A series on Hell....

It seems that there is much confusion today among believers and non-believers alike as to the true nature of Hell.  In the next series of posts I will use scripture to establish, that, Hell is, and what it is.  Why is this important?  First and foremost, I believe that it is due to a misunderstanding of what Hell is that leads so many believers into apathy.  If you really understood how terrible that place is, and truly believed that it was real, you'd feel a much greater burden to tell people that they are in sin and going there, and that they must believe on Jesus Christ to be saved from it.  Hell is very real, and it is very dreadful, when I think about it, I can only but thank God for His gift to us, so that we don't have to go there.  It is very interesting that the Church has made a shift to preaching on getting saved so that you can go to heaven.  That is not why Christ died, He died to pay for our sin, so, if we believe on Him, we don't have to pay the just penalty for our sins, in Hell.  Hell is where all non-believers go, and if Jesus had not paid the penalty for our sins, we'd be there too.  Jesus did not die so we could go to heaven, he died out of mercy to give us a way to not go to hell. Next post up, I'll prove that hell is real, and that it is a real place of torment.  After that I'll try to illistrate in a post what would be like to be in Hell.  Remember folks, eternity is a long time, a very long time, please don't forget that...

May the Lord Bless you as you study His word, and serve Him from day to day,

The Printing

I just wanted to tell y'all about my favorite movie...  It is the first movie since I don't know when that I could just watch over and over, it is one of those movies that challenges me to live for the Lord, and to fully surrender to Him.  If you haven't seen it, you need to, it is the best.  It is the true story of Russian believers printing Bibles, telling of their courage and triumphs.  Forget what the DVD producer said, that is not true, in my own research, the story is true, with just a few changes and composites to protect the people involved, (this was made while the events were taking place,).  So there, that is my favorite movie, it bumped my long term favorite to second place, Pamela's Prayer, (still a very good movie, The Printing just edges it out for me in this time of my life).

That is all for now folks,

God Bless,
