Feel Sad For The Unsaved

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by God is Love, May 12, 2014.

  1. I was just thinking about my family and I love them all and notice so many good qualities in them and see the suffering they deal with in their lives but they aren't Christians and it makes me so sad to think that they might have to go to hell because of this. I feel like they don't understand the severity of denying God and idk how to make it clear to them, they would just think i'm a nutter if I told them the Gospel. Does anyone else feel this way? Is their a way not to be sad? I need hope, I don't feel like I can change their ways, I have enough trouble changing myself. This is really stressing me out.

  2. I am at peace when I grasp that God is 100% just.

    100% just = Your unsaved family only goes to hell if there is absolutely no hope of them accepting Jesus. (repenting from sin / following Psalm 51:17).

    100% just = their salvation is not on your head. God is responsible for sentencing them to hell so God is ultimately responsible for reaching out to them / trying all He can.

    100% just = God is 100% impartial.

    We need to focus on giving God something He can use. Since you are related, God would definitely like to use you in their salvation. Preach scripture to them if they don't know it. Remind them of scripture if they know it. Heb 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

    We should always try be on our best Christian behaviour, but if the word of God is not being sown...

  3. Perhaps they don't believe in hell like me so then it won't matter. If they have good qualities then they appear to be doing quite fine without God so why not leave them be?
  4. TubbyTubby - not believing in Hell is just ignorance, nothing more.

    Somewhere along the line the notion that "you can believe whatever you want and it doesn't matter" became
    a popular notion. It is a stupid notion.

    Each person is respondible for what they believe, especially since most beliefs are not held honestly or ever challenged.
  5. Most people are told what to believe, they don't often come up with something new do they?

    Hell is one of those concepts dreamt up by man, choosing to not believe in something that has no proof is the polar opposite of 'stupid'.
  6. Just because you are "told what to believe" does not mean that you must accept it.
    Most of what I have been told since I was a child (and til this day) has been pure lies.

    As a free willed living being it is your responsibility to sort out the garbage and test the truth.
    Doing anything less is just laziness.

    Hell is a place, not a concept. Do a little research on demonology and you'll find plenty of evidence for Hell.
    I've met the natives there, and they aren't friendly.
  7. Ah, i know how you feel... im especially close to my mom..but like you said..its hard enough getting my foot through heaven's door.... if I get distracted ( which I have been : s) I might join em....,

    I think the best way to deal with those feelings is to pray for them... atleast when you pray...you still feel like there's hope for them. And there is..there's always hope till the very end. :) hope that helped.
  8. Tubby, you are going to live here during the tribulation if you continue with your apathy in dealing with the reality of your sin and its consequences.

    Let's deal with this future event now. Lets say the rapture takes place and many are gone. Lets say some guy comes along with all the answers and solutions to the worlds problems. Lets say this guy does miracles that all can scrutinize and find proof for. Lets say this guy makes a claim to be the 'messiah' and demands all accept his mark and reject Jesus and their respective religions...or else they won't be able to eat or buy anything with a day coming when they will get their head chopped off with a guillotine. Knowing also that this guy teaches the opposite to what Jesus taught, will you accept his mark?

    "I Wanted To Change The World"

    When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

    I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

    When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

    Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
