HELL

All those who rejected God and did not believe in the only Savior, Jesus Christ, shall be cast out of God's presence forever. They shall be punished forever in hell, the degree of their punishment being determined by the degree of the sin they committed.

Scripture does not describe exactly what hell is or what it will be like after the final judgment. Presently it is a place of spirits of lost angels and human souls. After the resurrection, however, hell will also be a physical place; lost sinners shall suffer there in both soul and body. While the Bible does not precisely describe what eternal punishment in hell will consist of, it does provide us with the following descriptions and comparisons.
