There Are People Being Punished In Hell Right Now
Many Christians believe that when we perish, we are judged by God and sent to either heaven or hell. Christian children worry about people who have passed, hoping they aren't in the Lake of Fire.
It turns out that God doesn't work that way. Instead, God withholds judgment until the final day. According to the Bible, no one is in hell right now except Satan and his demons. Every single human ever to have lived, from the very best to the very worst, is simply sleeping, waiting for Christ's return and the final day of judgment.
