HELL by George L. Faull
I speak as one who
believes that Jesus is the
Christ the Son of God and
the Saviour of the world as seen in the inspired
Word of God, the Bible. What I believe is not
important. What the Lord and His apostles have said
is the only objective truth that I believe is true.
Emotions, rationale and subjective thinking or
teachings of men carry no weight with a Christian
who holds the above truths. If one doubts that Jesus
is the Christ, and the only Saviour, or that the Bible
is not an all- sufficient rule of what one believes or
practices the following thoughts will carry no weight.
Their subjective feelings or emotions or past
teachings will trump the following things I am saying.
This is a true saying and worthy of all acceptation
that Jesus Christ came into the world to save
sinners. His death on the cross is what paid the
price for our sins. If there is another way to be saved
then his death was a worthless and unnecessary
death. He either paid the price or he did not.
The world religions worship men who sought truth,
sought the way and sought life. They are dead and
buried and therefore offer no hope to their
worshippers of a glorious resurrection to life, as
Jesus who arose from the dead does. Jesus on the
other hand said "I am the Way, the Truth, and the
Life and that no man could come to the Father but
by Me." John 14:26 I do not believe that Jesus is a
liar. Do you?
Jesus said "Except a man be born again he can not
enter into the kingdom," and again, “Except a man
be born of the water and the Spirit he can not enter
into the Kingdom of God!” Do you believe that He
lied or was mistaken? Is there another way?
The Bible says, "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. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world
THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED."
Was His Son's death not needed? We are then told:
"He that believeth on him is not condemned; but he
that believeth not is CONDEMNED ALREADY
BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE
NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF GOD."
Men then are lost without Christ. God, as Sovereign
Lord, has every right to make this decision, and faith
accepts this fact. God is Holy and the penalty of sin
must be paid. The penalty is death. Jesus paid it for
us and if we will not accept His payment as our
payment, then we must die and be separated from
God for all eternity. This is my understanding of
As for Hell, Jesus is the One who spoke about it. In
fact, all that we know about Hell is what Jesus told
us. He spoke more about Hell than He did about
Matthew 5:29, 10:28, 23:33 are His words and I
cannot believe in Him and not believe in the place
that He has revealed to us. He left it to His apostles
and prophets to reveal who else is going there.
John, the one men call, "the Apostle of Love," says
that no murderer has eternal life. John also reveals
who is going to be in Hell.
Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving,
and the abominable, and murderers, and
whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth
with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Revelation 22:14-15: “14 Blessed are they that do
his commandments, that they may have right to the
"From the cowardice that shrinks from
new truth, from the laziness that is content
with half truths, from the arrogance that
thinks it knows all truth, O, God of Truth,
deliver us."2 THE GOSPEL UNASHAMED April 2010
tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into
the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and
whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
Paul gives a list of people not going to enter
Heaven. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “9 Know ye not that
the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of
God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers
of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor
covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but
ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of
the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
He also lists a whole catalog of lost people in
Romans 1:29-32: “29 Being filled with all
unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness,
covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters,
haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors
of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without
understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural
affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing
the judgment of God, that they which commit such
things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but
have pleasure in them that do them.”
Peter likewise warns of the wicked men’s plight. 2
Peter 3:7: “But the heavens and the earth, which
are now, by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and
perdition of ungodly men.”
Jesus also spoke of hypocrites who were going
there. Matthew 24:51
So if believers are hypocrites they will be exposed
when God judges the hearts of men, as only He can
Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.
How foolish God would be to populate Heaven with
unconverted and unsanctified people. He charged
His angels with folly and cast them out of Heaven.
He invites those who will be born again to enter.
Even murderers, fornicators, adulterers,
homosexuals or any other kind of sinner can repent
and be born again and be saved. His grace forgives
those who accept Him. " To as many who receive
Him, He gives the power or authority to become the
sons of God." John 1:12
Heaven will be a family reunion and the children of
the devil will not be invited in. Nothing unclean or
maketh a lie shall enter there. Revelation 21:8,
God is not a fool Who would allow universal
salvation and contaminate His home. It is the home
of the redeemed and those who do not believe on
His Son are already condemned.
