Isn't it amazing how abandoning a belief in eternal Hell [in the eyes of too many Christians] is the equivalent of
abandoning faith in the Living Jesus, His atoning/blessing/cleansing/remiting Blood, repentance, good works, sanctification unto obedience and holiness, His ascension and seating at God's right hand, and His return to judge the living and the dead at the resurrection?
All they have to look at is whether or not you believe in eternal separation from God and suddenly to them that's the equivalent of your level of belief in sin, cleansing from sin through the Blood of Christ, being drawn to God through the Blood of Christ (Ephesians 2:13), and whether or not you're going to live a holy and evangelizing life that's fruitful in good works and intimate with the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit!
Is this not the equivalent of saying that if there's no eternal Hell that there's nothing beautiful and desireable about Jesus Christ and that if there's no eternal Hell then His Blood does next to nothing in our lives when it's at long last applied? Is this not the equivalent of [unconsciously] saying that if there is no eternal Hell then God should go to Hell in their view?
I'm personally thankful that my sins have been remited and that I've been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, that I'm seated in heavenly places in Christ, that whatsoever I ask the Father in Jesus' Name He gives me, and that His Kingdom is not needlessly divided for all of eternity between the lost and the righteous that loved them in this life!
I'm personally thankful that the gates of Hell won't prevail against the Church or the revelation that Jesus is the Anointed, the Son of God. I'm personally thankful to have the Keys of the Kingdom and to be ruling/reigning in life through the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness that are mine through Christ Jesus. I'm personally thankful that I've overcome all things through Jesus Christ, even if there were neither an eternal nor a temporary Hell.
