Hell is a horrible place where those who choose to reject the blood of Jesus Christ, and align themselves with Satan end up going. It is described in the Bible as a place of extreme torment, and unbelievable pain where there is total separation from God[1] Originally Hell was created for Satan, and the fallen angels due to their wickedness, but when sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, mankind fell short of the glory of God and became sinful, giving Satan the legal right to make claims on the souls of people.[2] It is only through the belief in Jesus Christ for the remission of sins that someone can avoid going there.[3]

Etymology

A ravine south of Jerusalem gave hell its name. The word translated hell tn the New Testament is the Greek word gehenna, which comes from a Hebrew phrase meaning valley of Hinnom. It refers to the valley near Jerusalem where there had a pagan hearth used to burn the victims of child sacrifice.
