More than any other teaching in the Bible, hell seems to be the most difficult to accept. Many think the whole idea is ludicrous. They mock it with images of a mischievous horned devil who may be nasty but is ultimately harmless. Others are uncomfortable with, even embarrassed by—the thought that a loving God could sentence someone to eternal suffering.
So many false notions of hell cloud our thinking. It's time to dig into Scripture to separate fact from fiction. Erwin Lutzer compares the teachings of several religions against the truth of Scripture. His detailed look at the realities of hell paints a chilling picture of the fate awaiting thsoe who reject Christ.
Ignoring hell will not make it go away. Coming to grips with it will give you a renewed appreciation for your salvation and a deeper desire to lead others to the Savior.
