God loves all people and desires that no one goes to hell.
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all
should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9
It was the last command that Jesus gave us.
Before ascending to heaven, Jesus gave us this command found in Mark 16:15,
"...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
There is a real hell to shun and a heaven to gain.
In Revelation 20:15 it says, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire." We must warn people of this place and tell them that
the only way to get our names written into the book of life is by turning from our sins
and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Life is but a vapor.
This life we are living is not even a drop in the bucket compared to eternity. As
Christians we need to help people become aware of this. Everyone needs to decide
on this side of eternity how they are going to spend eternity. According to the Bible
there are only two choices, heaven or hell. "Whereas ye know not what shall be on
the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away." James 4:14
God has promised us an abundant life here on this earth.
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that
they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10.
Despite all appearances, people who do not have a relationship with God through Jesus
do not have true peace or joy. "...the way of transgressors is hard." (Proverbs 13:15)
"...Evil pursueth sinners:" (Proverbs 13: 21) Jesus has called us to take up our cross
and follow Him (Luke 9:23) but He also promised that His yoke is easy and His burden
is light. (Matthew 11:30). Submitting to the Lordship of Christ is the most fulfilling thing
a person can do.
