“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
A lot of people say they don’t believe in Hell, but they still seem to like using the word. But I think by using it so often to punctuate a sentence, people are admitting that deep down inside, they really believe that a place called Hell actually exists.
There is, by the way, a town in Michigan called Hell. How does a place end up with a name like that? There are several theories. One is that it was a swampy, undesirable area, and when someone asked George Reeves, an early settler there, what to name it, he reportedly said, “I don’t care. You can name it Hell for all I care.”
So, they did. Apparently, the residents have made it a bit of tourist destination with various events and business that play on the name.
