Hell. Is it real, or is it imaginary? Is it a place where one might spend eternity or is it some made up place to try to scare us into being good? Unfortunately for some, it is a very real place.
I was watching television and heard a wife said of her husband that he was going to hell. He laughed and agreed with her. It broke my heart. He obviously doesn’t have any idea what he’s talking about or he certainly wouldn’t be laughing.
According to the Bible, hell is a horrific place itself, but I think the realization that one is forever separated from God will be even worse. Even if you are not a believer there is evidence of God all around you. But in the isolation of hell, there will be nothing reminiscent of Him.
Some folks are of the opinion that there is some sort of middle place. And there are those who are convinced that they will have another opportunity to come back as something or someone else. That’s not God’s design. When your days are over, you will either be with Him, or without Him. No place inbetween.
Love Heart, the only way to avoid hell is through Jesus. Do you understand how this works? Really it’s quite simple. The payment for sin is death. To pay the penalty, Jesus took our place – He died so we don’t have to. He paid the price. Now it’s up to us to accept His payment.
Hell is not a joking matter. It’s a real place. Don’t go there! You don’t have to. Gwen~
