Hell is Real and You Don't Want to Go There !

Both Geophysical Science and the Holy Bible confirm there is a Lake of Fire beneath the Earth.

The Solid Inner Core of the Earth is the Hottest Part

Geophysical studies have revealed that the earth has several distinct layers. The outermost layer of the Earth is the crust. This comprises the continents and ocean basins. The crust has a variable thickness. The next layer is the mantle, which is about 2900 km thick, and is separated into the upper and lower mantle. This is where most of the internal heat of the Earth is located. The last layer is the core, which is separated into the liquid outer core and the solid inner core which is the hottest part of the earth.

The "Lake of Fire" in Hell is in the Mantle beneath the Earth

Geophysical scientists that have studied the volcano inform us the mantle under the earth is so hot that the rocks are in a molten or liquid state called the magma. This layer is where the "the lake of fire" may be located. During the eruption of a volcano the lava that flows out of the crater gives us the evidence that the "Lake of Fire" in hell is under the earth.

Russian Scientists Drilling in Siberia Recorded Sounds from Hell

The following article appeared in the well respected Finland newspaper "Ammenusastia "

 

As a communist I don't believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!"

Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit."

We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.""But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren't those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"

Sounds of Tormented Souls from Hell recorded by a Research Team in Siberia

The Geophysical Description of the "Lake of Fire" under the Earth fits the Biblical Description of Hell

The Holy Bible has many references to hell and over 162 of them are in the New Testament alone. There are more than 70 references that were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ. This is what He said about hell. The unsaved persons are thrown into a place of "fire" (Mt. 7:19; 13:40; 25:41); "everlasting fire" (Mt. 18:8; 25:41); "furnace of fire" (Mt. 13:42, 50); "the fire that shall never be quenched" (Mk. 9:43-48). Revelation describes hell as "the lake of fire" (Rev. 20:13-15).

Hell is the Place reserved for the Devil and his Angels.

After Lucifer and his wicked angels lost the war there was no place for them in heaven any more and they were cast to the earth (Rev. 12:7-9). Lucifer fell from heaven and was brought down to "Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit" (Isa. 14:12-14). The Lord Jesus Christ said that hell is the place with the "everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels." (Mt. 25:41).

The Hebrew word "sheol" is hell. The "pit" is a hole on the earth (Num. 16:30-33; Isa. 5:14). "For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;" (2 Pet. 2:4). Hell is described as a "bottomless pit" in which the wicked descend (Rev. 20:3; 17:8). From these biblical references we know that "hell" is a real place under the earth.

Hell is a Place of Torment

Hell is a place of torment (Lk. 16:28). The Lord Jesus Christ described the unsaved man as "being in torment in hades" (Lk. 16:23). In hell the man said, "I am tormented in this flame." (Lk. 16:24) "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and they have no rest day or night, . . ." (Rev. 14:11)

To Hell and Back – a book by Dr. Maurice Rawlings

Originally Dr. Maurice Rawlings was not a Christian. He is a cardiologist. Dr. Rawlings encountered some near death experiences (NDE) from his patients that made him a believer. He is the author of a book "To Hell and Back" that describes life after death. Dr. Rawlings writes of the experiences of his own patients brought back to life. Here are some excerpts from his book.

"I (Dr. Rawlings) was giving CPR to a patient when the following incident occurred. I inserted a pacemaker through the shoulder and guided it through the vein into Charlie's heart. His heart stopped so I began to pound on his heart, but as I did blood spurted out, I stopped to adjust the pacemaker. And as I did, Charlie's eyes would roll back in his head, he would sputter, turn blue, and convulse. This happened several times. Once while I was stopped to adjust the pacemaker Charlie screamed, 'Don't stop, don't stop, I'm in Hell, I'm in Hell.' Hallucinations, I thought at first, but most victims say, 'Take your big hands off me, you're breaking my ribs,' but he was saying the opposite 'For Gods sake don't stop! Don't you understand, every time you stop I'm in Hell. When he asked me to pray for him I felt downright insulted. I told him to shut up, I'm a doctor, not a minister or a psychiatrist. Then the nurse gave me that expectant look. What would you do? That's when I composed a make-believe prayer. I made him repeat the prayer to keep him off my back. Say it! Jesus Christ Son of God, Keep me out of Hell. And a very strange thing took place. He was no longer that wild-eyed screaming lunatic. It was then that I too (Dr. Rawlings) became a Christian." (pg 37).

Here is another Story from Dr. Rawlings' Book

"I (Dr. Rawlings) was watching a monitor to guide a pacemaker into my patient's heart when it happened: his heart stopped. This is the story. The patient recounts his story in this way: "I blacked out and then you (Dr. Rawlings) hit me on the chest saying 'Excuse me.' ... Somebody was yelling. Something crashed over my left shoulder, everybody went crazy. And then I was out of it. I was floating, pitch black, moving fast. The wind whistled by and I rushed toward this beautiful blazing light. As I moved past, the walls of the tunnel caught fire. Beyond the blazing tunnel a huge lake of fire was burning like an oil spill. Elongated shadows showed that people were moving aimlessly about like animals in a zoo enclosure. Down the hill I saw an old friend who had died -- the last I recall they were dragging the river for him, 'hi there Jim' I called out. He just looked at me, didn't even smile. They were taking him around the corner when he started screaming: I ran, but there was no way out. I kept saying 'Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Lord.' Suddenly I was back in my body, as you were putting in the stitches." (pg 72).

Hell is a Reality (Screaming of the Damned)

You have a Choice of either going to Heaven or Hell. There is only One Way to Heaven. JESUS is the only Way, the Truth and the Life.

"So they said, 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." (Acts 16:31)

WHY or even HOW can/would anyone love a god that would DO THAT??

WHY do you take everything in that book to be literal.  You want to be literal - then DO IT - and get it right.

You say something is either TRUE or FALSE.  OK - Here is a TRUTH.

Hell = SHEOL AND HADEES

LITERALE TRANSLATION.

The Hebrew Old Testament, some three hundred years before the Christian era, was translated into Greek, but of the sixty-four instances where Sheol occurs in the Hebrew, it is rendered Hadees in the Greek sixty times, so that either word is the equivalent of the other.

But neither of these words is ever used in the Bible to signify punishment after death, nor should the word Hell ever be used as the rendering of Sheol or Hadees for neither word denotes post-mortem torment.

Hell primarily signifys only the place, or state of the dead.  Which is -- DEAD.

"The living are conscious that they will die, but as for the dead, they are COSCIOUS OF NOTHING AT ALL."

Is that CLEAR enough for you?

I like the center of the Earth theory, because we know that the earth is not going to last forever, which makes hell finite.

privateye2500 8 years ago from Canada, USA, London

The word in greek means GRAVE...

The character of those who departed thither did not affect their situation in Sheol, for all went into the same state. The word cannot be translated by the term Hell, for that would make Jacob expect to go to a place of torment, and prove that the Savior of the world, David, Jonah, etc., were once sufferers in the prison-house of the damned.

In EVERY instance in the Old Testament, the word grave might be substituted for the term hell, either in a LITERAL or figurative sense. The word being a proper name should always have been left untranslated.

BUT od course the catholic church could never leave THAT one alone! Oh NO! They had to have some way to control the masses with fear. What better way than through the fear of some buring afterlife if you don't do what WE say!

Had the word HELL been permitted to travel untranslated, no one would ever have given to it the meaning now so often applied to it. Sheol, primarily, literally, the grave, or death, secondarily and figuratively the political, social, moral or spiritual consequences of wickedness in the present world, is the precise force of the term, wherever it is found.

OK mr arkwriter - TRUTH man - true or false - you cannot have it both ways you said to me.

READ ME

That the Hebrew word never (get that - NEVER) designates a place of punishment in a future state of existence, we have the testimony of the most learned of scholars, even among the so-called orthodox.

SO what have we done, the catholics, the fearmongors - the controlers -

We quote the testimony of the few

VERY IMPORTANT FACTS - you HAVE to read this or you do not get to have your true and false :}

==================================

Are you a translator mr arkwriter? If not, then how can you call these translators liars.

Hell, in itself considered, has no connection with future punishment.

