The Truth About Hell Is Found In The Bible

I don’t know your idea of eternal punishment; I don’t know your belief or lack of belief in hell, hades, gehenna, or the lake of fire.
What you and I believe is irrelevant!
What the Bible says about it is truth!
There is a book that deals with the subject and the author denies the existence of a hell. He insists that God’s love will “save” every person so that lives, no matter what kind of life they lived.
The author cannot fathom the idea that a loving God would condemn any one to eternal punishment.
But what that author believes is irrelevant!
Jesus told the story of a rich man that died; The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ Luke 16:22-25
Twice the word torment is used; I wish it were not so but suffering seems to be a part of death for those that don’t end up in the presence of God.
Is there hope for those in such a position?
The story continues: between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ Luke 16:26
There is Revelation 20 that seems to be unmistakable in its meaning; and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Rev 20:15
The author of this new book would have you to believe that hell is fictitious, in spite of the Bible mentioning it.
The author goes as far to mention the New Jerusalem, its gates shall not be shut at all by day (Rev 21:25), meaning that salvation is open for everyone and is never closed; that all can walk through those gates and be in the presence of God.
He seems to ignore the fact that the gates are always opened only after the judgment of chapter 20.
The author would want me to tell you his name and the name of his book.
Better yet, I would encourage you to read the Bible!
You probably already have one.
If you are really concerned about someone going to hell, then share with them the message of God’s love through salvation in Jesus!

One thought on “The Truth About Hell Is Found In The Bible

  1. I BELIEVE ! I just finished the book of revelation. In 59 years of life I’ve known two people that I believe choose not God for the last time. Now I realy can’t know it was the last time, can I? Anyway, what people know here, in this life, may be all the heaven they’ll ever know. All the more re3ason to witmess to them of God loving grace.
