Hard Questions: Week 7 | Can God Be Love and Send People to Hell?

God is both love and justice (Luke 16:19-31). There are countless truths in Scripture that are overwhelmingly good and encouraging to our hearts and minds. But there are also other true, good, and necessary Scriptures that feel more serious than inspiring, more sobering than encouraging. One of these sobering truths – that Jesus specifically teaches – is the existence of hell and eternal separation from God. While justice for serious atrocities seems right and proper, hell seems extreme for decent people who never embrace Jesus. According to the Bible, we are all sinful, separated from God, and destined to face the wrath and justice of God (Romans 3:23; 6:23). Only through Jesus and what He accomplished on the cross can anyone escape the wrath of God.
