Can you prove that your not going to burn in hell fire?
Hell fire is the creation of Dante and was taken from the Greek idea of Hades
It does not exist in the Judaic belief, this great place of damnations that Christians love to talk about., Therefore, it exists only as much as Greco-Romans myths exist. That is--not at all.
If God does exist, I think he would take a non believer who lived their life as a good person, over a christian who used his name to judge people.
my will be deceived about trying to sneak in on good works.
Isn't it a cheaper option?
I'd like to be creamated, and my ashes scattered over a nude beach.
If the mythical tyrant " Gawd" is so "great" why did 1/3 of the "angels" in "heaven" side with the other guy ?
OOOOOOOOOOO He Him It
You're somewhat correct. The concept of eternal "Hell" is a pagan concept. The term "Hell" is actually a pagan term used as the translation for several different places mentioned in scriptures. Sheol (death), Tarturoo ("the pit" or abyss/dimension of angels), and Gehenna or the "Lake of Fire". The Hebrew scriptures do not teach life after death like most pagan religions at the time taught. According to the scriptures when your dead, you're dead, until the final resurrection day. Sheol, one of the terms translated as "hell" in the Bible is really a "state" not a "place", it is a "state" of the dead. All of the dead are currently in the "state" of Sheol or death. Upon the resurrection they will be brought back to life, judged and according to the scripture, the wicked will be thrown into a lake of fire, which is not an eternal Hell, like the Pagans would teach, it's a pit of annihilation in which the souls of the wicked are burned up and they and the Lake of Fire cease to exist. There is no one place in existence called "Hell" right now.
Why do millions of people follow fake preachers like Benny Hinn and John Hagee?
Charisma is a bitch.
Ha'Shatan (Satan) is a very charismatic figure. He knows how to deceive and he's still deceiving, prove is the fact that you actually believed that that argument was good enough to disprove the authority and sovereignty of the Most High.
close except the torment never stops. ("And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.)
Lost, and reaching for hope, they fail to believe Christ plan of salvation is so simple.
