what if

hell was not made for man
but to hell many have gone and will
man's flesh temporary
a man's soul eternal
with only two places for a soul to go
only one narrow road
where a small gate awaits

there are those who say
God is too loving too good
to damn a single sinner
but it is man
always man
that chooses his path
the way each man wills to go

sin will be paid for one way or the other
for the wages of sin is always death
there is simply no room no place
for the rebellious Godlessness unbelieving ones
in the presence of the holy God

there is no tolerance
no more grace
for those who refused denied rejected
 a great love and adoption

so freely and often offered

and so comes the second death

hell was not made for man
but many have gone and will
even if God so loving so good
made a third world for those to go

what if
God created a third world
for all who in life rejected salvation
the true and only one and way
what if
God had created a third world
for the fallen unbelieving
what if
another world made

where there is eternal separation
a world made for the unrepentant man

without his divine presence protection and light

that world too
would be
just another hell

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
-Psalm 9:17-

“There are only two kinds of people in the end:
those who say to God, “thy will be done,”
and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.”
-C.S. Lewis-
