Randy Alcorn's Blog: hell

Is It Unloving to Speak of Hell?

Road / Is it unloving to speak of hell?If you were giving some friends directions to Denver and you knew that one road led there but a second road ended at a sharp cliff around a blind corner, would you talk only about the safe road? No. You would tell them about both, especially if you knew that the road to destruction was wider and more traveled. In fact, it would be terribly unloving not to warn them about that other road.

 

Does being like Jesus mean not talking about Hell?

Christ says the unsaved “will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12). These days you’ll often hear people say something like, “Instead of condemning people and threatening them with Hell, we should be like Jesus and love them.”

Christian Universalism

We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20There’s a movement among Christians today towards what’s called Christian Universalism. It’s a belief that everybody ultimately will be saved—there will be no Hell, or at some point Hell will be depopulated and everyone will live forever with Christ in Heaven. It’s a wonderful thought. But does the Bible really teach it?

Is Sincerity Enough?

John 14:6I think sincerity certainly does count for something. But I also believe it counts for less than we think it does. There are sincere people, for instance, who don’t believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

Universalism: Will Everyone Go to Heaven?

Proverbs 9:10Universalism: the belief that everyone will eventually go to Heaven.

The logic behind it goes something like this:

  • God loves everyone and desires all to be saved.
  • Nothing can suppress the love or will of God.
  • Therefore all will be saved.

Mark DriscollIn this powerful nine-minute video, Pastor Mark Driscoll answers the question about whether those who die without faith in Christ go to hell.

Should We Be Against Hell or in Favor of It?

VoteIn many conversations over the last few years I’ve said to people, “If God had given me a vote on whether or not there is a hell, honestly I would have voted against it. But that is not a point of pride, it is a confession."

Does the Word “Evangelical” Mean Anything Anymore?

Searching?I’m writing this while returning from ICRS, the annual Christian book convention. I’m sitting in the Atlanta airport, reflecting on some of my conversations the past four days. I did many interviews about recent and forthcoming books, and talked with lots of evangelical booksellers, publishers, and authors.
