If you’ve been watching the news lately, you will have seen the story of how 33 chilean miners were trapped underground for 69 days. Many are only just been rescued now.
How horrible it must be, all that way underground. But at least they had each other. At least they had hope.
The story reminds me of what the Bible says about Eternal hell. But there’s no escape from that dreaded place. No hope. Ever.
The Bible describes hell as not only a place of fire, but utter darkness, too. New Testament describes hell as a bottomless pit (abyss) (Revelation 20:3), a lake (Revelation 20:14), darkness (Matthew 25:30), death (Revelation 2:11), destruction (2 Thessalonians 1:9), everlasting torment (Revelation 20:10), a place of wailing and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 25:30), and a place of gradated punishment (Matthew 11:20-24; Luke 12:47-48; Revelation 20:12-13) [references from Is hell literally a place of fire and brimstone?].
The only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, who came to Earth to save us from our sin.
If you’re not Saved by Jesus yet, why not find out more?
