Torture or Separation?

Description

Christ came to save us from hell. He came to forgive us of our sins and make us right with God.

“The rich man also died and was buried. In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side” (Luke 16:22–23, NIV).
No one in the Bible spoke more about hell than Jesus. He painted a pretty complete picture of what hell is like. In some cases He spoke literally, and in others He spoke more figuratively. Christ spoke about the suffering of hell. It means being permanently separated from God. It is going to be a place of totally unrestrained evil, where the devil and his demons reside along with all those who have rejected Christ. That’s not a pretty picture and not a place you want to be.

Although nothing in Scripture says that hell is an eternal torture chamber, it does say it will be unbearably hot. It will be eternal suffering and a clear awareness of what you have missed out on. If you go there, you will realize that your whole life was a waste because you never responded to Christ. There will be the realization that you are permanently separated from God. That will create great agony.

Whatever it may be, you sure don’t want to wind up there. And you don’t have to. The good news that follows this bad news is that Christ came to save us from hell. He came to forgive us of our sins and make us right with God. Have you claimed this good news in faith? Do so today. Hell is a place you want to be saved from.
