“Christians” going to Hell.
Do not be deceived about this. The blood of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins cannot be taken lightly. We must repent of our sins when we become Christians, when the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all past sins (and God therefore forgives us our past sins and welcomes us into the Kingdom of God). We also receive the Holy Spirit when we become Christians to guide and enable us in our Christian walk. The Holy Spirit also should not be taken lightly. True Christians do not go to Hell when they die, but to Heaven. But we have to be serious about our salvation. We need to be true Christians and serve and obey God wholeheartedly, living according to what his Word and the Spirit says, and growing to maturity of the faith and the knowledge of God, in a delightful relationship with Him, and make sure that we don’t become slack in our devotion and love for God. “Christians” who live in a half-hearted relationship with God, or sin often, can lose their salvation, and go to Hell when they die.
Someone needs to tell the truth about this. The good side is that a strong and devoted relationship with God is very rewarding, with all kinds of interesting activity, and He has great and wonderful things in store for his faithful and chosen ones, in this life and hereafter.
Matt 5:21, 22 [WEB]
You have heard that it was said to the ancient ones, ‘You shall not murder;’ and ‘Whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I tell you that everyone who is angry with his brother without a cause will be in danger of the judgment. Whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ will be in danger of the council. Whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of Gehenna [means: Hell].
Matt 5:29 [WEB]
If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.
Matt 10:28 [WEB]
Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.
Mark 9:43 [WEB]
If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having your two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire, ‘where their worm doesn’t die, and the fire is not quenched.’
Rev 2:4, 5 [WEB]
But I have this against you, that you left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I am coming to you swiftly, and will move your lamp stand out of its place, unless you repent.
Rev 3:1-5 [WEB]
… I know your works, that you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and keep the things that remain, which you were about to throw away, for I have found no works of yours perfected before my God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard. Keep it and repent. If therefore you won’t watch, I will come as a thief, and you won’t know what hour I will come upon you. Nevertheless you have a few names in Sardis that didn’t defile their garments. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Rev 3:15-19 [WEB]
I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;’ and don’t know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous therefore, and repent.
