The Israelite's demonstrated faithless unbelief when they accepted the discouraging report from the ten spies, even though God had already given them the land and had instructed them to go take possession of it. The author of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 11:6, Now without faith it is impossible to please God.

Just as the Sodomites were physically immoral, so the apostates and false teachers are spiritually immoral. The fire and brimstone that rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah is proof that God does and will judge sin. Hebrews 12:9 says that the God of Heaven is a consuming fire. Over and over in Scripture we are warned about the fierce judgment of God upon the wicked.

Hell is one of the doctrines that apostates attempt to do away with. Today, when hell is brought up, it will likely be met with ridicule, after all, only the ignorant could really believe in such a place.

Unbelief and faith cannot coexist, and unbelief will always result in eternal spiritual death.

In today’s study, Dr. Gonzalez discusses the three examples from the past and their awful results.
