Not all truth is easy to hear, and, yet, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be spoken in love. Some of the hardest times in life occur when we must tell someone we love that what they are pursuing is leading to a dangerous or fruitless end. Still, we speak to them because we love them and want the best for them. Jesus, who came to save us from sin and guarantee us a place in heaven with him, spoke much more about hell than he ever did about heaven. That seems strange, doesn’t it? Although it’s certainly uncomfortable to talk about, hell is still a truth that needs to be discussed. Let’s listen to the words of Jesus in Matthew 25 as he tells us the uncomfortable truth about hell.
