    I have come to the conclusion that this forum is a training camp.....boot camp, per se, for Christians to be challenged to see just how well they really do know the Bible....especially when posts like this surface.....assuming we are all reading from the same Bible (maybe different translations) but still the same content then those who are spiritually minded will understand the truth of His Word.....the carnal minded will read it and take it literally and logically through their own understanding and try to teach it to others. Lord I pray for a refreshing of my spiritual understanding of your Word as you intended it to mean, thank you! :)o_O

    People tend to read themselves into the text...watch a persons' behaviour...then listen to their doctrine.

    It is like ....What does your doctrine do to you?

    If it causes you to judge others and condemn others ....you need new teaching.

    So, based on these verses, you believe the bible is teaching that the penalty for (unforgiven) sin is eternal life tormented in hell?

    I have checked out every one of your posts and threads...
    NOT ONE thing that you have said in 19 posts glorifies the Lord one bit.....every single post of yours is GLOOM d , dark and negative...

    You seem obsessed with what the Devils is doing and how powerful demons are...
    You need to get saved and move from that darkness into LIGHT.

    All will experience eternity: eternal life or eternal fire. Listen to my recording in the original post.

    You just quoted me serving the Lord. As a servant of the Lord, I will follow His lead and not your inaccurate and hyperbolic characterizations.

    I quoted scripture and published to the internet, stating the truth. You quoted and published nothing to support your deceived or deceiving assertion.

    Those in hell literally will experience eternity with a small tormenting spiritual creature (a worm or something similar) in or on them while suffering in a lake of fire. And it will be worse for some than others. This is accurate.

    No I am a Biblicist, and I do not apologize for that in the least.

    The doctrine of eternal Hell -- the Lake of Fire -- is clearly stated in Scripture, but since we are living in apostate times, more and more churches and preachers are attacking this doctrine and denying the reality of Hell. The cults had already rejected this doctrine, along with that of the deity of Christ and the Holy Trinity. They will all give account for misleading people.

    Every sinner needs to clearly understand that the very reason for the finished work of Christ and His commandment to preach the Gospel to EVERY CREATURE is the existence of Hell -- created for the devil and his angels, but reserved also for all those who fail to believe and obey the Gospel.

    Now please NOTE CAREFULLY the departing words of the Lord Jesus Christ, recorded by divine inspiration within an authentic portion of Scripture (Mark 16:15,16):

    And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned*.

    *Strong's Concordance (2632)
    katakrinó: to give judgment against
    Original Word: κατακρίνω
    Part of Speech: Verb
    Transliteration: katakrinó
    Phonetic Spelling: (kat-ak-ree'-no)
    Short Definition: I condemn
    Definition: I condemn, judge worthy of punishment.


    Thayer's Greek Lexicon
    STRONGS NT 2632: κατακρίνω
    ...θανάτου,
    Mark 14:64; simply, of God condemning one to eternal misery: passive, Mark 16:16; 1 Corinthians 11:32; James 5:9

    What is this "eternal misery"? Charles Haddon Spurgeon, one of the most well-known preachers in the world, explained it thus:

    Spurgeon on Hell and Judgement
    Twin Hells!
    From Spurgeon's sermon, "Resurrection From the Dead"

    "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the
    soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul
    and body in hell." -Matthew 10:28.

    Hell will be the place for bodies as well as for souls.

    There is a real fire in hell, as truly as you have now a real body- a fire exactly like that which we have on earth in everything except this - that it will not consume, though it will torture you. You have seen the asbestos lying in the fire red hot, but when you take it out it is unconsumed. So your body will be prepared by God in such a way that it will burn forever without being consumed. It will lie, not as you consider, in a 'metaphorical' fire, but in actual flame. Did our Savior mean fictions when he said he would cast body and soul into hell?

    What should there be a pit for if there were no bodies? Why fire, why chains, if there were to be no bodies? Can fire touch the soul? Can pits shut in spirits?Can chains fetter souls? No! Pits and fire and chains are for bodies, and bodies shall be there.

    Unconverted man, you will sleep in the dust a little while. When you die your soul will be tormented alone- there will be a hell for it. But at the day of judgment your body will join your soul, and then you will have twin hells--
    body and soul shall be together, each brimfull of pain, your soul sweating in its inmost pore drops of blood, and your body from head to foot suffused with agony; conscience, judgment, memory, all tortured, but more- your head tormented with racking pains, your eyes starting from their sockets with
    sights of blood and woe; your ears tormented with shrieks; your heart beating high with fever; your pulse rattling at an enormous rate in agony; your limbs crackling like the martyrs in the fire, and yet not burned up; yourself, put in a vessel of hot oil, pained, yet coming out undestroyed; all your veins becoming a road for the hot feet of pain to travel on; every nerve a string on which the devil shall ever play his diabolical tune of Hell's Unutterable Lament; your soul for ever and ever aching, and your body palpitating in unison with your soul.

    Fictions, sir? Again, I say, they are no fictions, and as God lives, but solid, stern truth. If God is true, and this Bible is true, what I have said is the truth, and you will find it one day to be so.

