30. What is the eternal punishment for sin?

If the sinner does not confess his sin and receive Jesus’ forgiveness, he is condemned to complete separation from God and eternal torment and despair.

  • It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:31)
  • Then the king said to the servants, “Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 22:13)
  • Then He will also say to those on the left hand, Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:41)
