Seven False Ideas About Hell
False Idea #1
“There is not literal fire in hell.”
Jesus said that there is literal fire in hell. “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” (Holy Bible, Mark 9:43, KJV).
“The rich man also died, and was buried; And IN HELL he lift up his eyes, being in torments, …I AM TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME” (Holy Bible, Luke 16:22-24, KJV).
You, too, will experience that flame if you do not repent and get saved.
False Idea #2
“Hell is only temporary.”
Jesus described hell as a place of everlasting—not temporary, punishment. “Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE” (Holy Bible, Matthew 25:41, KJV).
Abraham told the rich man in hell that there was no way for him to ever get out and go to heaven. “Between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; NEITHER CAN THEY PASS TO US, THAT WOULD COME FROM THENCE” (Holy Bible, Luke 16:26, KJV).
You, too, will spend eternity in hell, unless you repent and get saved.
False Idea #3
“Hell is a place to party.”
There are no parties with drinking and dancing and immorality in hell: no pleasure—just pain; and no water—just thirst. The rich man in hell “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” (Holy Bible, Luke 16:24 KJV).
Unless you repent of your sin and get saved, you will thirst for ever in hell.
False Idea #4
“I would not feel at home in heaven,
because my friends are in hell.”
If you have friends or relatives in hell, they are pleading that someone be sent to you to tell you how to be saved.
The rich man in hell said, “I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest SEND HIM TO MY FATHER’S HOUSE: For I have five brethren; THAT HE MAY TESTIFY UNTO THEM, LEST THEY ALSO COME INTO THIS PLACE OF TORMENT” (Holy Bible, Luke 16:27, 28 KJV).
If you have friends and relatives in hell, they are begging that someone be sent to warn you before it is too late—this is your warning to repent and get saved.
False Idea #5
“God is too loving
to send people to hell.”
God does love you, and has made a way for you to be saved, but if you love your sin so much that you will not repent and turn to Him, then please notice that YOU are ALREADY CONDEMNED at this very moment. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (Holy Bible, John 3:16, 18, KJV).
You will never be able to blame God if you end up in hell. God loved you enough to get this information to you. Will you now repent and get saved?
False Idea #6
“If your good works outweigh your bad, then you will not go to hell.”
“There is NONE GOOD BUT ONE, that is, GOD” (Holy Bible, Matthew 19:17, KJV). “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, ye that work iniquity.” (Holy Bible, Matthew 7:22, 23, KJV). “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE” (Holy Bible, Revelation 20:15, KJV).
False Idea #7
“The devil torments people in hell.”
The devil will not torment anyone in hell, because it was a place created to torment him. “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL and his angels” (Holy Bible, Matthew 25:41, KJV). “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” (Holy Bible, Revelation 20:10, KJV).
You will share in the same place of torment as the devil, unless you repent and get saved.
The Decision Is Now In Your Hands
“Therefore HELL HATH ENLARGED HERSELF, and opened her mouth without measure…” (Holy Bible, Isaiah 5:14, KJV). Will you or one of your friends or family be the next one cast into hell?
To be SAVED, you must CALL upon the LORD JESUS from your HEART. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE in thine HEART that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED.” “For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the LORD shall be SAVED (Holy Bible, Romans 10:9,13, KJV).
After we ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save us, then God instructs us to openly confess Him by getting baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When we go under the water, it pictures death to the old life of sin. When we come up out of the water, it pictures a new life serving the Lord.
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