    You are grossly misrepresenting the character of God. Jesus came to reveal the Father. Thus you misrepresent Jesus also. You don't know Him as well as you would have us believe.

    Not in one instance does scripture even remotely suggest that the wicked live forever.

    Incorrect. The gospel was established to grant life because the wages of sin is death.

    In order to substantiate eternal torment, one must first substantiate immortality for sinners. I believe this is an impossible task, due to two biblically sound realities.
    1. Eternal life is a gift promised those who are redeemed through the blood of the Lamb. This does not, cannot apply to those who are lost, thus eternal life for the lost must be proved as a natural trait outside of grace.
    2. The Bible clearly and extremely succinctly declares that the soul that sinneth, it shall die. No evidence for the natural eternal condition of the soul can be found in these words. Not in any other either.

    Couple the above irrefutable statements regarding mortal man, and the gift of life promised only to the righteous, with the many and varied statements declaring the destiny of the wicked described as death... Perish... Destruction... Burnt up...etc, the only conclusion an honest Bible student can come to is that the scriptures are in fact abundantly clear on this topic, and the fact that there is any debate at all is because of the preconceived opinions built on dark age mentality devised in the pits of hell to destroy the character of a merciful gracious God and portray Him as a tyrant of even darker and more evil nature than the worst of human despots and dictators. We rightly condemn the dictator who punishes his detractors with undue pain and suffering, then for just a few moments, and then glorify a god who does the same forever.

    I did. I wanted confirmation to the question whether or not you believe the penalty for unforgiven sin is eternal life in torment. Apparently you do believe that the price to be paid is eternal torment. So one more question:

    Why do you teach that Christ is still in hell and did not raise from the dead?

    You misappropriated Scripture in order to substantiate a false doctrine.

    Death is the cessation of life, not a continuation of it.

    Once you get that straight, then Eternal Torment becomes merely the flawed pagan logical extension of Satan's false idea of death which he presented as the first lie recorded in the Scripture ("...thou shalt not surely die.") that was dragged from paganism into Christianity by the Roman catholic church. God says "the soul that sinneth, it shall die". You seem to believe Satan's lie over God's truth.

    In Brief...

    The Scripture uses the TERM "DESTROY", in application To an UN-Saved soul, AND a Body that Shall Not Become Glorified.

    Men "Tweak" the TERM destroy Destroy and say, Annhilate and Obliterate.

    Everything God Created in the Beginning STILL EXISTS.

    In short; NOTHING God has created becomes Non-Existent!

    Gods creations are in the simplest Terms "matter".

    Make bricks, assemble them into a building, implode the building....it becomes destroyed;
    The materials / matter (bricks) do not Disappear....They become unrecognizable in Building Form...

    It is called DESTROYED, Because it is BEYOND REPAIR, FIXING, ADDING ANY IMPROVEMENT To it.

    The rubble, (bricks) again BECOME sand and dust of the earth....and the Form (building) that WAS made becomes no longer Visible to See, and Forgotten. And BE the Building a Church, having had the Word of God spoken, bells ringing, music and praises and worshiping unto the Lord...Will Cease....
    So ALSO, WILL CEASE....IS Gods Light Reflection and Presence with THAT which has Become Destroyed and Forgotten.

    God created human Bodily Forms from Dust of the Earth He created And Made Souls.

    God provided EACH with Life.
    1) Blood Life for the Body, that the Body and Blood...IS sentenced TO DIE.
    2) His Breath Life for the Soul, ( that both His Breath Life and ALL Souls Belong TO HIM).

    Once A Soul with God Breath enters a Body of man, the mans bodily Life (Blood) is quickened, and the Whole Body becomes its own individual Living Kind of THING, called a Terrestrial thing, an Earthly man, a Human Kind of Man.

    All bodies Shall Die.
    Living souls with Gods Breath shall continue Living In Living Bodies or Continue Living Outside of Bodies that Have Ceased Living...
    UNTIL....

    The THE Day of THE Lord.

    Evidence is being Recorded Daily in Gods own Heavenly Books of Records.

    Men continue to be naturally born daily...
    Men continue to become Spiritually born daily
    Men continue to Reject God daily...

    The Day of JUDGEMENT is coming, unknown to manKIND, what day it will be.... AND AFTER Judgement...the Result of Judgement...ie. The Sentencing carried out.

    Every mans Body and Soul WILL BE Judged According TO THAT mans OWN (Freely chosen/elections/ standing).

    A living mans Freely made choices, elections, standing IS CLEARLY Revealed;

    A Living Man IS; WITH God or AGAINST God.

    In short; IF a man IS NOT With God....
    That man IS AGAINST God. Period!

    Men who are Against God....
    SHALL BE "DESTROYED", BODY and SOUL.

    Memory of their bodily Form;
    Memory of their soul, their thoughts, words, ideas, works, emotions, etc.;
    Completely Forgotten...and Remembered no more.

    REMEMBERED BY WHO?

    REMEMBERED By God? No.
    REMEMBERED By those men WITH God? No.

    REMEMBERED By the individual man himself?
    No.

    There Are more details Revealed in Scriptures that men have much confusion about...
    However the mystery has been revealed.

    God Bless,
    Taken
