Slanguage

We Still Believe in a Real Hell

We still believe in a literal hell. Hell–a place of everlasting punishment with eternal, burning flame. Although it isn’t fashionable to believe such in our “enlightened” age, we still do.

The Sin of Ecumenicalism

This poor world hardly knows what the real gospel is anymore. I unhesitatingly lay the blame for this at the door of the modern religious world. Weak, shallow, and effeminate in its fight against wrong, false religion has done more to enlarge hell than alcohol or drugs has
