Different Levels In Hell

Do you think there are different levels of Hell? It seems unfair that a good person that does not believe in Jesus would spend the same torturous eternity with a child molestor or murderer.

well, here on earth we can talk like that and feel like that, but if you don't believe in Jesus and don't realize that he is God he will deny you too. Once you go to hell it is up to the devil what happens to you. He does not have anything nice about him. He doesn't care about us. Think about it. Jesus Is God, he loves us so much that he died on the Cross for our sins to be forgiven, so if a murderer finds Jesus and accepts him as the Son of God, our saver, our Heavenly Father will forgive. The sooner the better. Jesus Loves us, He died for us, the lease we can do is love him back. accept him and you will see/feel the positive in your life.

Richard, A-men. While we are on this earth we are to learn the difference between right from wrong, and we are to choose the right over the wrong. If we fail as in Eden, and we choose the wrong over the right, then our end cannot be heaven where all righteousness dwells: but if we choose disobedience, then instead our end would be the lake of fire and brimstone where are sinuousness cries. Being outside of Eden, the only way back to righteousness and back into the garden with God is to the cross, at the foot of the cross of Jesus is found forgiveness and grace and the new life in Christ.

1 Peter 3:19-20 . . . he went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water.

1 Peter 4:5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
[6] For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
[7] But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
[8] And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

MATTHEW 13:43 THE LORD SAYS THEN SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN

MATTHEW 25:46 AND THE LORD SAYS THE CURSED SHALL GO AWAY INTO EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT: BUT THE RIGHTEOUS INTO LIFE ETERNAL.

I JOHN 3:7 AS IT IS WRITTEN LITTLE CHILDREN, LET NO PERSON DECEIVE YOU: WHOEVER THAT DOES RIGHTEOUSNESS IS RIGHTEOUS, EVEN AS HE IS RIGHTEOUS.

JEREAMIAH 17:9 The heart is deceiful above all things, and desperately wicked:( UNSAVE MAN,MAN by nature) 17:10 I the LORD search the heart---- (GOD SAVES the elect person)
PSALM 15:12 HE that walketh uprightly, and WORKETH in Righousness and speaketh the truth in his Heart. ( after were save we do good works that are righteous, But we still have a body that lust after sin.These works have nothing to do with getting us save.)

Matthew 25:46 And the Lord says The cursed shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

---Eloy on 7/30/10


ROMANS 3:10 As it is written There are none righteous, no not one:
---RICHARD on 7/29/10


atheist, that is why Jesus has a hell, because he loves the righteous. If a God-hater bad-mouths God and spits in God's face, should he welcome that one into his heaven to continue that activity? If a Christ-hater mocks Christ and beats him and slays Christ on the cross, should he welcome that one into his heaven to continue that activity? "Truly truly I say to you, In no way will my enemy sit at my table, nor dip his hand in the same dish as me, says the Lord: In my kingdom there is none that lift their heal against me, nor mock, nor crown with thorns, nor slay upon tree, says the Lord."

Isaiah 26:14 They are dead,they shall not live:they are deceased,they shall not rise,therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to persish.
Roman 6:23 For the wages of sin is Death,But the gift of GOD is eternal life through JESUS CHRIST our LORD
Psalm 31:17 Let me not be ashamed O LORD for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed,and let them be Silent in the Grave
---RICHARD on 7/28/10




I believe there are different levels of torment in hell.... in the bible, Jesus states that it will be better for one to have not known him, than to know him and turn his back on him. In addition there is no great or little sin for all have fallen short of the glory of god! This implies that a good person can and will spend an eternity in hell if they do not recieve Christ just like a Rapist-Murderer who dosen't recieve him! However, here is the funny part, you can have been a rapist or murderer, repented truly, and turned your life over to Christ, to make heaven your home unlike the good person who was self righteous and said I am a good person!

Different levels of hell? There are different levels of heaven.
---calhoon on 12/4/09


Question:

Do you think there are different levels of Hell? It seems unfair that a good person that does not believe in Jesus would spend the same torturous eternity with a child molestor or murderer.

In God's eyes there are no GOOD persons. Self righteousness is probably the worse sin of all. The Pharisees thought because they kept the law they were good people too. Yet the Pharisees/Sadducees denied Christ.

And I can't find anywhere there are different levels of hell. There are no 5 star resorts in hell for good people.
---kathr4453 on 12/4/09


ShawnMT again that was very good.


Even Jesus had a will but came to do the will of His Father.

Those who say we have no free will or rather choice between obeying and disobeying God is not found in scripture. This is a man's philosophy.

