    for satan / hell

    I just learned
    that the idea of hell is not supported in the scriptures
    I learned the idea was introduced after Dante made a painting

    and was an idea initially created by the
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoroastrianism
    an old iranian religion

    where a figure is introduced that became the later satan guy

    for you fellow domainers who fear hell
    listen to these guys
    maybe it cures you






    yes I know he doesn't look like what we used to call a yuppy

    You got that right.

    Hell, as in a fiery hell, is a non-biblical pagan teaching introduced by Roman Catholicism in order to control people out of fear. I wonder how much it costs today to get your dead loved ones to leave purgatory (where supposedly they're stuck in limbo, between heaven and hell).

    The original Greek and Hebrew words translated as "hell" simply refer to the common grave. Where everyone that dies is buried. Other translations use "hades" and "sheol" (Greek and Hebrew transliterations). But never does it refer to a conscious existence in some underworld.

    There is a lake of fire. It is presumably intended for the fallen angels who know the truth but intentionally and knowingly defy it. "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day." - Jude 1:6

    As for the deceived masses, theologians disagree as to whether there is eternal torment and also whether a loving God would subject someone who was deceived to eternal torment. This is perhaps in contrast to someone who "sold their soul" and openly, willfully, and intentionally worships Satan as God of this world, e.g. through witchcraft, magic, occult practices such as Satanic Ritual Abuse which is being exposed lately.

    My reading of scripture is that upon Christ's return, He will rule and reign from the Throne of David for 1000 years during the Millennial Kingdom in Jerusalem. As to the duration of the tribulation which precedes that, and whether it has already started, theologians will disagree on that one. The signs that the tribulation is imminent, or even in progress, are certainly present.

    The Bible does say clearly that "every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." (Romans 14:11). My interpretation is that the unsaved will be resurrected at the end of the Millennial kingdom and will consciously stand at the Great White Throne judgement. At that time, it seems logical that anyone who is placed in that situation will recognize their error as they will be standing before God himself.

    You are referring to Gehenna. The second death from which resurrection is impossible.

    This was an illustrative analogy referencing the constantly burning fire, lake of fire, that surrounded the wall of Jerusalem in the first century where all kinds of garbage was thrown into. Fire is used to illustrate permanent destruction where there is no hope of life (resurrection). Even today, fire is used to kill diseased animals, and other things that need to be permanently destroyed without any possibility of spreading a virus.

    The idea of being conscious and feeling the fire for eternity is completely ridiculous and non-biblical.

    We are not disagreeing.

    As for my specific reference to the fallen angels, I don't rule out that they will be subject to eternal torment. As for the fate of unredeemed fallen man, I am less emphatic than you and think better safe than sorry.

    Love and justice are God's strongest attributes. Eternal torment goes squarely against both qualities. No rule of justice will stipulate eternal suffering as a justified penalty for sin over a finite period of time. It is simply wrong. The punishment would be much harsher than the crime.

    Both angels and humans are called sons of God. Made in his image. And loved by him as their father. Would you punish your child for eternity if they became rebellious, even for all of his or her life?

    Would you put your son's or daughter's hand on a burning stove or fire to teach them a lesson?

    In the Bible, death is the opposite of life. Death is the punishment for sin. And the dead are unconscious.

    It makes no sense that God would punish sinners with life somewhere else. Much less with eternal torment.

    Theologians have debated the topic of the fate of unregenerate man for thousands of years. What verses are you relying on for your conclusion that after the final Great White Throne judgement the unredeemed simply perish without consciousness?

    As I see it, Matthew 25:46 is pretty unambiguous:

    And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    The context of the chapter is God's rebuke of unregenerate man, as he separates the sheep and the goats.

    The Greek text for "everlasting" is pretty clear:

    https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/mat/25/46/t_conc_954046

    Strongs 166: aiōnios - without end , everlasting.

    https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G166&t=KJV

    As for "punishment", it is also reasonably unambiguous:

    https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G2851&t=KJV

    Strongs 2851 - kólasis - correction, punishment, penalty:

    Your conclusion that a "loving God" would not do that is an opinion shared by many. However, if you are going to teach that (liberal) reading of scripture, you will likely be held accountable for the fate of those who relied on your interpretation. As for the atheistic hope of "lights out, show's over" for the unregenerate man, that is clearly a best case scenario. However, I am not sure where the unambiguous scriptural support for that conclusion can be found.

    The news of Jeff Epstein and his pedo antics is now prevalent. Truthseekers have known about this for many years including the vast supply chain that exists around all manner of abuse of children, including for ritual sacrifice. This should certainly reinforce the conclusion that at the highest levels there are some folks who engage in some mighty sordid acts. If you trace their motives, it becomes increasingly clear that there is a Satanic hierarchy replete with carnal benefits but, very likely, at an eternal cost.

    a threat is a threat
    and a good one


    if there is a human-like god as you seem to choose to believe
    he may be angry once in a while and punish

    that's why can't believe that it is so

    makes no sense
    first, he creates men after his image
    then he tells him to believe in him
    and if he can't he punishes men

    come on thats ridiculous

    he could have created mankind who believes in him
    in the first place
    if that would be an important feature of mankind

    My interpretation is more literal than liberal as you will see. If you let it, the Bible will interpret itself.

    I will use the KJV since it appears to be your preferred translation. It's not mine since the English language is antiquated and no longer used, but nevertheless, here goes :

    Gen. 3:19 "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

    Eccl. 9:5 "The dead know not a thing"

    Eccl. 9:10 "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest."

    Ps. 13:3 "Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;"

    Ps. 104:29 "thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust."

    Ps. 146:4 "His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish."

    Isa. 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 perish."

    Eze. 18:4 "Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

    Rom. 5:12 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"

    Rom. 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    Joh. 11:11 "These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep."

