Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) A recent cover of Time magazine asked the question, 'Is Hell Dead?' This is remi- niscent of Time's famous cover many years ago, 'Is God Dead?' Within the context of 'Christianity,' there are three varying views of hell. The first one is that hell is on this earth. It is the pain and suf- fering we face in this life; there is no hell in the afterlife. Second, there is a hell, but it is only for the really bad people: Judas, Hitler, and Osama bin Laden, etc. The third view is that hell is real and will be populated by all those who reject the salvation which is in Christ Jesus. This last view is considered to be too extreme for our modem world. Yet, this is what the Bible teaches, and though it is unpopular, it is the truth. The first view is based on the idea that God is primarily a God of love and He would not send anyone to hell. The second view follows this same emphasis, but argues that while there is a hell, God's love would never send any sincere person there. An individual, be he Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, etc., if he lives a good life, he will make it to heaven. Though he does not believe in Jesus, God would be unfair to send him to a burning hell if he is a good, sincere person. Surveys indicate that most Americans accept this second view. We have been condi- tioned that to believe other- wise is cold, unfeeling, and extreme. I first encountered this sec- ond view as a young pastor while in a doctor's office. I was under the care of an oph- thalmologist, who had me in the chair, under the lights, and I wasn't going anywhere. He asked, "What do you do for a living? .... I am a preach- er," I replied. "You are not one of those fire and brim- stone preachers, are you?" He was likely speaking about my style of preaching rather than its content, but still, the question disturbed me. Our problem is that we tend to look at it from our own vantage point. We don't want to go to hell, or believe in hell. It is repulsive and we would rather not think or talk about it. It is difficult to see it from God's perspective. He is loving, yes, but He is also holy and righteous. There has to be a judgment, other- wise the entire universe is nothing but meaningless chaos. He would be unrigh- teous to let everyone get away with their sin. That place of punishment, hell, the lake of fire, was prepared for the devil and his demons (Matthew 25:41). God is not willing that any should per- ish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). He has made the way of escape, at the cost of the life's blood of His own Son. Would Jesus have died on the cross if there were no hell? Indeed, since Jesus is God incarnate, all-seeing, all-knowing, and all-loving, He knows all too well the reality of Hell. He came to Earth to pay the pen- alty for our sins and to rescue all of those who will repent and believe. 00nnual Fish Fun Days Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesotans have a unique opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy a variety of aquatic habitats.