God gave us the 10 commandments to SHOW us our sin. It was a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ. It teaches us we are sinners and have fallen short of the Glory of God.

Dr.LAW diagnoses our disease= DEATH

DR Jesus CURES our disease and heals and brings back LIFE.

God does not withhold a CURE for the disease of DEATH from anyone. However one must go to Dr. Jesus for that cure.

CHOOSE LIFE

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Brethren, There are only two types of "Wills"

1) There's God's Will, then ...

2) There's that which is not God's Will, and any way you slice it or by any name you wish to call it(Evils of sin, Freewill or Works of the devil), it's still not God's Will.

Everyone starts out blind to the Wisdom of Understanding God's Knowledgeable Word, do to sin & the Law entering into the world causing death by sin to abound & pass upon all men : and b/c of their blindness the world wishes to hold onto what they call "freewill" & claim it as being God given, when actually it's a product of nothing more than the disobedience & defiance of the Will of God's Word by one man !!
---Shawn.M.T on 12/3/09


Miche MarkV always said God did not give anyone free will? so how can he make up this dialogue for those who have rejected Christ?sounds like double talk to me. He says HE was forced to salvation and the rest exercised free will and THAT is why they are not saved.

What determines those who have free will and those who don't?

God never took me against my will. He asked me for my life...so my whole being would be me, including my will, emotions, mind, heart etc. I surrendered my will to HIM when I heard the Gospel. NOW and only NOW is my will to do His Will.

Who you are, your soul is where your will exists. To say otherwise is to say you are nothing more than an animal.

I undertand Markv, that was why I said God would say they didn't want to give up their own will and take up God's. And I believe God might point that out to them.
They heard the good news but refused it.
They think they know themselves better than the Potter that made them- God.
We can tell them the truth all day long but as long as they keep refusing the Holy Spirit, they will never learn.
They don't understand that all they have to do is give it all up to God because he knows best.
God knows his creation better than it knows itself.
---miche3754 on 12/3/09


Miche, hello again, the reason I made that comment is that people do not want God to interfer with their rights. They want to hold on to free will, their ability to have control over their lives. So when they find themselve in hell, they will say, Lord, why didn't you take free will away from me, look what I have done. I would gladly allow you to interfer with my life and bring me to repentance in order to have a second chance. But it is too late. No more second chances.
"Without God interfering and changing his heart, no amount of free will will save him."
---MarkV. on 12/3/09


"I believed in free will, why didn't you intervened and saved me? I would gladly give my free will now if I can have a second chance" They knew God but did not honor Him as God.
---MarkV. on 12/3/09

I believe God's answer to them would be this-
"I gave you the choice when I called out to you and you did not listen. I told you no man is promised tomorrow and salvation is today if you would have just turned from your will and sinful ways, to MY will and I would teach you all things if you would have just listened and believed what MY word said, but you chose not to believe, you chose not to receive the one I sent, My son, Jesus Christ".
---miche3754 on 12/3/09


Miche, hello again. Here is what you said,
"Markv,
I believe in free will and am saved by God, so are you saying I am going to hell?"

Answer= No.
Why? because you said God saved you. If you had said that you were saved because of your free will then I would have a problem because you would be saying because of your free will you were saved, and contradicting that with God saved you. It's either one or the other. So no, you are not going to hell. I will explain my comment later.
---MarkV. on 12/3/09

Just as there are levels of reward, there are levels of punishment. See Matt10:15, ll:22 & 24, 18:6 Mark 6:11, Luke 10:12, 14. Hell, Hades, Gehenna, Tartarus are separate from Sheol which tells me that there are levels of everlasting punishment. Of greatest importance is to understand that Hell in general is a literal place for unbelievers. It is the final destination for those who are perishing and as followers of Christ, we are responsible to speak the word of God to all of creation.
---jody on 12/3/09


Markv,
I believe in free will and am saved by God, so are you saying I am going to hell?
Know that God DOES NOT want an unwilling servant. THAT would be salvation by works. To come to God unwillingly is going to the back door!
You should choose your words wisely because as you judge so shall you be judged by God.

Back to subject,
The word says NONE are good, not one.
If you told a white lie, you have sinned.
If you even stole a penny, you sinned.

So, that means you are a liar and a thief at heart.
And that means you are going to hell unless you repent of your sins and believe God. Period.
---miche3754 on 12/3/09


People who are separated from God right now would love nothing more then to be separated from God after death. But that is not the case at all. God will be there doing the punishing. They are as guilty as those mentioned by Eloy. No amount of crying will help. Those in hell will respond to God and say, "I believed in free will, why didn't you intervened and saved me? I would gladly give my free will now if I can have a second chance" They knew God but did not honor Him as God.
---MarkV. on 12/3/09


One aspect of real hell is separation from God, eternally. The question isn't really about hell's physics but is this:
Why would God allow someone in heaven if they are raging with hate, having aligned with Satan's envy and defiance toward Jesus's death and total authority.
You wouldn't keep someone in/with your family & children like that.

