Journey to Judgment: Hell
Passage: Luke 16:19–16:31
There is a way that seems right to a pilgrim, but its end is death. That's the final stop described by Luke and many other biblical authors, including the divine author, Jesus Himself. Hell is the literal place of conscious, eternal torment where sinners apart from the saving grace of God will know misery forevermore. The reality of Hell should drive the believer to faithfulness in witness, seeking to rescue many from the coming day of wrath.
