Today, Desmond’s visitor(Kelvin) asked me:
Have you wondered why good people still go to hell? Are they even deserving of it?
Hahah yes I most definitely answered him already. But I am sure many people out there are asking the same questions as well. Why not? Humans are full of doubt. But doubt is good, it brings us closer to God. My answer was immediate, don’t ask me why I don’t know why I thought of it either but thinking back, it all made perfect sense.
Humans are of a sinful nature, no matter how good a person is, people would have all sinned before consciously unconsciously or subconsciously. In the bible it is said that Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:5-7 NO ONE comes to the Father except through JESUS! In the same way, a good person who does not know Jesus will not be able to go to God since he does not know the Son! You see, Christians aren’t perfect people. We sin too, perhaps even more than what the good people who do not know Jesus do. But we have a redeemer who forgives us of our wrong doings and sins as long as we repent, we have a saviour who has died for US we were redeemed through the SON!
It is indeed regretful and heart-breaking that many good people still go to hell because they do not know Jesus. But make this clear, God didn’t send people to hell. It was the un-forgiven sins of the people which sent them to hell, Jesus’ heart breaks when he sees people suffering in hell what more will He do to save us while we are still on this earth!
On a side note, do you know who else goes to hell? It is said that only pure, obedient Christians who lived by faith were able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The way to Heaven is indeed narrow, I just can’t imagine how big and wide the path to Hell is. That’s right, disobedient Christians will spend eternity wandering, outside the gates of the Kingdom. They are of many, but they are still empty and lonely. Obedient Christians will get to enjoy the riches of His kingdom, His special children will get to live in mansions and I guess others will live in normal houses? haha :) We’re but living in the end times, the Kingdom has been completed and Jesus is just waiting for the right time to usher us in. Blessed are those who hold on! It is nearer than most of us think it is, but most certainly God is coming back. I’m excited, are you?
I saw this on one of my friend’s FB:
Have you ever asked yourself why did God choose you out of the 999,999 others? Why you came into this world while others die at birth? Why your still alive when people around you are dying? Why people your age are suffering but you are living in moderate or on the high rollers list? Why she is prettier or he is much mo…re handsome than you? Do you have the answers for it?
Here’s the standard answer:
God has a plan for you, He is waiting for you to participate in this wonderful plan. He has set you aside to use you greatly for His Kingdom, wherever God places you it is to build you never to pull you down, it is always to see you excel for His Kingdom to your highest potential. You are wonderfully and fearfully made, you are made in the image of God Himself, look! You are the most prettiest/handsome to Him! ( Cause you are His creation, and no! God didn’t make a mistake, nobody is a mistake! )What more can you ask for!
Ah well, finished. Tomorrow, it’s chiong-ing time for my studies. God I trust your timing and I pray that you grant me the wisdom and knowledge to finish what I am about to do. I am scared but I have faith that this can be overcome-d with you, I just ask for your blessings to be over me and I thank you, in Jesus’ mighty name I pray, AMEN.
