Hell’s Kitchen

July 23rd, 2006

“…a punishment of eternal fire”

(Jude 7)

Turn on the television these days and you are liable to encounter a new program called, “Hell’s Kitchen.” The producers of this program have used a biblical word (“hell”) to gather an audience. However, this tongue-in-cheek usage, fails to compare with the Christian doctrine of eternal punishment.

1. The program’s name, “Hell’s Kitchen” is a humorous parody of the Christian doctrine of ultimate reality (Jude 7, 13).

2. “Hell’s Kitchen” is driven by economic factors, while the Christian doctrine of eternal punishment is driven by Satanic factors (Revelation 22:2,10,15).

3. “Hell’s Kitchen” is a faddish program which lasts for an hour a week; but, “hell” (gehenna) will last throughout eternity (Mark 9:48).

4. Hollywood prefers a non-Christian usage of the term, but the meaning of gehenna will not be deferred by a writer’s guild; for, the Lord has spoken (Matthew 10:28).

So, modern man has once again found a use for the place, “the valley of Hinnom” (2 Chron. 28:3; 33:6)—or, so they think!