IMPORTANT FACTSGehenna was a well-known locality near Jerusalem, and ought no more to be translated Hell, than should Sodom or Gomorrah. See Josh. 15: 8; II Kings 17: 10; II Chron. 28: 3; Jer. 7: 31, 32; 19: 2. Gehenna is never employed in the Old Testament to mean anything else than the place with which every Jew was familiar. The word should have been left untranslated as it is in some versions, and it would not be misunderstood. It was not misunderstood by the Jews to whom Jesus addressed it. Walter Balfour well says: "What meaning would the Jews who were familiar with this word, and knew it to signify the valley of Hinnom, be likely to attach to it when they heard it used by our Lord? Would they, contrary to all former usage, transfer its meaning from a place with whose locality and history they had been familiar from their infancy, to a place of misery in another world? This conclusion is certainly inadmissible. By what rule of interpretation, then, can we arrive at the conclusion that this word means a place of misery and death?" The French Bible, the Emphatic Diaglott, Improved Version, Wakefield's Translation and Newcomb's retain the proper noun, Gehenna, the name of a place as well-known as Babylon. Gehenna is never mentioned in the Apocrypha as a place of future punishment as it would have been had such been its meaning before and at the time of Christ. No Jewish writer, such as Josephus or Philo, ever uses it as the name of a place of future punishment, as they would have done had such then been its meaning. No classic Greek author ever alludes to it and therefore it was a Jewish locality, purely. The first Jewish writer who ever names it as a place of future punishment is Jonathan Ben Uzziel who wrote, according to various authorities, from the second to the eighth century, A. D. The first Christian writer who calls Hell Gehenna is Justin Martyr who wrote about A. D. 150. Neither Christ nor his apostles ever named it to Gentiles, but only to Jews which proves it a locality only known to Jews, whereas, if it were a place of punishment after death for sinners, it would have been preached to Gentiles as well as Jews. It was only referred to twelve times on eight occasions in all the ministry of Christ and the apostles, and in the Gospels and Epistles. Were they faithful to their mission to say no more than this on so vital a theme as an endless Hell, if they intended to teach it? Only Jesus and James ever named it. Neither Paul, John, Peter nor Jude ever employ it. Would they not have warned sinners concerning it, if there were a Gehenna of torment after death? Paul says he "shunned not to declare the whole counsel of God," and yet though he was the great preacher of the Gospel to the Gentiles he never told them that Gehenna is a place of after-death punishment. Would he not have repeatedly warned sinners against it were there such a place? ;nbspDr. Thayer significantly remarks: "The Savior and James are the only persons in all the New Testament who use the word. John Baptist, who preached to the most wicked of men did not use it once. Paul wrote fourteen epistles and yet never once mentions it. Peter does not name it, nor Jude; and John, who wrote the gospel, three epistles, and the Book of Revelations, never employs it in a single instance. Now if Gehenna or Hell really reveals the terrible fact of endless woe, how can we account for this strange silence? How is it possible, if they knew its meaning and believed it a part of Christ's teaching that they should not have used it a hundred or a thousand times, instead of never using it at all; especially when we consider the infinite interests involved? The Book of Acts contains the record of the apostolic preaching,and the history of the first planting of the church among the Jews and Gentiles, and embraces a period of thirty years from the ascension of Christ. In all this history, in all this preaching of the disciples and apostles of Jesus there is no mention of Gehenna. In thirty years of missionary effort these men of God, addressing people of all characters and nations never under any circumstances threaten them with the torments of Gehenna or allude to it in the most distant manner! In the face of such a fact as this can any man believe that Gehenna signifies endless punishment and that this is part of divine revelation, a part of the Gospel message to the world? These considerations show how impossible it is to establish the doctrine in review on the word Gehenna. All the facts are against the supposition that the term was used by Christ or his disciples in the sense of endless punishment. There is not the least hint of any such meaning attached to it, nor the slightest preparatory notice that any such new revelation was to be looked for in this old familiar word." Jesus never uttered it to unbelieving Jews, nor to anybody but his disciples, but twice (Matt. 23: 15-33) during his entire ministry, nor but four times in all. If it were the final abode of unhappy millions, would not his warnings abound with exhortations to avoid it? Jesus never warned unbelievers against it but once in all his ministry (Matt. 23: 33) and he immediately explained it as about to come in this life. If Gehenna is the name of Hell then men's bodies are burned there as well as their souls. Matt. 5: 29; 18: 9. If it be the name of endless torment, then literal fire is the sinner's punishment. Mark 9: 43-48. Salvation is never said to be from Gehenna. Gehenna is never said to be of endless duration nor spoken of as destined to last forever, so that even admitting the popular ideas of its existence after death it gives no support to the idea of endless torment. Clement, a Universalist, used Gehenna to describe his ideas of punishment. He was one of the earliest of the Christian Fathers. The word did not then denote endless punishment. A shameful death or severe punishment in this life was at the time of Christ denominated Gehenna (Schleusner, Canon Farrar and others), and there is no evidence that Gehenna meant anything else at the time of Christ.

Dear privateye2500,

The Holy Bible teaches that the suffering of the lost in hell is eternal.

Isaiah 66:24 - "And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me (God), For their worm does not die, and their fire is not quenched.  They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh."  The Lord Jesus Christ concurred that a person could go to hell (Greek gehenna) "into the fire that shall never be quenched and where their worm does not die" (Mark 9:43-46, 48).

"And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and they have no rest day or night . . ." (Rev. 14:11)

The Lord Jesus Christ said, "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." (Mt. 25:46)

Is hell a literal place or figurative expression?  The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 depicts graphically the sufferings and torment of the unsaved. Jesus teaches in Matthew 10:28 that both the soul and body can be cast into hell.  If hell is a state of mind or methaphorical place, how can you cast a physical body into it?

In reading the Bible I believe that it teaches a literal fire and real sufferings.  In Matthew 13 where Jesus spoke about the separation of the saved and the unsaved.  "So it will be at the end of the age.  The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:49-50; Mt. 25:41)

There are some that assert God is too loving to punish somebody eternally.  If God would reward the just to have eternal life in heaven why wouldn't He punish the wicked eternally.  Who are we to say what God would do or wouln"t do?  God has been very loving, kind and patient and has given every person on earth a chance to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.  If a person rejects the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ then he or she has no one to blame but himself or herself.

The Lord Jesus Christ said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and will not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life." (Jn. 5:24)

Repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior right NOW!

May God bless you!

Choosing not to believe in Hell is actually created in the minds of people. This is a fact. Denial of Hell does not make it disappear. Only believing in the Lord Jesus Christ can save a person from going to Hell because He had already taken our place in death on the Cross. The One True God has revealed in the Scriptures that Judgment is coming to the world soon. So while you still have the time, repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your only Savior.

"He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son."

"But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolators, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." (Rev. 21:7-8)

You don't want to go to Hell. So believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved!

New Believer 8 years ago

Hey. All I have to say is I was an unbeleiver until something in life went wrong. I had anxiety attacks for 2 days. I should have went to the hosiptal but I didn't. Call me pycho but I ducked my head and prayed. I felt some comfort and I went to my sisters place. She gave me a bible after a talk. I couldn't stop reading. Gensis gave me comfort. I've been reading since Aug 2007. Only a two months ago did I understood the real meaning of the bible. Unbelievers will not get it. It's spiritual. I know I didn't get it until tragety happened. It's GOD's wakeup call. In any case, GOD loves me and I know why it happened. I am more richly blessed because of it.

My relationship with family is great, job prospect is great and I'm more at peace and confident. The truth is better than this world's lies. I still can't believe I was lied to all these years. The theory of evolution, media and worldly possesions. Lies.

Anyways, I hope people pick up the bible or watch more christian channels. I don't trust some of these pastors on TV but I can somewhat tell the difference. Seek he truth. The unbeleivers don't have to beleive, just gain knowledge and when something happens, that is the time for you to rethink what you learned.

I am grateful for unbelievers and faithful followers. People's opinions count.

After the HELL audios, I am more diligent in the faith. I don't goto church. I just read, think and prey. I read all views. I'm educated but the bible doesn't require a high school degree to understand for a seeker of truth.

