Lots of christians these days do not take hell seriously. They ignore it, avoid it, and underemphasis it. Few preach on it, and most evangelism avoids it. There is a book I just finished Hell on trial which lists every instance in scripture where Hell is spoken. You will see that contrary to what most believe Hell is spoken of in more places than Luke 16. This is a literal account where names are mentioned and no parable as some believe. Even some are trying to get me to avoid hell when I go to abortion centers. Sorry that ain't gonna happen! I preach on hell and that God is angry with sinners everyday. I preach the law, but I also will preach Gods grace and Gods love for sinners. The puritans took Hell seriously, so did Jesus, and so should we. Do you love people? If so preach on Hell. People have a terminal disease. Why not lead them to a doctor that can save them? People are walking on a train track. Why not steer them off the track and onto the road? BUT TO DO SO you MUST convince them that they are headed to hell.
