And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell !
The Scriptures teach that hell is a place of eternal torment. It is reserved for Satan, his angels, and those who refuse to make Jesus Christ Lord and Savior of their life. The message of the Gospel is a message of grace, i.e., that the Lord will deliver all from God's wrath - from hell - if they will believe on Him and accept His atoning blood for their sins. Jesus taught that all who believed on Him would be saved.
Not Everyone that says "Lord, Lord"
Mat 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

(23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Hell is for Those Who Have No Time for Jesus and no Time for Others

(44) Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? (45) Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
