Is There Really a Hell?
In 1971, John Lennon of The Beatles wrote a song about imagining there's no Heaven or no Hell, everyone living in peace and the world being as one. He was a dreamer but his dream ended when he was shot and killed in 1980. I wonder if today his opinion about the afterlife would be different from his song. In our passage today Jesus talks about Hell. It's probably been a while since you've heard a sermon about Hell, but Jesus spoke about Hell more than anyone else in the Bible. So today we're going to see some of the reasons people prefer to reject the certainty of Hell.
