We have a body and a soul. When we die our souls go somewhere… forever.

WE SPEND ETERNITY SOMEWHERE
Studies show that over 90% of people believe in a “heaven” while less than 50% believe in hell. According to the Bible, heaven and hell are real! The truth is each one of us will spend eternity somewhere. We must not ignore this reality or entertain other ideas of uncertainty.
Because sin exists in our lives it separates us from God. Since we all fall short of the perfectness of God we would all be sent to the condemnation of hell. In order to bridge the gap between us and God, Jesus stepped in and paid the price for us. This is why he came to earth in the flesh. Despite all other claims, Jesus is the only way to heaven. Religion in a sense becomes irrelevant as it comes down to the acceptance and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
AN ETERNAL DESTINATION
Death cannot be avoided by exercise, diet, meditation, pills, surgery, the next genetic discovery, or anything else. Many are uncertain and fearful about their eternal destination. Some speculate that because they haven’t murdered anyone or robbed banks, they are already good enough for heaven. Their own hearts are deceiving them. According to the Bible, the human heart is the most deceitful thing there is (Jeremiah 17:9).
The sin problem must be dealt with. Romans 3:23 says that the entire human race has sinned and fails to measure up to God’s standards. Everyone has turned away from God and done what they wanted to do (Isaiah 53:6). There isn’t anyone who hasn’t sinned (Ecclesiastes 7:20).
Life is so short compared to eternity. James 4:14 For what is your life? It is even a vapor that vanishes away.
SO HOW CAN A COMPASSIONATE GOD SEND PEOPLE TO HELL?
God desires that every man escape Hell and find salvation. Anyone who regrets his evil and repents, and turns to God through Christ will be saved. Hell was made for Satan and his fallen angels but those who persist in evil, or are too proud to submit to God, or foolish enough to turn to God will not escape the condemnation.
Matthew 25:46 – For those who reject Christ
There is an eternal destination in hell for those who reject Jesus as Savior.
1 Corinthians 2:9 – Eternal life in Heaven
There really is life after death, an eternal, glorious life for those who know and love God.
