Some Thoughts On Hell
"What a subtle tempter Satan is. What a decietful thing sin is. What a foolish creature corrupted man is. A subtle tempter indeed, who can persuade the greatest part of the world to go willfully into everlasting fire, when they have so many warnings and dissuasives as they have. A decietful thing is sin indeed, that can bewitch so many thousands to part with everlasting life, for a thing so base and utterly unworthy! A foolish creature is man indeed, who will be so cheated of his salvation for nothing, yea, for a known nothing; and that by an enemy and a known enemy. You would think it impossible that any man in is wits should be persuaded for a trifle to cast himself into the fire, or water, or into a cold pit, to the destruction of his life. And yet men will be enticed to cast themselves into hell."
— Richard Baxter
"Should you make your abode in hell, you will see the burning faces, the glazed eyes, the totured hands of fellow prisoners of damnation. You will recognize, God forbid, husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, friend, neighbor, that you could easily have taken to heaven as dragged down to hell. Oh, that awful mass of weeping, wailing humanity that inhabits hell! They, too, cry one heaven-searching cry to God, but, alas too late. All cry that endless refrain, 'Forever! Forever!' Beyond God forever! Beyond Christ forever! Beyond the Spirit forever! Beyond the cross forever! Byond the blood forever! Beyond tears forever! Beyond repentance forever! Beyond faith forever! Beyond confession forever! Beyond time forever! Beyond eternity forever! Forever! Forever! Forever!"
— Hyman J. Appleman
It has been estimated that only 7% of the world's population has accepted the Biblical plan of salvation. Even if this research is wrong and the number is 75%, that still means that over 38,000 people are going to Hell every day. Clearly, there is still much that needs to be done to bring the lost to Christ. The counter below shows the estimated average number of people who have died since this page was opened.
Did you know that over 150,000 people die every day?
On average, every time this little man blinks
someone passes into eternity
"We know the enormity only by God's own declaration with regard to it, and by the sacrifice which He has made to redeem us from it. As committed against an infinite God, and as having in itself infinite possibilities of evil, it may itself be infinite, and may deserve infinite punishment. Hell, as well as the cross, indicates God's estimate of sin."
— Emery H. Bancroft
"Now the physical side of this world is temporary, but Hell's fire is eternal. The rich man in the account given by Jesus was tormented in the 'flame' (Luke 16:24). The pitful part about it is that he is still in the same flame."
— Joe Boyd
"Some object to the preaching of this truth [hell] on the grounds that children shouldn't hear it. It shocks them, according to some. I was shocked by it when I was seven. So shocked to learn that I was a sinner and on my way to hell, that I ran straight into the arms of Christ. God knows better than man, what to put in His Word, and all that is in the Word should be preached to all ages."
— Fred Brown
"We have been led to a serious study of this subject [Hell] for several reasons. One is that there is no other doctrine that is clearly taught in Scripture which is so greatly denied or ignored in our modern theological world..."
— Harry Buis
John Calvin refers to Hell as "this gulf of perdition" and declares that "no description can equal the severity of the Diving vengeance on the reprobate, their anguish and torment are figuratively represented under corporal images; as darkness, weeping, and gnashing of teeth, unextinguishable fire, a worm incessantly gnawing the heart.
— John Calvin

An Amazing Fact:
The sun is a fantastically hot cosmic-radiation powerhouse, with a surface temperature of about 11,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Its interior temperature is estimated as high as 18 million degrees Fahrenheit. The pressure at the center of the sun is about 700 million tons per square inch. That's enough to smash atoms, expose the inner nuclei, and allow them to smash into each other, interact, and produce the nuclear fusion that gives us our light and heat. In fact, the material at the core of the sun is so intensely hot that if you could capture just enough to cover a pinhead, it would radiate sufficient heat to kill a man one mile away!