Yes, there are different levels of hell. What constitutes a GOOD PERSON in your eyes? The bible tells us: ALL have sinned and fell short of the Glory of God.

We are sinners who are willing to repent for our sins and accept the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from our sins. Those who reject Jesus and what He did for us is NOT a good person.

Would you want someone to live in your home who was a murderer or child molestor? Neither does God.
---Donna on 11/23/09


Shouldn't the question be:

"Why would a loving 'god' have a 'hell' at all?"
---atheist on 11/23/09


the unbelievers are annihilated, after they are tormented DAY AND NIGHT,(the sun still exists) to the ages of the ages (that is until christ puts all enemies under his feet)
the last enemy to be destroyed is death
if the 2nd death is neverending torment then how can death be destroyed if it always exists?
ALL enemies including death and sin will be destroyed out of existence
answers anyone?
if the new heavens and earth do not have any NIGHT, how can sinners still be burning, considering there is no more need of the sun?
why do people deliberately ignore the meaning of "ages" (aionios)?
---glen on 11/23/09


and the Devil, who is leading them astray, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are the beast and the false prophet, and they shall be tormented DAY AND NIGHT -- to the AGES OF THE AGES

as we can see, day and night still exists, it is not the eternal age which comes AFTER christs reign on earth. that is when night no longer exists

15And the seventh messenger did sound, and there came great voices in the heaven, saying, `The kingdoms of the world did become [those] of our Lord and of His Christ, and he shall reign to the ages of the ages!'

Hell on earth exists. But the hell Gehenna will exist some day in the future. But the Saints will not have their worship of GOD mixed with the sounds of the wicked in tormen.

Rom 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death, but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The wicked do not have eternal life. They will die the second death. Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Where are the wicked given eternal life in the scriptures?

2)
Trying to merge mortality(death) of the soul with mortality of the body is ignorance. Both are not the same. Spiritual life and immortality is being in the presence of God, spritual death is being apart from the Lord.

Do you forget we are told people were already spiritually dead while they were walking the Earth?


Colossians 2:13
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ.
---Matthew_from_LA on 10/10/07


3)
1 Timothy 5:6
6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

Luke 15:32
But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found.'

When you were lost you were spiritually dead.
---Matthew_from_LA on 10/10/07


3)
1 Timothy 5:6
6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

Luke 15:32
... because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found.'

When you were lost you were spiritually dead. SO if spiritual death means you "go poof" then why is your soul still alive when you were dead? Those in heaven will be with God and those in hell will be without God just as the lost are without God. This is spirutal death.

4)
The lost have no life in their soul because they are without God. In talking about spritual life and death we should keep it spiritual and not physical.

Matthew 8:22
But Jesus told him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead."



If you are dead how are you alive? Jesus is talking about spiritual death.
---Matthew_from_LA on 10/10/07


I have been saved for over 21 years now. I believed in the traditional view of hell for all that time. After much research, I know annihilationism is absolutely scriptural. I looked at all the texts that speak of the fate of the unsaved, I see that their fate is complete destruction (the second death), not life or eternal existence there. (Matt 10:28, Rev. 20:15, Phil 3:19, Rom 6:23, James 4:12.) The wages of sin is death, not eternal torment!
---doug on 10/10/07


Destruction is indeed their just punishment. It is capital punishment forever, while the righteous inherit life forever. Yes, hell is eternal (for the devil), but unbelievers perish there (John 3:16) they are destroyed (Matt 10:28). This is what is called the conditionalist view. The lost are absolutely not immortal. The only people who gain immortality are those who fulfill the condition in scripture, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Must read Romans 2:7, 1 Cor 15:53.
---doug on 10/10/07


Why do we need to seek immortality (Rom 2:7) if all have it? They obviously dont! That means most will die and not live forever! (John 6:51) Believers are the only ones who get immortality at the resurrection. (2 Timothy 1:10) All others are destroyed in hell after the judgment. (Matt 10:28, Rev. 20:14-15) There are many, many more scriptures to show this is the biblical view of the lost. For more information today, do a web search on Conditional Immortality.

