Many people do not believe in a literal place called “hell.” Some will tell you it is a myth. Others will tell you God would not make such a place, and He certainly would not cause people to go there for eternity. There are even denominations of the Christian church who hold these untruths as doctrine. There’s just one little problem with their theories. The Bible completely disagrees. God speaks of hell twice as much as He speaks of heaven. Today I saw a young woman with two bumper stickers on her car. The first read, “Born Again Pagan”. The second, “It’s Your Hell–You Burn In It!” As I prayed for her, I thought to myself, “Actually, if you don’t believe God’s Word, it’s YOUR HELL, and you will burn in it.” While this Scripture is not speaking of hell, it certainly does have a gripping word picture of fire, and it’s aimed squarely at those who don’t believe God’s word.
“Therefore as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 5:24
