Is Hell Cute?

ImageI was on Facebook the other day and someone made a comment “Cute as Hell”…  I know they didn’t mean it the way I took it… But when I think of the phrase ‘cute as hell”, I don’t think about hell being cute… Actually  when I think of hell, I think of a horrible looking place that I would never want to see or even contemplate being at… When reading the Bible, this is how it is described…

Hell According to the Bible: 

(1) Hell was designed originally for Satan and his demons (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).

(2) Hell will also punish the sin of those who reject Christ (Matthew 13:41,50; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).

(3) Hell is conscious torment.

  • Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth”
  • Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched”

Is this HellHell is eternal and irreversible.

  • Revelation 14:11 “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night”
  • Revelation 20:14 “This is the second death, the lake of fire”
  • Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”
  • Revelation 14:10 “he will be tormented with fire and brimstone”

Some people would say that God is loving and would never send anyone to Hell… I also think that God is just and has laid out what will happen… There are many verses in the Bible that are difficult to interpret .. My own views is that no matter what someone thinks Hell would be like, I wouldn’t want to be there… I would never want to be somewhere where  God isn’t present…

I have friends of all faiths and some that have no faith at all… Some think that hell is a out darkness without the pretense of God… Some say that it is a place of tremendous torment and gnashing teeth… Nowhere in my thoughts is it a place that is “cute”... If someone thinks that, they need to have a heavy dose of reality…

I would like to say that peoples views vary greatly… But my thoughts is that your destination and hope lays only in the hands of God… I feel that in order to be saved we must accept and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He alone died for our sins… Without Christ dying on Calvary  we would have no chance at all… There is no way we can live up to the standards that God has set for us… But because Jesus died for our sins and took on our sins, we fall under Grace… Thank God for grace…

  1. Nope I think nothing that comes from HE double hocky sticks is cute! And if it is its designed that way to decieve you into thinking its good or cute when its not! Hmmm Just changed e-mail program lost your e-mail address in the change send me a message so I communicate with you again!

    1. Hey Pappy… I will send you an email… I agree when you say it is a deception… It also gets me how people how they say “well, I will be in hell with my friends”… Not thinking that is a good thing either…

  2. I once heard a friend say, that he wanted to go to hell cuz thats where all his friends will be. He was a person that was constantly smoking pot, so I replied to him, “then why do you always get high?” I think it gave him cause to pause.
    Cute as hell could be a phrase used when a person from a distance looks really cute, but when you get close and see that the picture from a distance was deceiving, you would yell, “Yikes, cute as hell!

  3. After more than 50 years of study with regard to “Heaven” and “Hell” I believe there is much more to the concept of “hell” than meets the eye. It seems that each religion has its own version of the conditions one might encounter there. However we are all children of a kind and just Father in Heaven who will not permit us to endure something above our capacity to endure. In eternity we will forever live with the knowledge of our shortcomings. We will know of a surity that which we could have accomplished had we followed the promptings of our conscience and the Holy Spirit, and we will compare that potential with what we actually accomplished. THAT is what “hell” really is. Regret burns our soul, but never consumes it. Our position, or our station in the post-earth life could be truly lovely, but we won’t be able to enjoy it if we didn’t reach our potential. “Hell” may very well be a status of mind and memory. There is much more to this discussion than can be touched upon in this forum, but consider that point of view when you read any scripture regarding “hell” and you’ll see that it fits well.

    1. Thanks for your comment Jim… I would think that if I had to live with all my shortcomings and regrets, that would be hell to me… I know when I carry guilt, it just eats at me until I take care of that matter… I could never imagine having to live with that guilt forever and ever…
