According to the Bible, yes, there is. Even though many people don’t believe in hell, God in His Word confirms its existence.

Hell is described in various places in the Old Testament as a place of sorrows, corruption, affliction, and judgment; distresses, destruction and disaster – a place you don’t want to go.

We receive even more unpleasant portrayals in the New Testament describing hell as a fire that is eternal and unquenchable, a lake of fire and brimstone, a furnace of fire, an outer darkness, and an everlasting punishment.

There are events recorded in God’s Word which reveal what a person in hell will face. It is a place of eternal torment. It is a place of great heat. It is a place of great thirst. It is a place apart from all that is good. It is a place of remembrance. It is a place of loneliness.

As with heaven, the Bible does not locate hell precisely, although many guess at its whereabouts.

It’s really not important to determine hell’s exact location.

What’s important is determining how to avoid going there.
