 Will there literally be a burning fire in Hell? - ChristianAnswers.Net
n Mark 9, notice that the Lord Jesus repeats three times about Hell, "where the worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched." Now, I personally feel that it is a great waste of time to quibble and argue with people about whether it is literal, real fire or not.
And it seems there is some reason for saying that it need not necessarily be a real fire, or that this is a literal, real worm that is referred to here.
But it is interesting to note that one of the Bible words used to describe Hell is Gehenna, and that referred to the garbage dump of the valley of Hen, where there was fire constantly burning, and the worm and maggots never lacked something to eat.
