- 100 people die every minute.

Not only do bad people deserve hell, but all good people - because all are sinners!
It is not our sins that send us to hell (i.e., drunkenness, murder, adultery, etc), but just the fact we are sinners, and have not surrendered to Jesus as our Savior!
Hell was only created for the devil and his angels. If somebody goes there, it is because they REJECT God's way out - JESUS!
Nobody should go to hell!
Jesus died to save you from hell.
This is no joke! Jesus spoke more about hell than He did about heaven, because we are so blind and deaf to the facts, and need to be warned over and over that HELL IS JUST AS ETERNAL AS HEAVEN IS!
Take a look for yourself at what the Bible says about hell...
- Jesus spoke of Hell as a literal place, using graphic terms.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.(Matthew 13:40-42)
And if thy hand offends thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm death not, and the fire is not quenched. (Mark 9:43, 44)
- Hell is as literal as Heaven and as eternal as heaven.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:46)
- Hell is a place of punishment designed for Satan and the fallen angels
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into eve.lasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:41, 46)
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)
- Hell will also be inhabited by people who do not accept God's gift of the Savior.
For the wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)
Because of man's sinfulness, he deserves to spend eternity away from the presence of God, in Hell.
- Hell is a horrible place of suffering and everlasting destruction.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:41, 42)
The Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power. (2 Thessalonians 1:9)
- In Hell people are fully conscious and retain all their capacities and desires with no hope for any fulfillment for all eternity.
The rich man also died, and was buried; and in hell he lifts up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. And 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 16:22-24).
The opportunity to spend eternity in heaven because of God's grace is undeserved by men but offered freely by God.
But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23b)
