    Is hell worse for some?
    If so, is it based upon the number of sins committed or the type of sin committed?
    For example, if someone committed adultery all their lives vs someone who committed adultery once. Would one's punishment be worse then?

    No matter how severe the punishment in degrees for those who end up in hell, I think that the worst thing about it is that those who go there will first be judged by our Lord Jesus Christ; and thus they will stand before Him and feel His wonderful presence.

    Being cast away from the Lord's presence will be the worst thing about hell for some people: the contrast will be equivalent to very great pain.

    The punishment of Hell is entirely natural and not imposed by God.
    So yes, it is perfectly tuned to ones sins.

    An atheist who treats his neighbors well will not suffer as criminals will.
    They will still be miserable for not allowing God to forgive them, but all
    suffering will be perfectly matched to the guilt they have. Ones who
    stole food for family, will not suffer like those who stole for being lazy.

    Everyone will come before God. They will see him in all his splendor, Glory and maginicance.
    They will be terrified but will also know something of what they have rejected and can never have.
    Heaven is discribed by negatives, there is no sin, sadness, crying, pain etc so it follows that in hell there is no peace, joy, love etc
    Those there will no what to be Godless truely means.

    I would say to you that the story of the rich man and Lazarus in the gospel of Luke is no parable.

    Written from the perspective of someone in the Old Testament; who did not have the revelation given by our Lord in such passages as Matthew 13:41-42, Matthew 13:49-50, and Matthew 25:46.

    Hell worse?
    Perhaps in the sense, some souls are in Hell LONGER than others.

    However the Torments Suffered in Hell is Separation from God and AND His Pleasant creations which Applies the SAME to All souls in Hell.

    Glory to God,
    Taken

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. - Matthew 23:14

    The Bible makes it clear all your actions and motivations are recorded in the books that are opened at the White throne judgment for the unsaved.

    Quantity, type and motivation all factors in the punishment handed out.

    Consider what Jesus said about Judas and his punishment compared to others.

    As one said, our sins and the sins of others are worse than we think they are.

    As for those who claim annihilation and time is limited in hell, the Bible says they are wrong.

    The bible also makes it clear that those concepts do not apply to Christians because we are baptized into Christ's death. We are alive in spirit but the body is dead to sin. That's in Romans. The whole book. Repeated several times.

    As I have said many times, Christians are subject to judgment for rewards.

    Lost our subject to judgments for punishment.

    From the pre-tribulation rapture to the white throne is 1000 years.

    The first resurrection lasts from the pre-tribulation rapture to the post MK rapture immediately before the destruction of the earth.

    Well, your witness is badly muddled. You should be more careful.

    It is strange that you post so much but never quite get the message across.

    And I would say to you that you are wrong, it most certainly is a parable, unfortunately one which those who believe in a hell of eternal torment fell to properly understand. To force a literal interpretation on this parable involves all manner of absurdities.

    For those not fully given over to this, another one of the many errors taught by the apostate church in its vain efforts to covert men to Christ out of fear we would suggest they take a closer look at this parable that the truth might be determined. (The Rich Man and Lazarus)
