This is Just-A-Minute. According to Gallup 70% of Americans believe in hell, but only 6% of them believe they might go there, while 79% have no fear. I fear we preachers may be at fault. We have so mightily preached “God is love” and “God is merciful and forgiving”, that no one considers that God is also just and demanding. As swine wallow in the mire, we seek the sludge of sin; as vile vermin feed on rotting carrion, we gorge on filthy abominations. And it is done with no fear! There is neither fear of God, eternity, hell or punishment. So convincing have we preachers been that God’s grace is undeserved, that man has decided to continue in sin that grace may abound! But the Holy Spirit declares: “God forbid!” The Day of Judgment is at hand! The only deterrent that delays its arrival is God’s longsuffering and it nears its end. Only in Jesus is there hope.
