- "Torment" in our text is basanidzo and means “an idiom, literally ‘to be tormented in soul’...to experience mental torment involving sorrow mixed with anger — ‘to experience anguish, to be tormented in one’s heart.’”
"Hell, then, is the trajectory of a soul, living a self-absorbed, self-centered life, going on and on forever. . . . In short, hell is simply one’s freely chosen identity apart from God on a trajectory into infinity." - The Reason for God
“If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
If you need care for a loss, relationships, marriage, illness, or anything else, please reach out to a pastor. Any of our pastoral staff would be glad to meet with you, as well as connect you with other resources, including counseling.
