Some say if you look close enough, you can find good in everything. If there is some good in everything, there must be some good in hell. Some people dislike certain spiritual things, and may be happy to learn that they will be absent in hell. This should ease their minds a little while they wait.
NO MORE PREACHING. In hell, there will be no long, irritating sermons. Preaching makes hell-bound people nervous. At every assembly, the preacher seems to be preaching right at them. All reproving, rebuking, and exhorting (2 Tim. 4:1-5) will be over in hell. There may be plenty of preachers there—the wrong kind—but they will not preach. There are no sermons in hell.
NO MORE CHURCH WORKERS. There will be no church workers in hell—you know, those people who bothered you with cards, letters, religious material, phone calls, and visits. They’ve “plagued” the world ever since the first century when they went everywhere “bothering” people (Acts 8:4). You told them you would visit “sometime” and maybe become a Christian “someday.” You will not have to get up out of your seat and open the door for them anymore in hell. They will be gone “somewhere else” for good.
NO INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR LIFESTYLE. In hell no one will tell you how to live your life. No one will mention “sin.” There will be no more calls to holiness by those “do-gooders” who thought they were better than you. You were right about being just as good as those hypocrites, too, by the way. You might notice they are there, too.
NO MORE INVITATIONS. There will be no more invitations to obey the Gospel and get your life right with God. Remember how you hated those invitations? Talk about pressure! It was hard, but you resisted every one of them. There were family appeals, especially from your wife or husband who never gave up. They even prayed for you at the church building, but you did not yield.
If you doubt you want these benefits, why not make some preparation to go to the other place. To be saved from sin one must believe in Jesus (Jn. 3:16), repent of sins (Lk. 13:3), confess Christ (Rm. 10:9,10), and be baptized for remission of sins (Acts 2:38).–adapted from Roger Jackson
