The Reality of Hell

Here is a sermon I recently preached about the reality of hell. It is a counter-intuitive thing, this sermon has been one of the most requested sermons that I have preached in quite some time. I’m thinking the reason for that is that this is a topic that is not preached about much these days. To fast forward to the sermon you can go to 24:45.

“Not called!’ did you say? ‘Not heard the call,’ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house and bid their brothers and sisters and servants and masters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face — whose mercy you have professed to obey — and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world.” -William Booth
