How Do Selfish Actions Unleash Hell On Earth? - GoodLion Theology

In a recent episode, Aaron dove into the concept of "hell on earth"—where the destructive forces of sin, death, and selfishness play out in daily life. This episode is a Q&A that answers a listener's profound question: "How can our actions contribute to or alleviate these hellish conditions?"

🔍 Unpacking the Question

Our daily choices can either build or tear down. Lies, gossip, and manipulation erode trust and foster pain. Selfish, self-serving behavior causes division and leaves behind a legacy of brokenness. Whether it’s our own sin, others’ actions, or the fractured world itself, suffering has deep roots.

🌱 Finding Solutions

We analyze how we can identify suffering's roots and leverage Saint Augustine’s "two daughters of hope" to reclaim joy through Jesus’ transformational mission:

  • Anger: Righteous anger against the world’s injustices.
  • Courage: Courage to challenge injustice, love neighbors, and shine a light into the dark places.

🛤️ The Path Forward

Aaron will guide us through practical steps to escape despair, encouraging us to:

  • Recognize the patterns that create "hell on earth."
  • Walk into Christ’s promise of abundant life through the courageous path of faith.
  • Live out humility and justice, shining light where there is darkness.

Join us as we reclaim hope and find joy in living beyond the despair of the world.
