Weep If You Don't Witness
Someone charismatic recently told me that the passage in Scripture referring to "weeping and gnashing of teeth" isn't describing Hell - it's where Christians who aren't witnessing to others go during the 1000-year reign of the Millenium. Is this true? Anyone else heard of this?

I've never heard that one. But, what a deception. The WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH is as it's usually interpreted. It describes what people are doing in Hell RIGHT NOW. Don't let the Devil water down the horrors of Hell. He'll do anything to get people to dismiss the seriousness of Hell so they may continue minimizing their sins and "not worry about that 'myth' called Hell", in hopes that they'll end up there themselves someday. The Devil is such a CREEP.

Drew this statement,"and they said yes but that Catholics were condemned, spirit-filled or not." of these people is absolutely wrong, and shows their ignorance.
However their teaching about""weeping and gnashing of teeth" is so radically different than anything I've ever heard is my intention is to return to it. For more study.

Drew2902 - This is FALSE Teaching, it's a LIE.

Dear Drew: Where in the world did your charismatic friend come up with this interpretation of Scripture? On this blog we represent many denominations, but never have I heard anything like this from any of us. Bruce tells it like it is via Scriptural confirmation and I am sure others will give you references also. So rest easily my friend.

"Weeping and Gnashing of teeth is referring to Hell. "Fires that shall never be quenched" "Worm" [that] dieth not, "outer darkness." These and similar terms were used by the rabbis of Jesus' Day in their descriptions of the fate of the wicked. Jesus spoked of unquenchable fire. It is not a fire that burns and burns but consumes nothing. [In the day of vengeance of our God--blood will flow as high as horses bridles!

Anyone making such a claim demonstrates a profound lack of understanding of salvation and scripture. Is this a "Catholic charismatic" group? It sounds like some kind of a "purgatory" kind of thing.
Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

Oh yes - they weren't Catholic Charismatics. I specifically told them that their interpretation sounded like the Catholic idea of purgatory, and they said yes but that Catholics were condemned, spirit-filled or not. Basically, I don't want to date someone who says they are "spirit-filled" for these very reasons - too much emphasis on tongues and spiritual gifts, not on Scripture.

The people who shared this were the parents of a woman from N.Z. that I met on this site. I flew there over Christmas and was treated well initially, but when I started getting fearful of these people I was asked to leave by their daughter, and she said she never wanted to talk to me again. I feel really depressed about this now. But I also believe the Lord protected me by causing the relationship to end.

Charismatic means gifted. We are all charismatic if we know Jesus. But the person who told you this strange doctrine isn't showing too much charisma.
