In my church group, my leader would talk about believing gives you eternal life, and those who dont go to hell. Your comment is so encouraging. I noticed that you removed my e-mail address that I inserted in my comment, so that people could request a copy of the article, if they so desired. Jesus uses the phrase “gnashing of teeth” while explaining the Parable of the Weeds to his disciples: “The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. And many of the Corinthians hearing Paul believed and were baptized” so they believe first… They are not believers after water baptism but after they believe, so your examples have nothing to do with water completing a person’s salvation or that they must be baptized in order to be saved, so your argument falls flat. It is like they must have ripped out Romans 12 and 1 Cor 13 out of their Bible. The thief on the cross was in Paradise that same day with Jesus and never got baptized. Hi Jake W. If we tell lies, that’s a big problem. I believe in God and Jesus, but I wouldn’t call myself a christian as I believe in some different aspects of it. I can only say that I will pray for you to gain understanding through the Holy Spirit in the errors you are teaching and that are clearly unbiblical and I must also say that pagan’s never taught the idea of an eternal hell fire that I have ever known about. I am really Blessed with your article, the explanation to the subject on the scripture is well and it really uplifting my spiritual life I will always read them and May The Lord Richly Bless you as you use this network for his service In Christianity, followers of Jesus Christ believe he is the incarnation of the all-knowing God (Matthew 1:23) and the “Word [of God] made flesh,” (John 1:14). John 3:18b is clear that those who do not believe in Jesus Christ suffer eternal punishment, “whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” Anyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ, anyone who does not repent of their sin, and anyone who does not ask for forgiveness, is doomed to eternal separation from God and His holy angels.eval(ez_write_tag([[336,280],'whatchristianswanttoknow_com-large-leaderboard-2','ezslot_4',119,'0','0'])); Every human who has ever lived, anyone that is alive today, and anybody who will yet live in the future who does not or did not believe in Jesus Christ are destined for hell fire. God would be just to send us all to hell, don’t you think? 1:7-9) we are not working our way to salvation but simply meeting the conditions set by Jesus himself. But the problem is the doesn’t give us an exact answer of what hell will be like. From the depths of a Nazi death camp, Corrie ten Boom wrote these words: “No matter how deep our darkness, He is deeper still.” Every tear we shed becomes his tear. This is God’s mercy (we don’t get what we ALL deserve) and His grace (we receive what we don’t deserve – redemption, hope & joy in God’s promises and eternal life with Him in Heaven. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life’” (John 4:13-14). “With the Lord” – a key phrase describes where church age believers are after death (Philippians 1:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 2 Corinthians 5:8) The Bible never says that you have to be baptized to go to heaven. According to the Cambridge commentary, “this verse is the basis of the later Jewish conception of Gehenna as the place of everlasting punishment.” Gehenna is the Greek word translated from the Hebrew, “Valley of Hinnom,” (Strong’s 1067) which is the where previous inhabitants of the land offered child sacrifices to the god, Molek (Leviticus 18:21). They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Hell is made up of chambers. According to Matthew 10:28, God can destroy a soul in hell. To believe in Him means to rely on, fully trust in, lean upon, and rest in Him. He is new in his faith. i am filipino and a sunday school teacher in our homechurch thanks its learn me a lot about hell in your article God bless you jack. The reality of hell, like heaven, is hotly debated in large part because no human has visited and returned with first-hand knowledge of the place.
