Hell: The Disconcerting Doctrine
God's wrath...
"...the wrath of God remains on him."
John 3:36
The New Normal
"And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful."
Romans 1:28-31
On account of one sin?
"...the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night...."
Revelation 14:11
A Response
We're the offenders, not the offended.
Drinker of the Cup
"For thus the LORD, the God of Israel, says to me, 'Take this cup of the wine of wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I send you to drink it. They will drink and stagger and go mad because of the sword that I will send among them.'"
Jeremiah 25:15-16
"inaugurated eschatology"
"This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."
John 17:3
“We can ignore…pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
C.S. Lewis
"...into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Matthew 13:42
"These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
Matthew 25:46
"If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the fiery hell."
Matthew 18:8-9
Relationship matters...
Being matters...
“...the intimacy between God and even the meanest creature is closer than any that creatures can attain with one another. Our life is, at every moment, supplied by Him: our tiny, miraculous power…only operates on bodies which His continual energy keeps in existence—our very power to think is His power communicated to us.”
C.S. Lewis
"And He was saying, "Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will."
Mark 14:36
"He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, 'My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.'"
Matthew 26:42
"They came to a place named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, 'Sit here until I have prayed.' And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be very distressed and troubled. And He said to them, 'My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.'
Mark 14:32-34
“the confused, restless, half-distracted state, which is produced by physical derangement, or by mental distress, as grief, shame, disappointment.”
J.B. Lightfoot
"Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified."
Hebrews 10:11-14
