Hell is a place of pain, sadness, and separation from God.

The Bible tells us that hell is a dark, painful place. It's a real place where people are always hurting. They are always separated from God and His love. It's a lonely place, where people are never around anything that's good or fun or happy.

Once people are in hell, they are there forever and aren't ever able to go to heaven. Heaven is God's home. We deserve to be in hell apart from the perfect God because of our sin (bad things we do). But God made a way to forgive sinners. Find out what Jesus did so you can be with Him in heaven: click here.

Bible Truth

"He will punish those who don't know God. He will punish those who don't obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. They will be destroyed forever. They will be shut out of heaven. They will never see the glory of the Lord's power" (2 Thessalonians 1:8–9).

"When you sin, the pay you get is death. But God gives you the gift of eternal life because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done" (Romans 6:23).