    Joh. 11:12 "Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well."

    Joh. 11:13 "Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep."

    Joh. 11:14 "Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead."

    Death is compared to sleep.

    The payment for sin is death, not life in some other dimension.

    Everlasting does not indicate a living or conscious state unless explicitly indicated as in "everlasting life".

    Dear Tom -

    I think you are playing with major fire with your references. Scripture is clear that we reap what we sow. The metaphor of sowing and reaping is used throughout the Bible.

    We sow natural terrestrial bodies. We reap spiritual bodies.

    1 Corinthians 15 is pretty clear about it. When we die, the terrestrial body becomes dust. At the resurrection, a spiritual body appears.

    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 1 Cor 15:22-24

    And a bit later:

    But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 1 Cor 35-40

    The promise of being awaken from the dust of the earth hails back to the great OT book of Daniel:

    And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. - Daniel 12:2

    You are free to believe as you like. However, if you teach someone that unregenerate man has nothing to fear, you are doing them a monumental disservice and I actually think you know this to be true.

    Dear Rob,

    I simply quoted you related texts. They speak for themselves.

    If you don't like what you read, your issue is not with me.

    Sincerely,
    Tom

    We will definitely have to agree to disagree on the fate of unregenerate man. You apparently think they simply cease to exist. I clearly think otherwise and cited what I consider to be unambiguous scripture.

    Now, pray tell, what will happen to those who are saved and in Christ Jesus. Please explain what you think will happen to them when they die, and the subsequent state of their eternal soul.

    I will let the scriptures answer that for you. In order to have the true understanding of the scriptures our interpretation of any given text must harmonize with the entire Bible.

    Joh. 11:24 "Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

    2 Tim. 2:18 "Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some."

    Rev. 16:16 "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."

    Rev. 19:19 "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army."

    Rev. 19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."

    Rev. 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

    Rev. 20:5 "But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection."

    Rev. 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."

    Rev. 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."

    Rev. 21: 1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."

    Rev. 21:2 "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

    Rev. 21:3 "And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God."

    Rev. 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

    Rev. 21:5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."

    @Rob Monster, also wrap your head around this truth:

    Acts 2:34 "For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,"

    Once you have all the pieces, it all makes perfect sense.

    As you have read in the KJV, the teaching of the "eternal soul", the idea that part of you keeps living and will never die, is non-biblical.

    Eze. 18:4 "Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

    In fact, the eternal soul idea originated with Satan and spread into Babylonian and pagan religions:

    Gen 3:4 "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"

    Gen 3:5 "For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

    Today nearly all religions teach that death is merely a transformation into another form of life.

    By definition, that is a scriptural answer. It is relatively uninspired, and probably is of little help to the reader as non-diligent seekers would likely be overwhelmed by it. For most: tl;dr aka "did not read".

    For the benefit of the general audience, I will try to distill an answer to my question simply and phrase it in in my own words:

    The Holy Spirit filled Christian has been born again, in the spirit, in Christ Jesus. At the resurrection, at the last trump of God, those with saved souls will be individually transformed into an eternal glorified body, filled with light, yet retaining recognizable appearance, memories and personality.

    Now, assuming you agree with that simple statement of the prophesied eternal future of regenerate man, would you not want that for everyone?

    I think you will run into some issues and perplexing questions after comparing that statement to the cited texts. For example, the cited texts clearly speak of the problems of the earth being removed. So who goes to heaven and who remains on the "new" earth?

    Rev. 21: 1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."

    Rev. 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

    Rev. 21:5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."

    So clearly death, pain, and suffering will be removed from the earth. If all saved souls go to heaven, who will enjoy this new wonderful earth?

    Also, if the resurrection takes place in the "last day", where are the dead now?

    Although it is not popular to preach the existence of a literal hell, I think the warning is pretty clear in the verbatim statement of Jesus Christ himself speaking to the apostles:

    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.
    Matthew 10:28

    Regardless of whether the unregenerate man will have eternal consciousness in hell, I hope we can agree that eternity in Christ would be a better option. Yes?

    First off. You just contradicted your theory of the eternal soul by quoting that the soul can be destroyed.

    Also, you have not answered the question as to who will enjoy the new earth, and if the resurrection is a future one, where are the dead (good or bad) now.

    Joh. 11:24 "Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

    Rev. 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

    Rev. 21:5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."

    Those who died in Christ are alive in the spirit with souls in tact but bodiless. You see it clearly in Revelation 6:9 -- these are saved souls awaiting their glorified bodies.

    At the resurrection, specific to regenerate man, the outlook is clear and applies to both those who are alive at the time, and also to those who have died physically in the meantime:

    Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    1 Corinthians 15:51-52

    During the millennial kingdom, my reading is that many of those glorified bodies will rule and reign with Christ right here on earth. I believe these same persons will have access to heaven as the angels do today.

    After the millennial kingdom, of 1000 years, we have the Great White Throne judgement when unregenerate man is resurrected and judged.

    Incidentally, ICYMI, the angels are also judged by glorified man (see 1 Corinthians 6:3). I believe this is the main reason why the angels take an interest in the well-being of man (see 1 Peter 1:12).

    Our finite mortal life on earth is just the testing ground for life in eternity. We have free will to figure out the truth, and to apply these truths to our lives.

    Do you think that a loving God would want people to worship him out of fear? That's unthinkable. Frankly, that idea turns people off of religion. No. He wants people to worship him out of love.

    Deut. 30:19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"

    Deut. 30:20 "That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."

    Death is non-existence. Life promised in this context is more than simply existence or survival. But a life full of joy that comes from a relationship with the Creator of the universe. I think any normal person would prefer a happy life over death any day. And death is something people fear. Sometimes not until it is imminent.
