‘Little children not too little to go to hell’
C. Matthew McMahon, PhD, ThD, above, is an American Calvinist Reformed theologian – and he has just authored a disgusting, crudely-illustrated book for kids – The Cage – that warns of the reality of hell.
In this “A Puritan’s [Twisted] Mind” video, the deranged preacher claims that:
Little children are not too little to go to hell.
Little children ought to learn all the teachings Jesus taught about in the Bible. 1/6th of everything Jesus taught about was on judgment and hell. That is a huge amount of teaching on the subject! But how do we teach our children such a hard biblical idea appropriately?
In this tastefully illustrated work that is completely in rhyme, the Bible’s teaching about hell is outlined in a very easy to understand manner.
Tastefully illustrated? Seriously?
It is aimed at children 5 to 9 years old, but can certainly be read by any age. It concerns a young boy who we find is trapped in a cage called “Big Sin” and can’t escape on his own. The cage is suspended by a chain that is rusting and could break at any moment.
What will our young friend do? What is he thinking about as he stands there locked away? He sees others in cages as well, some who don’t escape, and some who jump to safety as their prisons doors are opened by a mysterious key. Will our young friend get out? How will he escape THE CAGE?
Heman Mehta, the Friendly Atheist, was as outraged by this foul addition to hellfire “literature” as I was. He describes it as “sick and depraved”.
In a “Note to Parents” in the back of the book, McMahon writes:
Some parents may be thinking that this kind of exhortation to children will give little ones horrible nightmares … It would be better for them to have nightmares now while you teach them about the realities of hell … than to wind up in the reality of the nightmare that is hell. To the Christian parent of young children, I plead with you to… teach your children about hell and the power of God’s wrath. Teach them that Christ is their only hope… Teach them that they are locked in a spiritual cage and that it dangles over the fires of hell.
