Hell is a real place. The Bible has many verses speaking of the horrors of hell and the physical as well as emotional (and spiritual) pain that people will experience.
Who goes to hell?
The Bible is clear: Unless a person accepts Jesus and the reconciling work He did for them on the cross, they cannot be saved. And if someone isn’t saved, they cannot spend eternity in God’s presence. Hell is the absence of God’s presence.
Does hell last forever?
In Mark 9:43, Jesus talks about hell, where “the fire never goes out” (NIV; emphasis added by me). In verse 48, Jesus goes on to say hell is where “the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.” (NIV)
Don’t be fooled. Hell is not somewhere with parties and endless pleasures. It is absolute despair, frustration, pain, hopelessness, torment and separation from God and all things good. And the bible is clear that hell is indeed forever. There is no escaping hell; there is no end.
Don’t make the wrong choice. No matter what you’ve done; no matter how many perversions you’ve imagined, no matter how many drugs you’ve taken, no matter how many crimes you’ve committed, no matter how many times you’ve cursed God, Jesus is welcoming you with open arms. He is not mad at you; He wants to call you home and spend all eternity with you.
How can you escape hell?
Easy. All you have to “do” is accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Don’t know how? Read our article here: How to get saved, according to the Bible
