We believe that unbelievers go to Hell for eternity. They do not vanish or get released into Heaven after a time. Jesus said in Matthew 25:45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” Jesus also tells us in Mark 3:29 “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.” Punishment cannot be everlasting if those being punished do not also last forever. Jesus Himself said they will go into, “everlasting punishment,” or, “eternal damnation” therefore those who go to Hell will neither have an end to their existence, not to their punishment. To say that Hell is eternal torment, but it does not torment eternally is a self-refuting statement.
Mark 9:43 “And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.” He also said in Luke 12:4 “And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
Notice that these are not the words of the Pope or some religious dude, they are the Words of Jesus Himself! So Jesus clearly taught that People who go to Hell are there forever without ever vanishing away.
Hebrews 6:1”Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.” So according to Hebrews, the fact that Hell torments eternally is basic foundational doctrine.
Jude 1:7 “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
Revelation 14:11 also tells us, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Last, but not least, Revelation 20:12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” These verses make it clear that the torment of Hell is eternal. There is no point at which a spirit is consumed or destroyed and the torment ends, nor any get out of Hell free card to get a person into Heaven after they have served their time in Hell.

ETERNAL PUNISHMENT- Introduction
“How can a loving God send people to hell forever and ever?” Is hell really everlasting, or will it eventually “freeze over?”
ETERNAL PUNISHMENT- Annihilationism
You’d expect cultists to annihilate the concept of hell, but today, more and more evangelical Christians are buying into this idea of annihilation as well. Rather than believe that unbelievers are going to suffer forever and ever, they claim a just God would never allow infinite suffering for finite sin. But for this argument to be consistent, we would be forced to say that God shouldn’t extend eternal bliss to finite creatures. See this argument is self-defeating because annihilationism teaches that finite wrongdoers will be zapped into unconscious oblivion for an infinite amount of time.
ETERNAL PUNISHMENT- Sins are Minimized
Let me also add this, if there were no hell, the atrocity of sins against the very character of God would be minimized. And in light of crimes committed by Nazi war criminals and things like that, the horror of eternal, conscious punishment may not be so inconceivable after all.
ETERNAL PUNISHMENT- Scriptural Support?
Annihilationists try to use Scriptures like Malachi 4:1 and Matthew 10:28 to argue for extinction rather than everlasting punishment. But the consummation of evildoers, which is spoken of in these passages, does not at all infer extinction. Rather, it clearly means that evildoers will undergo conscious destruction forever (Mark 9:42-48; Luke 16:19-31; 2 Thes. 1:8,9; Jude 7-13; Rev. 14:9-11).
ETERNAL PUNISHMENT- Conclusion
Remember, a text without a context is a pretext. So let’s look at the clear context of Scripture — passages like Matthew 25:41,46 and Rev. 20. Here we see without equivocation that the Bibles states hell is both conscious and never ending. Like the anti-Christ and the false prophet, evildoers will be tormented “forever and ever.” The bottom line is this, since the Bible confirms that hell is forever, we ought to confirm that hell is forever as well. On the annihilation of hell, that’s the CRI Perspective. I’m Hank Hanegraaff.

If you have any questions about our beliefs, please feel free to ask. Please keep in mind that we have these beliefs because this is our understanding of what God Almighty has revealed to us through His Word, (the Holy Bible), and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. For this reason, while these things are open for honest discussion and sincere questions, deliberately teaching against them will not be allowed.
We wish to have NO False Doctrine Taught, Discussion on how a man-made religion is different than someone coming to Christ and having a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP With God Almighty and Jesus Christ THROUGH FAITH, is alright. Thank you.
(All quoted Holy Bible Verses are in King James Version unless otherwise marked.)
Israel is God’s special chosen people and they are to be blessed and prayed for by all Christians.
(Genesis 12:1-3,Deuteronomy 7:6, Psalm 122:6)
Israel has had an active role in bringing God’s Word to the world since they were:
1. The first to receive the law from God, (namely the Ten Commandments).
2. The nation to which Jesus was sent.
Israel also will have an active role in the end times.
There is only one God who exists in the form of Three Persons. (Trinity with a Godhead)

