God will not be mocked! Do you remember Lot’s wife? God told her to not look back; but she did. What happened to her? She was tuned into a pillar of salt. God is narrow-minded! God says what he means and means what he says! Ours is not to question why; ours is to do or die.
God has placed barriers on our roadway to hell. One such barrier is gospel preaching. You and I must ignore the barrier of gospel preaching in order to go to hell; MANY do. “Oh, do not let the word depart…”
