We cannot afford to ignore hell. Christians must care about suffering, but especially eternal suffering. And it must mobilize to go and to send.
Earlier in January, Pastor John traveled to Louisville to speak at the annual CROSS conference, a gathering of 7,500 young men and women who are seeking clarity on their call to international missions and life evangelism. One of the sessions was a panel discussion hosted by David Platt, with Pastor John, international evangelist Mack Stiles, and pastors Thabiti Anyabwile and Kevin DeYoung. In that discussion was a very important clip I wanted to share here. It is about one very unpopular truth that drives gospel sacrifice — namely, the doctrine — the reality — of the eternal judgment of sinners under the just and holy wrath of God. As uncomfortable as this doctrine is, we cannot ignore it. Our friend Mack Stiles picks up the conversation.
