rhonda- Beware of woman's words changing Scripture verses (yours). You see that Jesus said "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment." If they are dead, they are unaware and unpunished. But the wicked will be fully aware that they are in hell fire and tormented by it. Jesus Christ preached about hell-fire so that it won't be a surprise to any of the wicked if they find themselves in it. The wicked need to forsake their wicked ways, repent and live unto God. People like you don't want to read or hear about hell for some reason. You ought to find out why instead of denying the facts. Surely the Holy Ghost could help you understand the truth about hell.
---Betty on 6/1/09


jerry- You are afraid of hell, aren't you? Therefore you deny that it is possible you could go there and be eternally tormented in hell-fire. I really think you have been walking and reading under a cloud of something. I think it affected your reasoning faculties. Jesus said the wicked would go into everlasting punishment, therefore they must be alive to be able to feel it and be tormented by it. Otherwise it is not punishment. You should pray to receive the Holy Ghost. He will open up your eyes to the plain facts about hell.
---Betty on 6/1/09


Mima, I'm surprised that after all the time you've spent in the ministry you still don't know Eccl. 3.19 "Man's fate is like that of the animals..as one dies so dies the other,all have the same breath(spirit)man has NO advantage over the animal,all come from dust and to dust return" (no mention here of BODIES).
Also you can't differentiate Gehenna from Hades!
---1st_cliff on 6/1/09


Tom, you are correct. What is a custom to do when someone doesn't agree with Scripture is to confuse the issue by using a literal meaning of a word instead of the correct meaning of that word in the context for which it is written. You said, that life and death in the physical is not the same as life and death in the Spiritual sense. Jerry and most others, that Betty mentioned, use passages out of context to confuse the believer on a heretical view. Pretty soon they are doubting everything.
What good would eternal punishment mean if they were dead? They have to feel the punishment for it to be a punishment, otherwise they would be glad they are dead and not feeling anything. They will wish they could die.
---Mark_V. on 6/1/09


The teaching that there is no hell that when you are dead you are drad like a dog is dead just dead is completely erroneous and unbilical. The Bible speaks of a lake of fire and those who are cast in that lake and who will suffer eternal torment. Is there a hell? There is, and it is to be avoided at all cost. The cost to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was great our cost, mine and yours is very light, the acceptance of what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us and total dependency on what he has done will give us salvation!
---mima on 6/1/09




to understand death,or life one must realize that being alive and breathing is not really life,and being dead and not breathing or death of the flesh is not really death. The life and death God speaks of is spiritual life,and spiritual death,very different from the physical which apparently to many here dont realize.
---tom2 on 6/1/09


Betty, Betty, Betty! Are you beyond reasoning? Life and death are not the same thing! You keep insisting that Jesus said the wicked will live forever under torture. HE DID NOT! He said they would suffer "eternal punishment." There is a BIG difference! Had you bothered to Read Jude 1:7, you'd have noticed that Sodom and Gomorrha suffered the vengance of "eternal fire." They are NOT on fire today, but the EFFECT of their punishment is eternal!

Did you notice the quotation marks around the "calling God a liar" remark? Those were YOUR words thrown back at you.
---jerry6593 on 6/1/09


Matthew 25:46 "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

RIGHTEOUS into life eternal

YOU are TOLD wicked receive eternal life and ADD this to GODS Word ...NOTICE ***RIGHTEOUS into eternal life***

does NOT state wicked ONLY righteous

you don't SEE THIS? ...brainwashed by slick false ministers you lovingly adore and worship every week screaming hell fire at the pulpit

when you stop listening to lies of men who pervert twist and ADD to Word of God and READ Gods Word as it is without ADDING to it you will SEE TRUTH

FOLLOW God in Truth and Spirit ...his WORD NEVER changes only ideas of men adding to Gods Word CHANGE
---Rhonda on 5/31/09


jerry- I quoted Jesus Christ on 5-29-09. You are disputing His own words. I never called God a liar and it is weird that you & some others try to frame me up as if I said things I didn't. I notice it is usually sabbath keepers and anti-Holy Ghost people who do that.