I am starting a study on the different levels of rewards in Heaven and different degrees of punishment in hell. The Bible talks about the different crowns the saints will receive in Heaven, so it seems only right that there would be different degrees of punishment in hell. What is your opinion on this subject? Hope to hear from someone!
---Lavada on 10/6/07


I'm an annihilist. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels - i think you get thrown into the firey lake and your life is extinguished (eternally gone) yes I know but I like my theology better and I think it seems more like Christ - God gets no glory from people being tormented forever.

it would be different if all actually got to meet Jesus and decide -like Satan did.

Levels? The pit of groping hands. From there, the levels are based on deception.

I believe there are different degrees of punishment in hell. Matthew 23:14 and Mark 12:40 says "...will receive greater condemnation". The whole of man's problem is sin, which is why Jesus died on the Cross. If a person dies in their sin, i.e. without having trusted Christ, they will go to hell and amazingly it is their works that will be judged. God is righteous in sending people who reject Christ to hell, for such a horrific price was paid by Him on the Cross in giving His life for sin.
---Helen_5378 on 10/11/06


I believe there are levels of hell.I've watched Perry Stone's teachings on hell.I believe that a nice person who died without Christ won't suffer as badly as a murderer.. at first.
In hell, there is no God. Sin continues and will drive a good person insane.Sin grows in hell meaning, every good person will become just as bad as the murderers.The lake of fire is the final judgement over hell and sin.

#2--Note, He didn't name the sins committed. It doesn't matter...big sins, little sins..it all SIN to God" For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point is guilty of all."

Not all men have an equal opportunity to believe on JESUS, the only way to eternal life. FEW stripes in hell, would satisfy God's justice compatibly with scripture.

# 1-Linda and Rebecca D.-- Think you both are missing the point. Rebecca quotes PART of Luke 12:47-48 but misses the main part. The "beating" is a foregone conclusion, but Jesus said "But he that KNEW NOT, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with FEW stripes". He didn't say that nice sinners will be beaten less than nasty sinners. He said those who "knew not" would receive fewer stripes.
---Donna2277 on 8/16/06


We can all trust in this that our loving God has arranged opportunities to reveal his character to every lost person. His judgement is fair and righteous. He knows the heart. We don't truly know who is good or bad do we. We need to trust him on this matter and know that if someone we love dies apart from God, that he did everything he could to save that life. We need to be at peace with his justice.
---Linda32708 on 8/15/06


If a person has never heard of Jesus Christ, then Jesus will judge their heart, how good the heart was toward people. that is why he gave us a consceience, because some won't hear about Jesus. In Luke 12 this is a parable, when God tells us to do something and we don't, we will get a beaten from God. (not litteraly) God's word is shaper than a two hedged sword, it cuts both ways. the word cuts deep when not doing what the word says to do.
---Rebecca_D on 8/15/06


Jack--Thanks for confirming what I always believed about Hell (against all doctrine I've been taught).

Rebecca D.-- The point is not whether one was a murderer or an unbelieving do-good-er. To me, the question is, did the person ever HEAR the truth? Did he reject Jesus after many chances to accept Him? Or did he perhaps never hear of Jesus?. God is just. He doesn't favor the child of Bible reading Christians above the child of illiterate Buddhists. And what chance does an Iranian Muslim child have?

How can there be different levels of torment in hell? Anyone whom hasn't been born again and isn't abiding in Jesus always, is going to hell. It doesn't matter if that person is a good person and has never commited a crime or if the person is a murderer or etc. hell is hell, and it is for sinners.

Dante got his figure of a many-storied hell--and heaven--in his DIVINE COMEDY from Luke 12:46-48.

To say that this was what the RCC taught at the time is to take Lewis's SCREWTAPE LETTERS and say it's a 20th century Anglican statement of demonology and moral theology.

I know of no scripture that states, or even hints, at there being different levels of hell or different types of punishment there. Mrs. Morgan, do you have scriptures that will help here? Regarding 'good people' being with a 'child molester or murderer' just remember that we will be keeping company with some of those in Heaven. Scripture teaches us that it is our acceptance of Jesus' sacrifice for our sins (as a gift) that saves us and what is in our past will remain in the past.

For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."

Although it does not specifically say so, the Bible does seem to indicate that there might be different levels of punishment in Hell. In Revelation 20:11-15,the people are judged "according to what they had done as recorded in the books"(Revelation 20:12). All the people at this judgment, though, are thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:13-15). Whatever the case,being thrown into a slightly less hot portion of the lake of fire is not consolation to those who are still doomed for eternity.

No there is no different levels of hell. Hell is hell. Jesus tells us if we are not born again we will perish in hell. It doesn't matter if you take a good person if they don't have Jesus in their heart they will go to hell just as the murderer whom didn't repent. It is fair because Christ has warned us what is going to happen if we don't believe in him.
