We started a new study on Wednesday nights and we're going to discuss one of its topics today. The class is focusing on evangelism and the responsibility that we all have to share the gospel. It is designed to equip us to do it better and prayerfully more effectively.
But the main thrust of the class, the topic that designed to motivate us as believers to be about our father’s business in the reality of hell. It’s a topic that no one really likes to think about and much less hear preached about.
We like to hear about the promises of God, the goodness of God, the mercy of God, the blessings of God. Nobody like to think about what really happens when we die, but it is a reality that we all know, but sometimes put in the back of our minds.
Even though we know it’s true, we hate to think about it because it is so horrific. Theologian R.C. Sproul was asked what doctrine he struggled with the most and he said “HELL”.
It’s a doctrine that I’m sure we all struggle with, but it’s something Jesus talked a lot about.
