Let’s talk about hell

Current Series / August 14, 2007

Let’s be honest.  We don’t like to talk about someone going to hell. It sounds incredibly judgmental and overly pious. After all, who want’s to be that religious fanatic that stands on the street corner with a bull-horn only to be mocked? The subject has incredible potential for damaging and destroying relationships. So, we avoid it like the plague.

But what do you do if someone you know is on the road to hell and is living an empty life without Jesus? Do you ignore it and hope they figure it out? Do you simply pray for them and trust God to fix the situation? Or do you care enough to lovingly approach the subject?

Here’s the deal. Jesus gives more than just Fire Insurance from hell to his followers. Jesus brings life…beginning now. So, what are the obstacles that prevent you from telling someone about real life in Jesus?

Statistics tell us that most Christians will die before they ever introduce ONE PERSON to Christ. Will you be among those who never fulfilled the commission of Christ or will you begin to experience the Awakening and live the life God called you to live?

Hi Dave,

I just read your little talk about Hell and wondered if you were familiar with http://www.wayofthemaster.com If not, go there and check out the audio recording of Hell’s Best Kept Secret.

Hey dave, read this and liked it, had a few questions comments tho.
first of which is how can we honestly reason ourselves to believe that someone who dies, before they have the chance to live (i.e. teenagers, children) go to hell? (i know children who are too young to understand, God gives grace) but how does one justify that God will send people to hell before they truly have a chance to become a Godly person. I dont know, Just something I have been struggling with lately. Also, maybe this is just in my own experience, but when someone is greiveing the loss of a friend, why do Christians find it necessary to first ask “were they a Christian” to you? While i am totally and completely aware of the necessity of this question, I dont really know if during the grieveing time it is an appropriate question, especially if they answer is no or maybe. I might just be rambling on here, but I figured I would just ask to get some feedback. Thanks!
