Pt.2 It is an analogy of the moral compromising & toil of a mindset tormented, frustrated & burning with unfulfilled desires, a mentality that consumes the arrogant, narrow minded & self centered individual bound in his or her carnality. This "Hell" is meant to purge that ones conscious state & attitude of those undesirable traits which subjects the inflicted as well as those subjected to them to unpleasant, incessant pain, loss, & hardship.

Gehenna other than referencing a deep valley in Jerusalem that was basically a garbage dump for the disposal & burning of waste of all kinds including the dead bodies of animals & the discarded among men, was used figuratively to represent a state of mind or disposition of character that is considered worthless, detrimental or oppositional as concerning its intended or preferred purpose & destined to perish. Cont. Pt.2

Yes this is an informative blog definately. The meaning of Gehenna is translated as HELL. But I say unto you, That wosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgement; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, [ which is an Aramaic word to mean utmost contempt and scorn, as scoundrel or wicked rascal.] shall be in danger of the council; but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of (GEHENNA) hell and fire.

WE as Christians are to have the ministy of reconciliation, NOT eternal torment...
THE GOOD NEWS is our duty to preach.

Hell is hell to me. Gehenna signifies endless punishment. It's part of the Gospel message to the world.
Book of Acts contains the record of the apostolic preaching, and the history of the first planting of the Church among the Jews and Gentiles. There is no mention of Gehenna. In thirty years of missionary effort, these men of God, addressing people of all characters and nations, do not threaten them with the torments of Gehenna, but allude to it in a distant manner.

The Savior and James are the only persons in all the New Testament who use the word. John the Baptist, who preached to the most wicked of men, did not use it once. Paul wrote fourteen epistles, and doesn't mention it. Peter does not name it, or Jude; John, who wrote the gospel, three epistles, and the Book of Revelations. Gehenna or hell reveals the endless woe. They knew its meaning, and believed it a part of Christ's teaching, but it is not used a hundred or a thousand times.

Gehenna occurs twelve times.. Christ, in a ministry of three years, used it less than six times.

Gehenna, moral corruption.

James says of the tongue, "It defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell" (Gehenna). Gehenna, that place of filth and corruption and perpetual fires, foul passions and corrupt appetites, set on fire by a foul and seductive tongue, which inflames in turn, to the defilement of the whole body.
---Raine on 4/29/07

Matt. 15, 27, Gehenna or hell, the whited sepulcher, "full of dead men's bones, and all uncleanness," are fearful symbols of the moral foulness of the "Scribes, Pharisees, and hypocrites," Jesus was addressing. "Two-fold more the child of hell," signifying that they made their converts two-fold more corrupt than themselves.

The valley of Hinnnom. Gehenna is a deep, narrow to the South of Jerusalem where the idolatrous Jews offered their children in sacrifice to Molech 2 Chr 28:3, 33:6. This valley afterwords became the common receptable for all the refuse of the city. Bodies of aniamls and of criminals were cast and consumed by fire kept always burning. It thus in process of time became the image of the place of everlasting destruction. It is used by God in Mt 5:22,29-30, 10:28, 18:9, 23:15,33, Mk 9:43-47, Lk 12:5. CONT:

CONT: Hell. It is called the unquenchable fire Mt 3:12, everlasting burnings, devouring fire Isa 33:14, everlasting fire 25:41, eternal Isa 33:14, Rev 20:10, the body suffers Mt 5:29, the soul suffers Mt 10:28, everlasting destruction 2 Th1:9,

I'm not in support of the destruction of the human soul in Geheena or any other hell.

Jesus came so that souls would not have to burn in hell. I don't know of any Scriptures that support the eternal torture of the human soul. That is not what Jesus Christ is about. There are warnings about hell. Hell is very real, but Jesus came to set the captives free.
