Bible Term: Hell

Hell is a place of eternal punishment and anguish; it’s the opposite of heaven.

Although heaven is a popular concept, hell is not.

However, to accept the existence of heaven as an eternal reward for those who follow God, one must also acknowledge an alternative, a place of eternal punishment for those who reject him.
