REASON #27 Hell is what PEOPLE want; it is not what GOD wants!
Why would people want it? Because they have so much hatred for those who are not like them. They want power over them or at least the right to feel BETTER THAN THEM. They could care less about what God wants or says.
Like I said previously, men made up the idea of Hell as a place of eternal conscious torment so they could con people into the pews and out of their money. It is crooked and wrong to do such a thing. Does what people want really matter in the end? But in the final analysis, who gets what he wants? GOD or men?
God will have his way in his time. Here’s what he said to Job and his friends out of a whirlwind:
Job 41:1 'Can you draw out leviathan with a hook? Or his tongue with a cord which you let down? 2 Can you put a hook into his nose? Or bore his jaw through with a thorn? 3 Will he make many supplications unto you? Will he speak soft words unto you? 4 Will he make a covenant with you? Will you take him for a servant forever?
5 Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him for your maidens? 6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? Shall they part him among the merchants? 7 Can you fill his skin with barbed irons? Or his head with fish spears?
8 Lay your hand upon him and you will remember the battle, but do no more. 9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? 10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
11 Who has prevented me that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. 12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. 13 Who can discover the face of his garment? Or who can come to him with his double bridle? 14 Who can open the doors of his face? His teeth are terrible round about.
15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. 16 One is so near to another that no air can come between them. 17 They are joined one to another; they stick together, that they cannot be sundered (split apart).
18 At his sneezing a light shines, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. 20 Out of his nostrils goes smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. 21 His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth. 22 In his neck remains strength and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. 24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yes, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. 25 When he raises up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.
26 The sword of him that lays at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon (armor suit). 27 He esteems iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. 28 The arrow cannot make him flee: sling stones are turned with him into stubble. 29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laughs at the shaking of a spear.
30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreads sharp pointed things upon the mire. 31 He makes the deep to boil like a pot: he makes the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 He makes a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. 33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. 34 He beholds all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.'
God is SOVEREIGN. He owns everything, including you and me. He could have been an evil Being, but he chose to love and be good in all he does. Thank God he is not evil, but good and kind to all, even to those who reject him. They will not suffer forever. God will simply grieve them and let them go.
Choose life. That’s what God wants for you.
