For over 2,000 years of the history of Christianity, the existence of Hell has been emphasized. There is a reason for this. The Holy Bible clearly emphasizes the existence of Hell. But some people in modern day America try to say that Hell does not exist, because a loving god will not allow human beings to suffer. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are talking about God, who made a simple command: “Don’t eat the fruit from a tree (of the knowledge of good and evil).” When Adam and Eve violated this simple and plain command, God could have just said, “Forget-about-it! It’s just a fruit! I tell ya what. Just eat the fruit. I am not going to forbid anything, since I am God and I am a nice, loving guy.” But God did not do this. God gave Adam and Eve capital punishment. In other words, the violation of eating a fruit was death – real, physical death. We are talking about a supreme being who has no respect for human life. There is no sanctity of human life with God. Otherwise, he would not have taken the life for Adam and Eve for something that seems so trivial as eating a fruit. Yeah, he made that illegal, but it seems like the kind of violation like telling a white lie. Lying is sin, ain’t it? But white lie is so small and it does make the other person feel good. So, in the whole scheme of the world and big creation of God, how significant can eating a piece of fruit be? But God gave Adam and Eve capital punishment – literally, a death sentence – for eating a piece of fruit, just because it violated God’s Law, which is simply put “whatever God tells us not to do.” So, we can see a picture of God, here. God was not being cruel, just to be kind. God was being cruel to be cruel, and that is the prerogative of God as the Supreme Being. After Adam, every human being is born with original sin, and thus condemned to eternal damnation. Doesn’t this beg the question: If God just said – “It’s okay, Adam and Eve. I love you, and I forgive you. You don’t have to die. I change my mind.” – then, Adam and Eve would not have had to die. No other human being would have been born with sin and be, de facto, sentenced to eternal damnation. But obviously, there is more to God than the simple statement: “God is love.” God is far more complex than that, and that is a part of the awesomeness of God. God is not a simpleton or a one-dimensional being that some Christians reduce Him to. God is far greater, far more awesome. And Hell is something that shows how complex God is. We are talking about a everlasting, forever place, whose primary purpose is eternal torture with absolutely no possibility of redemption or salvation (after the Second Coming of Christ and the Final Judgment). How could a loving God create such a place? No redemption! Can you imagine that? After the Second Coming of Christ, there is no chance for you to repent and get out of Hell. Or if you are hit by a truck tomorrow and die. You have no chance after that to get out of the eternal damnation in Hell. Obviously, if you think that you are headed to this eternal torture chamber with absolutely zero possibility of redemption, you would like to know what such a place will be like. I understand. To answer your question in simple terms, the answer would be “Yes.” There will be a lot of pain in Hell. In fact, God will give all the people who will go to eternal damnation in Hell a new resurrected body, so that they can experience the pain of burning for eternity without ever burning up. There is absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel. It will be torture after torture after torture … forever! Call it “Operation Infinite Justice of God”. Imagine being waterboarded for eternity in Quantico or Guantanamo Bay. That’s nothing compared to what’s in store in Hell. It is so horrible there that Jesus Christ, who is God, who actually made the place, describes Hell in this way: “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:42). Have you seen a Rambo-like Marine or Special Forces Delta commando weep like a baby and gnash his teeth? Well, if you go to Hell, you will see such a thing, for eternity. Oh, I guess we are forgetting something, here, aren’t we? You will be in so much pain in Hell, and you will be weeping like a baby and gnashing your teeth that you will not be able to divert your attention away from your own pain to the person near you. Everyone is suffering infinite pain in his or her aloneness for eternity in Hell. So, you can be next to someone, but you will be focused on your own pain. Hell is an eternal torture chamber that the God of the Bible has designed, and you can flip through the Gospels to see what kind of people go there. Make a checklist and make sure you don’t end up in Hell. It’s a lot more important than applying for a job or a promotion.
