    Do folks who die "in their sins" really go to 'hell' for all eternity, or just for a period of time?

    If so, what exactly IS Hell?

    Do you think it's eternal torment or just eternal separation from God?

    I think Revelation's pretty clear when it says, "The smoke of their torment shall rise up forever and ever."

    Those who worship the beast (Revelation 14) and those whose names are not found in the Book of Life (Revelation 20).

    I think it's clear, not just from Revelation but from the Gospels, that those who die without salvation from Jesus can expect to be sentenced to hell, which is a place in which souls are punished through fire.

    Why? What is the logic behind that particular idea?

    Because a day is coming soon when you will be asked to surrender your allegiance to satan. He will seem like a great guy. He will be a world leader. He will unify the world after a coming war, and after America has been devastated by tsunamis generated by asteroids. You will be asked to swear allegiance to his new world religion, and to accept an chip into your body, that will be your account number in the global commerce system, which he will control. If you resist you must have a plan to survive, a connection to an underground community, to help you survive.

    You choose your fate at this point. If you accept the chip, you are condemned to hell. The other way leads to god.

    Yep, I'm looking forward to sitting around with all the guys in Heaven like this:

    (several guys)

    "So, what'd you die from?"
    "Dude, I so blew up my truck on this sweet jump! How about you?"
    "Oh, got killed by a bear on a hunting trip. You?"
    "Cancer. Quite painful, but you get a lot of attention and plenty of time to say goodbye. How about you?"
    "I got jumped by some guy in an alley. I cut on him a bit, but then he pulled a gun. I think he just wanted my wallet. How 'bout you, kid?" (points at me)
    "DUDE! I died fighting in the FRICKIN' APOCALYPSE! I took down, like, 20 of them before they finally got to me."
    (everyone else)"Whoaaaaaaaa!!!"
