God’s written word must be diligently studied and rightly understood.

 

We know nothing about the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Gospel of Grace through faith alone except for what’s written in Scripture.

Believing what God has revealed in His written word is all important for Christians, yet many today say they don’t believe in Hell and eternal punishment.

Christians don’t believe what the Scriptures clearly teach because the vast majority of the shepherds who feed them no longer preach the whole counsel of God.

Once Protestant preachers preached condemnation and damnation, but from today’s pulpits, the word Hell is enveloped in silence. Hell fire sermons have slowly disappeared from the visible Christian church.

The doctrine of hell has become a side issue and regulated to a place of unimportance. Condemnation, damnation, and Hell fire have been set aside for sermons on God’s unconditional love and the love of Christ.

The doctrine of hell and ever lasting punishment makes people uncomfortable, yet no one spoke more on the torment of Hell and the final judgment than Jesus Christ. In fact, Jesus spoke more about Hell than He did Heaven.

In the story about Lazarus and the Rich Man, Jesus described Hell as a real place of eternal torment. The rich man in Hell could see (he seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom), could speak (he cried and said), could plead (Father Abraham, have mercy on me), could feel (dip the tip of his finger in water), could feel pain (I am tormented in this flame) could remember (Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime) and could pray (I pray thee).

The underlying message of the story is that it’s better for a person to die poor and go to Heaven than to die rich and go to Hell.

Jesus taught that Hell should be avoided at all costs. “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”

The Scripture describes Hell as unquenchable fire, eternal fire, a lake of fire, a furnace of fire, and a place of outer darkness and torment where there’s wailing, weeping and gnashing of teeth and the worm dies not. Jesus said it’s a real place of eternal, conscious punishment.

People believe that a loving God would never punish people in eternal torment. But unbelief doesn’t change reality. It doesn’t matter how many people believe something; their unbelief does not negate that Hell is a place of future punishment and the final destination for unbelievers according to the Scripture.

Peace.

Both the Old and the New Testament Scriptures make it clear that women are not to have spiritual authority over men. The OT teaches that men were under the law, and that women were under the men. This is God’s order.

God created man, and from the man He created the woman as a help mate, who by default is the weaker vessel. “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”

In The Fall, Eve was deceived by Satan, not Adam. “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” Yet the sinful nature entered the human race through Adam, not Eve.

The sinful nature is passed on through the man, not through the woman, which is why the Christ had a human mother. Although she possessed a sinful nature, that nature could not be passed on to Jesus because God was His Father.

Jesus is the second Adam, and like the first Adam, He too did not have a sinful nature. However, He differed from Adam in that He could not disobey God and fall to temptation because He was the God-man “for God cannot be tempted with evil.”
