Dios 9:16,17. So sayeth the Pope, Go into the world and deceive mankind with this jesus tale, so that we may control thier thoughts. Slay all heretics but tell them of the unconditional love of jesus. Africans are the most gullible,

Proverbs 26:4,5. Do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.

@Dios. Prov 14:13. Even in laughter the heart may be in pain. And the end of mirth may be heaviness and grief.

@ Dios. Pooor you. You sound like a very miserable person and I will not join issues with you. Delusional? That's more on your part than on mine cos I made my point very clear. You are already living in a hell of your own making. Sooo Sorry you feel so bad. You've already been mad at a few people on this thread. Phewwww. You'll have to continue sweating it out cos there's more fire coming your way. Ciao.

Brothers and sisters, the only hell preached in the bible is here on earth, but the construction is till going on, soon the builder will conclude the contract. You will be given free accommodation once you're not among people going to heaven.

Your view is delusional and why y'all always bring up fear? Is it because fear is the foundation f your religion?

I think it is. You're scared of going to hell.

@Dios "The bible says, the bible says, the bib>>>>>, >>>>>>>>>   The bible says a bunch of crap that don't make sense. It's a book of fantastic illogical stories written by the equivalent of hollywood screenwriters of the middle ages. "

That's your take and this is my take on the matter. Why are you attacking me. What are you afraid of?

I would still believe in God through my Lord Jesus Christ. I would still do right, I would still aspire to be a better person. I would still believe the bible. I have experienced it. I know the changes it can bring into a persons life. I know joy unspeakable and the peace that passes all understanding in the midst of the adversities of life. I wouldn't trade it for anything else. If there was no afterlife I would still serve the LIVING GOD.

cgift,

Imagination? Am I supposed to imagine anything? Do I have to use my imagination when trying to figure "God" out? If he's God, what's so hard about being real? The fact that I'm of a carnal (. . .critically annalytic) mind should make God easy for me to understand. Or am I silly because I ask too many questions which you (unfortunately) have no real answer to, that you have to use your imagination ?

Everytime I read the bible, it makes lots of sense.

But every time I set it down, it becomes a bunch of bullshit. Does that not mean that the bible (and hell stories) appeal to a certain part of me that loves horror movies? So I am adviced in order for it not to sound like a load of bull- I should bury my face in it all day and all nite? Isn't that utter ignorance? But then what's on the other side of the bargain? Enjoyment? which one-- what type? freedom? from what-- to where?

My dad said God takes pleasure when people choose him, instead of him having to make them. There are more than a billion christians on the planet right now, God must be one jolly fellow; not to count the ones that give their lives to christ every sunday, and take it back for the week. Is the christian God that dumb? It seems he has nothing better to do-- what boredom he must exist in to revel in himself anytime someone gives their lives to him-- I thought he knew that from the beginning of the world, even before he created anything!?

If there is God, there is no choice. If he made you, then he made you do all the things you do. how? What makes you who you are is beyond your control-- you genes and your environment. You did not decide what genes to have, and where you'd be born. For this reason, God has no right (if he's not a kid) to judge a housa man, born muslim to forty prior generations of muslims, that thinks it's right to kill christians. That's how God made him.

Is there an afterlife? I don't think so. But even if there were, there'd be no heaven or hell. And if there's really heaven and hell, then God is not half as smart as Albert Einstein.

Supaguy,

God bless you real good for answering an inquisitive mind.

Of the verses you referred me to, here are the relevant portions:

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Okaaaaaaay, so death can be thrown into this fire. I'm confused o! If the verse had said 'firewood' or 'petrol' I could have understood - but a fire that burns up death? Obviously not an ordinary fire. Perhaps it's not even a literal fire - after all, the Bible is known to use figures of speech. Maybe it refers simply to destruction. God knows.

And the fire even burns Hell itself! Na wa o, so this must be some kind of super-hell! How come nobody ever told me about this? All my life I've always believed there's just heaven and hell - and now I find this out!

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

OK, so people will also be cast into this Super-Hell. But it doesn't say what will happen to them. Will they fry immediately? Or will there be gnashing of teeth and gums, Supaguy? Let's see if the last verse says anything,

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

OK, so basically just expatiating on what was said in verse 15. Now I know that the lake has lots of brimstone (or sulphur). I didn't know that sulphur was able to burn up death, sha. But there's no mention of gnashing of teeth here. I guess I need to search further - - -

Bingo! 'Gnashing of teeth' found in Matthew 13:

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But is this the same Super-Hell that we saw before? What if it's the regular hell? Or perhaps it's even another hell that we don't know about - after all, it's described here as a 'furnace of fire' which after all is very different from a 'lake of fire'. Perhaps there's more to this 'Hell' business than than people are letting on. I guess I should ask God, but I'm sure I'll be told that everything I need to know is in one Holy Scripture or another. Should I ask the Devil? After all, he's supposed to be masterminding operations in Hell. I don't know- - - it's all verrry confusing.

PS I don't know what it is about Matthew, but he seems quite big on the whole 'wailing and gnashing of teeth' thing. Is this a Jewish cultural thing? Do any of you guys know people who regularly gnash their teeth when in suffering? Me, I prefer a good long scream.

@ Ka,

if u have access to a Bible, read Revelation 20:10-15, 21: 8

There sure is life after death.

Ka, realy we al dnt need details as to how the lake of fire is gonna burn or if there's a possibility of gnashing of gums. It is stated in the bible so.

What we shd be concerned bout is how to make heaven in the end. Accept christ as ur lord n saviour, and ur name'll b written in the book of life. Rev. 20:11-15.

*More responses for ka pls*

Tell me more about this Lake of Fire. Does it burn you up completely? If so, that means you die again, right? Then do you go to Hell - Level 2 - like you do in computer games? And if you do, is the fire there even hotter? Or does it just inflict the pain of burning without actually burning you? When you say Lake of Fire - does it mean that there is petrol in the lake that is aflame? Or is the entire lake (from top to bottom) filled with fire? If so, what burns to produce the fire?

And this gnashing of teeth. Is it compulsory? I mean, what if I'm old by then and all my teeth have fallen out - is gnashing of gums acceptable? Why the emphasis of teeth gnashing - is there some deeper symbolism at work here? Perhaps the fire isn't that hot - maybe it's a lukewarm Jacuzzi of Fire - is that why it will only produce gnashing of teeth rather than scratching out of eyes in extreme pain?

I'd appreciate an honest reply. Remember, there is the possibility that I might be convinced and scared into renouncing my sinful ways and embracing the Way of the Lord!

of course there is life after death. If u know ur Bible well, u will know that there is everlasting life for those who accept Christ, and are found worthy when He comes. For those who reject Him, there is going to be eternal doom in the Lake of fire, where there's going to be gnashing of teeth! U don't want to imagine being there.

What kind of a question is that?Even your bibles tells you of an afterlife in hell or heaven.So dont you believe in the bible anymore by the way why do good and confess your sins if you would end up no where after you pass on.You are confused.

What if the God you choose is not the correct one? if you choose jesus and you meet Allah you will burn in hell. If you choose Allah and you meet jehovah the same thing. And what if God turns out to be someone who loves evildoers and atheists but hates religious people and sends them to hell? What if he's a tyrant?

life or no life after death,i believe it is better to live your life as if there is God and die to find out there isn't than live your life as it there isn't and die to know there is.Uhm, that's gonna be a bit disheartening. I bet you don't want to say HAD I KNOWN!!!