As a preacher of the Good News, I want to invite
everyone to the marriage banquet. The offer is to all,
no matter what anyone is or has done. To go to Hell,
a man has to step on the death of God’s Son on the
cross. Unbelief is all that is necessary to go to Hell.
The Bible promises that if anyone seeks, he shall
find, and if he knocks, he opens and if he asks he
receives. Even the utmost heathen who has never
even heard of Jesus can forsake his idols and ask
the creator, God, for help and God will see to it that
a person who knows the truth will be sent to Him.
The Bible is full of those who were seeking God and
they found Him because God sent a truth-bearer to
reveal His Will for their Life. The Eunuch, Lydia,
Saul, Cornelius are examples of this truth. Seekers
find, so there is not an excuse that they never heard.
As a herald for the King, I can only promise
Salvation to whom my King promised it.
He said, "He that believeth and is immersed
(baptizo) shall be saved and he that believeth not
shall be damned." Mark 16:16
If I promise or infer that others are saved I am not a
faithful herald. I would be a usurper of my King's
authority. He did not promise it to those who were
sprinkled (rantizo) or echeo (poured) but to those
who were baptizo (immersed).
I refuse to usurp His authority and play God. I
cannot make the decision whom He should save
and whom should be lost. Because I love God and
love my fellow man I will herald just exactly what He
has said. I am a herald, not a judge.
If Hitler and Stalin made deathbed confessions of
their sins and begged God to forgive them, and did
not obey the Gospel, then I am not going to assume
a mere " I am sorry " is of any merit.
They procrastinated too long and did not accept the
offer God made of forgiveness. They did not obeyApril 2010 THE GOSPEL UNASHAMED 3
the Gospel and I believe I am correct in my belief
they will suffer the vengeance of eternal fire.
2 Thessalonians 1:5-10: “5 Which is a manifest
token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may
be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which
ye also suffer: 6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with
God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble
you; 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us,
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven
with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking
vengeance on them that know not God, and that
obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9
Who shall be punished with everlasting
destruction from the presence of the Lord, and
from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall
come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired
in all them that believe (because our testimony
among you was believed) in that day.”
Believing the words of Jesus and His spokesmen in
the Word, I do not assume that anyone is saved
without being born again of the water and the Spirit.
If one is not buried with Christ in baptism, they
cannot be raised to newness of life.
Romans 6:1-8: “1 What shall we say then? Shall we
continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God
forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any
longer therein? 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as
were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into
his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him
by baptism into death: that like as Christ was
raised up from the dead by the glory of the
Father, even so we also should walk in newness
of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in
the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the
likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that
our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin
might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not
serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8
Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we
shall also live with him:”
If this seems too narrow for you, I remind you that
Jesus said there would be few who find the narrow
road and the narrow gate to eternal life. The road to
destruction, by the mouth of our Lord, is broad. That
is because so many travel it.
I trust that this helps you realize why I do not believe
Heaven is universal. It is against the wisdom of God,
the Holiness of God, and the Word of Christ Himself.
I cannot face the judge of all if I preached what
people wanted to hear. Paul said "For do I now
persuade men or God? or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant
of Christ." Galatians 1:10
Hopefully you will see where I am coming from in
this matter. My opinion is worthless. Let God be true
and every man a liar. It is my conviction that I love
my fellow man and believers more if I tell them what
the Lord has taught than the man who makes
everyone feel safe when they are not.
A doctor that knows the cure for a deadly disease
and will not tell it but only gives a placebo is an evil
man. A preacher, who knows what the Lord says
and does not preach the message that can save, is
an evil man. The best thing you can do for your
children is to teach them to love truth and obey it
and accept God's Wisdom as King of the universe.
I have not told you my ideas. I have spoken what
God has said and Jesus tells us that His words will
judge us in the last days. You can always count on
me to tell you what Jesus and the apostles have
said, rather than my subjective thinking
