What About Hell?
“One God, one law, one element; and one far off, divine event to which the whole Creation moves.” —Inscription in the Dome of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C.
The great unknown
Many people are uncomfortable with the thought of dying. Why? Because we are afraid to die. The Bible speaks of those who are being held in bondage by fear of death (Hebrews 2:15). Death is stepping into the great unknown, and it’s the fear of the unknown that upsets most people. In the oldest book of the Bible, Job describes the death of the wicked:
“The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine. The light is dark in his tent, and his lamp beside him is put out. The steps of his strength are shortened. . .He is uprooted from the shelter of his tent, and they parade him before the king of terrors” (Job 18:5–7, 14).
A very real place
Hell is not merely a figure of speech, but a very real place! The Bible describes Hell as being a real place that is not an eternal party, but rather a place of eternal torment and darkness.
Jesus, who told us of Heaven with all its glories, also told us of Hell with all its horrors. In fact, Jesus spoke more about Hell than all the other preachers of the Bible put together! Of the 1870 verses recording words which Jesus spoke, 13% are about judgment and Hell. More than half of the 40 parables that Jesus told related to God’s eternal judgment of sinners.