Jesus said everlasting punishment. If they are dead when they are everlastingly punished, how can they know they are punished? The bottom line is the wicked will be fully aware of the torment of the flames of fire forever.
---Betty on 5/31/09


Betty: "Jesus Christ said there is eternal life in hell for the wicked"

No, He didn't!

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is DEATH,

DEATH and eternal life are not the same thing. It is the result of the burning fire that is eternal - not the fire itself (c.f. Jud 1:7)

"Take my advice and don't call God a liar.
---jerry6593 on 5/30/09




rhonda- Jesus Christ said there is eternal life in hell for the wicked:

Matthew 25:41 "Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire...."

Matthew 25:46 "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."

Take my advice and don't call God a liar.
---Betty on 5/29/09


Yes the wicked will burn in hell. Burn up in hell and become ashes that is.

Mal 4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts.

Gehenna was for the destruction of the dead carcases.

Isa 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
---Samuel on 5/29/09


A volcano is alive with fire and spews out hot lava randomly every so many years. The earths core is always illustrates as a source of heat and the fire that comes from there can't be quenched by even the deepest of seas.

If that ain't the bottomless pit where the devil, non belivers and hosts are going, Your bind, and need a lesson in reality, Hell is a place that has three diferent places, Sheol, Ghenna, Hades.

The bottomless pit the final ressing place of the devil/hosts and the wicked is visible for all to see!

Does Jesus' description of hell sound like a hole in the ground? No
*****

NO MORE than ETERNAL LIFE GIVEN to wicked

problem with religious christianity is they are TOLD what to believe

they adore their ministers hanging on their every word as they preach about a "hell fire"

YET these FALSE ministers DISMISS Gods Holy Word describing ETERNAL LIFE

either men lied or God lied

can't have it BOTH ways

Gods Word states ETERNAL LIFE IS A GIFT GIVEN to saved

nothing supports eternal life for wicked not one verse
---Rhonda on 5/28/09


1stcliff- What I described was hell. That's what the Bible calls it. Jesus talked about hell-fire. It is a place where you literally burn. The french name for fish is poison. When you go to an American restaraunt, do you want to order poison? Or would you rather use the word fish? They both mean the same. Luke 8:31 Jesus casted out some demons "And they besought Him that He would not command them to go out into the deep," (Abyss, bottomless pit). In Luke 8:28 a demon begged Jesus to torment him not. Just before Jesus Christ returns, the bottomless pit will opened, "And there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace...." (Rev. 9:2)
---Betty on 5/28/09


Betty, Not so fast there,What you described is "Gehenna" not hades or sheol.
Look up Gehenna and see why Jesus used this as an "illustration"!

In the end hell and death will be cast into the Lake of Fire. Those eternal souls who by their NATURE choose freely to follow Satan know (or risk) this fate. God is only giving them what they wish for. They decide, based on the lies that they love to live by. They do not live by God so they will not be with God in eternity. They do not wish to be with God and they hate Christians and would not want to be with them for eternity. It is their choice. It is also what was written for them. It is evil to make out that God is punishing them for nothing. He (Jesus) judges everyone, very fairly. Nobody will be able to say 'That's not fair' and have a temper tantrum.
---frances008 on 5/27/09


Why God will choose some for Salvation and others for the Fire is something we will probably never know. Would you think it better if God rewarded the wicked? Perhaps if God punished the good or the persecuted, or those who never had any money all their lives you (being evil-minded) would say He was okay. God is in control whether you like it or not. He judges by punishing the wicked and rewarding the good, every person without exception.
---frances008 on 5/27/09


Some evil people blame God. What more could God do to prevent people from going to Hell (the place made for Satan and his angels) than to WARN them through the prophets and historical events of the O.T. and then through the N.T. Warning after warning. Would it be a true God who after giving people so many warnings, went against His Word and let those who heeded him not, enter into Glory? No. Then you would attack God for being a liar. God desires every man woman and child of the devil to come to repentance, but they belong, lock stock and barrel to Satan.
---frances008 on 5/27/09


1stcliff- Are you blindfolded? Jesus talked about Hell Fire. Matthew 5:22 "...but whosoever shall say, Thou fool shall be in danger of hell fire." Matthew 18:9 Jesus said, "...it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire." Mark 9:43-44 Jesus said, "...it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched. Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched." Does Jesus' description of hell sound like a hole in the ground? No.

