The Wicked Who Hate Jesus Christ Go To Hell%22I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish....where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched,%22 Jesus Christ, (Mark 9:44; Luke 13:3).
Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.
What God Says About Hell
HELL is for those who hate Christ, those who are unbelievers, fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, effeminate, abusers of themselves with mankind, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners, – none of them shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Cor. 6:9)
In other words, all people at birth. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Rom. 3:23).
From conception they are sinners. “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psa. 51:5).
They are born that way because of Adam. “For as in Adam all die,” (1 Cor. 15:22).
All Non-Christians Go To Hell
Hell is “…where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.”
To all unbelievers HELL is a myth, a fable, or simply not real. If you are one of them, you are very deceived, and will one day end up in HELL unless you repent of your sin. You are a sinner because you are fallen in Adam. You inherited that at conception (See Psalm 51). After you are born you aggravate that state by sinning yourself. “The wicked are estranged from the womb; They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.” (Psa. 58:3). Adam gets you to hell because his unrighteousness was credited to your account when he sinned by breaking God’s holy Law. You simply make hell worse by your own sin aggravating the situation further.
HELL is a place of utter darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. It is a place where God’s wrath resides forever upon the souls of the impenitent – those who do not acknowledge their sinfulness and wickedness before God, and embrace Jesus Christ as Lord. But when they die, the first breath they take before the throne of the Son of Man will be to call him LORD OF ALL while they bow low before Him (See Daniel 7 and Rev. 6). There, Christ will judge them for the credited sin of Adam, and for every thought, word and deed they ever personally had while they lived a life on earth.
HELL is infinitely more horrible than any painting or imagination can surmise. The presence of God there is what makes hell so bad. It is the place where He executes His infinite judgment on sin and wickedness – God’s presence is what makes hell so horrible for the unsaved.
Such people have no idea that they have a relationship with a holy God, and that relationship of continual sin will be to their utter demise. The Bible is emphatic that there is prepared beforehand eternal torment for sin committed against an infinite God, for an infinite duration on the never dying souls of the wicked.
Consider that every sin you commit makes hell hotter. Every sin you commit is an infinite transgression because it is against God’s infinite and holy Law. He says:
“For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell.” Deuteronomy 32:22
“The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17
“Yet, thou shalt be brought down to hell…” Isaiah 14:15
“How can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Matthew 23:33
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15
Where Did You Think You Would End Up?
In HELL there are no second chances. Judas himself heard all of Christ’s sermons. What good did it do him without exercising faith?
You, reader, while it is still called today, you can escape the punishment of God’s infinite wrath by having a real interest in Jesus Christ.

The Bible on Hell:
Hell is the word used to translate the Hebrew word sheol, signifying the unseen state, in Deut. 32:22; 2 Sam. 22:6; Job 11:8; 26:6; Psa. 9:17; 16:10; 18:5; 55:15; 86:13; 116:3; 139:8; Prov. 5:5; 7:27; 9:18; 15:11, 24; 23:14; 27:20; Isa. 5:14; 14:9, 15; 28:15, 18; 57:9; Ezek. 31:16, 17; 32:21, 27; Amos 9:2; Jonah 2:2; Hab. 2:5.
Translation of the Greek word hades in N.T. refers to the unseen world, Matt. 11:23; 16:18; Luke 10:15; 16:23; Acts 2:27, 31; Rev. 1:18; 6:8; 20:13, 14.
The Greek word gehenna, signifies the place of torment, Matt. 5:22, 29, 30; 10:28; 18:9; 23:15, 33; Mark 9:43, 45, 47; Luke 12:5; James 3:6; of the Greek verb tartaro, signifying the infernal region, 2 Pet. 2:4.
Sheol is also translated “grave” Gen. 37:35; 42:38; 44:29, 31; 1 Sam. 2:6; 1 Kin. 2:6, 9; Job 7:9; 14:13; 17:13; 21:13; 24:19; Psa. 6:5; 30:3; 31:17; 49:14, 15; 88:3; 89:48; 141:7; Prov. 1:12; 30:16; Eccl. 9:10; Song 8:6; Isa. 14:11; 38:10, 18; Ezek. 31:15; Hos. 13:14; or sometimes pit, Num. 16:30, 33; Job 17:16.
The English revisers insert the Hebrew word sheol in places where hell, grave, and pit were used in the A.V. as translations of the word sheol, except in Deut. 32:22; Psa. 55:15; 86:13; and in the prophetical books. The American revisers use Sheol in the American text, where it occurs in the original.
Hell is the Future Abode of the Wicked: Psa. 9:17; Prov. 5:5; Prov. 9:13–17; Prov. 15:24; Prov. 23:13, 14; Isa. 30:33; Isa. 33:14; Matt. 3:12; Matt. 5:29 v. 30.; Matt. 7:13 v. 14.; Matt. 8:11, 12; Matt. 10:28; Matt. 13:30, 38–42, 49, 50; Matt. 16:18; Matt. 18:8, 9, 34, 35; Matt. 22:13; Matt. 25:28–30, 41, 46; Mark 9:43, 44 vs. 45–48.; Matt. 5:29. Luke 3:17 Matt. 3:12. Luke 16:23, 24, 26 vs. 25, 28; Acts 1:25. 2 Thess. 1:9; 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6, 23; Rev. 9:1, 2 Rev. 11:7. Rev. 14:10, 11; Rev. 19:20; Rev. 20:10, 15; Rev. 21:8 Rev. 2:11.
