“What kind of a God would send people to hell?” “If that’s the kind of God you worship; I want nothing to do with your God.”

Dr. Chris Gnanakan

Statements like these are understandable, unless you understand the true nature of God.


In this podcast, my guest Dr. Chris Gnanakan responds to these kinds of questions.  Chris shares about:

The DEPTH of God’s LOVE.The WIDTH of God’s MERCY.The HEIGHT of God’s JUSTICE.


Here are some of the Scriptures that Chris cites in this podcast:


The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9 ESV) Does this verse say that God wants to send people to hell?


In 1 Timothy 2:4 we read that God, “…desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (ESV) Does this verse say that God wants to send people to hell?


Please remember that the wonderful promise of the Bible is this: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23 ESV)
