Part 2

Last Week:
-God made you to love you.
-You were made to last forever.
-God made two places to dwell-heaven and hell.
-You can choose where to go.
-There are no second chances.

Why does hell exist?
1. Because sin and evil exist. (Genesis 6:5-6; Psalm 15:1-2)
2. Because God is holy and just. (Psalm 27:13, Ecclesiastes 8:9-12, Psalm 67:4, 2 Thessalonians 1:5-9, 2 Corinthians 5:10)

What is hell like?
1. It is a place of torment. (Matthew 8:12)
2. It is a place of total separation from God. (1 John 4:18)
3. It is a place with no love. (1 John 4:18)

How do we avoid hell?
1. Admit that I’m a sinner
2. Believe that Jesus died for me.
3. Confess Jesus as Lord.
