Hell Is A “Real Place”

April 23, 2010

Hell is a “real place” we have  Absolute Proof. God’s Inerrant and Holy Infallible Word the Bible proclaims that Hell is a “real place.” Certainly the English word Hell isn’t a translation of several different Hebrew and Greek words—all of which have several distinct meanings of different concepts, one of which is a garbage dump in Jerusalem.

Gehenna:  no longer a place of furnaces and child sacrifice

We Know as Todd Friel (Wretched) and Brainiac (Brainless)  back us up by explaining the full picture of the Absolute Biblical Truth of Hell by stringing together several random and arbitrary Bible verses out of context:

Many evil men have and will escape justice on earth, and in this life. None will escape justice in Hell. Hell is not this life.

What then, is Hell? To answer this question we must look not to the imagination of men but to the Word of God. For, if you have not heard, men are liars. But, God is true and His Word is truth. In His Word God tells us that Hell is (1) a place of (2) eternal (3) conscious (4) punishment for the (5) wicked.

  • Hell is a place. “In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12). See also: Matthew 13:42, 13:50, 22:13 and 25:30
  • Hell is eternal. “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). Just as heaven is eternal, so also hell is eternal. “And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25:46)
  • Those in Hell are conscious. “… The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night” (Rev. 14:11).
  • Hell is punishment. “In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth(Matthew 8:12); “these will go away into eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46). See also: Matthew 13:42, 13:50, 22:13, 25:30
  • Hell is for the wicked. “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41).
  • It is no mystery what Hell is. God’s Word is clear, if only we will accept it. In the end, every man will know exactly what Hell is, no man will dare deny it, for every man will be either one abandoned to Hell or one rescued from Hell. Those abandoned to Hell will know what Hell is and why they are there because…they are there. Those rescued from Hell will know what Hell is because they ought to be there, and because they have believed Him who rescued them from there.

    This is why you must Obey our Pure Doctrines or else!


    Maybe we should not be so concerned with colatoral damage says Greg Koukle

    Greg Koukle, apologists for Stand to Reason Ministries states “‘I don’t believe that Torture is wrong in itself…” Afterall he thinks….it could be simple matter of collateral damage (i.e.  napalm a village and firebomb Desden) Heck they are bad guys, and they are not like us.

    We like words like “collateral damage” too because it avoids less comfortable terms like dismemberment, disembowelment or the death of children being incidental. Again, we don’t have to love our enemies, we just need to keep our way of living from being unchanged.

    Sometimes we can think of collateral damage as being secondary damage, damage therefore that is not primary.  For instance, “your children have died due to collateral damage…but don’t worry, their deaths were secondary to our primary target.” I think as a parent, relative or friend I would feel much better and so should you once they have explained it that way. We need to be clear that good Christians need to be pro-military, and believe that all people in the Middle East are bad guys and if required need to be tortured. This too is one of the few ways that they really can see that we REPRESENT JESUS, or bring them the GOSPEL. If we are soft on enemies, they too may see us as soft, or full of grace, or love, or even mercy. We never want to be perceived as weak and vulnerable.

    Remember, persecute thine enemies, hate them and do bad to them. Do to others before they get you.
