    Hi T8,

    Matt 5.29, 10.28 and 18.7 seem to confirm that the wicked experience whole body resurrection and risk Gehenna.

    Who knows for how long as a case can be made for several options.

    Hi Nick.

    Psalm 103:9: ‘He will not always accuse; neither will he stay angry forever.’

    Hi Miia,

    Rev 21

    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. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 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’

    God’s mercy has been fully expressed and His anger is expiated.

    The meek shall inherit the earth.

    Yes but if God does not stay angry forever, and God is love then there will be no people alive in hell for eternity.

    The wicked will be DESTROYED they well become ASHES, existing no more for all of eternity.

    Scripture tells us that the DEAD know NOTHING, they cannot praise God in the grave, so neither can they deny or sin against Him.

    Ecclesiastes tells us that all is vanity if one believes that they are different from the animals, what is made of dust returns to the dust.

    Hi,

    The body of Adam was fashioned from the dust of planet earth.

    God blew into the man of dust and he became a living soul.

     

    The breath of God gave Adam his soul and his spirit.

    Fear Him Who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

    “Gehenna” or “Gehenna of fire”. “This was originally the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem, where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast out and burned”.

    Jesus used the local place called Gehenna to describe the destruction of the wicked. They will become ashes, both body and mind, as there is no such thing as an immortal soul, to think otherwise scripture tells us is vanity and is to follow Plato and the early false Christian Church established by pagan converts who loved to mix in pagan beliefs. This is where false doctrines come in such as the trinity, immortal souls, eternal torture of the wicked, fallen angels, and demons as rebellious spirits.

    Hi Jodi,

    So you say.

    But you have yet to say who Jesus Christ is to you.

    The end of your intellectual exercise seems to be that you make him the mouthpiece for superstition.

     

    Is that what you mean?

    Hi Nick,

    I have written directly on this forum that people believe superstitions from PAGANS, and have understood Jesus’ words INCORRECTLY by applying PAGAN superstitions, instead of what the bible teaches.

    But you actually know this!! You know that the issue comes down to different definitions. I combine scripture to form an understanding, and look at the original meaning to words, I do not read a word in the bible and rely on a traditional Christian doctrine.

    The word hades for instance, does it represent the traditional Christian doctrine, one like Plato of a soul being eternally tormented, or does it represent the grave where people perish, or a fiery pit where people are reduced to ashes?

    Hi Jodi,

    Read and believe the words of Jesus Christ about Hades and the bosom of Abraham in Luke 16.

    Know that he is speaking of the waiting places and not the Lake of fire or Gehenna.

    Read and believe his words from the Spirit in Rev 20.13.

    Hades is thrown into the lake of fire.

     

    We are not told to fear Hades but to fear the One Who has the power to destroy soul and body in Gehenna.

    Nick…do yourself a favor go look up the word Hades. THE WORD HADES CAME FROM GREEK MYTHOLOGY, JUST ANOTHER PAGAN WORD USED IN SCRIPTURES.

    THE WORD “HELL” IS SIMPLY THE GRAVE. God can destory our complete being by simply leaving us in the grave, and not raising us back to life if he so chooses to. Fear God is a true statement he “only” has power to raise us up from the grave OR (hello’s) when we die, just as he did JESUS.

    Peace and love to you and yours. …..gene

    Hi Gene,

    Hades is a word used by God in scripture.

    Do you deny scripture?

    Hi Gene,

    Any KJV based translation uses HELL for Hades, Gehenna etc.

    Poor translation of the words from the manuscripts which has confused many.
