As mentioned in my last post in 2 Thessalonians, which you can read here, I wanted to stop for a moment and share a complete post answering the question of does 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 teach that all people (including those who have never heard the gospel) are going to hell if they have not obeyed the gospel?
Let me first dig deeper into the exegesis.
The text clearly states that God will pass out vengeance upon two groups. This vengeance will include “everlasting destruction away from the presence of the Lord”, or what we typically call hell. The inclusion of the reference to the coming of Jesus, “that day,” and Jesus being “revealed” from heaven (1:7, 10), are further evidence that we are talking about the final judgment and God’s eternal punishment for the wicked in hell.
