Is There a Hell?

Does hell really exist? That you may ask.
Do the wicked in fire eternally bask?
Well, how could a God of love conceive
Such a punishment to humans who die and then leave
Their family and friends on this earth to grieve?

The wages of sin is death and not hell.
God promises us resurrection and will dispel
All pagan beliefs that come from bad spirits
From man-made religion, from sin we inherit.
No fire or torment or suffering do we merit.


The answer is simple, the Bible tells us
We were created to live forever because
Our Maker planned that we never die
That we live forever on this Earth to rely,
On Him who loves us and who cannot lie.

However, man wanted to learn for himself
If he could self-govern without God’s help.
So he’s tried all sorts of governments and regimes,
Religions and spiritualism and everything that seems
Right in his own eyes but wrong God deems.

God gave us the freedom to choose, so you see.
Life in the new world with Him we can be.
If we decide to live with Jesus as our head
In the new world as promised, there’ll be no more dread
Nor tears, nor anguish, but happiness instead.

    Hell created for the devil and his angels become ours only by our choice of allegiance to the devil, but by faith I look for new heaven and new earth wherein dwells righteousness ... keep me in your prayers.

    I fear God's justice and pray for mercy. Seems we've been given so much and take too much for granted. God Bless. Vince

    Hi Susan, I myself dont't believe that there is a Hell, but won't we experience a hell everyday? We only have to watch the news and everywhere we could see parts of a hell on earth (e.g. Iraq, Afganistan, etc). Thank you for commenting "Five Aphorisms". Gert

    I see where you stand on the hell issue Susan though I thought the bible did say a hell exists and that all sinners and those who do not accept JC as their savior are doomed to suffer there for all eternity. I admit I haven't really read the bible but have heard something along these lines since I was a little boy.I guess I would wonder do you personally deviate from the bible or choose to focus on other elements within it that ring true for you and discard what you don't agree with? thanks.Yoni

    HI, Susan, I think you ponder alot on the Scriptures. It's hard for me to understand how the Bible says one thing and then people say other things. And even it seems there are contradictions within the Bible itself. The way I see it, the "fires of hell" are symbolic, BUT man WILL have to suffer"hell" for his misdeeds. I would imagine it as mental torture, where you are made to actually FEEL the pain you caused to others! Luv, andrea