Have faith in the good and leave the world behind. It's only 120 years at most but I desire paradise for eternity. :)

Look at Israel. That is the time scale for our Judgement. Peace.

someones been taking too much medication before hubbing.. hell is metaphoric not a place, if you want to get literal hell is the life you live karmatically if you were a bad bad person.. hell is escapable by learning from your mistakes.. god doesn't damn anyone to anything, we do it to ourselves... heaven on earth exists as well and is the result of good karma.. heaven and hell were invented as metaphores for percieving your good and bad karma, not some rediculous place you'd go for being bad... I believe we reincarnate into heaven or hell based on our last life's accumulated karma good or bad, its not a punishment or reward, it just is.

when I say reincarnate into I don't mean you go to pearly gates (what is god materialistic?) or hell (what is god revengeful?) I mean we enter into lifes circumstances based on things we need to learn.

Heavenly life is a life with less friction, hell is a life uphill but its for the reason that we need to grow spiritually.

We are not damned or rewarded other than punishing ourself because we think of things in the wrong light or rewarding ourselves because we aquire wisdom. people need to stop trying to read the bible literally and read what's really there "for crists sake" :)

SirDent: Prove that it is made up if indeed it is. It's easy to say something is just made up. harder to prove it. So how would a person go about proving hell to be made up? The hardest way is to die and find out, but I don't recommend it.

The easiest way is to ask God Himself. He will tell you if it is real or not. And I don't mean the god whom everyone is a part of. I mean the one true God. The One who gave His life on Calvary for the sins of the world.

SirDent: The burden of proof is on the person claiming that something exists. There are millions of people who believe that a multiarmed god named Vishnu exists, and they have exactly the same amount of proof that he exists as you do for hell's existence: none. Do you mean to tell me that the burden of proof is on the rest of us to demonstrate that Vishnu does *not* exist? (If so, I'd love to see how you'll prove that)

I'm afraid "talking to God" is another imagined thing that has never been proven either, and something I doubt very much ever will.

Just because you want to believe something doesn't make it so.

Are you saying God is an idiot and unable to communicate with His creation?


livelonger profile image

livelonger 8 years ago from San Francisco

SirDent: I'm saying that there is no proof of hell (or God) so we can not assert anything about their existence. The defaults for anything you have absolutely no proof for is "it doesn't exist" or "I have absolutely no idea if it exists", not "it exists if I want it to exist, and it doesn't exist if I don't want it to exist."

I don't believe that God definitively exists, as I have seen no proof of his (?) existence. People think they can talk to things all the time (dead relatives, spirits, ghosts, etc.) - it simply means they want to believe they are.

You are right, though, that the only credible way to know about the existence of hell is to die (and, I assume, not be one of the 144,000 mormons entitled to go to heaven!). I do not have any evidence of any knowledge of what the nature of an afterlife is, if there is any at all, and I'm personally comfortable with the fact that we will probably never know.

Congratulation to all of you people you aren't "going to Hell". It must be such a relief! Living in fear of such an outrageously sinister eternal fate would be unbearable, so if it works for you, then go for it. But please try not to be so surprised and disappointed to learn that millions of bright - and, very frequently, spiritually awakened souls - do not and will not share either you fear of eternal damnation or the "comfort" you have in feeling like you've found the answer. We non-hell-believing hordes are OK, really!

 


Joshua 7 years ago

Privateeye is correct, Arkwriter. The jews NEVER understood gehenna to be a place of eternal punishment (and you wholly misunderstand what "their worm dieth not" means) and to this day, they still do not. There is nothing in the old testament at all that invites of this interpretation. The scripture you mentioned clearly says the CORPSES of the wicked. It goes on to say they will be ASHES trampled underfoot. They are DEAD.

Repeatedly the old testament reveals what Sheol is- it is the grave. Otherwise how can the scripture say in truth (as quoted by private eye)- the dead are conscious of NOTHING? Solomon wrote what the grave is in eccesliastes. Paul himself says that we will by no means be caught up to heaven prior to the resurrection- which means that all who die, go neither to heaven or hell, but to the grave.

I'm betting you believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, as well. This stuff is all junk, doctrines of men attached to the truth. It makes a mockery of the application of the label "gospel", for what manner of good news teaches that the vast majority of all humanity is bound for eternal torment?

As to the PARABLE of the rich man and lazarus...that's exactly what it is. A PARABLE. It was never intended to be taken literally- it illustrates a spiritual truth. I refer you here to where an excellent explanation is given that is scripturally consistent: http://www.tentmaker.org/articles/Lazarus-byHuie.h...

The wages of sin is DEATH. Not hell. Revelation is not understood properly by anyone, it is a book of symbols and attempting to understand it with the natural mind and literally, is folly.


Joshua 7 years ago

As for your contention that man is able to choose to accept or reject God, the bible clearly contradicts it. It says that NO MAN comes to the Father but through the Son and that NO MAN comes to Son unless the Father draws him. What do you make of that scripture?

It is not the man who wills, or the man who runs, but God who shows mercy. That's romans 9:16. It is in Romans where Paul makes the case, continually, that Man actually can do nothing to receive Salvation from God. We don't "choose to accept Christ"- God chooses "to have mercy on whom He will have mercy and compassion on whom He will have compassion" it is, in fact, an entirely arbitrary decision of God. No pleading on the part of man can change or effect the Will of God on this matter.

But the scriptures go farther than that in declaring the good news:

"For he hath concluded them ALL in unbelief, in order that He might have mercy on ALL."

The only reason people don't want to accept what the scriptures actually say about the eventual condition of all mankind, is because deep in their hearts, everyone wants to believe that they were in some way responsible for their own salvation. No one wants to accept God as His word: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated." And yet, Jacob lied and cheated his own Father and brother to receive the blessing. He actually withheld food from his own starving brother unless he was willing to give up his birthright, which flies in the very face of christian charity and the teachings of Christ- and yet, God favored Jacob and looked down on Esau. Why?

Surely not because Jacob was more righteous. No- NONE is righteous. Our righteousness is FILTHY RAGS. And yet God shows no favoritism and is no respecter of persons. How can this be?

Because he will use the foolish things to CONFOUND the wise. God is infinitely good, infinitely just and yes, this justice requires punishment and judgment is coming to everyone.

But the mercy of God endures FOREVER. Heb. 7:25 Jesus is able to save to the uttermost

Wow, it looks like I got in on this one a little late. Let me try and revive this silly hell core hub. Wake up!! Breath!! Come on now!! People, come back to this ridiculous hub!! OK, do I see signs of life? Yes!!!! It's back!!! Now, in a few days I will destroy this stupid urban legend of people drilling a hole into the Arctic and hearing hell's screams. This story will have to suffer a violent death at my hands.


Dan 7 years ago

And death it will receive. That ice drilling to hell story has never been taken seriously. First of all, you can't drill into the earth's core. It's much too deep. Second of all, the only reason anybody would even suggest that hell is in the center of the earth is because they don't understand the scriptures that they think teach such non sense. And third, there is no place called hell. Period. The hell doctrine is a sick hoax. Most of the modern day teaching of this doctrine comes right out of the play, Dante's Inferno. Now, I know this story has no backing by any credible source. It is a very weak urban legend.

I noticed a few familiar names giving you credit for this gargbage. Sir Dent? Wow. I didn't think you would give any credit to such a ridiculous notion. So, are you people really believing that the very least severe portions of your stupid hell fable, are so painfull that it's inhabitants would be screaming non stop? Remember, even the most hell bent believers would say that there are degrees to this fable. So, we can assume that they dug into the very outskirts of this place (not the center where asses would be burning so hot that not even noah's flood would quench them). Boy, quite a punishment for those who just happened to grow up Hindu or something. This hell teaching is so stupid. Yeah, I realize that there are very worldly intelligent people who believe this hell crap, but I must say:

Anybody who believes that people digging into Arctic ice sheets accendentally pentetrated hell and have real evidence for this,

is a moron, both worldly and spiritually.

Matureo 7 years ago from http://www.eternalhell.net

Regarding Sheol, Sheol in the Old Testament is different to the grave for a number of reasons. Here are a few...

The Hebrew word for bury (kebar) is never used for Sheol. You can see some examples in Genesis 23:4, 6, 9 and 49:30, 31).

The Hebrew word for grave (kever) can be made plural. In other words, you can have one grave (kever) or 100 graves. But the word for Sheol is never put in the plural.

A grave is found at a specific site but Sheol is never spoken of as being in a certain geographical location. Sheol is the “world” of the dead, not a particular place where a dead person is buried. A grave is a physical place you can visit no matter where the grave is.