God is good, perfect, and inerrant.
(Psalm 34:8, Psalm 100:5, I John 1:5)
The Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of God and the fulfilled prophecies in it are the evidence of its Author and trustworthiness.
(II Timothy 3:16-17)
Everything that exists has been created by God.
(Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-3)
God created the Earth round, not flat, and He created the entire universe.
(Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 40:22)
God Himself is personally active and involved in the world, in each life He has created, and especially in the lives of His believers.
(Matthew 5:45, John 14:23 )
God uses angels, but they are only servants of God and NOT to be worshipped.
(Revelation 19:10, Colossians 2:18)
Humans were never angels and will not become angels after death.
We love God through obedience to Him and His Word (the Holy Bible).
(John 14:15 )
Disobedience against God is sin.
(I Samuel 15:22-25)
Sin separated us from God. (Gen 3:6 Began in the Garden of Eden)
God, the Father, sent Jesus, His Son, to save us from sin and reunite us with God.
(John 3:16-17, John 10:28, John 14:6, Romans 8:33-39, Hebrews 9:28)
Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead the third day and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven.
(Mark 16:19, I Corinthians 15:3-4)
The Holy Spirit seals Believers for Heaven.
A person can be saved without water baptism, especially if there is no opportunity for baptism, (such as with the thief that was crucified, with Jesus in (Luke 23:39-43), (Or those on their death bed or dying accepting Christ before their last breath), but baptism is the command of Jesus and to disregard that command as a matter of choice is an act of willful disobedience and therefore sin that will hinder the walk with the Lord.
Jesus did link Baptism with Salvation as a part of Salvation when he said in Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”
John 3:5 also says, “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
Born of water refers to water baptism, born of the Spirit, refers to salvation, The seal of the Holy Spirit mentioned in (Ephesians 4:30), and Spiritual baptism.
Matthew 3:13 “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him (John). 14 But John forbad him, saying, ‘I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?’ 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, ‘Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness.’ Then he suffered him.”
If the Holy, Sinless Son of God could NOT fulfill all righteousness without baptism, then neither can any fallible human being.
(See also I Peter 3:21-22)
We are living in the End Times; The Rapture (the Christians being taken to Heaven) can happen at any moment. Dan 9:27 says that when the Antichrist rises a false peace treaty will happen for 7 years. Those who are here during that time will see this happen and go through a tribulation of 7 years. (I Thessalonians 4:15-18)
At the end of all these things, all the enemies of God will be defeated, Jesus will rule on the throne of His glory, and we will all bow to Him and confess Him as Lord as it says in Philippians 2:9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Rev 3:21, 4:11, 12:5-6
We believe God’s Word teaches that these things are sin:
(ALL topics are open for discussion in a civil manner),
- Denying the existence of God.
(Psalm 14:1, Romans 1:18-21)
- Worshipping anyone or anything other than God Himself.
- (Exodus 20:3)
- Loving anyone or anything more than God.
- Twisting God’s Word to suit your own purposes or preferences.
(Romans 1:26-27, I Corinthians 6:9-10)
(Exodus 1:15-21 Psalm 339:14-16, Jeremiah 1:50, Luke 17:1-2)
Invitation To Salvation
Romans 10:7-13 “Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (KJV)
There is no sin so great that God cannot or will not forgive you if you are willing to turn away from that sin and put your trust in Jesus. Even when He was suffering on the Cross, Luke 23:34 tells us, “Then said Jesus, ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.” God has made forgiveness available to all through Jesus.” (John 3:16-17)
So no matter what you have done or what religion or cult you have been in, you can come to Jesus and receive salvation for your soul.
If you were to die right this minute, are you ready to stand in front of Jesus and give an account of the way you have lived your life? If you aren’t ready for that and you want to be, then the first step to getting ready is this prayer:
I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and that you rose again the third day. Please forgive me for my sins and come into my heart and be Lord of my life. Help me overcome sin in my life and live for you so I will have joy when I see your glory, in Jesus name; Amen.
(The Prayer above is just you openly confessing to Jesus you need him (talking to him)) (Romans 10:7-13)
If you just said that prayer, whether you are new to the faith or returning to it, please read our document "For New And Returning Believers" to learn more about what to do next. Please be aware that as you grow in your understanding of God and what He wants for you, that you will also become aware that of sins in your life. God does forgive our sins and He gives us the Grace to overcome them. We encourage you to continue to pray and ask Him for His forgiveness for sins as you become aware of them and ask Him to help you to grow in your walk with Him daily. We also strongly suggest that you get a Bible. You can visit https://www.biblegateway.com to get Bible apps and other Christian material to help you in your walk with Jesus. You Can buy a Bible and other related Christian stuff here https://www.christianbook.com/
As stated above, the Rapture of the Church may happen at any given moment. We desire you to be a part of that as believers in Christ as part of the body of Christ because Jesus Christ came to save mankind (John 3:17) Spiritually….(for new believers, please ask questions, if you are seeking a real bible and something offline, it is recommended to get what is referred to as a word for word bible).
We believe that the Bible in general, and Jesus in particular teaches that Hell is eternal and the people who go there are there for the rest of eternity. (Matthew 25:45-46, Mark 3:29, Mark 9:43-50) To see more on Hell and our beliefs about it, including these references and even more Scripture on it, see:
Hell doc goes here
Please note also that though many have tried, no one has EVER been able to disprove the Holy Bible through the years! In fact every piece of evidence that has been unearthed by archeologists only confirms the historical accuracy of it. Don’t risk your eternity on the meager hope that the Holy Bible is not the Word of God.
