Cornerstone Church Halloween Fun: ‘House of Hell’

October 29, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Evangelical Christians across the country are getting into the spirit of Halloween, offering their own fright-night festivities to battle against the temptations of Satan and scare parishioners with the everlasting fires of hell. First we had Pastor Marc Grizzard of the Amazing Grace Baptist Church in North Carolina, planning a good old fashioned Halloween book burning of all of Satan’s evil works and even Satan’s ungodly music, including non-King James Bibles.

Now, the fire and brimstone preacher, Pastor Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tennessee is staging a special Halloween Illustrated Sermon called, “House of Hell,” with lots of hell-fire and terror. Pastor Davis promises his All Hallows’ Eve sermon “will take you literally into the bowels of Hell. Oh my!

The church website warns of eternal torment for all of us sinners harboring dirty secrets in our homes:

“What would I find if I came to your home – Drugs? Pornography? Alcohol? Abuse? People are living in Hell-on-Earth situations, not realizing that their lives will guide them to the place of Eternal Torment. On October 31 and November 1, we will fully illustrate the consequences of hosting secret sins in your home.”

Pastor Davis promises special effects to fully ilistrate the fires of hell, for those of us that need a reminder.

“This will be one of the largest illustrated sermons Cornerstone has ever produced. A full set, dozens of actors, special effects and other surprises await you! Don’t miss out on what God wants to do in your life.”

Pastor Maury Davis is the Senior Pastor at Cornerstone Church, an Assemblies of God place of worship. According to the church website, Davis was saved while he was in prison serving a sentence for first-degree murder, a crime he committed when he was 18-years-old. After serving eight and one-half years in the Texas Department of Corrections, Davis “found his Savior in Jesus Christ.”

    You have a real cute little website here. Its so funny to make fun of someone who has made something of themselves isn’t it? Why don’t you make fun of Obama? Now theres a joke, you could talk about how he come up from nothing to become president and ruin everything we hold dear in America, freedom, right to free speech, taxation without representation, right to bear arms… But i forgot the only people you have the guts to make fun of are christians, right? Because they won’t fight back. Your a bunch of gutless cowards and a waste of space!

    How very hypocritical for Rev Davis to suggest that people will be tortured by God for secretly abusing children when his church’s Hell House openly does so!

    Today, there are millions of people who, as children, were emotionally conditioned to fear that God intends to torture billions of people, to subject them to the worst possible pain, relentlessly. The resulting effect is that, even when they become adults who would ordinarily have the ability to discern between real threats and fake ones, cannot rid themselves of this fear of Hell, and thus, come under the control of the Evangelical leadership who promises they can be spared if only they’ll believe this or do that.

    If God has even an ounce of love or compassion, then he would be incapable of torturing anyone for any length of time, far less, billions of people for an eternity.

    I’ve actually written an entire book on this topic–“Hell? No! Why You Can Be Certain There’s No Such Place As Hell,” (for anyone interested, you can get a free Ecopy of my book at my website:, but if I may, let me share a couple of the many points I make in it to explain why.

    One of the arguments one hears frequently from Evangelicals to justify the idea that God is some sort of Cosmic Nazi is that he can’t help it because his just and holy nature forces him to punish all sin.

    Even if this were so, and if by “justice” we mean “an eye for an eye,” then the worst God could do is make people suffer the same amount that they caused others, meaning there could exist a Purgatory…but not an eternal Hell. No one, not even the most evil human ever, committed an INFINITE amount of harm.
    Also, if God had any love at all, his goodness would have prevented him from creating humanity in the first place, foreseeing the outcome of so much suffering!
    But let’s be real. Jesus’ message was clearly against the idea of revenge, making people suffer for what they did. His view was that getting “justice” only led to a constant cycle of one vendetta after another. Instead, his message was to forgive others, because that’s what God does for anyone who owns up to their mistakes.
