One of my “friends” on Facebook posted the following a few days ago: “My young son asked me what happens after we die. I told him we get buried under a bunch of dirt and worms eat our bodies. I guess I should have told him the truth – that most of us go to Hell and burn eternally – but I didn’t want to upset him.” It saddened me to see the levity of Hell. Several people “liked” this post. One commented, “lol.” Another said, “That’s funny … There’s an app for that!”
I could not remain silent. I commented, “Tell him about Jesus. He died so that we might live eternally in His presence. We simply need to trust him… Read about it in John 3:1-21.”
Let’s be straightforward and honest with our children regarding the terrors of hell and the wonderful mercy of Jesus.
