Enough Is Enough

by on Jan.26, 2009, under Hope

Have you ever wondered how he can stand it? Isn’t there some point when He says “Enough is enough”? Don’t you think He must retch when we curse Him, use His name to curse others, justify killing men, women, children, because He is “on our side”?

When does He draw the line and say “The horrid things you do to yourselves and the planet you live on is more than I can stomach. Go to Ghennal!” Ghenna is used only twelve times in the New Testament, 11 by Jesus Himself as He talks about the place separated from God. The place that Revelation calls “the second death..” The place where there is eternal damnation and suffering.

The question remains, after consistent disappointment and disregard for His love, when does the Creator tell his creation to Go To Hell?

He Didn’t.

He Doesn’t.

Since before the world was formed, God hasn’t given up on his children. He offers them, you by name, a way to live with Him forever.

God Almighty offers you that hope:
Unearned, undeserved, unexplainable

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”

God allowed His son to pay the debt of our sins that we were/are incapable of satisfying. And Jesus gives us the receipt that simply says redeemed.

And yet do you think God’s told you to go to hell? One of the nagging questions that we as his creations have is: How, after all that I’ve done, can He forgive me? So what do you think?

    I think it helps to be a parent (in my case a father) to come close to understanding how God can continue and continue to forgive and forgive. When my girls want and need forgiveness, even for the worst sins, I cannot withhold from them. Love trumps everything, laws, rules, pride, and all else. He, able to love much more than me, cannot either, it is beyond Him. God is love. And I’m so glad He is.

    I have been blessed to know the loving power of forgiveness first hand with my biological father who I hadn’t talked to in years and whose relationship with me was marred by divorce at a young age, I held bitterness and resentment for a long time when he would say that he would show up for events in my life (graduation, birthdays, holidays etc.) and then not fulfill his promises. Then one day God spoke to me and told me to forgive my father and I subsequently wrote a letter to him stating that I love him and I am willing to let the past go and accept him in my life again. He was so touched by the letter that the years of misunderstandings and hurt just melted away and I had my father back. God is good and he wants us to forgive each other, I truly believe that.
