"You said you were my friend, that you loved me like a brother. So why didn't you share your faith with me then? Did my soul not mean that much to you? That as you grasped onto my hand after I was shot, you didn't pray for me, didn't beg me to accept your Jesus. Now I'm in a place of constant torture with no way to EVER get out. These gates are my prison, the fire's my oxygen. I can no longer breathe for I have no body to function with, just my tormented soul burning in this lake of lava. With the screams from others constantly filling the chambers, my own joining with the mix. You said you loved me, but you kept silent. You said you'd do anything for me, but you kept the one and only freedom from me. You knew you would go to Paradise whereas I'd fall to the fire of hell. I wish you were here."
"I couldn't be bothered by you, I was too busy to take the time to share my faith. We were always doing something else anyway, I used it as my excuse to avoid talking about how it is to be a Christian. So when the topic came up I'd simply shrug it off, change the subject. It wasn't important, wasn't worth the waste of sharing with you. You wouldn't have understood anyway, so it was better to brush it under the rug. To let your soul burn for the rest of eternity. I was pretty sure the fire wouldn't bother you much anyway, you were always a daredevil. Enjoy the flames. "
[link] A lot of good information/revelation about hell.

That is why I burn with this passion, because I couldn't live if someone I cared for burned forever in the lake of fire and I did nothing to help stop it. I don't want to EVER be one of those people that say 'Don't bother me about my faith. don't bother me because I'm too busy.' I don't WANT to be that heartless. And so many are. That one conversation to a friend can save their soul, Why doesn't that bother you? Why doesn't their life mean anything to you?
You may hate me for coming down on you all, you may hate me for my strong stances on His Word. I can stand that hate, I want to be hated for Him, because then am I doing SOMETHING right! I'd rather be hated by some and help win over souls for Christ than to be loved by all of you and have my best friends burn in hell forever.
BECAUSE I WAS TOO CHICKEN OR TOO BUSY FOR THEM!
Why? Because hell isn't folklore to scare little children, it is a real place. Why? Because I care enough to make sure as many souls don't go there. Why? Because God loves you and He wants you with Him for eternity!
Oh, I know exactly how you feel. My friend, my BEST human friend, in all of the entire world... just, doesn't understand. She doesn't understand what hell is like, she doesn't see how much I care, she doesn't see the truth, she DOESN'T UNDERSTAND! And she just keeps saying that it doesn't matter, that 'then I'll just go to hell.' It BREAKS. MY. HEART. Worse than any physical pain, worse than my own going to hell, would be the pain of my friend going to hell. I don't know what to do, but I know one thing: I will not ALLOW her to go to hell, not if I can DO something about it. I just, don't know what to do...
Wow that's definitely a lot of information there. I read a good amount of it so far, will have to save it to make sure I don't lose my spot.
I do agree fully, I was even just mentioning to my dad this morning, that I fully believe that God doesn't send people who never had the chance to believe in Him to hell (like the said person in this piece, this was such inspired by that video I mentioned in the comment. I was hoping it'd just encourage more believers to share their Faith more openly) But yes, ultimately I don't think people like the guy in this story/letter would be sent to hell to die because he didn't choose not to believe in Jesus, he just never heard the truth OF Jesus. Therefor I believe that when that time comes God will give that soul a chance to believe in Him or not.
Thank you for sharing this link, it's got a lot of good information/revelations in it. Makes a lot of sense.
so true. We take our Salvation for granted ... if we could ever really conceive what hell is like, what an eternity without God is like then I think we would be more vigil and passionate about sharing the gospel message...for there is no other way to God the Father except through Jesus Christ the Son. Amen!
Amen and Amen! Couldn't agree with you more! I've heard of people who died and went to hell, experienced everything in hell but came back to life. Zealous to know Jesus afterward. We can only hope and pray that by use sharing Jesus' truth and Salvation others will believe and therefore not go to hell...
That's simply wonderful. I love the message, and it's very encouraging. We should share our faith with those around us when we have the chance, whether we think they will accept it or not because it is better that we give them a chance to change their fate than to knowingly let them suffer for eternity.
