“No,” the oilman replied. “But I know some ol’ boys down in Houston who could put it out.”
Regardless of their skill, however, no one in Texas could put out the fires of hell. Modern man has certainly tried, through ignoring it, claiming it doesn’t exist, and so on. The May 13, 2016, edition of National Geographic reported that 58% of Americans believe in hell, down from 71% two decades ago.
Jesus talked about hell twice as much as He talked about Heaven. God has said that the fires of hell will burn forever. And that’s exactly what they will do.
When we finally get a grasp of the real horror of hell, our personal witnessing, our singing, our teaching and our preaching will take on a new urgency as never before. How can we stand by and allow others to slide into an eternity where they will burn forever? How can we sit on the Greatest News The World Has Ever Heard?
