Lesson 10: The Fires of Hell (Isaiah 66, Mark 9, Revelation 20)
Do people seriously think about hell? How many books and movies have characters who say, "See you in hell?" If the speaker truly believed hell was an eternally burning fire, that statement would not be made casually. If it is eternal torture serious people would make it a very high priority to avoid hell. Instead, most people (including me) think in terms of missing out on heaven. And what does hell say about God? The gospel story is that God is more than fair to humans when He gave up Himself to allow us to choose eternal life. Can "more than fair," also be more than unjust? Seventy-years of sin deserves eternal torture? Let's dive into our Bibles and see what it has to say about hell!
