But there is one thing that is hard to fathom in the World Trade Center attack. After the planes hit the towers in New York the people in the floors above the fire where trapped. I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures of people jumping out of the upper floors to escape the fire and smoke. The thing that really shakes me up about this is the height from which they jumped. I’ve been to the top floor of the World Trade Center, and I’m not afraid of heights, but it made me feel weak in the knees when I went up to window and looked down. I can’t imagine anyone jumping from such heights but the alternative was burning to death. Jesus describes hell as a place where people burn but never burn up.

Mark 9:48

48where "`their worm does not die,

and the fire is not quenched.’