Quenched means put out. Hell is not put out it runs out of fuel to burn.

Eze 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Satan will be destroyed. The wages of sin is death not eternal life.

Why do you think GOD cannot destroy the wicked? Is he too weak?
---Samuel on 5/26/09


Dr DMW, You're flogging a dead horse here.
The fundamentalists on here see only hell and equate it with fire!
They have no concept that the word came from the Ger. hoelle (same as hole) hole in the ground where they place dead persons!
To them hell is Gehenna a symbolic use of a garbage dump.
They seem to like it that way because it defames God makes Him a fiend, barbecuing humans.
Satan has poisoned their minds!

davidward- Yours is a case of the blind leading the blind. Why would the rich man in hell want a drink of water? (Luke 16:24)Because baked potatoes burned his mouth, or because he was tormented in that flame? Jesus Christ was not out to mislead people, are you? (Matthew 5:22) Jesus said, "...but whosoever shall say Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." Matthew 18:9 Jesus again mentioned hell fire.

Mark 9:43 "...it is better for thee to enter into life maimed than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched." He explained hell very well there, didn't he?

Too many people think of a lake of Fire. Only the word Hell means seperation from God. The people in Elizbethan England put potatoes in hell during the winter (ie a hole in the ground) The King James Bible (he was a pervert)does not differentiate the word hell.

good morning to all, peace to you
jesus spoke about hell more than any one in the bible,
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:41)
Matthew 25:41 (Jesus speaking to people at final judgment), ...Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
Matthew 10:28, And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Gregg, thanks for your reply too. Nuclear bomb or ordinary bombs - the effects were terrible. There are many different theories about why (and if) they dropped one atomic and one nuclear bomb. I am sure you have heard them all. Politicians/NGOs/and dogooders of course, will use the Atomic/Nuclear bombings of H and N as a platform for bringing in the ' peaceful New World (Order)' or Global Government. I seem to remember 'Never again' was said about the Jews, about the Japanese, and then we had a continuation of slaughter all over the planet using cleverer and/or the same type of methods.

Samuel: Excellent point! If the wicked continued to live forever in hell (actually the lake of fire), then the scripture is wrong for calling it the second DEATH. Death cannot logically be equivalent to eternal life (tortured or otherwise).

rhonda- First, it seems to me you can't make a complete sentence or thought. Rhonda, are you afraid you're going to hell? Is that why you ignore the obvious in the Bible when it speaks of hell? Jesus Christ wants you to know you have problems. Hate God not. Hate your sins. Love God. Beware of people who give you love that is not real. George knows what I mean. Tell him no. You're not his and he's not yours. Truly, truly, Lord knows you are wrong. Marriage is what you need, Rhonda. God wants you to give him away. Give up harming yourself. Trust the Lord. Don't give up life. Talk to God about your problems. Bring your heart to church one day and let God see it. Stop being mean.

"Is there really a Hell?" Yes!!!

I've heard it said, "For believers (followers of God) this life is the only Hell we'll ever know. But, for unbelievers, unless they repent, it's the only Heaven they'll ever know."

My Christian experience is that followers of God can enjoy various degrees of Heaven while living on earth. To the contrary, the world is full of souls who revel in hell raising & to their utter destruction reap what they sew.