And you don’t need a grave to go to Sheol. You can die in the desert and your body can decay where it falls but your soul will still go to Sheol, the underworld, the place of departed souls.

You can purchase or sell a grave as your own personal property (Genesis 23:4-20) but you cannot do this with Sheol. No one is ever spoken of as owning Sheol! In the grave, bodies are not conscious but they are in Sheol (Isaiah 14:4-7, Luke 16:19 and forwards)

If you read the Bible it interprets itself.

Re Gehenna, sure it has historical connections with a rubbish dump which continualy burned with the rubbish which was thrown there. But Jesus himself took this image and used it to speak of place of eternal torment. JESUS said hell was eternal, hell was a place of torment and that we should FEAR God who has power to damn someone to hell. Fear is a good thing. It will help you escape the danger of a burning house. It can help you escape eternal torment.

But really, that is not the primary reason you should believe in and put your trust on the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from hell. You should trust in Christ to save you from hell because your are GUILTY of breaking God's moral law and are a sinner at heart and need salvation.

Praise God he send his son to save us. God Bless


Dan 7 years ago

Sheol means unseen. In other words, in sheol you no longer exist until that thing known as the resurection occurs. Gehenna was used as an example of judgment by Christ. The fires are symbolic for the purification of God. Any teaching of eternal torment lacks scriptural understanding and blasphems God more than any other false doctrine. Praise God that Christ will succeed in saving the world.

Please, do not waste your precious time and do not give the holly gospel to those that will never believe, no matter what...

People that are moving into the lake of fire demands revelations from that God they don´t believe... isn´t it funny?

Same story happens againg... Jews didn´t believe in Joshua (Jesus), but still ask for signals, back in time, Noah warned the people about the huge rain and they didn´t believed him... by the way, for those so intelligent and "science-slave" people, there are sufficient amunt of proofs about that, but, of couse, you won´t believe... just because you don´t like the "idea" of being a real lake of fire...

Hope you, unbelievers, to be lucky right after you die and leave your flesh-and-bone-made body, and find yourself in the place you always dreamed not to be real...

If you, unbelievers, are right, nothing happens, unbelievers do not win a bit and believers still do not loose a bit...

If we are right, as we certainly are, and lake of fire is for real, then you loose, and will suffer for ever, ever, and ever, and .... well, you know what infinte time means, don´t you...?

Go not get me wrong, I am not happy about what you, unbelievers, are gonna face with, but sometimes ou got to push or pull hard, to get something or someone moving... by all means, if Jesus cannot convert you into his Holly Word, how could I?

Just will be safe by faith... first is the faith, then then proofs... not the way around as you mught think...

In facto, every single person in the word live by faith... We, the believers, live by the pure faith in God, and his Holly Word...

Atheists, and unbelievers, live by the faith on the "fact" they have read in a book, or encyclopedia, or, maybe, by the faith of the word of some so-called scientist... I am sure none of you have been a real eyewitness of the so-called scientific proofs, have you? You just got it from secundary of third party source of information... I mean, you weren´t there, right there and right in time when all these "scientific demonstrations" took place...

So, you are also a person abide by the faith... just as we are... being the great difference, our faith is the only and real God, Creator of all that exist, the God you, his creatures, denies...

Anyway, I have spent (or wasted) so much time with you, unbelievers... God does not need you... you need Him... just do not want to admit it...

The end of times is just about... see you then...


Hell N0 7 years ago

Israel, that was one of the most idiotic and spiritually dead posts I've read on these hubs. You think you know what the Lake of Fire is but your blindness has you worshipping a god that you wished didn't exist. God will never torture anybody forever. That is a Christian hoax. And if you hate science so much, it's probably because you don't see how it corroborates with real scripture. But be assured, there is a Lake of Fire, and it is where you will be cleaned of the filth infested doctrines of the church. Then you will be saved.

By the way, for this hubber to say that the Lake of Fire is physical and in the center of the Earth, shows how void of the holy spirit he is.

Carrie Bradshaw profile image

Carrie Bradshaw 7 years ago from Manhattan

I appreciate your hub.  I read most of the comments, but really want to address the "proof" issue (that the burden of proof is on the one claiming there is a hell).  First, I'll address the word study of Hell in the Bible.  Then, I'll address the "proof" issue (Privateye2500 ~ this is for YOU ~ you have a gift, by the way, that God can use mightily):

I did a brief word study, using a Strong's concordance, on the word HELL.  Looks like there are basically four different words used in the original languages of the Bible.  The only one used in the Old Testament was #7585: She-owl (sheh-ole’) meaning hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates: grave, hell, pit.

The New Testament consists of three words for HELL: #1067: geenna (gheh’-en-nah) used as a name for the place (or state) of everlasting punishment: - hell; #86: hades (hah’-dace) “Hades” or the place (state) of departed souls: - grave, hell; and #5020: tartaroo (tar-tar-o’-o) the deepest abyss of Hades; to incarcerate in eternal torment: - cast down to hell.

The point being that as some religions (even those of no religion) teach that hell is simply the grave in which we’re buried when we die, the Bible obviously refers to a place called HELL.  All words show that this is a place beyond death, a place of our departed souls.

Jesus said in John 14:6 that “I AM the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE; NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.”

THE BURDEN OF PROOF:

Based on the scripture of Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace (unmerited favor because of the death/shed blood of Jesus Christ for our sin) are ye saved through FAITH (in Jesus Christ), and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, NOT OF WORKS (being a good person), lest any man should boast."

So we're saved through FAITH in what?  What is FAITH?  Hebrews 11:1 states, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."  How can the believer PROVE something the unbeliever can't see?  This is the miracle of faith.  Faith comes FIRST, then the human (blind) eyes shall SEE through Spiritual eyes.

John Chapter 3 speaks of being born of water (of your mother) and being born of the Spirit (salvation by faith in Jesus Christ).  You can't possibly "SEE" the spiritual truth if you first don't have FAITH to be "born again ~ of the Spirit."  YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

It was never God's will to send anyone to Hell.  This is why He's waiting so long (to the point of man's self-destruction) to return, giving every person as much time as is left to "choose" His path of everlasting LIFE.  The Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9: "The Lord is not slacking concerning His promised return, as some men count to slacking, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that anyone should perish (eternal death), but that all should come to repentance (salvation = eternal life).

I truly share this in love.  I know everyone here is meant to be here.  They are meant to be discussing these things.  Privateye, YOU obviously CARE about people (or care to defend your stance) to a nearly exhaustive level.  God can use that to His glory.  Have faith in Him, and take as many people with you to Heaven as you have time to!!

AMEN!

hct 7 years ago

I do not think that hell is a place to be interpreted literally. We are living in a physical world. We acquire our understanding of all matters by reasoning with our minds coupled with our physical eyes.

Jesus cannot explain something cannot be seen without using the physical aspects of things in this world, otherwise we would not be able to understand.

Hell is something cannot be seen as I understand and if a person is in that 'place' after death his spirit is in a state of suffering just like the feeling of being burned in fire.

If a person believe in Christ and carry out his commandments until the end, his spirit will enter heaven, again is a place which is spiritual and we always understand to be a happy place.

If he does not believe in him, the bible says his spirit will go to that place of suffering.

The only one used in the Old Testament was #7585: sheowl (sheh-ole’) meaning hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates: grave, hell, pit.

Old Testament verses are as follows:

(Hebrew #7585 sheowl; translated the same as Greek #86 hades)

De 32:22; 2Sa 22:6; Job 11:8 & 26:6; Ps 9:17, 16:10, 18:5, 55:15, 86:13, 116:3 and 189:8; Pr 5:5, 7:27, 9:18, 15:11 & 24, 23:14 and 27:20; Isa 5:14, 14:9 & 14:15, 28:15 & 28:18 and 57:9; Eze 31:16 & 31:17, 32:21 & 32:27; Am 9:2; Jon 2:2; Hab 2:5.

(Greek #1067 geenna)

Mt 5:22 & 5:29, 10:28, 18:9, 23:15 and 23:33; M'r 9:43, 9:45 and 9:47; Lu 12:5; Jas 3:6.

(Greek #86 hades)

Mt 11:23 & 16:18; Lu 10:15 & 16:23; Ac 2:27 & 2:31; Re 1:18, 6:8, 20:13 and 20:14.

