The topic of today’s episode is based on a question that was sent in by one of our listeners.
QUESTION: I am just wondering if fire and brimstone legalistic Christians have a bad approach……Does God want us to shout “REPENT OR BURN IN HELL!” I would not say that is not very loving execution of the gospel. Even if they did repent and turn to Jesus they probably still have those desires they need to work through. I assume they would be afraid to discuss it after being made to feel worse than the average sinner. My whole point is should these sort of “scare tactic” Christians be avoided and ignored? Or does God actually work that way sometimes.
Also, should Christians threaten other Christians with repent or burn in hell, are you ready for the rapture, blood moons, fireballs from heaven because of sexual sin, and all other scary aspects of Gods wrath toward fallen man? Basically should these things be used as teaching tools amongst believers? On the other hand should we use these scary attributes of God to reach the lost? Because I have seen these tactics directed at Christians and also directed at the lost by well meaning christians…but honestly it messes up my perception of God if i let it sometimes and talking with many atheists they have expressed they only see an angry God. I will use a quote from a song that gives me panic “His return is very soon so you BETTER be believin that our God is an awesome God” many Christians base there entire theology on that excerpt from our god is an awesome God.
