God Honors Our Choice
We all have wandered away like sheep; each of us has gone his own way. ISAIAH 53:6
How could a loving God send people to hell? That’s a commonly asked question. The question itself reveals a couple of misconceptions.
First, God does not send people to hell. He simply honors their choice. Hell is the ultimate expression of God’s high regard for the dignity of man. He has never forced us to choose him, even when that means we would choose hell.…
No, God does not “send” people to hell. Nor does he send people to hell. That is the second misconception.
The word “people” is neutral, implying innocence. Nowhere does Scripture teach that innocent people are condemned. People do not go to hell. Sinners do. The rebellious do. The self-centered do. So how could a loving God send people to hell? He doesn’t. He simply honors the choice of sinners. from When Christ Comes
The Son of God came to earth to meet humanity’s most crucial need—forgiveness and reconciliation. There’s nothing we can do to be good enough, but Jesus lived a perfect life and died in our place (2 Cor. 5:21). If you’ll trust Him as your Savior, you will live with Him forever in heaven. You can use the following prayer or your own words:
Lord Jesus, I believe You are truly the Son of God. I confess that I have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed. Please forgive all my wrongdoing, and let me live in relationship with You from now on. I receive You as my Savior and recognize that the work You accomplished once and for all on the cross was done on my behalf. Thank You for saving me. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Amen.