(Greek #5020 tartaroo)

2 Pe 2:4

So, while some commentors wish to leave out portions of the definitions of these words and deny there is some other meaning, let them read the actual definitions and applicable scripture passages here ~ for they have no excuse! It's in the Word, and it is truth. AMEN.

This story has been told and re-told and re-told.

Read more about the de-bunking at:

http://snopes.com/religion/wellhell.asp

Hell is encountered in your life here on Earth when you (unknowingly) use the power of God within you to (unknowingly) create circumstances in your life that cause suffering. When you realize Jesus is God in you, you can use this power to create unlimited happiness (i.e. Heaven) in your life on Earth. Satan is the "characteristic" of completely denying the power of God in you. This denial creates nasty nasty hells for you to suffer through in this life and perhaps future ones until you finally realize:

God is buried in you (and all of us). This is the grave...the world of death we live in now. When God awakens in you, you will see it happen as told SYMBOLICALLY in scripture...the birth FROM ABOVE of a son...who calls you father...

Read Goddard or my hubs and it will all become clear.

Christiangirl11 6 years ago

I noticed something really interesting after scrolling down the comments. There are some very angry people who have attacked this post and it makes me question why?

However I think I have the answer....

There are many who have experienced God's power, including myself.

Every three seconds a child dies in Africa. Whilst on this earth, we put those poor people through hell. Yet, we consciously decide to ignore them, buy a new BMW and book a $5000 holiday. Life is a test and we are failing miserably....

Only through the grace of the Lord Jesus can we truly see who is ruling this world.

There is a psychic turned Christian, called Brian flynn who became a devout Christian after finding out his nice spirit guides were really demons fighting God.

There is a lot of evidence pertaining to the Bible being real.

We really all should weigh up this evidence and make a decision......before it is too late.

Lee Strobel (an ex-atheist, Yale Law graduate and journalist) spent 2 years researching the Bible, Jesus and God. In the end, he knelt down on one knee and accepted Jesus into his life. He says that his life ever since has been incredible.

It is even reported that Charles Darwin denounced his views on evolution and rekindled his faith in Jesus Christ whilst on his death bed (as reported by Lady Hope) I obtained that information whilst reading Maurice Rawling's book- To Hell and Back.

There are may accounts of where people's lives have been dramatically changed, atheists converted, people healed of cancer and miracles witnessed.

God works through people and it is very difficult to argue against a changed life and to refute God's Hand in that process.

The one true path is God and Jesus.I have seen His hand so much in life. I have witnessed miracles and had prayers answered.

God is real and I pray that everyone finds Him and His Son before they depart this earth.

May God bless you all,

xx

You all christian might be right, hell might exist, a jesus might be the only way. But let me tell you something your god/God is cruel. How can he condemn a person to eternal damnation just for being themselves, how can he give freedom of choice only so people submit to him. What makes this world beautiful is the immense numbers of road that people can take and the awesome part is that if any of the road aviable isn't for you, you can create one. A truly loving God would understand this and accept people by their differences. But you religious people are so cruel condemning everyone that doesn't follow your path, maybe that's why you identify so much with that cruel god of yours, because you are cruel people. I was once a hardcore christian and i accepted jesus in my heart and tried to convert people to christianism, but its was very difficult to me to tell that they are wrong and i was right especially because they were good people even better than me. I had the opportunity to live in another country were cristiannism is no the predominant religion and i found that people over there are so much nicer and great humans; how could God condemn them just for trying to find him by a different path, why would God condemn atheist isn't their right no to believe in him. Good fathers accept their son no matter who they are, i know the limit is when your son becomes someone who hurts people (but that's a complicated subject which might need of some knowledge in psychiatry) but still one deserves hell no one, that is just to horrible. I know i am human and i might be wrong probably i am wrong so i pray to God whoever is him to forgive me and tell me if there a path i have to go then i would submit if it bring good to the world, but since i changed my ways i become happier i enjoy more things a, maybe God is with me and is helping me to forge this new path; helping me, his black sheep. I know what you are going to say, something like that satan is controlling me or whatever but is not to satan were my prayers go but to God and Jesus i still try to find them i no longer accept jesus because i want to be saved from hell (well maybe a little bit Xd because of hell) but because i want to know who they really are, i don't trust the bible cause it was made by man and no matter what a great pice of literature it is it contradict itself a lot just like how human do, who knows it might have some truth to it. Well i will continue to forge my path and find God and hope its the right thing i still believe in jesus and i don't regret accepting him as my savior but i just have to look for the truth.

Ps: i found out that the records of the screaming are in fact record of a part of the movie called the baron's blood just look for it in youtube

And we all been given the freedom of choice, to choose Jesus as our personal Saviour and Redeemer and let Him help us on our path to salvation / eternal life with Him. Through Him, we are clean. And there is no other way to God but through Jesus.

But if we ignore Jesus and choose our own way, which is already death without Him. We choose hell.

Terrible!! As long as I live I will make sure with everybody I come to know (frienship) if they excepted Jesus into their hearts as their one and only true Savior and Redeemer.

Blessings to you all.

I am here to affirm that hell is real because I know that demons are real. I am not here to simply quote scriptures but to testify that the Bible is real about hell. So if there is hell there must also be heaven. This means we have a choice to make. I hope you would take the time to read this short story / testimony, YOUR CHOICE YOUR DESTINY and you’ll see what I am saying.

First read YOUR CHOICE YOUR DESTINY at

Hell is real and that's final...its not a something made up in your mind. Yes t is your choice whether you beleive in it or not..Once you had a dramatic life experience or you have encountered the Presence of Jesus Chrisy thats when you'll change your mind. You may not believe in it now but once the day comes and you have no way into heaven that's when you'll believe but it'll be to late.. But the day hasn't come you still have time.

Yes i may sound sound like some REligious nut but in all reality im speaking the truth. The Jesus said "I am the Way The truth and the Light"No iam not brainwashed..God has Blessed me with a burden and its for people. He has shown hells fire and it gets me angry how much the devil is a deciever..I hope you don't realize that the devil was holding you back from the truth before its to late..

I believe there is hell, and that core of earth is just a sample of hell to show you how serious the real one up there can be. Hell is located up after the seven skys no doubt.

And these screams we are hearing are people who are doing there grave hell bid just until judgement day then they will be sent to the real hell fire because real hell fire is not on earth.


Reality 5 years ago

I think Christianity and a great deal of it's followers (including a large number of the people who posted here) are insane. You say Hell is real: well, prove it.

Instead of relying on anything logical, Christians use Hell as a scare tactic to coerce weak-minded people to believe in they way they believe. This tactic of using Hell to scare people is nothing more than an appeal to cowardice. It's all Christians have, because when you really dig down and start asking questions and start pointing out the "translational errors" and contradictions in the Bible, Hell is all they have to arm themselves with.

Most Christians don't even know the origins of their own religion. And not one single writer in the Bible even knew Jesus. The earliest was at least 20 years after Jesus supposedly died. It was Paul who decided that Jesus was not dead, but was "risen again." Paul made it all up on the fly. What Paul didn't know was, the world was bigger than just the Roman Empire, and the "universal savior" would not be known by other cultures for THOUSANDS OF YEARS. Seems unfair that a universal savior would be unknown to everyone, doesn't it? Why didn't God just make us all aware of Jesus? Oh that's right...he gave us free will. If it wasn't for free will, you Christians would be short of a weak explanation! Yes, God gives you free will, even though he knows in advance how you will use that free will. He gave Hitler free will, which he then used to take away the free will of 6 million people. Wow, that seems fair, doesn't it?!! LOL!!!

There is NOT ONE historically accurate piece of evidence that Christ EVER EXISTED outside the Bible. Here you have someone who performed miracles in front of thousands of people, yet not one person documented it. We have tons of documentation of Egyptian leaders, but nothing at all about the Man-God who raised the dead and walked on water. Not even a simple drawing or sketch. And don't quote me the one little bit from Josephus..it's been proven to have been forged. Jesus as a historical figure is non-existent. Why?

There is not one bit of evidence outside the Bible that Hebrews were slaves in Egypt. The census of Luke is a complete lie; the Romans were meticulous record keepers and other censuses are well-documented. Luke conjured his census up in order to fulfill prophecy.

