Although sin and death came to all of mankind through the sin of Adam in the Garden of Eden, God has provided a way whereby each and every one of us might be reborn spiritually alive.If we are, we will spend eternity with God.2  If not, we will spend eternity in the lake of fire separated from Him.3

Located just outside of Jerusalem is a ravine that was known as the "valley of Hinnom."  It was a terrible place where pagan deities were worshiped; a place where children were sacrificed to the pagan god Molech.4  Eventually this ravine became a place where the refuse of Jerusalem was dumped; a garbage dump that burned continuously.  It became a graphic picture of the final abode of both fallen angels and the unredeemed of mankind; a place of unquenchable fire.5

Not only is the lake of fire described as a place of unquenchable fire, but it is also described as a place of extreme torment.  It's a place located away from the earth (in the outer darkness) where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.6  It's the place where fallen angels and the unredeemed of mankind (the unsaved) will spend all eternity separated from God and others.7
