In our How to Respond series, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew addresses a question about how God can be loving and still condemn people to hell for eternity. First we must remember that God is just, and when we sin we bring upon ourselves God's just judgment. In His mercy, God desires the salvation of all through His Son. We must also remember that God has demonstrated His love for sinners in sending His Son to suffer the punishment of our sin in our place. When sinners choose to disobey God and reject His grace in Christ they bring the righteous judgment of hell upon themselves. God's love is clearly seen in Christ!
