The verses below show the reality of God’s judgement, wrath, and eternal condemnation of the unrighteous.  From these verses, it is evident that not all people will be saved as the Universalist believes.  Also, it is evident that God’s judgement of the unrighteous will be an eternal condemnation and they will not be annihilated as the Annihilationist believe.

Before listing all the verses about God’s judgement from Romans through The Revelation, it is also important to see that Jesus also taught about hell.  He taught about hell in many passages, but I’ve shown only a few below.

Jesus’ teaching on Hell

Mathew 13:36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him saying,“Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” 13:37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 13:38 The field is the world and the good seed are the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels.13:40 As the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age.13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. 13:42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.  The one who has ears had better listen!

Mathew 25:41Then he will say  to those on his left, Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels! 25:42 For I was hungry and you gaveme nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink. 25:43 I was a stranger andyou did not receive me as a guest, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 25:44 Then they too will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not give you whatever you needed?’25:45 Then he will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’ 25:46 And these will depart into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

Romans 1
29 They are filled with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 senseless, covenant-breakers, heartless, ruthless.
32 Although they fully know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them.

Romans 2
3 And do you think, whoever you are, when you judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself, that you will escape God’s judgment?

5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed!
6 He will reward each one according to his works:
7 eternal life to those who by perseverance in good works seek glory and honor and immortality,
8 but wrath and anger to those who live in selfish ambition and do not obey the truth but follow unrighteousness.
9 There will be affliction and distress on everyone who does evil, on the Jew first and also the Greek,
10 but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, for the Jew first and also the Greek.
11 For there is no partiality with God.
12 For all who have sinned apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law.

Romans 3
9 What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin,
10 just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one,
11 there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God.

Romans 3
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 5
8 But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, because we have now been declared righteous by his blood, we will be saved through him from God’s wrath.

1 Corinthians 6
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, 6:10 thieves, the greedy,drunkards, the verbally abusive,  and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Ephesians 5
5 For you can be confident of this one thing: that no person who is immoral, impure, or greedy (such a person is an idolater) has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 5:6 Let nobody deceive you with empty words, for because of these things God’s wrath comes on the sons of disobedience.

2 Thessalonians 1
8 With flaming fire he will mete out punishment on those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9 They will undergo the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his strength,
10 when he comes to be glorified among his saints and admired on that day among all who have believed – and you did in fact believe our testimony.

1 Peter 4
5 They will face a reckoning before Jesus Christ who stands ready to judge the living and the dead.

16 But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear such a name.
17 For it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who are disobedient to the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the ungodly and sinners?

2 Peter 2
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment,
5 and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, when God brought a flood on an ungodly world,
6 and if he turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, having appointed them to serve as an example to future generations of the ungodly,
7 and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless men,
8 (for while he lived among them day after day, that righteous man was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)
9 – if so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment,
10 especially those who indulge their fleshly desires and who despise authority. Brazen and insolent, they are not afraid to insult the glorious ones,
11 yet even angels, who are much more powerful, do not bring a slanderous judgment against them before the Lord.

2 Peter 3
7 But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

Jude 1
7 So also Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring towns, since they indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire in a way similar to these angels, are now displayed as an example by suffering the punishment of eternal fire.

Revelation 20
11 Then I saw a large white throne and the one who was seated on it; the earth and the heaven fled from his presence, and no place was found for them.
12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Then books were opened, and another book was opened – the book of life. So the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds.
13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was judged according to his deeds.
14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death – the lake of fire.
15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, that person was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21
8 But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.”
