The Blaze: Dear Christians, there’s nothing ‘compassionate’ about helping people get to Hell

The Blaze: Dear Christians, there’s nothing ‘compassionate’ about helping people get to Hell

by Matt Walsh

First, the habitual and unrepentant sinner whose sin is being so politely and nicely tolerated. It may be true that this person will feel relieved to be encouraged in his wickedness and told that it’s really very good and natural for him to do whatever it is he wants to do. He may be grateful for such an assurance. For now. But the wickedness he partakes in still destroys him all the same. He is brought closer to eternal damnation all the same. And for us to facilitate this easy and casual descent into the fires of Hell is not compassionate. It’s rather like injecting morphine into a man’s hand so that he no longer feels pain when he places his palm on a hot stove. Not feeling pain is nice, but the problem is that the guy’s hand is still getting burnt to a crisp. Better that he feel the pain and save his hand. Better that the sinner feel the weight of his sin and save his soul.


Matt Walsh tells it like it is. Immorality is immorality and if we tell people otherwise, we are simply leading them towards everlasting torment in the fires of hell.
