Questions and Objections  

"My God would never create Hell."
Those who say that are right. Their god would never create Hell, because he couldn't. He doesn't exist. He is a figment of their imagination. They have created a god to suit themselves. It's called "idolatry," and it's the oldest sin in the Book. Idolaters will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

"God told Joshua to kill every man, woman, and child. If that's your 'God of love' I don't want to have anything to do with Him!"
God didn't confine His wrath to the Canaanites. He proclaimed the death sentence upon the whole of humanity. We all die because of sin. Sin is braking God's holy Law. All of us are waiting on death row. Instead of standing in moral judgment over Almighty God, come down from your throne and judge yourself according to the Law of God (the Ten Commandments). You will find that you have a multitude of sins and you therefore are not in a position to point your holier-than-thou finger at God.

"I’m as good as any Christian!”
The Christian is no better than a non-Christian, but he is infinitely better off. It's like two men on a plane. One is wearing a parachute and the other is not. One is no better than the other, but because of the law of gravity the man with the parachute on is certainly better off than the man who is not wearing a parachute. The difference will be seen when they jump. Jesus warned that if we "jump" through death’s door without Him, we would perish. Our great problem is a Law that is even harsher than the law of gravity. It is the Law of an infinitely holy and just Creator. The Scriptures warn us, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God." They tell us that we are His enemy.

“I don’t see what Jesus’ death has to do with me.”
Neither did I.
I didn't realize that the Bible warns that every idle word that I have spoken, I have to give an account of on Judgment Day. I thought that as long as I believed there was a god and tried to live a good life, I would go to heaven when I died. It’s not like a had ever killed anyone. But I was wrong. The Bible says, “He who hates his brother is a murderer," and Jesus said “Whoever is angry with his brother without cause, is in danger of judgment.” He also warned if I as much as looked with lust, I had committed adultery in my heart. Sin, in my heart? I realized that God saw even the hidden sins of my heart and I knew that if God judged me by the Ten Commandments on Judgment Day, I would end up guilty, and go to Hell. It was when I acknowledged my sins, that I began to understand why Jesus died. It was to take the punishment for my sins.

How do you think you will do on Judgment Day, if God judges you by the Ten Commandments?
Take this simple test to find out...
