I’ve often heard Christians say, “If I hadn’t been saved, I would have split hell wide open”
I thought when they said that…”No, we aren’t that special as big time sinners. Hell would have just opened it’s gaping mouth to receive that person as just another foolish man or woman who refused to accept the Lord’s free offer of Grace and Salvation”. Like the song of the late Frank Sinatra, “they did it their way”. Mankind in it’s folly has tried to circumvent the Truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, as if to shake their fist in protest to the moving of the planets. It won’t work, It never has worked and never will work. Without believing in and receiving the Lordship of the Lord Jesus, and being born again, there is no other way to salvation.
Unbelievers often say, God is unfair to send people to a place of torment. To that I say, they should be glad He came as the Lamb of God and sacrificed Himself at the hands of wicked men who were His own creation in order to save them and free them from the bondage of sin and spiritual death. How can anyone blame the Lord God for crimes they themselves committed? Is that too hard for anyone to understand? Then begin seeking the truth of God in the Bible, and in prayer; the Lord will respond to anyone honestly seeking Him in spirit and in truth.
“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matt:10-28
