The Troubling Tradition of Hell
What is hell? Is it a hot, fiery place in the center of the earth? Is it a place of torment? You’d be surprised. Perhaps what we think of hell is not at all what the Bible reveals about it. In this message, Steve McVey compares the modern view of hell to what the early church believed.
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
— 1 John 4:8 (NAS)
Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
