    1 in 5 People In Your Church Probably Don’t Believe in Hell!

    What do you think the percentage is in your church?

    According to a new Pew Research Center study, only 82% of professing evangelicals believe in Hell today (and only 60% of mainliners).

    2019 is a time of biblical illiteracy. We can help people live better lives, defeat depression, be fulfilled in their career, and get in community.

    But at some point, discipleship also includes some meat.

    Or even a little milk.

    Like… is Hell real or not?

    What would the people in your church say?

    Hell isn’t all that popular today. (When was the last time you did a sermon on Hell? Or even mentioned it?)

    But one of the reasons most of us answered the call to ministry was to keep people out of… you guessed it… Hell.

    Reminds me of an old Degarmo and Key song called Boycott Hell (I always thought it said “Boy Caught Hell”, but that’s another story).

    Here are the lyrics:

    We've gotta job to do
    We're runnin' out of time to do it
    You've got a gift to use
    Get out in the world and use it
    Bury your foolish pride
    We've gotta unionize
    Boy, don't you think it's time
    To boycott hell?

    Boycott hell

    We've got the strength to win
    Standing arm in arm together
    Forget our differences
    We can change the world forever
    Bury your foolish pride
    We've gotta unionize
    Boy, don't you think it's
    Time to boycott hell?

    Don't let a neighbor go
    Form a holy picket line
    We've gotta let them know
    Don't you think it's time
    To boycott hell

    What do YOU think?
