What Kind of God Sends People to Hell?

Q: What kind of God sends His son to die for others?

A: God was not abusive to His son. His son willingly laid down His life for you, because both He and the Father love you so much

John 10:17-18 – The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.

Q: What kind of loving God sends people to Hell?

A: An unloving God? I don’t know, because my God doesn’t do that. In fact you’ll have to step over Christ’s body to get there. My God did everything in His power to save people from Hell. If you end up there it’s because you refused His free Love, forgiveness, and acceptance.

For those who never had the chance to hear about Him, He is a righteous Judge taking that into account. For those who know and refuse His love, stepping over Him, He is a righteous Judge taking that into account. A lot of people in America who refuse Him have met a self-righteous ‘Christian’ who hurt them, in which case He is a righteous Judge taking that into account. He knows all, even the hidden secrets of every person’s heart. He knows us better than we know or understand ourselves. He is the only righteous Judge.

Rom. 5:5-10 – For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. 6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

  1. Thanks for coming by my site earlier!

    The compassion of God is unceasing and His efforts to redeem us have been limitless!

    With respect to the first question, “the Son-ship” aspect of Christ refers to His taking on flesh – but we must not separate Jesus from God to the point of making Him so distinct that He ceases to be God: Jesus is God (John 8:28). God Himself took on flesh (the Son) and endured our hate so that He could take our sin upon Himself on the cross and pay the debts we rightfully owed.

    • Jesus went to redeem the Old Testament believers who were in ‘Paradise’, the fallen Eden. This place was not a place of torture, but these believers could not go before God in Heaven before Jesus died to remove their sin. The Bible says that when Jesus was raised from the dead, so were the Old Testament believers, and they all walked the streets for 40 days until their Ascension into Heaven. Since Jesus’ death, this part of Hell no longer exists. To die today is to be present with the Lord, although we do wait for the resurrection of our bodies, whereas these believers awaited the resurrection of the soul/spirit.

      Jesus also took back the keys to death and the grave during this time. He can now redeem all people from Hell who choose Him. How awesome that God not only died for us but also went through Hell to snatch us out! He is faithful to save.

      Some References:

      Eze. 31:16-17 – Then all the trees of Eden, the choicest and best of Lebanon, the well-watered trees, were consoled in the earth below. They too, like the great cedar, had gone down to the realm of the dead

      Matt. 27:52-53 – the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

      Rev. 1:18 – I am the living one. I died, but look–I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.
