  • If you love others, you’ll warn of God’s judgment

    I have been criticized for writing to scare and frighten or “fire and brimstone” type articles.
    I will not back down from sharing the true unfiltered message regarding the reality of hell and God’s wrath.
    God hates sin so much that he had to look away from his own son dying on the cross who became sin as a propitiation for us (Matthew 26, Mark 15.)
    Our society or culture promotes self-worth. The Bible promotes selflessness. The Bible over and over describes hell and judgment.
