Where would we be without Jesus

Published on

The sermon is called Where Would We Be Without Jesus.

The answer is: we'd all be in hell one day. But, because of Jesus, Christians will not.



Have you ever wondered?
How does hell fit the character of a loving God?

What is hell like?

What benefits are there for Christians and non-christians to understand what the Bible reveals about hell?

These and other questions should be answered in the sermon tomorrow. I have never heard a sermon like this, let alone given one. Jesus spoke of hell more than anyone else in the Bible. Why? Come and hear.

This teaching will not frighten Christians.

The goal of the sermon is to: help us be more grateful to God that we are not going to hell
and to motivate us to prevent others from going there.
