    Of couse I believe in hell.  The Bible plainly states there is one and I am sure that I would not want to go there at all  !!!    In fact, in the very end, when it all comes down, and the Lord has come his final time, he will cast the Antichrist into the very depths of it.   

    I have read Revelations, and have also read multiple books on the end times.  I do not stress over what is going on right now, it is all written and will play out the way the Bible says it will.   The whole challenge, problem and what disgusts me most of all (am I supposed to be disgusted)  is that all anyone in this world that I do not live in would have had to do was to follow the Ten Commandments, but man being the sinners we are, would not follow ten simple commands.   As I reacll, this is why the Israelites wandered for 40 years in the desert..they just couldn't get it.   

    It also plainly states in the Bible exactly who will go to hell.  All of the idolaters, liars, aldulterers, whoremongers, thieves, and a few others- most of all, the people who refuse to keep the Lords day holy.

    Anyone who does not believe in hell  LOL  will probaly end up there for lack of knowledge........

    no,  I believe in a loving higher power, there is no revenge or retribution for our lives here, just the opportunity to return and improve our character and live our best life , when we are done with our journey, then we are able to reach our heaven, or Nirvanna or whatever you believe

    I believe in Hell. I also believe that God doesn't send anyone to Hell. We're quite capable of doing that ourselves by estranging ourselves from God.

    According to the bible, there is a hell, but not like you think or have been led to believe. Hell is not a pit of fire or torture chamber for men's souls after a life of sin. Nowhere in the in the bible is this said.

    It DOES say the false profit and the Beast will be thrown into the pit of fire for all eternity, That it does say.  But what about us? It is clear there is to be some serious consequence for the human soul. In my opinion, and from what I have taken from the bible, is that "Hell" is the complete and utter separation from God forever. A soul in heaven is rewarded, by being in perfect peace with God, there is no sadness or fear or regret.

    If your earthy death was painful or traumatic, the soul would not remember, as this would cause distress.  A soul in hell would not be afforded this, and would spend eternity searching for peace, and never find it.  God gave us a choice, to be with Him forever or be separated from Him forever, lost in a void.

    This is my personal belief from my reading and study.  In the end, it comes down to a very simple choice. What Hell really is aside, there are 2 roads.  One with a good outcome at the end, and one with a not so good outcome.  What will you choose?

    Absolutely, I believe in Hell and I thank God  He gave me the choice not to go there.  We will all be spending eternity somewhere.  He is very straight forward in His Word when He tells us to choose between life and death.  And then He gives us the right answer ... choose life. Why is it His fault if you make the wrong choice?

    Hell is real...no doubt about it. There are two possible eternities; one spent with the Lord or the other total separation from God spent in hell. Revelation 20:13 tells us, "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."  Believers having repented of their sin and trusting In the finished work of Christ on the cross for their salvation, are found written in the Book of Life.

    There are 3 hells translated as a single word hell, but the Greek and Hebrew words are these
    The word Hell is translated in three ways :-

    HEBREW
    Sheol....grave
    Gehenna…..Lake of fire

    GREEK
    Hades……grave
    Geena…..Lake of fire

    Tartaroo .......the bottomless pit reserved for the Demons

    Sheol (Hebrew) and Hades (Greek) means GRAVE or STATE OF THE DEAD - THE PLACE OF THE DEAD.

    Gehenna (Hebrew) and Geena (Greek) means PLACE OF THE UNWANTED, PLACE OF WHERE RUBBISH IS BURNT OR DISCARDED .

    Jesus did not go to Hell the fire (Geena/ Gehenna) but to Hell the grave (Sheol/Hades), the place where all the dead go.

    In Hades the grave, there are no living souls, there is no fire and no spirits or the demons as we have incorrectly been taught.

    I used to because I was told that there was when I was just 5 years old, you know, those times when you were intelectually defenseless that you would believe anything you were told regardless of how silly it is=)
