When I Get To Hell I’m Going to Party With My Friends!
Warnings of hell sometimes bring flippant responses from people who think hell will be one big party. This dangerous idea flies in the face of Biblical teaching on hell. Let’s look at three things the Bible has to say about what hell will be like:
- It is a place of fire. Hell consists of unquenchable fire, brimstone, and darkness.
- It is a place of despair. Jesus described hell as a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.
- It is a place of punishment. In hell, the devil, his angels, and all whose names are not written in the Book of Life will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Will hell be a party? Absolutely not. It will be a place of fire and torment, designed to punish those who have rejected God.
