Few Preach Hell Now

Hell is so seldom mentioned today that when it is preached you are startled. You open your eyes wide and say: "Only a few preach hell now!"
Because so few preach it now, hell is rarely thought about. Why is it so seldom mentioned in the pulpit? You admit that you often heard it preached in days gone by, and it seemed to be needed then. But is it not now? Why not? Has the Bible changed, or has hell—that dread place of the departed lost—become so unpopular, so unpleasant to the ear of the world, that the unconverted will not hear it? Must the message be suited to the times, and, in pleasing the unbelieving hearer, no hell be preached?
The wicked dead, in past days, were destined for such a place. What becomes of those now who live and die without Christ? One thing for sure—they are not with the righteous. God would ruin heaven if He allowed sin to enter that holy place. True, He loves sinners, but He hates sin; and if sinners refuse, in life, God's provision for their cleansing—the precious blood of Jesus—then their sin must take them, in death, to the eternal abode of sinners.
Is not this future destiny of the unrighteous that same hell which so few now preach about? Is it just and right to let them go to such a place without warning? Whitfield, McCheyne, and other godly men in their day made no mistake by preaching of death, judgment, and eternity, and warning thousands to flee from hell to Christ. Their authority was the whole Word of God, unbiased by man's opinions. They spoke the word of truth and it is still true today.
If no one preached about death it would be absurd to say that men do not die; and if no one preaches hell, it is just as absurd to say that men do not go there. Men may hush it up, pulpits shut down on it, infidels deny its existence; yet HELL IS. The unbelief of man does not alter the fact that "the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." Psa. 9:1717The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalm 9:17).
Oh, sinner, believe the Word of God, else you will be shut out forever from God and Christ, from light, love and peace. You may be saved today! It was to save men from sin and hell that Jesus came and died. Has He saved you? If you will not have Christ as your Savior in this life, you'll not see Christ nor heaven in all eternity.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3: 16.
