Synonymous with God’s wrath, “fire and brimstone” refers to the gruesome fate of the unfaithful. The “fire” portion is obvious enough, but “brimstone” is just another word for sulphur. Why, you might ask, does God’s wrath smell like rotten eggs? Because when lightning strikes the earth, it gives off sulphur dioxide. In other words, all that divine punishment you’ve earned will probably take the fiery form of a deadly bolt of lightning from on high. And if that doesn’t encourage good behaviour, then we don't know what will.
