Do You Believe in Hell?

“If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched—where ‘Their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’”

Mark 9:43-44

No matter what people say about Hell, Hell is still there.

May I ask you some questions? Listen to me. If there is no Hell, is not this book a bundle of blunders because it teaches us about Heaven and Hell? Now if you don’t believe what it says, why do you read it? Why do you say that you believe it? Now if there is no Hell, secondly, is not Jesus Christ a deceiver? Do you know who the greatest hell-fire preacher was in the Bible? Had more to say about Hell than any other subject? It was Jesus! People say, “O, I wish you were more loving like Jesus.” Consider the words of the loving Christ in Mark 9:43-44.

Never ridicule a preacher for being a hell-fire preacher because if you do, you’re speaking evil of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • In what ways might you have neglected the reality of Hell?
  • If we do not take Hell seriously, what implications does this have for the way we live individually and with others?
