I asked this on Yahoo answers. Why don't the best known preachers preach hell like Spurgeon, Finney, Edwards,ect...? Here is one answer I got.
Jesus Christ here in Spirit is The Living Truth that God is infinite love and lavish mercy !
Some Day here in God's Light and Life eternal, more Spirit-led humans will really know in living faith that God is just as loving, merciful, kind and gracious as Jesus Christ is ! He is ! Read and believe John 12:31-32 !
The reason that, today, over 2/3 of all Christian churches in the USA never teach "hell-fire, brimstone and eternal torment" is that "hell" never existed ! Each year, more Christian churches will totally cease preaching a false "god of wrath and vengeance"; God never changes; we grow more spiritual and more loving, albeit very slowly it seems. Bible scholars fully know that "hell" in the Bible is only a bad translation of "sheol" which means "grave-site", and "gehenna" which means "garbage dump". The rich Jews who died were put in "sheol"; and dead poor Jews and criminals were tossed in "gehenna", a garbage dump outside the city which was burned off frequently for sanitation and to remove the bad smells.
Read now carefully in prayer the actual words of Jesus Christ in John 16:7-16 Back then, even Jesus' apostles and disciples could NOT bear all of the Truth that Jesus taught ! So Jesus, today and forevermore, continues here as He the Spirit of All Truth ! and ever unfolding in stages to us ! The living prophets and ambassadors of our Living Father God are far ahead in spiritual comprehension than the old, stale, crystallized intellectual theological dogmas of non-progressive church doctrines made up by pompous men ! Personal God-consciousness at all places and at all times is at hand ! Churches can not hold back the great advance in God and in His Truth !
"That which is old and true must abide; but also have the faith and courage to accept that which is new and True -- both are part of Eternal Living Truth."
Peace and progress in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth !
