The uncomfortable talk

Most North Americans believe they go to heaven. This is not what the Bible teaches.

Matthew 7:13-14

Hell is something we should consider and talk about so we can take care of our sins. Right now.

We cannot take a ‘wait and see’ approach to our sins.

2 Corinthians 6:1-2. NOW is the day of salvation.
James 4:14
As we grow older the days grow shorter and shorter. We need to think about hell and things that may take us there

What is hell?
Matthew 13:40-42, 49-50
Luke 16:23-26

Mark 9:43-49

How can there be a hell?
Habakkuk 1:13

Hell is the absence of God.
Thinking of hell helps us understand our sins hurt people around us and God. It gives us perspective and gratitude for what Jesus did for us.

Hell is cancer for Christians. They cannot ignore talking about it.

Go to hell!
If we understood that phrase we would never say this phrase. It’s easy to go to hell – just be your natural self.

John 3:16
Matthew 11:28-30
People sometime say Christianity is hard. Life is hard. It’s a good news. Hell is not.
