People that does Not receive The 1 & Only Salvation of God will in ever lasting torment.
Even some of those that have received The 1 & Only salvation of God due to being disobedient will also be in ever lasting torment.

Yes. The word of GOD (the Bible) SAYS SO. (Rev. 20:11-15)
---Leon on 4/15/07

First, to keep in line with the word of God, we must admit that ONLY things of God are everlasting, without time,i.e. eternal. Everything else is chaff to be destroyed. The lake of fire is eternal because it is the fire of God. What is thrown in is chaff. So, the fire burns forever (of God), what is thrown in is consumed (chaff). What is left is that which was of God before time, (us).

Mod: Here's 2 scriptures: Rom 6:23 The wages of sin is DEATH. Mal 4:1 ... burn them up ....leave them neither root nor branch. I can't equate death with eternal torture. Death is escape from pain and suffering. I also can't equate eternal torture with a loving Father.

Revelations20:12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books... and each person was judged according to what he had done. 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Romans 6:23 - For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:26 - The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
James 1:15 - Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, WHEN IT IS FINISHED, bringeth forth death.
Revelation 2:11 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the SECOND DEATH.

DEATH VIA lake of fire.

revelation 20:15
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
---a_friend on 11/10/05

My point is, Rev.20 DOES talk about the lake of fire. It DOES say who will burn forever. The Bible does NOT say that sinners and those who don't accept Jesus will burn forever. The lake of fire will be the second death (dead, not burning for eternity) for the unsaved. So yes, mod, I had already included scripture, but several other "yes" votes from the blue states have not.
---casey on 11/10/05

Rev.20:15 that "anyone's name not found written the book of life, was thrown into the lake of fire".
God keeps books,judgement is according the deeds in those books. Vss.11-14.
Rev. 21:27, those who are outside the new Jerusalem, unclean. Rev.22:14-15, the blessed the dogs,etc.
Romans 2 God judges righteous judgement according to a persons understanding, and deeds.
God judges those outside of Christ according to their deeds. He is a righteous God and a righteous Judge.
---James on 11/10/05

"if your not following Jesus, then you are following Satan" AGREED " therefore, you will be with him in the lake of fire burning forever." Scripture? IMHO, based on scripture, the burning lake of fire for sinners and those who choose to not follow Christ, is false doctrine. Mod - why are you not asking people to prove their "Yes" answers with scripture?

Moderator - By that response, I understand then you don't have any scriptures to back up your belief?
---casey on 11/10/05

hey!!... Just because someone doesn't believe in Jesus, that doesn't mean that is with Satan! My father was a atheist, but he was one of the most kind and altruist persons I have ever known. He was a doctor and he always helped the poor and homeless without expecting anything back.
---Alex on 11/10/05

casey, if your not following Jesus, then you are following therefore, you will be with him in the lake of fire burning forever.
---a_friend on 11/10/05

I see that a lot of people say 'yes' without specifying scripture. WHERE? Where does it say that sinners/unrepentent will burn in hell fire for eternity? I'll believe it if I read it in my KJV Bible.
I do see that a lake of fire will burn for eternity, but the Bible only specifies the following occupants will be tormented forever... satan, beast and false prophet.
---casey on 11/10/05

yes, for all eternity.
---Eloy on 11/10/05

After re-reading the question... People have a choice to follow God or satan. Those who don't accept Jesus will not go to Heaven. In that sense, YES, they will "spend their life" in the lake of fire, where they will meet 'second death'. So to clarify, they will spend their 'life' in hell fire, but not eternity. (all from Rev. 20)
---casey on 11/10/05

Absolutely!there Are many Bible Scriptures Addressing that very fact.

I disagree. The eternal lake of fire is reserved for satan, not sinners. Sinners will be judged and punished.
If you are in Heaven, and you know that your Grandmother is burning in Hell for eternity, how will you ever think that God is a just God? Hitler burns forever, yet so does little Billy who was a good kid but once took someone's crayon without asking? Nah, I don't buy it. God LOVES, and eternal hell fire for sinners is not a God I would love back. Rev 20:9,10,14,15.

Moderator - What is the punishment for sinners then? Scriptures please.
---casey on 11/10/05

Abby; Did you say the rest of their "life"? The " gift" of God is eternal life! The wages of sin is "death" They spend eternity "dead!" Shaz there's also an earth and 3 different "hells" sheol/hades,gehenna and tartarus!
---1st_cliff on 11/10/05

YES ! Have you ever heard the teaching that the Lake of Fire is the sun?--mima11/10/2005
---mima on 11/10/05

Luke18:17 - you MUST accept kingdom of God as if like a child or you will never enter the kingdom of God.
what would be use of living for God if we did not have the hope of spending eternity with him?
There is a heaven and a hell. God has prepared a place for us in heaven BUT we must accept him and his death on the cross in order to get there. In Luke it talks of hell and what will be like. Once there we do not have chance to take Christ. There will be no more chances.
