I've been through hell already on this earth

This earth is not a paradise by any means because when sin entered the world, it messed the whole thing up.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned

Jesus said there would be trials but he said he would be there to help us.

John 16:33 In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Living in this world is hard, but is by no means a passage into heaven

Jesus is the only way into heaven

John 14:6 Jesus answered:"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

hell is a much worse place than this earth

Jesus stated in Matthew 24:51 and Matthew 25:30 plus other verses say hell will be a place of 'weeping and gnashing of teeth'.

When was the last time you wept, you must have felt pretty bad.

When was the last time you were in such pain that you clentched your teeth together because you were in such agony.

Imagine if you had to endure both for one day....how about forever

There is more...

Isaiah 14:11 ...maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you.

Mark 9:48 ...'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'

Luke 16:22-26The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man died and was buried. In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.' But Abraham replied, 'Son remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over there to us.

Revelation 20:15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
