Do you know where the city of Invercargill is located? More than likely you don’t (it is at the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand). So, does the city not exist because you cannot identify where it is? We know hell exists because we have the greatest authority on this earth stating that it does—the Word of God. We also have reason on our side. If God is good, He will see to it that murderers and rapists get justice. However, He will be so thorough in His justice, He will see that thieves, liars, adulterers, fornicators, etc., are punished, and God’s “prison” is a place called hell. While the Bible says that heaven is “up” and hell is “down,” I don’t need to know any more than that to know I don’t want to go to a horrible place of eternal torment.
Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
