Common misunderstandingsĀ 

  
“I don’t believe God would send anyone to hell. Doesn’t the Bible say God is love?”
Yes, 1 John 4:8 says God is love. However, God is also;
Just (Deuteronomy 32:4)

All powerful (Psalm 33:9; Isaiah 40:28; 46:10)

Omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12; Jeremiah 23:24)

All knowing (Romans 16:27; Hebrews 4:13; 1 John 3:20)

Sovereign (Romans 16:27; Hebrews 4:13; 1 John 3:20)
And much, much more…
To limit God to just one quality and ignore the rest of His attributes, is idolatry. By elevating God’s love and ignoring His other qualities, you are forming a god of your own image to fit your own needs. You are picking and choosing which qualities of God you like and discarding the ones you do not. You have made up in your mind a god that does not exist. A god that does not convict you of your sin. A god that allows you to live however you want without any guilt. 
So yes, God is love, but He is much, much

more than just that. He is a righteous, holy, perfect, all knowing, infinitely powerful, all wise judge. And because He is a good judge, and not corrupt, He will not allow evil to go unpunished. But evil is not just murder, rape, robbery, ect…It is lying, lusting, taking the Lords name in vain, stealing… So if you haven’t already, repent of your sins and put your faith in Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins.
