“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” — John 3:17
Many Christian religious sects mistakenly portray almighty God as a cruel, sadistic deity in the sky who takes pleasure in the suffering and death of the wicked.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
Jesus confirmed this when He said in John 3:17 that our Heavenly Father loves us and sent His Son to save humanity, not to condemn it. Because God is love, His actions are motivated by love. He is merciful and kind and does not take pleasure in watching people suffer or supposedly burn in hell throughout eternity. This false doctrine of eternal torment was invented by sadistic men and religious impostors who corrupted the true message of Christ.
The difference between eternal destruction and eternal torment.
Eternal torment for the wicked is NOT biblical. However, eternal destruction IS. After the final judgement, men who refused the love and salvation of God and persisted in evil works and deeds will be destroyed in the Lake of Fire, along with Satan and his demons. But that will be the end of them, since God is also just and must judge the unrighteous. For evil doers, there will be no future existence nor reincarnation nor any kind of consciousness. Only the righteous will live forever with Jesus in the New Heavens and the New Earth.
Let us pray that God will deliver us today from every form of sin that entangles our actions and pollutes our hearts so that we may be counted worthy of His mercy, forgiveness and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
Let us redeem the precious time here in this short life and invest it well for the kingdom of God. When Christ returns, eternal peace and happiness will be our reward. Furthermore, no eye has ever seen or ear has ever heard what God has planned for those that love Him and are odedient to His will (1 Cor. 2:9).
