HELL of ANY KIND, for ANY DURATION, ...is nothing a FEAR doctrine which does not have a place in the GOSPEL of LOVE...
Traveling at 50 miles an hour on the highway, you pass by a large bright yellow-black checkered sign says, 'Dead End'. A thought passes your mind, this highway looks great and I cannot see the end, even though you pass by a large orange sign with white letters, "Warning, this road ends in One mile, please take detour."
You scoff at the sign, "I am not afraid, I am too smart for that." You may even think, "This is nothing but fear propaganda, I am not afraid of any dead end. Why would there be a highway if there was danger. It is just some government bulls**t trying to keep me in submission and fear so they can control me and my actions."
One mile later, your car flies into the air into a sharp ravine and for 5 seconds you see your end and think, "Why didn't I listen to the warning? That warning was not to cause fear, but to save me from this end." Your car crashes head first, you are whipped so hard that all the tendons in your neck rip from your bones and just as instant, the car steering wheel along with the entire engine pushes through your rib cage and your heart bursts open. You go into instant shock, but small conscience remains unable to speak or express itself, and for twelve seconds, you sit in horror watching your blood flow around you. It is the longest twelve seconds you ever experience, it lasts for what seems like eternity but then it finishes.
Warnings, and consequences of ignoring warnings is not 'FEAR' doctrine, they are INDEED out of LOVE because LOVE ALWAYS PROTECTS! Warnings do not come out of "FEAR", they come out of wisdom and protection concerning the things that do harm us, or the actions that will end with undesirable consequence.
If you believe that warnings are out of fear, then that thought is out YOUR insecurity and YOUR denial that there are actually dangers in our life that we have been warned against. If this is you, it is you who is UNABLE in distinguish between reality and your belief system, fact versus imagination, truth versus denial.
We all reap what we sow, there is a warning of the consequence and if it is not heeded, you WILL experience it in full force not experiencing any salvation from it. Though you endure such consequence but such consequence is not infinite in duration and will end and that end is the salvation for one who endures such consequence, a salvation assured by our Lord Jesus Christ. Then there are people who adhere to the warning and are saved such consequence because they never experience it, their salvation was found in their obedience. Like you, they will be with the Lord in the end, though unlike you instead of experiencing that consequence you must endure, they reigned with Him for a time working with the Lord to deliver you from your ignorance and disobedience.NOTE TO EVERYONE:1 Timothy 5:20
Those who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning.
Warning of what? The warning that those who continue to sin, will be broken off just from the blessings of God.1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived....Ephesians 5:5
For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
If anyone teaches you to ignore warnings, do not listen! Warnings are not to cause fear they are statements of the fact there is danger to those who don't listen to them. You must run from those who teach you to ignore warnings, because it is their conscience has been seared and they have lost their sense unable to distinguish between good and evil. The blind leading the blind and they will not only fall but bring many down with them.
Hell is not a perpetual torture pit, nor is it inflicted by God. It is self-induced and birthed through the man who continues to live in disobedience. Even if there is no 'hell', there most certainly is the knowledge and understanding that you missed out and did not inherit the kingdom of God due to your disobedience. This part, can be called hell, is most definitely not a desired outcome. Though your salvation is to experience the Kingdom of God, you experience it as one with no inheritance in the outer courts of the Kingdom of heaven never able to enter into the inner courts and the Holy of Holies where those who have kept themselves clean may enter.
It is still an amazement to me how the revelation of Universal Redemption has brought an ignorance to the things which are without question have have severe warnings to stay away from. It is a befuddlement how the message of Universal Salvation has brought the stupid into people to forget everything that they were taught previously throwing the baby out with the bathwater. For those ignorant and stupid people, I pray that their eyes may be opened to the evil that they have exposed themselves to and have snared other to follow and repent and renew their clean their minds and accept a new heart.