So, I believe Hell is compartmentalized by degrees of punishment above & ultimately below earth. (Lk. 16:19-31)

Hell was not created as a place to punish man. Hell was created for Lucifer and the 1/3 of all the angels that followed his rebellion. Hell is simply the only place where God's omnipotent presence does not exist. Man is the only creation who chooses to go there. If you do not want to love God and have a relationship with Him during your time here on this earth, than you will not want to spend eternity with Him. Out of His great love, He allows us to go to a place where He and all His glory that you do not like, do not exist. You do not let people who hate you, or want nothing to do with you into your house, so why should it be any different with God.
---Gregg on 5/11/09


There are those in here who think there is no hell. We just seem to cease to exist, or we can just do what ever we want and still get forgiven. Well I tell you this. If you are right, I have absolutely nothing to fear. I will cease to exist and it won't matter about the silly deity I believed in all my life. All the works that I did, won't matter. My whole being will be gone. But if you are wrong, and my God is real, and you chose to reject Him, and spend eternity where He does not exist, I guarantee you will be wishing you were right. Because it would be better to not exist, than to spend eternity begging for relief from the torment. Fear not what can destroy the flesh, rather fear what can destroy the soul.
---Gregg on 5/11/09


Frances

Thank yo for your reply. I used to defend the USA's reasoning for the bombings, until I went to the museum and saw the horrors of the aftermath. The Atom, and plutonium bombs were indeed dropped, and that is not a lie. Those who say otherwise, are resentful of the mistake we made. A firebombing attack doesn't create heat so intense that peoples shadows are left behind etched forever into the concrete. The body blocks the flash just long enough to prevent the concrete from burning an equal amount of time.

In regards to the Emperor, read the accounts of the B-29 Boomerang, and how they prevented the overthrow of the Emperor by the top military leaders.

Thanks again, Betty. Obviously you are not brainwashed. Greg, you put forward some interesting points, thanks. I particularly like the way you can put forward your opinion of what happened, without making it into an opportunity to deride me. That kind of arguing makes me reconsider my opinion. This definitely needs hours of studying to get to the bottom of. I agree about Tokyo being bombed was worse than H and N, and there are some who say no nuclear bombs were used at all. I have an Air Force Manual on Radiation's effects and they claim that nuclear bombs are yet to be tried out. Nobody was allowed to report on the bombings for weeks after the bombs were dropped (or whatever).
---frances008 on 5/11/09


Hell is very real. And it is a shame that way too many people will be in hell because they were not washed by the blood of the Lamb. God gave me a vision a while back on how hell is going to be. I wouldn't wish anyone to face God's wrath, but I can't make that decision. People think they have so much time, even the people that have been Christians for umteen years. But time is running out fast, and I pray that people are ready. If they're not ready then they need to get ready and stay ready.

The Japanese had not surrendered before the Hiroshima Bomb, and the military had no intention on surrendering after Nagasaki. They had planned to overthrow the emperor to prevent him from surrendering as a means to protect him. It wasn't until we agreed to let the Japanese keep their emperor as a symbolic figure would they agree to total surrender. The people of Japan were ready to repel any invasion, and we were going to nuke a path to Tokyo from the beach, not knowing the radiation effects. We could have bombed them to oblivion, and it wouldn't have done any good. It wasn't until we let agreed to spare their Emperor, that they surrendered.
---Gregg on 5/11/09


It is the single biggest atrocity that man has ever done, because it was not about saving lives of americans, we would have marched our troops through the radiation from the path we made to Tokyo. We didn't need to invade, we didn't need to starve them out. All we had to do was modify the terms of surrender that we would not try and execute their emperor Who was their god. My country murdered thousands of Japanese so we could send a message to the soviets that we had the bigger guns. Of course more people were killed in the fire bombings of Tokyo than the two atom bombs combined. I have been to the Hiroshima Memorial. I will never forget.

Both groups got their butts kicked. Moral: if you don't want your butts kicked, don't attack the USA!

---alan8566_of_UK on 5/10/09


Jerry, I think you are disobedient to God's laws yourself, and that is why you cannot see that it is wrong to kill (mass murder) people who are no threat to you. You are blinded. The devil tells you a lie, you believe him, then you think it excuses you from breaking the commandments. God gave us commandments because He knew that the devil would try to deceive people. The only killing I can condone is when someone comes with guns to intrude on the privacy of your own land/homestead. Then God help those who don't have guns to protect themselves with. And God help the intruders who had better be prepared for their early demise.
---frances008 on 5/10/09


Jerry, the next time the British government asks you to give your or your loved ones lives in their wars, ask why that has to be so. No Japanese friends would mention Hiroshima or Nagasaki to me. Pearl Harbour was allowed to happen by the Americans, as an excuse to go to war with Japan. It could very easily have been prevented because they had the information about it before hand. Also the Japanese surrendered days before H and N were bombed. One freemason (Stimpson?) kept the information to himself, because they wanted to bomb H and N.
---frances008 on 5/10/09


People actually informed me that the Japanese did not do Pearl Harbour, but they don't mind getting the credit for it because it made them look so much stronger than the Americans. Books have been written by Americans about investigating Pearl Harbour.

