Now i understand why people get put in hell and burn for ever. Not only did evil people choose to do evil instead of obey God, they did go out and do evil. They were not forgiven of their sins, and so they are judged and they must pay for their sins. There are only two options people have – Life or Death.
Deuteronomy Chapter 30
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against
you, that I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both
thou and thy seed may live:
20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and
that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou
mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the
length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land
which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham,
to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
It reminds me of a parent who tells his child to behave, or else the child is going to get punished. The disobedient child keeps disobeying until he is confronted by the parent. At that point, the little disobedient child starts crying and promising to behave, because he knows he is about to be punished. It’s too late though when people die and realize they are about to be punished. Because like the little child, it’s too late for them to change. They are going to be punished for their disobedience. They can’t “go back and be obedient”. They can’t “undo” their disobedience. It’s too late for them, and very unfortunate, because the wages of sin is death. Now it’s easy for me to understand why people are sent to hell and burn for ever. Those people chose evil, and when people choose evil, they choose death.
