Hell, Not Heaven, Is Our Default Destination

Most people assume that as long as they don’t mess things up in their time here on earth, they’ll go to heaven when they die. But Scripture says the opposite. God created us for heaven, but the rebellion of the human race, in which we are all participating, has destined us for hell.Hell, not heaven, is our default destination.Notice the breadth of who is described as going to hell in Revelation 21:8: “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death” (ESV).Included in that list are the ones you’d expect: murderers, sorcerers, etc. The “really bad” guys. But it also includes a lot of people who could be found in the church, like:The cowardly – those who would never stand for Jesus in front of their friendsThe faithless – those who went to church but never really trusted God enough to obey him with their relationships or their moneyIdolaters – those who wouldn’t put God first in their livesLiars -those who came to church but whose submission to God was not sincere