The Holy Trinity is the biggest piece of dogma ever invented. It was written by MEN, and the process was well-documented. Somebody explain how the Father is the Son, but the Son isn't the Father. When you are stupid enough to buy that, then all the other retarded lies in the Bible are easy to believe. Things like that make Christians good followers for politicians...they can say whatever they want to, and Christians simply believe it without question (as long as the politician says he believes in God and prays..all others are heathens).

The Bible says Bats are birds, and rabbits chew their cud, amongst many other things. These are both 100% false statements. This is because MEN wrote the Bible, and at that time those MEN did not know better. There's no other explanation for that. If those simple things were not known to the authors who wrote them, then why should I believe the more complicated things written in there? It clearly is the word of man and not any supreme being.

The Bible is filled with contradictions that Christians have to overlook in order to continue with their persecuting of all of us "heathens" out here in the world. Christians can't explain why people of other religions can have equally powerful religious "experiences" that don't involve Jesus or the Christian God. Buddhists often live far more saintly lives than any Christian you'll ever meet, and Buddhism has existed for far longer, but all Buddhists are wrong according to the arrogant Christian. The Christian hater will always be right, even though they can't prove they are right about one single thing that they preach.

Any God who punishes all these generations of people just because Eve screwed up, doesn't even possess the simplest of human abilities to forgive. Your God knew that the 50,000 children who starved to death in Africa yesterday were going to starve MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO, because God is all-knowing. Your God created atoms out of nothing, but for some reason can not keep children from being molested. For some reason God was more active in the past, when there was no way to record any of his activity, but now he relies on maniacs and ignorant haters to do his bidding.

When Jesus returns, what side of the Earth will he show up on? Since the Earth isn't flat anymore, how will we all see him, and do you think he'll fly past Jupiter and Mars, his robe glowing red-hot upon re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere? When you raise your head and hands in praise, you are pointing in a different direction than somebody who does so in Australia...is Heaven all throughout space? If so, why can't it be seen? How far away is it? Does God's body surround everything in outer space?

Everybody calls God "he," then that implies that "he" has an appendage specific to all males...if so, what does "he" use that appendage for? It's a simple question...answer it. After you die do you still have to pee? Are there toilets in heaven, and if so, are their also plumbers or do you just pray for the clog to leave the pipe?

Christianity is becoming less educated and more reactionary. The reason is, every single scientific discipline that arises proves more and more that Christianity is a farce. It's nothing more than a club for arrogant morons who think that they all know something "special" that the rest of us heathens don't know. You people are just descendants of witch burning, flat-Earth believing, slave owning haters. You are weak and can't think for yourselves, so you shift everything off onto your make-believe God. Your people commit crimes, lust for sex and are actually bigger criminals than those you point your fingers at.

I laugh at your scary stories and defy you to prove what you say. Saying you know because you "feel" something is B.S. You don't know anything, which includes the origins of your own religion. It's far easier for you to accept everything without question than it is to face facts, and the facts are that your God will let even more children starve to death today, he will let more children be molested, and he will watch as women get raped and he will do NOTHING to stop any of it. And your sorry A$$ will keep right on thinking a bogey man is making people do bad things and a God-man is watching over you...LOLZ!

Visit www.randi.org. There's 1.2 million dollars to any one of you freaks who can prove what you say in this post. Go get the money and tithe some of it, because for some reason your God needs man's money...

You should read Francis Chans book called "Erasing Hell"....he goes into the arguments for and against hell in that book. Yes he does believe in hell...and the book answers many of the objections raised here.

We cannot expect Gods infinite thoughts of justice to fit into our finite expectations.

The question isn't, do we WANT to believe in hell.....but COULD we believe it if that's what God taught.

Stevechops 4 years ago

What you have in these comments is the unrepentant sinners trying to relieve their consciences of the consequences of their sins...They love their sin and therefore refuse to repent and in turn try to make reality change, that they can sin with gusto and be at ease doing so..

What you unrepentant don't understand is God doesn't want anyone to perish, hence why Christ died and why there is such testimonies as these..You say its fear tactics, well die in your sin and you will wish you were terrified beyond reason to have changed your mind when there was still time..Do you not think you will be reminded of your every foolish argument that you made in these times..

Ive been a christian 27 years, what i was saved from in this life and the next was exceptional and im greatful to God for saving Grace in the Name of Jesus..

Testimony

I was born in 1967, Northern Ireland ! at the age of 5 my parents immigrated to Australia with myself and older brother and sister ! After my parents broke up 8 years later, my mother returned to N.Ireland with us four children, the 4th being our new younger brother.

My life took a major turn for the worst ! at 13 years old i was drinking regular and strongly into solvent abuse, commonly known as Glue Sniffing !

After a 3 year addiction age 16 years old i was very ill from it and under weight , being 6-7 stn weight ! My addiction was severe and i would have killed to support my habbit. Age 17 years of age with a criminal record already dating back 4 years, with offenses such as arson , criminal damage and intimidation relating to Northern Irelands then political issues !

One terrible night i attempted to kill my family with the intent of taking what money i could to support my addiction, already high on solvent i fled from our home after the attack to find myself at some Born Again Christians houses near 2 miles away !

There i was collapsed on their doorsteps, they took me to hospital and a clinic for alcoholics , as there was no treatment for solvent abuse !

Admitted into the clinic i woke through the night to see one of the christians by my bed praying for me ! in my physical poor state i went back to sleep almost immediately !

The next morning i awakened and my addiction was completely gone ! Gone as though i had never been addicted or used any solvents ! To my surprise, i no longer had taste for alcohol or cigarettes either ! It was as though i was a new person inside !

Once of no will power and weak and addicted ! To now an effortless stability unknown to me ! Two weeks later i discovered whilst still in the hospital, that the words of my mouth had changed, strangely i was speaking without any cursing or loose talk !

I was brought before the Doctor and i told my story to him, he was very alarmed and said " Don't try to stop to much all at once" I could only reply "Doctor i haven't stopped anything" This isn't my doing !

During my stay in the clinic, we had various rehabilitation treatment and activities, one being work shop. It was an internal woodwork class for making things !

I desided i wanted to make a wooden jewellery box for my mother, to show i was sorry and loved her ! When i was making the jewellery box i came to a part that i wanted to fix a piece to the lid and the workshop supervisor brought me some glue, to my amazement it was exactly the same glue i had only a week or so earlier used to get high !

So i used it, the air filled with the fumes from it and i finished my work and returned it to the supervisor. When i gave it to him i said "do you know why im in here?" His response was " yes for alcohol addiction" i said "do you see that glue you gave me to work with "? He said"yes" i said " I had been addicted to that and went through a 500 ml tin of it a day, for the last 3 years, this is why im here" He panicked and started to apologize. Bless him i told him "don't worry Jesus has freed me im not addicted no more." He had no way of knowing as i was in a clinic for alcoholics ! But God wasn't afraid to allow His work to be tested ! He knew what He had done through Jesus to free me !

This is my testimony to the Glory of God, That Jesus is The Christ, Messiah the Son Who was born and died and risen from the grave, and Is now seated at the right Hand of the Father on High ! Jesus is Lord 25 years later I am pleased to say I know His Grace and His Mercy endures forever, He is Lord.....

Jesus is Lord

The follow up, for those interested..

Some time down the road, after my release from Hospital. I was laying in my bed in the night getting ready to go to sleep ! Looking up at the ceiling in my bedroom i began to feel a strange tingling sensation in my chest, it was very deep and centered in my heart ! The sensation grew stronger and i found myself pushing my chest up toward the ceiling to get closer. I knew this was God touching my heart ! The feeling intensified like nothing ive ever experienced before.

My attention was drawn to my doorway, leading onto the upper landing, which i had left open. As i was still experiencing the strong tingling sensation in my heart, i seen the outline figure of a person standing in the doorway ! The outline was like light but the whole figure was transparent. I looked all over this figure to make sure what i was seeing was really there, i took my eyes off it and looked back and it was still there. I could see the head shoulders and arms and legs all the way to the floor. When i looked to the right hand of the figure it continued longer than the other hand and arm, then into a long sharp point about a foot an a half long. This was a type of sword !

