"Hope -- Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope! In the end, that is God’s greatest gift to us, the bedrock of this nation. A belief in things not seen. A belief that there are better days ahead,” (Barack Obama.) Without hope there is no power, and the organization, Eight Days of Hope, acknowledges that by assisting those that require support.

People who don’t accept Christ as their Savior will go to Hell. Revelation 20:15 affirms that fact that if anyone’s name isn’t written in the book of life, they will go to the fiery pit (BibleGateway). Salvation is the complete opposite of death (Kyrtatas). Matthew 13:42 explains what Hell will be like by saying, “and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (BibleGateway).” The apostle Paul said it best when he said that Hell is the separation of the presence of God. Revelation 21:8 describes Hell as a second death and proclaims who the inhabitants of Hell will be. It says, “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death

In the handout of the Fellowship Tract League, the Christian message of salvation through eternal life and faith in Jesus Christ is discussed, with the main point being that “eternal life is a free gift” because Jesus died for our sins. There are other Christian ideas such as choice and Jesus as the Son of God present in the text that work to convey this message of salvation.
