God created people to live with Him. Man chose to disobey God and sin separated people from God. Jesus came and died on the cross to provide a way to erase that sentence of being forever separated from God. The only people who go to hell are those who decided they don’t want Jesus and His sacrifice to apply to them. Hell is forever being separated from God. God allows man to choose to say, “I want nothing to do with You, leave me alone.” 2 Peter 3:9 says that God is “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” God sent His totally innocent Son to pay for our sins. Each person must choose if he will accept this gift from God or reject it. If a person doesn’t want God in their life, then they choose to be eternally separated from Him, which is Hell.
My friend wants me to come with them to visit a palm reader and psychic. She says it is just for fun. What should I do?
You should refuse to go and encourage your friend to do the same. The Bible, God’s Word tells us in Leviticus 19:31 not to go to them and be defiled. In Acts 16:16-19 Paul cast an evil spirit out of a girl who was telling fortunes. The devil is a deceiver and a liar. The spiritual wickedness involved with these practices has caused many people to stray away from following the One True God of the Bible. I would never encourage associating with demoniac powers, just for fun.