A couple of weeks later, i was at a Bible/prayer meeting at the home of the man who prayed at my bedside in Hospital ! There was probably around 8-10 of us attending. Some of the others were from where i lived and were new converts also. Some still smoked etc, and during a break a group of us went outside ! When we stood together outside and were discussing our new lives etc, one of the girls said "has anyone felt that tingling feeling in your hearts ?" At least 5 of the group said yes at the same time including me ! It turned out that we were all experiencing the touch of God and were all keeping it to ourselves ! Speaking for myself, i didn't think anyone would believe me, everyone knew i used to use solvents so i thought they would think i was tripping !

Glory to God in Jesus name, In His great Wisdom He knew that in later times this experience would be an undeniable proof testifying to His Name. I can happily say that this was my first encounter with the touch of God, and even more happily say it wasn't the last. There has not been a day gone by for 26 years now that i haven't felt His touch ! He has made His presence known to me countless times.

In the doorway of my room that night, i believe an Angel of God was standing over me or maybe Jesus. I don't have all the answers, but i do know Who does ! Ive seen others who were saved the same time as me and experienced similar things debate with others regardless of shame or embarrassment ! This isn't some claim to fame, its simply an account of an undeniable experience that cant be contested because I and others are living proof that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ Who came to this World and was Crucified and risen from the dead !

Jesus is Lord

I believe this is a hoax-the sources cite other sources in a circle,the sound is from a movie,etc.,but as to Hell's existence,though I do not believe it does,I hope it does. Not to punish the wicked,but because I want to go there. I may be kinky,or perverted,or just weird,but I want to be tortured naked forever. I desire eternal agony as a slave. Hell is my Heaven. I know many people who feel this way,but rarely share it-we are not a silent majority,of course,but a sizable minority. I am confident God,if he exists,will grant us the endless death of torment we crave.

Attention all Bible thumpers! Don't procreate!

I don't really have the time to explain in exact detail how your argument (Omg! The Earth's core is Hell/Hades/whatever and people heard the sounds of souls screaming!) makes no sense. Here's just a taste. The Earth's crust (on land) is 35 - 70 km thick and (in the ocean) is 5 - 10 km thick. The entire mantle is 2,900 km thick and the entire core is 3, 500 km thick (http://scign.jpl.nasa.gov/?learn/plate1.htm). The deepest hole man has ever dug into the Earth's crust is a meager 12,345 meters deep (http://en.wikipedia.org/?wiki/?Kola_Superdeep_Borehole), which hardly scratches the surface.

You believe that people heard screams from "Hell/Hades" which you believe is located in the inner core of the Earth. "The speed at which sound propagates (or travels from its source) is directly influenced by both the medium through which it travels and the factors affecting the medium, such as altitude, humidity and temperature for gases like air" (http://www.indiana.edu/?~emusic/acoustics/speed.htm). Do you have any idea how dense the rock is in the mantle? Do you have any idea how sound is affected by the molten ore in the core? The loudest sound ever heard by humans was when the volcano on the island of Krakatoa erupted in 1883 (http://en.wikipedia.org/?wiki/Krakatoa). It could be heard 4,800 km away, but you must take in consideration that that sound was traveling through air, not the super dense mantle, nor the molten ore of the core. Plus, the core and the mantle's thickness combined is 6,400 km, and add 70 km for the crust. There is no way that science backs you up. Keep dreaming and you're welcome.

?"If God is willing to prevent evil but unable to do so, then he's impotent. If he's able to prevent evil but not willing to, then he's corrupt. And so, since evil certainly exists, God is either impotent or corrupt and therefore cannot be God." ~Daniel Quinn (If They Give You Lined Paper Write Sideways)


Nonsense 4 years ago

Hell is an ancient myth that was transformed over time into the modern myth we have today. When it this idea was first conceived there was no fire and brimstone, it was just a place where some went for a short time. The actual place called "Hell" which is actually pronounced "Hillell" and by other names a pit outside the temple where sacrificial lambs were burned as the priests had an abundance of these at passover. It's also in some cases where the dead were thrown into to avoid the spread of disease. People who did not have a better explanation for what happens after death conceived of this for those who did not lead exemplary lives from simply observing lava from volcano's. We have grown so much since those days. Let's not hold on to old ideas that simply no longer have a place in modern society.

These voices from below has been proven to be a hoax. The recordings come from an old film from the 1970's. It is a ploy to instill fear into people to push them to convert and to keep those who are thinking of dropping the faith from leaving it. No hell or heaven for that matter has been proven to exist. Let's use some reason here. There are many books by recognized scholars that trace the emergence of this idea of a hell from it's infancy to the modern one. The information is there, let's use our minds and reason. It wouldn't hurt to at least read these books. Don't be afraid if your ideas are challenged. I mean don't you care if your beliefs are true? If you do then I am certain that reading a book on this topic would be welcome.

So do you nutjobs who believe in such a hateful ego-driven God believe that some newborn who was alive for five minutes then died right away, or a child from another part of the world who was raised by a family who never taught him about your Jesus or God will burn for eternity because he never established a personal relationship with Jesus? Do you know how flawed & absolutely INSANE this mentality is? I believe in a higher power. However, I'm not some scared sheep who is running from or living in fear of some information that was turned inside out & taken in a literal sense, over many of years time.

And to comment on these stupid fucking claims that hell resides in the core of the Earth and you have audio proof of lost souls screaming for 14 seconds (like the spirit world communicated with sight, sound, smell, etc. you fucking stupid asses).

It all comes down to fifty/fifty. Half of the replies that I read here were intelligent. Half of them were nonsensical claims by a bunch of scared sheep. I'll never make you sane, you'll never make me crazy. It is what it is.

If hell is real, what exactly will be burning there? In case you haven't noticed, we all die and our bodies decay. Some of us are even cremated and have our ashes spread over a wide area.

So what exactly will be burning in hell? People are quick to say "your soul!" But what exactly is a soul? What is it made of? Magical "soul" particles? What evidence do you have for this? And what evidence do you have that a "soul" is flammable?

Furthermore, combustion is a reaction that converts reactants to products. In other words, when something burns it BURNS UP. If there is proof for these "soul particles" exist, where is the proof that they magically regenerate to be combusted over and over again? And if they don't burn up, how can you say that they're burning in the first place?

Please post some good scientific studies. Let's see the evidence!!


Nonsense 4 years ago

Sywebster I totally agree. To add to your point. A body feels because it has nerve endings, without nerve endings you can't feel a thing. A soul as it is typically described is bodiless, you need a body to have nerves, don't you? Are we to believe that when we die, God gives you a new body just so that you feel the pain of eternal torment. A body that regenerates itself so you can continue to be tortured. This is supposed to be a loving God? If this is God then I'll take the boogieman, he can't be any worse than that right?

Amanah. I respect your right to believe in anything you chose. However, does it makes sense that a God that is supposed to love you more than you know, more than any parent could possibly love you, even for one instance allow someone to suffer eternal torment. If God is in control then god allowed all these different faiths to exist. Surely, a god who does not demonstrate his existence to anyone in any tangible way would blame you for not believing or more importantly not being a Christian. Do you really believe that God only cares that you are Christian and not a good human being? Does it make sense that God condemns those that are good hearted kind people to hell simply because they belong to a different faith or don't share the same beliefs as the Christian faith? What if you are born into a different faith, you are automatically condemned. Could you possibly conceive of sending a good person to eternal torment simply because they are not christian? I would not allow my worst enemy to suffer such eternal torment and I am supposed to be like a dirty rag to God, yet God would allow this? I ask you to think about this before jumping on board with those that share the belief that there is a hell.


Vann 4 years ago

Ok all I know is id rather live right than to find out there is a hell and We've all been deceived this whole time. The media and movies make it so convincing that things can be made up but that's the trick of the devil and the devil has enough friends and I don't want to be one them! Just a thought but bottom line live right and find out for yourself what us Christians believe in and have so much faith in.

