All About GOD

All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Hello, all. A topic I and struggling with in my Christian walk is how can I love God knowing he created Hell? The thing that really bothers me is that God created humans (he didn't have to,) and if we step out of line, we get to burn in Hell for eternity! It seems messed up that God would create humans just so he could have fellowship, and so he could receive adornment from us - God is perfect and he had fellowship with the Angels, so why mess with us? It's sickening, honestly, knowing that billions of souls are in torment because they went the wrong way, even more so that they were created knowing that there was a chance they could go there to begin with. I'm just so furious about all of this, and I can't bring myself to live a Good that would create humans knowing they could suffer eternally. If I have been serving God, it's been out of fear, not love.

Brandon,

I know your comment isn't directed towards me, and I'm sure JB will respond, but I'm wondering what it is that you're not able to believe? 

Do you believe that you've sinned against God?

Do you believe that without Jesus you will be separated from Him in Eternity? 

Do you believe that Jesus died and rose again back to life to defeat sin and death for you? 

Do you believe that his suffering, death and resurrection is enough to save you? 

If the answer is yes to these questions than you are saved.  You're not saved by the things you do or by your feelings.  You're saved because you believe and trust Him.  We are saved by Grace thru faith, not because we 'feel' saved, but because we believe God's word that we are saved.  Our feelings are unreliable at best...like a rollercoaster....they are up and down all over the place based on our circumstances, emotions, stresses in our lives etc...  

The bible says it like this in Romans 10:

For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands.[c] But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth). And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” In fact, it says,

“The message is very close at hand;
    it is on your lips and in your heart.”[d]

And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.”[e] 12 Jew and Gentile[f] are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”[g]

God has not left you.  His word says that He will never leave us or forsake us.  It also says that if we seek Him with our whole hearts we will find Him.

How's your prayer life? Are you talking to Him?  What are your study habits like?... in other words, how much time are you spending with Him?

The more we pray and see His answers to our prayers the more we are inviting Him in to intervene in our lives.  As we see Him working in our lives our faith grows and we want to talk to Him more and more.  Pretty soon it becomes a continual dialogue so that prayer becomes so natural that it's automatic even while we're having conversations with other people.  It's a continual abiding and ongoing communion.  Do you need help praying? 

Blessings, Carla

am following and being helped with the comments, verses here and i hope Brandon is also putting himself in aposition to see how it works, and one thing which brings fear is the denial of the cross, as Carla stated in one of the comments that for a man to be saved needs to declare openly that Jesus is your saviour and believe that God raised Him from the dead (read Romans). Brandon Jesus is the only chance we have of which many people have not yet discovered. Family, I always think of those who lived a sinful life like I used to live, pretending to be christians by going to church but keep on sinning but died before knowing the truth. oh my God! Brandon this is the only time we have on earth to totally submit your (our) lives to Christ Jesus as our saviour for Him only removes fear and gives total happiness. as for me, All About God .has really helped my life. Amen . 

Christina,
