Yesterday I preached one of the hardest sermons I've ever had to prepare and deliver. I titled my sermon: "Hell—A place of unending wrath, violent vengeance, striking conscience, banished isolation, and divine hatred."

My prayer beforehand was that I would not fear man. And praise God, I received some helpful and good feedback including many questions as well. It is perhaps the most neglected topic in today's contemporary churches and in modern day pulpits. Yet if we as pastors and shepherds truly loved the souls of our sheep then we would teach and not shrink back from teaching on this topic far more frequently that we often do.

You may listen to the sermon on hell here.

Hey G-Pops,
Fill me in on how it went. Thanks for preaching on a topic that is not Kosher with today's society.

I praise God you preach the whole counsel of God son.

I can't remember the last time in 20 years I heard a sermon on Hell at our church.

Love

Dad

It's not any easier for the preacher. It was probably the hardest message I've preached. It's amazing how 'fear-of-man' can easily creep in during the preaching. But God is faithful.
