The false teaching that Hell does not exist…

31 Dec


Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

It is very important to know in this day and age just what exactly the Word of God says on the very important matters as it relates to the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. I recently heard the Reverend Carlton Pearson speak on the subject of Hell during an interview in which He stated that the doctrine of Hell is a “fairy tale,” saying that it was a subject that is taught in many Churches to persuade people to turn from their wicked ways and unto repentance to God. The Reverend went onto say that all souls whether saved or unsaved will return back unto the Father from where they came. This teaching comes about by many Pastors and Ministers having a hard time believing that God who is suppose to be a God of love, could not send anyone to a customized torture chamber for all of eternity.

This defies the very teaching of the Holy Bible which was written by the Lord’s Holy Spirit through man, 2 Peter 1:20-21 states, “Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit,” and if God’s Holy Spirit inspired the scripture how can the Lord be made a liar? Titus 1:2, reads “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.” Unfortunately we live in and fallen World where many rebel against the very God who created them, due to the sin nature that all men operate in.

The Lord is a God of love but also of judgment, if God says that there is only one way to Him, then He cannot lie and that one way is a true statement. John 3:16, says that we need Jesus Christ and without Him we are lost and must face an eternity of separation from God due to our unrepentant sin. The only “fairy tale,” spoken of about Hell is that it is not a customized torture chamber where Satan and His Fallen Angels and Demons torment people but is in fact an eternal damnation for the unsaved along with Satan and His minions. Jesus stated in Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” Hell is for the Devil, it was never meant for any man or woman to join Satan in eternal Hell but those in fact have thrown in their lot with the Father of Lies to defy the will of God.

It was never the intention of God to condemn man to this fate but rather we chose it indirectly by not obeying His Word and not accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sin. In some ways Reverend Pearson is right, the “Lake of Fire” the final Hell, does not exist at this time but will after the White Throne Judgment of God, which Satan and His followers will be cast into for all eternity for torment. I never like to Preach Hell, but instead the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a way of causing others to accept the Lord, but it is important for all to know the scripture and the truth about false doctrine. Shalom…
