A Timeless Teaching
Job recognized that when he died, he would go to sleep; and he would not rise again until the Lord called him out of the grave at Jesus' second coming and changed his mortal body into an immortal body (1 Thess. 4:16; 1 Cor. 15:51-53). Yet, many Christians are taught to believe that we have an eternal soul that goes straight to Heaven or Hell upon death.
A Cruel Tyrant
This is a diabolical deception, because it leads people to the conclusion that God is now and forever will be punishing people in Hell. In turn, This concept of God has done untold damage to the cause of Christ. It's a complete distortion of God's just and loving character. He Who loved us so much that He sent Jesus, His Son, to die on the cross for our sins isn't going to turn around and punish all of the impenitent forever, in Hell fire.
The Purpose of Hell Fire
Don't get me wrong, there will be a fiery punishment for sinners; but it has a purpose: to cleanse the world of sin so God can create a new heaven and new earth. (2 Pet. 3:10-13).
