Question: “How is the Church the Body of Christ?”

Answer: The phrase “the Body of Christ” is a common New Testament metaphor for the Church (all those who are truly saved). The Church is called “one body in Christ” in Romans 12:5, “one body” in 1 Corinthians 10:17, “the body of Christ” in 1 Corinthians 12:27 and Ephesians 4:12, and “the body” in Hebrews 13:3. The Church is clearly equated with “the body” of Christ in Ephesians 5:23 and Colossians 1:24.

HELL IS WORSE THAN ALL OF LIFE’S SUFFERINGS!

(1) Hell was designed originally for Satan and his demons (Matthew 25:41Revelation 20:10).

(2) Hell will also punish the sin of those who reject Christ (Matthew 13:41,50Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).

(3) Hell is conscious torment.

  • Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth” 
  • Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched” 
  • Revelation 14:10 “he will be tormented with fire and brimstone”
