still hate us for Christ's namesake, but by showing humility, peace, humbling ourselves and Christ's love, we have a better chance on saving more souls. I have heard countless testimonies from exgays and former atheists, who says the ones who have led them to Christ had the kindest, most humble heart. We can easily bring more souls to Christ without conforming with the world, we just have to be more humble and show more humility.
