“Is Hell Real?”Categories: HEAVEN & HELL
What does the Bible say about hell? Is the word "hell" in the Bible? I heard someone claim that the Catholics made up hell to scare people into paying to stay out.

Dear Cash In Hand,
Hell is a real place that you really don’t want to go to. The word hell is used multiple times in the Bible – Matt 5:29-30, Matt 10:28, Matt 23:33, and Lk 12:5 are just a few.
The Bible says the wicked go to a place where the fire burns, but the worm never dies (Mk 9:47-49). At the Judgment, the wicked shall go to where there is ‘everlasting punishment’ (Matt 25:46). Eternal separation from God is a very real consequence of sin and is the last thing anyone wants to face. We recently preached a series of lessons on this very topic.
