Lies About Hell?

Here are some excerpts from an article over at Christarchy on Hell.

Wait, first, here is the link to the entire article: Lies about Hell and the Real Purpose of the Lake of Fire.

And here are some of the excerpts:

"The wages of sin is death not eternal life in hell. If you die, you don't burn forever. If you burn forever, you don't die......
..........The concept of torment was not associated.....by any of the Old Testament prophets.......
........As the Popes of Roman Catholic Church began their 'holy apostolic succession' they quickly realized that fear and ignorance worked much better than love. The everlasting torments of Hell thus made its appearance in conjunction with the opposite alluring rewards of Heaven. This brought many people and much money into the Church.....
..............God is not going to and never intended to burn anyone, in the Lake of Fire for all eternity....[when] Jesus comes it will be to judge the world in Righteousness. Those that will be cast in the lake of fire will have their carnal sinful natures burned away. In the consuming purifying presence of God they will learn righteousness..........."


And here is are some quotes the author cites from the Bible:

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die." Hebrews 9:27
"If any man's work shall be burned he shall suffer loss but he himself shall be saved yet so as by Fire." 1 Corinthians 3:15


So, before you get all excited, I don't necessarily agree with everything this guys says but he does make quite a compelling argument and it is something to think about.

But don't take my word for it. Read the article yourself and form your own opinion.

  1. If one lies about going to hell does that mean one is going to Hell?

  2. Hmmm...I'm not sure.

    If you are a follower of Jesus and tell people that you are not going to Hell, then I would say that is truth and you are not going.

    Then again, if you are NOT a follower and tell people you are not going to Hell then you are screwed anyway withouth lying about it.

    LOL.
