How dare you!
I’ve had atheists mad at me, furious, that I would dare talk about hell. How dare you! One called it “tragic” that anyone would tell people hell exists, that there’s nothing loving about talking about hell.
But I must! Since I believe in the Bible and the words that Jesus shared, it would be so very tragic and unloving if I didn’t dare talk about the reality of hell and warn people about hell.
And it would be tragic and unloving if I didn’t dare tell them they have a choice, a wonderful choice, to go to heaven by receiving Jesus as their Savior.
Jesus made the sacrifice for our sins, when we choose to believe in Him, give our lives to Him, we are gifted with eternal life in Heaven.
We all have a choice. For those who say no, who refuse and reject God’s free offer of grace, God allows their choice. If they don’t want to be with Him, although it breaks His heart, they are given their choice never to be with Him. Hell is real. It’s not a party place. It’s the absence of everything good. Anything good. It is the absence of love.
Please don’t turn away, please don’t think I’m narrow-minded or a simpleton for my belief in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. If I’m wrong about hell and heaven, no harm will be done. But if I’m correct, if what I believe is true, and you refuse the offer of Jesus as Savior, your choice to turn away will be a horrible choice.
There is nothing more horrible than eternity without God. Please don’t ignore the offer God has given you through the mercy of His Son, Jesus Christ. Your choice has eternal consequences.
“I should be destitute of all humanity if I should see a person about to poison himself, and did not dash away the cup. Or if I saw another about to plunge from London Bridge, if I did not assist in preventing him from doing so, and I should be worse than a fiend if I did not now, with all love, and kindness, and earnestness, beseech you to ‘lay hold on eternal life.’” ~ Charles Spurgeon
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” ~ John 3:16-17 (NASB)
“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.” ~ John 3:36 (NLT)
“For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” ~ John 6:40 (NASB)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 6:23 (NASB)
If you have further questions about Jesus, I wrote this for you –> Are you “good” enough for heaven.

Beautifully put my friend. As a Christian, I believe we’re all missionary in our surrounding. His presence is always with us to help.

Awww thank you, sweet Tess. Oh yes, may we continue to tell others about God’s wonderful love! BIG love and hugs back to you! 😀 XOXO
Amen! Well said!
I have encountered those Atheists and Naysayers as well, who said it’s a Fairy Tale, I’m in the Twilight zone and my list could go on. But praise God for my decision to believe and trust in Him. Such great rewarads and future benefits and an Eternal Hope.🙏❤
Bev, how I wish that they would know our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ!
