RE: Hell In The Old Testament
Well child eye, if you, as you say above, "know" these things about the fire (most of which made no sense to me), then it is settled for you. It's your opinion, but this board is, well, an atheist board, so the prevailing thought here will, with a few exceptions, differ.

To me it is imagery meaning all that is prideful and lifts itself up against God which is Love, will be brought down, and God keeps this knowledge available forever as spiritual renewal in the eternal kingdom. For all we know, this lake of fire may be a time loop where all the events that happened in time are relived over and over again in some manner. It says once a month they will go out and look upon it for the sake of remembering what to loathe. There are many referances to this in the Old Testament but this is the best one.


But they're just dead bodies, not experiencing anything. Just Dead.Unconscious.Unfeeling.Corpses.
It is spiritual language. I believe it is a snapshot in time that is meant to be taken as a culmination of the purpose of a flesh existence that is being displayed here.

Your words graciously dance around anything that could be taken offensively. Thank you. Of course you are correct. Your opinion or mine does not really matter. But scripture reiterates this many many times which is why I say I know.

But you admit there is no indication of an eternal torment in hell?

Warning arguing with childeye is like arguing with a robot.

Not matter what you say he'll keep repeating that which is programmed to say. He never stops, and his tactic is to repeat his circular logic to the point his opponent leaves the argument due of exhaustion.

P.s. God is love, solves everything. You'll see.

I'm not dancing around anything. I'm just unsure why, if you know these things, you feel the need to keep hammering these things to an atheist board. Are you trying to convert us? Good luck, not gonna happen. Also, most of us do not take scripture as authority, so your special pleading fails. Again.
