Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 06, 2011 (have your wish)

you may have your wish

“We should observe that God
does not send anyone to hell.
He desires that none should perish (2 Pet. 3:9).
God created humans to have fellowship with Him
and provided the means by which
they can have that fellowship.
It is a human's choice to experience to agony of hell.
His or her own sin sends the person there,
and his or her rejection
of the benefits of Christ's death prevents escape.
As C.S. Lewis has put it,
sin is the human being saying to God throughout life,
"Go away and leave me alone."
Hell is God's finally saying to the human,
"You may have your wish."
It is God's leaving the person to himself or herself,
as that individual has chosen.”
- Millard Erickson
