Thinking about "hell" on a Sunday night in mid-Michigan
January 08, 2017
Have you ever given much thought to what hell is like. I'm not talking about getting caught in a freezing rain storm while going north on Michigan's I-75. And, I'm not talking about the comment from Frank Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond about how hell has a dry heat.
I'm talking about the real hell mentioned in the Holy Bible, like some people go to heaven and some go to hell. What's it like to move into the devil's neighborhood?
Thumbing through the Bible, I found this verse in the book of Isaiah. Chapter 66, verse 24 says:
And they will go out and look upon the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.
What do you think? Is hell real? How do you get there? Know anybody who might have already made the trip there?
I may have a family member there. I hope not. Did he understand the consequences of rejecting Jesus Christ? I'm not sure. Did he ever reverse his course and accept Jesus as his savior. There's no evidence of that.
Thinking about the worms and the fire, I pick heaven. It gives me hope. It's a hope that everybody can grab onto.
