The Fire - Follow-Up

So I've thought about the video I posted yesterday. I think the guy might be off a little bit.

a) I don't think it's God's desire that people go to hell. I don't think he takes pleasure in sentencing someone to eternal damnation.

b) I don't think God took pleasure in Jesus' crucifixion.

c) (at 2:17) He says "If multiplied all the physical things (Jesus) had gone through times a thousand, it still could not cover your one sin." Didn't Jesus' horrific crucifixtion cover ALL of our sins?

d) I don't think Jesus died just so we can punch our ticket to heaven. If I remember correctly Jesus said he came so that we can have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance.

What do you think? I'm no biblical scholar, so it is entirely possible I may be off as well.

  1. He's a bit of a cranky preacher. And overly graphic. He needs to work on his people skills.

    Biblically, he's talking about Christians who go to help. I like the verse "not everyone who says Lord Lord will go to heaven." He's talking to Christians. So you could call Him "lord" coz he's your savior, but blow it in the verse that follows - "only those who do the will of the Father". So if we're NOT doing his will, we don't go to heaven.

    I think this guy is just angry. I had to turn it off.
