Is it just me, or does it seem like some fundamentalist evangelists primarily try to scare people into theologically agreeing to accept “good heaven” instead of “bad hell” by saying something today as a down payment on a future return on their investment?
Whereas I feel like I’m a voice crying out in the wilderness, “I know God, I get to walk with Him. He’s real! He’s really alive and active and powerful and fulfills His promises and you can walk with Him and know Him as your friend and experience His blessings and His peace TODAY! He’s changed me. He really changed me! Draw close to Him! Repent!”
Am I crazy to feel like there is a wide difference of perspective between the two?
And I’m not faulting anyone with a different perspective, I just don’t spend much time talking about the scariest parts of hell and Satan and darkness because they don’t even hold a candle to how good and amazing God is! I don’t need to convince people out of hell mentally/theoretically, I just want them to truly meet my God! He’s so beautiful and wonderful that surely if they even meet Him once they will be in love with Him too!
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8 NLT
“Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” So the people came streaming from the village to see him.
John 4:29-30 NLT
Tell everyone about God’s power. His majesty shines down on Israel; his strength is mighty in the heavens. God is awesome in his sanctuary. The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!
Psalms 68:34-35 NLT
