(Message 3) Hell ya! What the Hell? See you in Hell! Hell has become a curse word or simply part of common phrases in our culture. In this way it's become trite, especially since so many don't believe in Hell. Those who do can't seem to agree on its nature. Join us for our message, "One Minute After You Die: Hell" as we discuss 4 perspectives on Hell. #GCAfterYouDie

Hell: Eternal Conscious Torment or Temporary Conscious Torment?
1 Cor 3:13-151
13 But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value.14 If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward.15 But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.
But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.
1 Timothy 2:3-4
3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (NIV)
Romans 5:18 -19
18 Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.
19 Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.
For God has imprisoned everyone in disobedience so he could have mercy on everyone.
Colossians 1:19 - 20
19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
Mark 9:47 - 48
And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, 48 where “‘the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ (NIV)
“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
