I get the feeling from a lot of folks I talk to that they have an image of God being some type of “big meany!” “I just can’t believe He’d actually send people to hell,” seems to be a common statement. The real problem here is that people are looking at God and blaming Him for the actions of people. God does not send people to hell. People choose to follow Satan and his angels into depravity, in effect choosing NOT to go with God. I don’t have a picture window into the hereafter, but I sincerely doubt anyone will be screaming, “that’s not fair,” when they meet their maker. When we see our actions in His light, I’m quite sure those who’ve denied Jesus as Lord will understand that they are only getting what they chose, and what they deserve. Those who did choose Jesus will be getting far more than they deserve!
“For the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9b-10
