Reason #10 God said his universe was 'very good', so is Hell a good thing created by God?
God said his universe was 'very good', so is Hell a good thing created by God? Not! No Hell, as defined above is the ugliest thing people can imagine.
May I suggest you go to YouTube and do a search ‘Hell is real’? Watch a few of the hideous videos on the subject and you may soon realize just how ugly man’s imagination can get.
In one video, I watched a naked man was falling down a hole of fire. The walls of this fire hole where of fire.
His hair was on fire, as was his entire body, inside and out. He was screaming and writhing in pain as he was falling, endlessly tormented.
If this wasn’t so ugly, it would be laughable. And God created this for his wayward children? No escape. No end. Pathetic!
I heard Dr. Erwin Lutzer, as Head of the Moody Institute say that the wicked in Hell would ‘feel pain 100 times more intensely than they did on Earth!’
I went to see him in Tampa, Florida, while he was there at a conference I attended, but I was not impressed with that statement.
My first thought was: ‘Where THAT in the Bible?’ This is just another example of men shoving their ideas down the throats of hapless ones who just accept things at face value and refuse to do their own thinking.
How could anyone call torture ‘very good’? If we are appalled when a human criminal tortures someone, why is it that we are OK with the idea that our God and Father would do this?
His punishments are temporary and for our good, to bring us back to a loving relationship, not to give God some kind of fiendish pleasure in making it last for all time to come. How could anyone relegate such behavior to the Great and Awesome God of the Universe?
This is the height of Blasphemy!
Here’s a section of scripture that seems especially fitting here: Ezekiel 34:1-3 ‘And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them,
'Thus says the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 3 Ye eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed: but you feed not the flock.'
Is that not what our 'Christian' pastors are doing with this offensive dogma of Hell?
