Cast Out Into the Outer Darkness.

weight_room“But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”  Mtt 8:12

The Bible uses many word pictures to give us a glimpse of hell:

  • outer darkness Mtt 8
  • a blazing furnace Mtt 13
  • the fire of hell Mtt 18
  • weeping and gnashing of teeth Mtt 24

The other day, while working out at the local fitness center, it became clear to me why hell is depicted as “outer darkness”, as I watched men and women, more than once, look at themselves in the mirror. This was beyond looking for the aspect of exercise… This was more of the “the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life”. (I John 2:16)

“Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, Nor are the eyes of man ever satisfied.” Proverbs 27:20

Hell will be outer darkness where you will neither see your own body or anyone else. It suggest loneliness and the additional pain of a life, while healthy, spent in vanity and lust.
