Does Hell exist? Yes or no? What do you say? We want to hear from you!

The Bible Says: Does Hell Exist?

Join the discussion!

To celebrate “The Bible Says” second month of existence and to say “Thank You” to every single reader who has joined the discussions, we have a BIG topic, with loads of Scriptures, more than ever before, some might even surprise you.

Since “The Bible Says” focuses only on what the Bible says, we enthusiastically invite any of our brilliant readers to provide the meanings of the words Sheol or Gehenna, which are often translated into this week’s topic, you will definitely enliven and illuminate the discussion even further.

Much heartfelt thanks to everyone who has participated in “The Bible Says” discussions; all of you deserve a big round of applause!


  • Yes: Those that don’t go to heaven are tortured forever in hell.

Matthew 10:28, 18:8-9; Luke 16:19-31

  • No: Those that don’t go to heaven, just die.

Ezekiel 18:4; Proverbs 24:20; Romans 6:23; James 1:15, 5:20

  • Everyone goes to heaven after they die.

1 Corinthians 15:21-22, 1 Timothy 4:10, 1 John 2:2

  • Is hell a metaphor for humankind’s common grave — was Jesus raised from grave, hell?

Acts 2:27, 31, 32; Psalms 16:10

Extra Credit:

How do we, or religious leaders decide which Scriptures need to be followed, and which Scriptures, or entire books in some cases such as the Gospel of Thomas are OK to ignore?
