Does The Hellfire Punishment Make Sense? by VillagePeople11: 10:08am On Nov 15
There are different punishment for crimes committed, for instance fine, probation, 6months, 1 year, 10 years in jail etc.

Humans with their treacherous heart understands this and frown at any punishment that is too much for the crime committed i.e you shouldn't behead a person as punishment for slapping another person(assault). You don't kill your wife or child for disrespecting you.

Now take a second look at the hellfire punishment, the human lifespan is 80 years, and you have people dying at 15, 30, 50 45 etc. Let take a collection of 20 of these humans and call them sinners meant for hellfire.

Now you throw them into fire, i mean burning flames, and you do not even show them the mercy of dying, you continuously burn them for 1 hour, 10 hours, 24 hours, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 1 year, 10years, the number of years equivalent to how long they lived, still burning, 100 years still burning, 200 years, 500 years, 2 million years, 10 million year.... Let me stop there.

Regardless of everything you have been thought, does the punishment of hellfire make any sense?

Hell itself will be destroyed in the lake of fire.

Heaven and hell are christian creations..just like their Jesu's too...man is a made up of spirit of God + dust from the earth , at "death" man returns to default..that is the spirit returns to God who gave it and the body back to earth from where it was taken....so when God said "let us create MAN in our own image after our likeness"...he was talking to the earth or mother nature..she provided the dust for the body, sticks for the bones,..( ie Father Enki and Mother Ninmah).
For catholics, Mary is not our mother, she is not mother nature., she is inanna that rose herself to the pantheon by stealing the Mesfrom Enki.

The lake of fire is the end of all things ungodly. The kind of destruction there is the continued burning of the devil and every things that has the devil seed, ideas, thoughts abd wickedness.

Bible says the smoke goes up forever and ever... It's a continued burning in the lake of fire.

Hell itself will burn in the lake of fire....

GOD says... “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8-9

Yet we know that GOD is the perfect Judge, and merciful.

GOD says "For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!” - Ezekiel 18:32

Yet we know that if GOD does not mercifully justify and forgive by grace, He must render fair judgment. "Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father As well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die." - Ezekiel 18:4

I believe that the perception of eternal punishment in hell is not to be understood in literal time. Yes, there is a lake of fire (Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:10, Revelation 20:14-15) - but fire destroys, and once destroyed the thing destroyed is no more.

Know this:
"The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works." - Psalm 145:8-9

"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart— These, O God, You will not despise." - Psalm 51:17

"For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” - Hebrews 3:14-16

It might surprise you that there's nothing like Hellfire in the Bible.Its just man-made doctrine to instil fears in people's heart.

The Hebrew word 'Sheol' and Greek word 'Hades' that was translated to Hell in some Bible version means 'Grave'

Hell is a common grave of mankind and not a fiery place of torment.
Re: Does The Hellfire Punishment Make Sense? by Dollywood(m): 8:35pm On Nov 21
Hell fire is an uncertainty established to keep Christians clenched in their religion. As we know religion is trash and won't make any relevance in anybody's life. Their Pastors keep cashing out every Sunday preaching fear and mythical deliverance that won't benefit their lives in the next 10years.

What is your True Judgement going to be, on camera with sound microphones, your friend sleeps with your wife, your child complains about it and your friend kills him, your friend goes ahead to use your house as if he owns it, he also rapes your daughter, withdraws your monies in the bank, you inform him that you have the video and records of all his atrocities, yet he Insults you and calls you "a week stupid man, you can't do nothing". Then he goes ahead to begin to sell your properties and squander it on prostitutes while he has turned your wife and children to slaves, whipping and killing them at pleasure, let me stop here.

All these going on for say 80 years, if you had great power, what punishment do you think is just to be meted on this man who has done these things to you personally?

A gruesome death maybe...but figure this same person burning for 10 million years together with petty theives, drunkards, gigolos, stubborn children etc for the same amount of time.... Don't pick any extreme case to justify a general punishment that does not regard the severity of the crime/Sin committed

Oh, no you are not been real! A gruesome death is for just looking at the wife. We have all experienced that when a certain husband thinks his wife is melting for you.

So, your judgement is still for charge 1, hour 1, at 10 minutes past a certain o'clock.

Add charge 2 which came at 55 minutes past that certain hour of hour 1, before it aggravated in the hours 2 and 3!

Imagine, what the Judgment will be by the time 12 hours have gone by on Only That 1 Charge, Excluding All the other charges you shall rack up along the way, by their own hourly Account. shocked

I can't make any sense out of your reply...you sound like confusion.... Is hellfire a proportionate punishment for varying level of sin committed by different people? That is the question.... What is it with killing somebody that looks at your wife.... Laws of different lands have different level of punishment for different crimes ranging from community service to death sentence. What hellfire does is throw all of them into a burning fire for eternity.... My question is does that make any sense to you?
