Jesus almost threatens people who cause believers to stumble.  He declares it would be better to drown with a millstone tied around their necks.

God is not using Hell to threaten people into relationship with Him. God offered real choice to validate love and URGES us not to choose to be apart from everything good, eternally.

Jesus describes NOT with God, Hell, in specific language. Biblical literature paints a very negative picture of this avoidable final state.

Smarter guys with publishers are reasoning away this pretty simple language about Hell. Give a listen and Read the bible verses quoted and decide what you will believe...
