Here is something I read on Facebook.

An Awesome God, and little ole’ me

by Lester Peoples

Who would have ever thought fifty years ago that a time would come in America where men would take on themselves to be as smart intellectually as their creator, as they devise and scheme in their own corruptness, or follow after Satan and worship his appointed ones of wicked, evil, and darkness. Even Satan is a created, angelic creature of God made to worship God and act as messengers to serve Almighty God. But personal ego, due to his beauty and power, led him to fall, taking a third of fellow angels with him. God has allowed him to be in the position that he holds as ‘Prince of the power of the air’ on earth, but with “limited” power used against mankind, only to torment, but not indwell physically. God has his reason for allowing Lucifer/Satan to keep on with his schemes, but the secret things belong to the Lord, our God. We have a book called the holy bible that contains all the instruction man needs if he will follow directions given; obey the laws and commandments and in faith, believe; he can be approved and will be blessed.

What if?

Have you ever looked back at some decision you made and wondered what would have happened if you had decided differently?  During the summer of 1957, when I was sixteen years old, I made the most important decision of my life.  I put my faith in Jesus Christ so that my sins could be forgiven.  Sometimes I wonder what my life would have been like if I had not done that.

God’s hatred

A lot is said about God’s love.  It is the topic of the most well-known verse in the Bible.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  (John 3:16)

But how often have you heard anyone say anything about God’s hatred?  Some people believe that God never hates anyone or anything because they believe all hatred is wrong and God never sins.  Here is what the Bible says about that.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven . . . a time to love, and a time to hate.  (Ecclesiastes 3:1,8)

When we hate our hatred is usually sinful because we seldom know when hatred is called for.  (Our love can also be sinful.  We love something that God has told us we shouldn’t love or we love one thing more than another when we should love the second thing more.)  God always knows when it is the proper time to love or hate.

Which Gehenna was Jesus talking about?

Gehenna was the name of a valley near Jerusalem which, in the time of Jesus, was used as a garbage dump.  Even the bodies of convicted criminals were disposed of there.  A fire was continually burning to consume the trash.  Jesus spoke of Gehenna several times but the word is usually translated as “Hell.”  Did the translators make a mistake or was Jesus applying the name of the valley to a place of future punishment?  Many false teachers who deny the existence of Hell claim that Jesus was only talking about the valley.  The best way to answer this question is to look at what Jesus said about it.

Rebellion in Hell

I found this on an atheist site.

We all know that fundamentalists use hell as an instrument of fear to keep people from leaving religion. This is my rebuttal, let’s assume they are correct and hell really exists. Even that will not work as punishment system, why? Because how may people will go there? Let’s say half of human population that is 3.5 billion people. Do you really think those 3.5 billion will just accept that and will not rebel against whoever manages hell? People are good in organizing ourselves against any common enemy – we all hate oppressive regime in the real world. Heck, 3.5 billion rebels in hell will topple whoever rules there.

The author has some misconceptions about what we believe but he brings up an interesting idea; is it possible that the residents of Hell will try to rebel?

Our eternal destiny

It is a common belief among Christians that when a person dies he immediately goes either to Heaven or to Hell and remains there for all eternity. A careful study of the Bible shows that this is not correct, although it is very close to the truth.
