The Echo and the Insufficiency of Hell

You can now listen to John Piper's first message at Resolved.

He spoke about hell, beginning with 5 things we need to believe about it:

  1. It is eternal
  2. It involves the suffering of those who are there.
  3. It is conscious suffering.
  4. God inflicts this suffering.
  5. It is righteous.

Then he explained how hell is an echo of God's glory. And finally he made clear that no one can be saved simply by not wanting to go to hell.

There's no manuscript for this message, but you can read the sermon series that this message was based on. It includes much of the same content, including most of the quotes he used.
