After the House of Representatives passed a bill designed to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, John Pavlovitz — head of the teen ministry at North Raleigh Community Church in Raleigh, North Carolina — wrote a blog post titled, Today, I Hope That There’s a Hell.
While Pavlovitz admitted he’s “skeptical” that hell exists since it seems “incompatible with a loving God and with the very idea of Grace,” he said that “today I admit to being strangely hopeful.”
“Today I cling to the idea that somewhere beyond this life, there is a place where horrible people pay for the atrocities; where the evil humankind unleashes upon this world is returned to them in kind, and they are finally made personally accountable — where they feel the pain they have inflicted while here.
Today it feels like this world has failed the good people, and maybe hell is the only chance there is for things to be made right.
Because if there indeed is a hell, it will be surely getting more crowded after today.”
This is a time of great deception. Discernment is key. I pray people who listen to this pastor will wake up and realize that what he is teaching is not biblically sound.