Yes, Hell is very real. Some Christians have unbelief. That is, unbelief in Hell. They want to quote verses about God's Love all day, but Jesus himself made more references to Hell than He did to Heaven.

And even though we are all made in God's image (I understand the point of the guy below me), that doesn't mean that we ACT like God.

Frances: Whenever your Japanese friends complain about Hiroshima, remind them of Pearl Harbor, and their sons, the Kamikazes. Remember, we also carpet bombed Berlin. Such is the price of starting a war.

Any god that treated a mass murdering puppet the same as a nun whose whole life was spent looking after the poorest of the poor, is not worth following. A god whose main attributes do not include justice, and whose mercy does not depend entirely upon the desire of man for it. is not worth following.

Yes but God only made hell as punishment for the devil and his angels but when humans make the choice(free will) to take the devil's side then that's their destination too. God loves humans and wants everyone to be in heaven with Him-so God doesn't send anyone to hell, it was their own choice.

If it is God's will that I burn in hell forever, there is nothing I or anyone can do about it. God calls all the shots. We call none of them. (Eph.1.11) But he there is a hell, it is only temporary, else 1.Cor.15.27,28 can't be true.

Any god who would forever burn billions of people supposedly made in his own image isn't worth giving even the time of day. Such a god makes Hitler look like Mother Teresa.

If it's not worthy of consideration, because, in your eyes, it is an absurd idea, then you won't mind going there when you die, will you, JohnnyB? I personally am frightened to death to think of any kind of everlasting separation from God, and grouping in with murderers etc. It must be like being dumped in a kind of open prison which is full of guilty people (unlike any on earth where they are half full of innocent people and tax evaders and peace protesters). In this prison the people are free to bully and push you around whenever they want, for eternity. There is no kind of law or order or respect for one another.

Even Japanese people talk of Heaven and Hell, and they mostly reject or don't want to know about Christianity (due to things like Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings). This goes to prove that the Holy Spirit plants the Word (truth) into our hearts, no matter what religion we are. We know in our hearts that we sin, and we deserve punishment. That is where fear of death comes from. And those who sin, they deny the truth and so don't believe they will be punished. It's a vicious circle. They sin because they think there will be no punishment. But I know good atheists who have good morals but don't believe in Heaven or Hell. If they keep the law, I believe they will be saved some day. Perhaps they have never met real Christians.

Hell really does exist ...it is the grave where a physical body is put into the ground after death

Hell is not a "place" where people who do not receive eternal life go SIMPLY because they do not receive eternal life ONLY SAVED receive eternal life per Word of God

Dante's Inferno inspires some warped "sermons" by false ministers serving their blind sheep a lie making the Great God of love and mercy into a hateful sinister "god"

amazing how many follow men and their lies about God ...contradiction in hell as a "real" place where some "god" sadistically tortures forever WOULD BE void of any love and mercy

Larry is the question blasphemous or peoples unbiblical responses? Of course it is not the question that is wrong, but unbiblical responses. If you are witnessing to people, be prepared in and out of season to give a biblical answer and not attack the question or person at hand.

The question is absurd and blasphemous.
---larry on 5/9/09


Just because someone doesn't believe in something doesn't prove that something exists. Logic is so lacking here sometimes. In any case, if something is absurd, it is not worthy of consideration.
---JohnnyB on 5/9/09


JohnnyB, what do you mean by that? The existance or not of a place does not depend on your belief in it. Nor does whether it serves any useful purpose. Anyhow it serves a useful purpose, to whit, those who caused all the trouble on this earth will not be allowed into a Kingdom where God is the boss.
