Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: According to the scriptures many people are choosing the broad way that leads to eternal death. There is a reason for why people are making such a choice.

Why People are Choosing Hell

Isaiah 5:8-23

There are six woes given in the verses of scriptures read this morning as a warning to those who have gone the way of evil.

Jesus spoke more of hell than heaven because of the urgency to warn the people of this dreadful place

Vs.14 Hell hath enlarged herself

See: Isaiah 66:24 Isaiah ends his prophecy with a picture of this dreadful place

Why is this statement made over 2700 years ago so true today?

1. The Falsehood of Religion

See: Isaiah 1:10-17 The worshipped the LORD in vain

Statistics tell us there are thousands of different religions in our world today!

There are billions of people today that are trusting in a ritual and their own righteousness trying to obtain spiritual favor with God.

Mention: matt. 15:14 They be blind leaders of the blind, and if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch

The best a false religion can do for man is clean up the outside of the vessel he resides in!

2. The Failure to Witness and Warn

Mention: Psalms 142:4 No man careth for my soul

See: Ezekiel 2:1-7, 3:14-17

See: Ezekiel 33:7-11

God has called us to be…

a. A Living Witness

See: Matt. 5:16

1 Peter 2:12

2 Cor. 3:1-2 Ye are our epistle

b. A Verbal Witness

See: Acts 20:25-31 Paul’s testimony

One writes “If every Christian could spend 5 minutes in hell we would not be complacent”

Mention: Luke 16:27-28 send Lazarus to my father’s house…

3. The Fact of the Scriptures

Mention: Matt. 7:13-14 The many that will go through the wide gate and the broad way that leadeth to destruction

See: Luke 13:22-24 Many will seek, but shall not enter in

4. The Fashioning of this World

See: Isaiah 5:20 Those that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light and light for darkness…

The world system is designed to lead people away from and not unto God!

Mention: 1 John 2:15-17, 5:19 The whole world lieth in wickedness

Method: Movie, Music, and Media

Mention: John 12:31 The prince of this world…

Also: 2 Cor. 4:3-4 The god of this world

5. The Fatal Choice of Man

George Barna: 78% of adults do not believe in a literal hell (52% just separation from God, 16% no after life) 32% of the adults in America believe in a literal hell

Mention: Deut. 30:19 Choose life or death

Also: Joel 3:14 multitudes in the valley of decisions

Rev. 9:20 And they repenteth not of the works of their hands

People are choosing hell a place with no laughter, light, or love!
