The issue concerning hell, in our last article we discussed if a Christian can actually go to hell. If you haven’t read that article, CLICK HERE
So, in this article, we will be discussing 5 things reveled in the Bible that can possibly take a Christian to hell.
33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.
35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.” Bible Source
Unforgiveness is very dangerous, and we as Christians should cultivate the habit of forgiving people irrespective of what they did to us. If we die without forgiving a person, we will go to hell.
As life is concerned, offense will always occur. You will get offended by people. And sometimes, the degree of the offense may be much that you may feel sad and not want to forgive. Jesus strictly warned about unforgiveness, if we die in offense or unforgiveness, there is no way we will make it to heaven. As a matter of fact, unforgiveness will take so many people to hell.
7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
Another thing that can possibly take a Christian to hell is hypocrisy — Hypocrites are people who do Christian works just to get praise from people. They live the Christian life because they want to get praises from people but when no body is seeing them, there lifestyle deny the Christian faith. God dislikes hypocrisy, any Christian who dies in that state will hardly enter into heaven.
3 (Secret Sin)
2 Peter 2
21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. 22 Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,”[g] and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. Bible Source
The Bible tells us that Jesus came into the world to destroy sin. Even though God loves sinners, he cannot accept people who live in sin because God is Holy. Now as human beings, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes… But God expects us to repent and get back out from our sin. Secret sin will take a Christian to hell if they keep repenting and never get out from the sin.
If you are currently struggling with sin, bow down and ask God to save you from the sin, repent and renounce the sin in Jesus Name.
1 John 2
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them.16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. Bible Source
Another thing that can possibly take a Christian to hell is worldliness. This is when a Christian is so much in love with the things of the world — the worldly music, the way sinners dress etc. God wants us to free ourselves from the love of the world.
In all these things, God loves you and I so much. So no matter how you are today, he still loves you and at the same time wants us to grow to becoming like Jesus Christ… God’s grace is available for us..
