See the responses below where the literal translation of the word Jesus used for "hell" was actually a local trash dump on fire. To me this means that he is saying, "if you do or don't do XYZ, then you will be in a state of eternal hell on earth." In other words, if you kill someone, or basically do wrong in general, your personal world will become hell. You will stay up at night reliving all the F-ed up things you've done in your live. Your entire being will be weighed down by guilt, or depression, or negativity. As a result, you will not ever be able to fulfill/realize your true potential as a human (which is heaven). This is my interpretation of heave/hell at least.
