This is an unusual post for me.
It is not directed at my brothers and sisters; it is offered to those who have made that common accusation, that GOD sends people to hell.
David penned in Psalm 51
7 (5) True, I was born guilty,
was a sinner from the moment my mother conceived me. source
David is acknowledging here what is the truth.
We are born sinners.
What does that mean exactly?
That we each and every one of us are sinners — there is NONE righteous, no not one. (Romans 3:10)
It means we, each of us, are born on the road to hell.
Moreover, through the course of our lives, GOD intervenes, He puts up roadblocks, He brings people into our lives with the Good News of the Gospel that JESUS is alive to save us and desires to save us; He arranges for us to hear songs, sermons, see Scripture Passages – all these things come into our lives. And we even have creation itself to witness to us that we have a Creator. Creation invites us to look and see GOD.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, source
The Execution Stake
An Empty Tomb!
And people ignore them, go around them, jump over them, and one day they die.
They die on that road to hell. It is their destination; it is the road they refused all their life to get off of.
The Road that JESUS came and met them on and they said, “no, thank You.”
At our deaths, GOD has no choice; His holiness, His love, His mercy, His Justice MUST honor our decisions.
Hell is the place HE tried to keep you out of BUT you refused.
Hell was not made for YOU but it will open for you if you insist. (See Matthew 25:41)
It’s as simple as that.
