According to a 2004 Gallup poll, reported in the Washington Times, 81% of Americans believe in heaven and 70% believe in hell. An earlier Gallup Poll found that 77% of Americans were optimistic about making it to heaven. Very few saw themselves as headed to hell.  How would these same Americanís in this Gallup poll respond, if they knew


Few will enter into heaven and many will enter into hell - 1 Peter 4:17-18


In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus teaches many will enter the broad way that leads to destruction, but only a few will enter the narrow way which leads to life



The word hell derives its meaning from the Hebrew (ge-hinnnom), the Valley of Hinnum, which was a pit into which trash, defiled or filthy things were dumped to be burned. This became a technical term for unending torment


Outer darkness, furnace of fire, lake of fire, wailing and gnashing of teeth


In the Bible hell is described as


Hell is not a temporary state of punishment. Hellís duration is everlasting, without end which means in hell the body will not decay from the fire because, God says it is a place where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched - Mark 9:43-48



Will you choose the narrow way to Heaven, or the broad way to Hell?When Jesus Christ comes back again, He will judge the world. Those who have obeyed Christ and lived faithfully until death will be rewarded with the beauty and blessing of living eternally in heaven. Those who were disobedient and rebelled against Jesus will be punished with everlasting destruction in hell - Matthew 13:47-50


Let us be encouraged to enter into the strait gate and the narrow way


Enter the narrow way which leads to heaven, not the wide gate and the broad way which will leads to everlasting torment in hell - 2 Peter 1:10-11


Are you Saved?


Accept the Salvation that God offers:  Hear - Believe - Repent - Confess - Be Baptized.
