HOW SHALL YOU ESCAPE THE SENTENCE OF HELL (2)
This lesson is the second part of a teaching on hell. We concluded our last lesson by looking at three biblical expressions related to hell: (1) ‘the weeping and gnashing of teeth,’ (2) ‘the fire of hell,’ and (3) ‘the outer darkness.’ We mentioned that though the imagery is different, all these expressions involve the idea of death. The ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth’ is the reaction of a person before his execution. When you are in the fire of hell, you are consumed. You die. When you are cast out into the outer darkness, you are cut off from God’s life. You die.
