I USED TO WONDER ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS, THEN I STARTED LISTENING TO ANDREW WOMMACK MINISTRIES, HE KNOWS THE TRUE GOSPEL, I WAS RAISED IN A BAPTIST CHURCH (BEEN SAVED)BUT ALWAYS FELT FEAR AND CONDEMNATION. I LISTENED TO BRO. ANDREW WOMMACK FOR APPX. 20 MINUTES AND FELT LIKE THE WORLD HAD BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS. I BELIEVE THE REASON IS, WE HAVE THE CHOICE, WHETHER TO GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL, HE WANTS US TO CHOOSE HIM, BUT WILL NOT IMPOSE ON OUR FREE WILL, THAT IS WHY HE SENT HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, TO TAKE OUR PLACE IN DEATH SO WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO DIE ETERNALLY. HE GAVE US OUR OWN FREE WILL, JUST LIKE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU WOUDLN'T WANT THEM TO BE ROBOTS, YOU WOULD WANT THEM TO LOVE YOU FOR YOU. ANDREW WOMMACK IS ON T.V. AND RADIO AND ALSO HAS AN INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE.

This is not breaking news. We have heard this stuff for 2000 years. It has actually gotten really lame as time has passed. Trash Bin?

P.S Why would someone flag this?
Breaking news common now

I have watched Mr. Wommack for years, and have learned much about God's incredible majesty and all the ways He has left open for us to wonder about and even approach Him. It can't be by accident, believing as I do, that He is real, and more than that, eager for everyone who has a heart to come to Him.

Just as I don't pour poison all over my garden, knowing I will kill the good along with the "bad," God also planted a huge world here, full of living things that, according to the Bible, He was so sad about destroying, that He said He would never flood the world like that again, killing every living thing. That shows His tenderness, and why it's so wrong to think of Him as a monolith, a tyrant, or an unfeeling statue.

That's why we don't often ask for what we need, thinking He is impersonal, against us, or too great for someone like us.

All those with a heart are His. He makes Himself available to all of us at all times, through the Holy Spirit, and even draws near to us, calling our heart to life and making us wonder about Him, pray (reach out and acknowledge) Him.

How could we talk to Him in the first place without a mechanism (prayer) to calm and center ourselves to focus on a different part of ourselves, and then perceive Him there, as if a doorway in time and space opened a channel of communication on a deep and metaphysical level.

He is complex and the creator of all the complexity around us. Surely He is the Master of it all.

He also knows the world will drive us to our knees at some point, or we are not aware at all, and therefore not His. All of His will eventually, at some point in life, be exposed to the truth, to the machines of the world (socially, politically, health care, military, etc.), and if we have a heart, will certainly feel like it's the end.

It's then that the doorway between Him and us is also opened, and He feels mercy for our pain and confusion. Having nowhere else to go, we can and should go to Him.

He strengthens and calms us, and makes us able to handle the truth. Then we go right back into it, and see it ever more clearly.

In all that, there is no way His children, those with a heart (past, present or future), will not be closer to Him, since He is the one who draws close to us.

Whether we know or not, He is showing His love by not letting us be destroyed just by the knowledge of how awful this world is, and how outnumbered we are.
I think whether we communicate with Him or not, our strength to endure is all coming from Him.
People with hearts are His. They are worth everything to Him. Those without hearts (we all know some), as awful as it is, are that way because they are the children of the evil one. They are not tender or empathetic.

Hell does not scare them. They don't care about anything because they have no heart. They are not like us. The thought of suffering is a good thing to them, the suffering of others. Being ruthless, they do not suffer themselves, but instead take action. They do this to empower themselves, not to improve a situation for ethical purposes.

Ethics are only an illusion to them. Going to Hell is not a bad thing to these, and again, they are people without a heart. We experience them in life, but God knows each and every one.

These are the ones that need to be in Hell. If we knew one, that the whole world could see, then we could all agree on it.

Perhaps Stalin? Pol Pot? If there was only one like Hitler, wouldn't a human in Hell be necessary?

He's quite correct, it is us who choose to go to hell. Everyone born has thier name written on God's hand and in the book of life. However, if we choose to not accept Jesus as our savior, we take our name out of the book of life and place it in the book of death. People want to blame God for them going to hell. Yet they broke His laws and think they should be still able to go to heaven. The wages of sin (breaking God law) is death and being sent to hell.

If you want to go to heaven, someone has to take your place. They must be 100% inecent, never haven broken God's law. That is what Jesus did on the cross, we broke the law and He paid the price. The just for the unjust. The law will be satisfied one way or the other. Either you trully accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and His sacrifice or you pay the penility yourself.

There will always be those that choose death even though God offers them life. They want nothing to do with God let alone live with Him forever. God won't force them either, its thier choice.

According to Scripture, the origin of sin is found in free will. God gave us the power of choice, which in itself is a good thing. Tragically, human beings misuse their God-given freedom. CS Lewis wrote, “If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad. And free will is what has made evil possible. Why, then, did God give them free will? Because free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.”

The problem of evil is not evidence against God, it's a necessary byproduct of freedom.

I have a kingdom ok? I want peace i that kingdom and people who really love me.

So do I as God allow that kigndom to become ruined?

Why have humans created jail to hold people?

Where do you thnk evil people will go when they die?


Jail which is hell. It's the same thing, but it's more of a rebeliion thing with hell.


If God allowed evil in his kingdom and people who hated him, then he really doesn't give a crap and is not just.

hell shows he actually cares to seperate evil from good.
