The Fires of Hell and Eternal Torment
Hope Sabbath School Episode 10
Added 29 Nov 2022
The eternal destinies of the righteous and wicked are described in sharp contrast to each other. The first group receives everlasting life, and the other group will experience God’s painful judgment of condemnation and be totally annihilated. The big lie of eternal punishment and of the perpetual suffering of the wicked in hell is built on the satanic deception expressed in the Garden of Eden: “ ‘You will not surely die’ ” (Gen. 3:4, NKJV) Another teaching that has arisen through this is the concept of purgatory which removes accountability for personal actions in this life and provides a false sense of security of a second chance, which is never mentioned in the Bible.
