How does hell glorify God?

Posted: November 9, 2010 by doulos tou Theou in Hell

This question was asked at Monday Bible study and thought this bit would be helpful to those who didn’t get to hear Rob answer the question. These answers come from the an article with link at bottom.

  • It shows that he keeps his word.
  • It shows his infinite worth, lasting forever.
  • It demonstrates his power to subdue all who rebel against him.
  • It shows how unspeakably merciful he is to those who trust him.
  • It upholds the reality of love by visiting justice against those who reject God, who is love.
  • It vindicates all who suffered to hear or proclaim the truth of God’s Word.
  • And it shows the enormity of what Jesus accomplished when he died to save all who would trust him from the hell they deserved. If there were no hell, there would be no need for the cross.

(This material has been adapted from James M. Hamilton, Jr.’s article, “How does Hell Glorify God?”)

another good article to stimulate the mind is “How is Hell integral to the Gospel

    It will be helpful to those who didn’t hear me answer it and helpful to those who saw my answer as entirely insufficient! A well rounded list. Thanks.
