With great compassion, Jesus warns about the horrors and reality of eternity in Hell. Since Hell is real and Jesus is fully aware of its reality, He would be dreadfully unloving if He did not warn us of its horror. Amazingly, however, those who believe in the reality of hell, as revealed in the Scriptures, are often accused of either distorting the love of Jesus or holding to an angry Jesus. The fact remains, Jesus did speak a lot about Hell; therefore, before we accuse Jesus of being uncaring, we better remember the infinite pain and suffering He went through to grant us salvation. In this section, Jesus provides three certainties concerning the coming judgment we need in preparation for eternity.
