“…..when a person chooses against God and, therefore, de facto chooses hell—or when he jokes about preferring hell with his friends over heaven with boring religious people—he does not know what he is doing. What he rejects is not the real heaven (nobody will be boring in heaven), and what he “wants” is not the real hell, but the tolerable hell of his imagination.
When he dies, he will be shocked beyond words. The miseries are so great he would do anything in his power to escape.” John Piper
You might believe in God and salvation though Jesus Christ or you might not – but whatever you believe, you have likely heard of hell – a place that you may or may not think is so nice depending on what you imagine hell to be. Or perhaps you don’t believe Hell even exists. Whatever your thoughts or beliefs, if you are interested in knowing what Christ thought about hell, you may be interested in reading this article by John Piper.
I would love to hear your thoughts. How do you imagine hell? Or do you not imagine a hell at all?
