The Reason for Hell

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

(Luke 16:23) KJV

A lot of people are troubled by the question, if God is loving why would he send people to hell? Making the case for why is quite involved and most people will simply tune out and decide that they don’t need a God like that. To their peril.

Hell is Darkness, Heaven is Light

He sings before men and says:
‘I sinned and perverted what was right,
and it was not repaid to me.
He has redeemed my soul from going down into the pit,
and my life shall look upon the light.’

“Behold, God does all these things,
twice, three times, with a man,
to bring back his soul from the pit,

(Job 11:7-8) KJV

Hell is down, deep and below; heaven is up, high and above. There are many examples in scripture which are consistent with this orientation. Hell is never referred to as above, heaven is never referred to as below.

The Reason for Hell

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

(Psalm 16:10) KJV

The reason for hell is: the temporary storage of the accumulated impurity and corruption which is inherent in creation. It’s a consequence of the creation of gravity, and it’s required for the purification of creation.