One way in,no way out


Nonsense 4 years ago

Vann. You say that you would rather live right than to find out there is a hell. What you are admitting is that you don't know but believe and call some things that challenge your beliefs, such as the media, the trick of a devil. something you can't possibly prove actually exists. So, basically it's a betting game. You bet on the right horse and you win, you bet on the wrong one and you lose, so better bet for the one that makes the biggest threat or points the biggest gun to your head, at least you'll be protected if you live a good and just life? This is fear that is pushed by religions and you made my point. God created us and the different cultures and religions, if you fall on the wrong one then you are basically screwed. I ask you again is this the workings of a loving God? Does this make sense to you? Never mind what your church or bible might say, I am asking you in your opinion, does this make sense. 2/3 or more of the world is not christian, that means of the 7 billion people that live on this earth, 66% or approximately 4.5 billion people will end up in a fire pit and tormented for eternity simply because they are not Christian? Think about this and ask yourself if it makes sense and is this the workings of a loving God?


Paul 4 years ago

I didn't learn about hell from church or from pastors. I was an atheist. I learn about hell existence from the paranormal activities that appeared in my life. I know that God loves me enough to reveal to me somethings most people don't come to realize or want to talk about. Demons are real and so I must conclude that hell must be real. I have been visited by demons and have been possessed by spirits twice. I invite you to read my blog at http://CertaintyOfWhatIsComing.BlogSpot.com

Thank you for posting this very important subject as a warning to others.

God Bless,

Paul


Nonsense 4 years ago

Paul. Before you conclude that any experience of demons you claim to have you must first eliminate any psychosomatic explanations. Demonic possessions have medical and psychological explanations that you simply can't brush aside because you chose to decide that these experiences are real to you. You can believe whatever you chose to believe, but, you must first eliminate any other explanations before you can conclude that this is real, even for yourself. In fact I would argue that you owe it to yourself to do this. There have been near death experiences as well of those who traveled to the "other side" who came back and confirmed that there are no demons and no hell. So, if you chose that your experiences are real but chose to ignore the experiences of others that contradict your experiences, then you are picking and choosing what to believe. So, again I ask you to make sure you have covered all your bases before deciding that demons or hell exists.

Buddhism is a decent faith, please don't let it get caught up in the absurdity of prophesy like the Judeo Christian faiths do, it's a scare tactic intended to instill fear into the hearts of its followers and to keep people from leaving the faith.

But, I wasn't expecting you to be open to the idea that you might be wrong. Either way, this story has already been proven to be a hoax, but you won't listen to that either.

@grow up, If you combine a carnal view to scripture with fear, blind ego, self-righteous pride, a hidden desire for vengeance and spark the religious engine with a pharisitical spirit. You get a determined believer of hell. To suppose that God would bring beings into existence for both His purpose and pleasure who He knew in advance without mercy would be infinite losers by that existence, is to charge him a hypocrite with the utmost malignity. Did you honestly expect Arkwriter to side with you? The biggest problem with the bible is it has suffered more by its exponents than it has from its opponents.

@SwordofManticor. You make some good points. Of course I am aware that people like Arkwriter are not going to listen to reason, reason based not only on the "logic" they use to justify their beliefs but also on education. But, I always hope that something would resonate in him and people like him. I know he doesn't care if what he believes is true, otherwise, he would have no fear into reading about the history of his faith and how it developed. But, somewhere down deep there might be a curiosity that can overcome fear, enough so that he at least investigates rather than run in fear and disdain. I guess if I said nothing, then in some ways that would be worse.

@grow up, in all of my encounters with Christians who believe in hell, I can count on one hand how many have shown the curiosity of why I believe that hell does not exist and that all (including Hitler) is saved. The rest are not interested. Why? It is written that God made man in His image. Sadly, these Christians have repaid Him back by doing the same to Him. They don’t want those who reject God to be saved. Christ spoke of such people in the parable of the prodigal son. They are known as the older brother in this parable. He refused to join in the celebration of his sinful brother's return. He felt as if he labored for His Father in vain. To most of them, the belief of hell motivates them to worship God, not because they love God (1 John 4:18). A man fears death as a child fears the dark, and the fear increases for a child when fairy tales are told to her, so is it for the man. They ask me what is the purpose of teaching the gospel if all are saved? I answer "out of the joy of salvation for all". I do not believe in hell, but the thought of Universal salvation makes me want to scream to all that our Father is the greatest love of all. The responses I get from atheists are responses of respect and curiosity because I am not shoving the doctrine of hell down their throats. The one thing all atheists understand is love, and when you talk to them about who God really is, they show a hint of hope in their face. Religion kills and drives people away from God, but faith, hope, love and mercy draws them closer. I left the church because of its controlling nature. I am not a good Christian and never have been. I tried and tried and failed every time. So I stopped trying and left it to God to deal with. When I tried, I lost my fire for God. Now that I stopped trying, my fire is back. The true gospel is not that Christ saved some and the rest go to hell, that is not good news to me. The true Gospel is that Christ paid the price for all mankind, and He will get what He paid for. The universal reconciliation of all back to the Father threw Christ.


Old ideas 4 years ago

Strange that some people can't let go of ancient ideas that simply don't have their place in the modern world anymore. We need a new bible, one that reflects today's reality instead of old ideas thousands of years old meant for a people and a time in history where this kind of thinking and beliefs were common.


Huh? 4 years ago

I can't believe there are still people out there that believe in these ridiculous ancient myths?!?! Really? Aren't we past this nonsense yet!!!! We have learned so much in the past 2000-5000 years, we don't live in ignorance anymore. Thousands of years ago they didn't know what was going on around them so they created myths to explain things, hell is one of them. Besides, when you're dead you no longer have a body, without a body you can't feel pain, no nerves no pain, how is a soul supposed to burn in pain in the center of the earth anyway? Pure nonsensical ancient myths that some people, steeped in ignorance, can't seem to let go!!!

@arkwriter, and I suppose that makes you feel better now?

I have read a comment that those that go to hell do not have a body therefore they cannot feel the pain. The Lord Jesus Christ taught that both the good people who believe in Him and also the bad people who do not believe in Him will be resurrected (Jn. 5:28-29). Both will have resurrected bodies. The saved ones will enjoy everlasting life in Heaven. The bad ones will go away into everlasting judgment in hell (Mt. 25:46). When you are still alive, be wise and make the right choice by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Him to Heaven.

You know what AW, you remind me of a quote written by Evelyn Uyemura. She wrote "We do not read the Bible the way it is; we read it the way we are." George Bernard Shaw also wrote "No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: He is always convinced that it says what he means." And last but not least, Leonard Ravenhill nailed it when he wrote "The Holy Book of the living God suffers more from its exponents today than from its opponents."

You need to focus more on Paul's letters to get a better understanding and appreciation of our Father.

You can quote anyone you like and it is not going to do you any good. The Lord Jesus Christ said: "And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him--the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day." (John 12:47-48).

The thing is, you don't have the ears to hear, nor eyes to see the spiritual message of God,s plan. You teach spiritual terrorism. You tell people that if they don't get right with God, they will go to a hell. You use fear of punishment to promote God. You give Him double standards. John12:47-48 is Christ warning the Jews (Not gentiles), that a day has been chosen when Jerusalem will be judged, and it was.

Please read John 12 47-48 again carefully. Jesus did not say that His words are only for the Jews. He said, "If anyone hears My words and does not believe, . . . ." The word "anyone" is all inclusive, and it means every person on earth. That includes you and me. God's punishment in hell is not spiritual terrorism. It is God's justice.

If you read Revelation 20:12-15 it says very clearly; "And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. "

There is a lake of fire. If your name is not written in the Book of Life you will be in the lake of fire. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the one and only Savior, and repent of your sins, otherwise you will be in the lake of fire and be tormented forever and ever.

Ahh, forever and ever. Why not just say for an eternity and another eternity. Your translations are so off, it is no wonder you have been brainwashed. Yes there is a Lake of Fire, sadly you have no idea what and where it is. It appears you feel content in believing that Christ will fail. So may you live the rest of your life in fear of going to your pagan hell. I no longer don't.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." (Rom. 8:1). For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba, Father." (Rom. 8:14:15). Christians who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and who walk in the Spirit have no fear of condemnation or death because they are the children of God who has promised a place in Heaven for them. Only those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ and live in sin will receive eternal punishment in hell. You can still go to heaven if you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior , repent of your sins and be baptized into Him (Acts 2: 38). It is still not too late to do that. May the Lord Jesus Christ help you.

Acts 20:27 tells us that Paul taught us all what God wants us to know, yet he never warned the gentiles about Gehenna fire as Christ did to the Jews. Ask yourself this. Could it be possible that your belief in hell is wrong?
