Hell (Hades, Sheol) not literal place of fiery torment?
Read my wall of Text please...lol hell hades and sheol or all the same. (The word "hades" (underworld) was substituted for "sheol" when the Hebrew scriptures were translated into Greek) hell is also a sub. A. Hell (Hades, Sheol) not literal place of fiery torment ____________________________________________ 1# a suffering Job prayed to go there… (Job 14:13) O that in She′ol you would conceal me, That you would keep me secret until your anger turns back, That you would set a time limit for me and remember me! 2# hell is a place of inactivity… (Psalm 6:5) For in death there is no mention of you; In She′ol who will laud you? (Ecclesiastes 9:10) All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in She′ol, the place to which you are going. (Isaiah 38:18-19) For it is not She′ol that can laud you; death itself cannot praise you. Those going down into the pit cannot look hopefully to your trueness. 19 The living, the living, he is the one that can laud you, Just as I can this day. The father himself can give knowledge to his own sons concerning your trueness. 3# Jesus was raised from grave, Hell… (Acts 2:27) Because you will not leave my soul in Ha′des, neither will you allow your loyal one to see corruption. (Acts 2:31-32) he saw beforehand and spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he forsaken in Ha′des nor did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God resurrected, of which fact we are all witnesses. (why would Jesus a perfect being who never sinned be in hades?) 4# Hell will deliver up the dead, and then be destroyed. (Revelation 20:13-15) And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Ha′des gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and Ha′des were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. The above scripture goes hand and hand with (Revelations 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Hell is supposedly infinite fiery torment or a place of pain so even if it does exist (which it doesn’t) it will be destroyed. B. Fire is a symbol of annihilation ____________________________ 1# Satan’s fiery torment is everlasting death… (Revelation 20:10) And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulphur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet [already were]; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Revelation 20:14-15) And death and Ha′des were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. In this scripture hell itself has been thrown into the lake of fire and destroyed so Based on this info it’s clear that Hell = death or the “common grave of mankind” and the lake of fire symbolizes the complete annihilation of these things. 2# The bible says the dead are conscious of nothing… (Ecclesiastes 9:5) For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. (Ecclesiastes 9:10) All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in She′ol, the place to which you are going. (Psalm 146:3-4) Do not put YOUR trust in nobles, Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs. 4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish. A loving god would not let us burn in hell forever if half of the Christian on this earth picked there bible up they would know that.

This is not a new idea. My mentor actually believes everyone goes to heaven. But believes that because of their life on earth, being in heaven will be painful for them knowing that everyone knows how they lived their lives. (Living hell from within... More
