1 John 4:20 Should Terrify The Church

Believers In Hell

Dear religious friends:

The Bible teaches that anyone who “hates his brother” goes to hell (“cannot love God.”)

“Hates his brother” means “hates a fellow believer” in the context of 1 John 4:20.

See BDAG 18 s.v. ἀδελφός 2.a

And based on everything I’ve observed in the Church throughout my life, chances are pretty high, dear religious one, that you hate somebody who goes by the title of “Christian.”

If 1 John 4: 20 were true, and if there were a God that sent people to hell, then as a general rule, the entire Church is hell bound.

1 John 4: 20 
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
