According to many songs and party people, having a lot of fun is “raising Hell.” According to Jesus: first, this is profanity, because Hell cannot be “raised,” it is for damned souls for Eternity, a.k.a. “the condemnation of hell” (Matthew 23:33); secondly, it should not be “raised” for it is described as “torments” without a drop of water for relief (Luke 16:23-24); and third, a maimed body in life is better than the next life in “hell fire” (Mark 9:42-48). Since “Hell” cannot nor should not be “raised,” and is eternal torment: how much “fun” is it to say that? To “raise Hell” in life only lowers someone’s soul into it forever! Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16 NKJV).
