Hell

What are your thoughts on people who accept Jesus but still repeatedly sin.

IE I have been praying for help to quit porn and masturbation and have made some progress, but not a ton. I also judge others, fail to love my enemy, harbor wrath in my heart at times and sin in other ways, but those are the big three for sure.

I pray about these things, but I feel like I still love my son of lust often times more than I love God.

The important thing is that you're repenting, still fighting, and looking for "the way out" that God has promised in the context of temptation. One of my favorite passages: "But as for me, I will look to the Lord, I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I must bear the indignation of the Lord,
because I have sinned against him." (Micah 7:7-9) The important thing is that you keep getting up and looking to God for your sanctification (which is a process till the end of your life).

But the contents of Romans 7:14-25 cannot be ignored.
 
Hell is difficult to believe. Most Bible "translations" out there now have strategic attacks taking out the word hell in scripture. For a reason. Satan laughs. As a Bible believing Christian it's even difficult for me to think about sometimes but alas it is what is written by God. It's the reason alone why many people refuse Christianity. How could God send people to hell they say. Scripture says God is not a respecter of persons and our self perceived self righteousness are as filthy rags. Leftists should actually admire our Lord as He believes in equality. In that we're all equally terrible sinners deserving of hell for rejecting Him. How could any dirty filthy sinner be made whole to prove himself to God? To believe in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. God is a god of division. There are the saved and the unsaved. Saved from what? From hell. The saved, saints and the elect as Scripture refers to them will be with the Lord for eternity. And the Christ rejecters or Christians in name only who believed in a false Gospel and rendered the finished work of Christ null and void who believed in their works will be forever in hell. Where will you be?

In Luke 16 there's the event of the rich man dying and waking up in hell. It's the most vivid description of hell in the Bible. With that man being so tormented in unbearable fire and flame he begged for just a single drop of water. Not a glass, just a taste, just a little drop, and begged that his family be warned of their impending consequences of not believing on the Lord. We see that souls are conscious in hell and aware of such sadness of their loved ones joining them if they don't get saved.

22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

I recommend these two sermons. The sermon by Phil Kidd will make a man weep. But if you believe in the King James Bible and not doctrines of men who just want to make you feel good, you have to ask yourself honestly...is there a hell? Yes. There is.



To learn how to not go to hell and be assured of the Good News that you can live and die knowing with 100% certainty you will awaken in heaven with the Lord, please watch below, and accept Jesus Christ as your saviour.

This is Bill Wiese, a man who claims to have went to hell. He states that it isn't necessary to believe he went there, but only to see what God's word has to say.

Here he explains why an eternal hell is justifiable:

Here is his testimony on his visit to hell:

Fr. Seraphim Rose describes hell at the last page of his book Nihilism. What I found very interesting is that he states that there is a way out of hell, and that it will be purifying to some (who will see and choose the love of God and go to Heaven after all) and some will keep resisting God's love and choose the abscence of it, hence remain in hell (which is the absence of God's love). I can strongly imagine that people like Bill Gates will be horrified to feel what God has to offer and in fact choose to stay away from Heaven, but this offers a way out for those who can see God's love after all. Are there members more knowledgeable about the Orthodox perspective on hell who can confirm the view of Fr. Rose?
