Confessions of a screwed up middle ages man: Negative consequences

Over the past several decades as we hear from the pulpit and dais of most churches. The statement that there is a negative consequence if you do not accept Christ as your Savior and live a holy life, is non-existent.
I actually believe that this omission is a form of lying. It has caused the inclusion to the point of allowing those that live in sin to be able to stand in the pulpit and upon the dais, thus killing this body of Christ they stand before once it occurs. For they only reach this point with the approval of all within this group.
The trail to heaven is narrow and filled with many obstacles. The road to negative consequences is wide and well-traveled.
Still people contact me and say: “hey you need to be more positive in your message.”
I hear this. However, I must ask this. If people do not understand that Hades is real, that the pit of fire will hold those that are told without question that live in sin. Why not let them know this?
Is not letting them know that their actions have negative consequences the most pure type of love?
Do I desire any to go to hell? NO!!!!!
Yet if all I say is God loves you. What have they learned?
They will live their lives as they see fit and how they wish to live. They will even rise up to be leaders in the church and say that God loves us all as we are.
I say this:
Yes God loves all of humanity, and He desires all to come to heaven. But He only gives one path to Him. It is through His Son Jesus Christ and the abandonment of living in sin. You cannot say Christ is my Savior and still live in sin. This is made clear within the Bible. It is made clear you can never get into heaven or enter into the eternal life in His service if you live entirely in sin.
I say this out of love. For I desire that which Jesus Christ desires, that all should make it into Heaven. Yet both and I Christ are realistic and know that most will not make. That most will enter into the Pity of Fire beside Satan Himself, and they will know eternal sorrow. For these are the negative consequences to living a life in sin.
This is what happens when you spare the rod. Without fearing negative consequences they become spoiled, selfish and self-serving. This is why knowing and understanding the Bible is so essential. If they do not know what is the correct way they should strive to live. How can they know what will lead to the ultimate of negative consequences.
