Which Sounds Better To You: Heaven or Hell?


It may seem like a simple question to answer. Then again, culture seems to think hell will be a party for all eternity, while heaven will be a boring time playing harps, floating on clouds and living without any fun.

Today’s culture doesn’t take heaven — or hell — seriously. But we should. In fact, the more you investigate both these eternal destinations, the more serious you will be about your decision to accept Jesus or not, and how you will live out your life on earth.

But how often do you get together with friends to talk about what happens after death? Probably never. Couldn’t heaven and hell provide the ultimate motivation for life on earth? Yes.

  • Key Point: The key to living a meaningful life is knowing the real truth about death. It’s like an eternal life insurance policy.

The hope of eternal life in heaven can create a daily source of motivation to live differently; a life of love, grace and truth; a life that seeks to know, obey and serve God as our eternal father; a life that loves others.

  • Key Point: A decision to live separate from God in this life is a decision to live separate from God in the next.

Jesus called heaven, in Luke 23:43, “paradise.” And hell, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. The Bible says hell is a place of never-ending physical torment, torture and anguish.

So how can you be sure you won’t spend eternity in hell? What crime does a person have to commit to be sent to such a horrible place?

Taking the Hit

“Kenny, it’s Bill.”

“Hey, Bill. What’s going on?”

“Listen, Kenny. Do you have a minute? I need to ask you a question about something.”


“Absolutely. Fire away.”  I said.

That was a lie. A truthful response would have been: “No, I don’t have a minute or another second. I just finished a board meeting. I am under titanic pressure at the moment to finish this project, and I am getting frustrated over all the interruption!” That was my reality but I wasn’t going to make Bill suffer for what he didn’t know. I love the guy. So I let on about my reality for Bill’s sake and just swallowed my angst. After mentally placing my precious schedule on the altar, Bill shared with me what’s giving him a spiritual fever.
