HELL – Does It Really Exist and Why Would a Loving God Send Anyone There?

The place we normally think of as “Hell” is described in the Book of Revelation as the “Lake of Fire.”  From the standpoint of what we are told, the first two beings that will be cast into the Lake of Fire are the Beast and the False Prophet.  Thereafter, Satan and all those who rejected God will be cast in as further described in the Book of Revelation:

And the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on
behalf of the beast—miracles that deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast
and who worshiped his statue. Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive
into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

           Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur,
joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever
and ever.  And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled
from his presence, but they found no place to hide.  I saw the dead, both great and small,
standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And
the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The
sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged
according to their deeds.  Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This
lake of fire is the second death.   And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the
Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.
