Is Hell a Real Place?

Home | Blog – New | Is Hell a Real Place?

A growing number of people don’t think hell exists. However, it’s still a question they wonder privately—or sometimes google.

Google receives the question “is hell real” more than 200 times each day. And that’s just for this specific question. There are thousands of daily queries about hell.

Is hell a real place or did someone make it up? The best resource to check is the Bible. Jesus spoke about hell more than anyone else in the Bible and He did so to warn each of us. “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

The Bible is very clear on this: hell is as real as heaven and you’ll experience one of the two when you die. All of us will live forever because God created us with an eternal soul. The moment we die is the beginning of our eternity. We either live forever in heaven with God or suffer through separation from Him in hell.

You have likely heard the Lord is a “God of love.” This is true because He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins to make it possible for us to spend eternity in heaven with Him. However, He is also a God of justice. Because of His love for us, He can’t allow the corruption, depravity and wickedness of our world to pass without His holy judgment. The Bible says, “They will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:12).

These are significant words and should make you pause for a moment. The good news is the Bible also tells us we don’t have to go to hell. God wants a relationship with us through His Son, Jesus Christ, so we can spend eternity with Him in heaven. Jesus Christ came to destroy sin and death. When we put our faith and trust in Him, the doors of heaven open for us. By Billy Graham

You don’t have to fear hell.

Take time now to be assured of your place in heaven.
