HELL – Does It Really Exist and Why Would a Loving God Send Anyone There?

From the last posting,  ... No, we do not need a god who is more human / humane.  We need a God who is able to make humans divine.

This is what is true for all those who have invited Jesus to rescue them from the penalty of their sins.  Ephesians 2 further goes on to state the Good News for those who have been rescued by Jesus:

            But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were
dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is
only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)  For he raised us from the dead along
with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with
Christ Jesus.  So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible
wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are
united with Christ Jesus.  God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t
take credit for this; it is a gift from God.  Salvation is not a reward for the good things we
have done, so none of us can boast about it.  For we are God’s masterpiece. He has
created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long
ago.  Ephesians 2:4-10  New Living Translation
