10 Things to Know About Hell

1. God did not spare angels when they sinned but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness (2 Peter 2:4)

2. Hell is the place of the future punishment call “Gehenna” or “Gehenna of fire”. This was originally the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem, where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast out and burned; a fit symbol of the wicked and their future destruction. (Thayer’s Dictionary)

3. Jesus says, using hyperbole, its better to lose body parts that cause one to sin than to be cast into hell (Mark 9:43-47)

4. We are to fear Him who can cast both body and soul into hell (Matthew 10:28)

5. There are ways we treat others that will sentence us to hell (Matthew 5:22)

6. A great number of people will be sent to hell for sins (Daniel 12:2-3, Matthew 25:46, Revelation 20:14-15)

7. Hell was originally designed for Satan and his angels (Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20:10)

8. Man will have only one earth-life and after that the judgment (Hebrews 9:27)

9. Hell is eternal and irreversible (Revelation 14:11, Revelation 20:14-15)

10. Hell is conscious torment (Matthew 13:50, Mark 9:48, Revelation 14:10)


A loving God would not send people to a horrible hell?

Response: God is just (Romans 2:11)

God has provided the way of salvation to all (John 3:16,17; 2 Corinthians 5:14,15; 1 Timothy 2:6; 4:10; Titus 2:11) | Even those who haven’t heard of Christ are accountable for God’s revelation in nature (Romans 1:20) | God seeks those who seek Him (Luke 19:10) | Therefore God doesn’t send people to hell, they choose it (Romans 1:18,21,25)
