Good day to you in Christ, Nidhin!
Your friends comment reminds me of things some students used to say when I was in high school back in the early Jurassic period (which is to say the early 80’s). Believe me when I tell you it was tough finding parking spots for a triceratops! Some of them had this idea that they had apparently picked up from the hard rock scene, and that was that hell was going to be one non stop hedonistic party for all eternity. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Now to be quite serious about the matter. Our Lord Jesus has made it very clear that eternal condemnation is the worst possible thing that can happen to any being. Just some examples he gave:
Mat 13:42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire . There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 22:13 Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness ; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mark 9:44, 46, 48 where Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.
On the other hand, those who repent and believe in Christ for the salvation of their souls will know an experience in eternity so wonderful that it’s not ever been conceived of by the human imagination :
1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” – the things God has prepared for those who love him–
A couple of things Jesus said about the kingdom of heaven:
“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it."
Meaning it’s worth giving up every single thing of earthly value to a person to obtain it.
The Father isn’t “uncool”, to use a term people from my youth might use. Not in the least. From my own experience when I first committed my life to Christ, and the total opposite of what I had actually expected, when I woke up the next morning one of the many mind blowing wonderful things I was aware of was that He is the most loving, most understanding, most compassionate, kindest Being in existence. It was something I didn’t just know, I could feel it. He is real.
Something to reflect on. Our Lord and Savior created the entire universe, as you know. All of it in its literally inconceivable complexity and massiveness and…He’s not arrogant.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
That’s the Creator of the universe! Gentle and lowly in heart. He knew every single human being that would ever exist before the first was even made. That includes your friend. Hell is so horrible a fate, so unimaginably agonizing, to be separated eternally from the One Who loves us SO much that He was willing to pay the penalty of our sins for us to make a way out of it for us and back to the Father. I like this quote from famous Christian author C.S. Lewis from his book Perelandra:
“When He died in the Wounded World He died not for men, but for each man. If each man had been the only man made, He would have done no less.”
I’m concerned about that statement from your friend,
I suppose I’m concerned about any potential underlying message he may have implied.
He needs to know that His creator knows him intimately and longs for him to believe in Jesus and come to know Him. Even though he can’t feel it, it’s for certain.
I hope this is helpful to you, friend. If others wish to correct me on anything I’ve said here please do! It is humbly welcomed.
In His love.
