I will never deny my king! -Adain Thomas

“How important was the doctrine of hell to the martyrs?”

The martyrs focused on the present and future. No matter how hard you tried to break them, you couldn’t. Why? Because they knew what was waiting for them when they died. Paradise isn’t something to be taken lightly and the martyrs definitely didn’t. Just as heaven was real to them, so was hell and all of its agony. Despite the torture that they were put through on earth, they knew that it would never compare to the torture in hell. That is why they didn’t break as easily as others when asked to deny their king (Jesus).
