Iíve learned that the way you start to fear something or someplace is by learning about it. When I first heard the term Bermuda Triangle, I was not afraid of it. But when I studied it and learned about the past of it, it struck fear in me. Until I went to Leatherneck in 2004, I had only heard the words brown recluse. But when I got there they told us about this poisonous spider, what it looked like, and what it does to humans. And I got scared! The acronym STD didnít mean a thing to me until I got to health class in 9th grade and saw the gross disturbing pictures! If you want somebody to fear something, you need to teach them about it! That having been said, Iím going to bust Hell wide open today.
Hell is bad! It is a bad word! It is a bad place! It is a bad idea! People never truly knew that to tell someone ďgo to HellĒ was to tell them to go to a place for unredeemed men; a lake of inextinguishable fire; a place of never-ending torment! Parents who tell their children, and preachers who tell the congregations ďget right, live right, and stay right, or youíre going to HellĒ are saying Hell is a bad place. You donít need to be there! In fact, they are asking you what in Hell do you want?
As you consider life in its simplest form, you should be ever so grateful to know you could get up this morning, look around the house, and find everything the way it should be. You had food on your table, clothes on your back, and a little bit of money in your pockets! Now you know some people have more than others, and they are comfortable here. But beware if they should lose sight of where their blessing comes from and start thinking too big! You see, if they make a mistake and think they are so such-a-much, they could end up in Hell!
Note these comparisons: On a hot day, you can pour yourself an ice cold drink, and even crunch on the ice for coolness effect after the liquid is gone. This isnít the deal in Hell. If youíre drinking hot tea or sipping soup, you can blow on your spoon and the liquid will soon cool. This doesnít happen in Hell!
Because of manís advanced knowledge, he is skillful in caring for burns of any degree. A little first-aid in the home for popping grease, scalds, or singes, and trauma and emergency treatment for larger scale burns, can in dude time, heal and only leave a trace of a scar. But if one should go to Hell, heíll find no relief for his burns that never heal. The local painkillers can give immediate and long-lasting relief to a burn victim, but in Hell, there might even be well-known
