God’s Presence in Hell

October 26, 2016

Here’s Paul Washer on hell:

In modern Evangelical thinking, hell is often described as a place of torment outside of the presence of God. It is often said that heaven is heaven because of the presence of God, and hell is hell because of His absence. Although this statement has an element of truth, it is extremely misleading. It is not the absence of God that makes hell a place of torment, but the absence of His favorable presence. In fact, hell is hell because God is there in the fullness of His justice and wrath.
