Hell, is that a little extreme?

We don’t take sin seriously because 

we don’t take God seriously.

We have [become so familiar with the] God-belittling spirit of the age that our sins hardly trouble us at all. 
Our sin seems small because we regard God as small. 
And thus the penalty of hell—
eternal conscious suffering under the wrath of God—
always seems like an overreaction on God’s part. 
If we knew God better, we wouldn’t think like that.
