There is no THREAT of eternal damnation in the Bible. o

It is a manufacturing tale made by certain men to draw followers after themselves.


Yes - Hell is promoted to keep the pews and offering plates full.

It is very strange my seats in my church assembly are filled not because of fear of going to hell, but because of the Love of God shed abroad in the members hearts by the Holy Ghost. they are there to learn the word of God and how to live a Christian followers of Christs.

CORRECT!

But there is eternal damnation, eternal judgement and eternal fire in context with judgement, Also there is the synonym of eternal which is everlasting which is equal to eternal. Everlasting punishment, Everlasting fire and everlasting destruction in connection with that punishment.

Oh and let's not forget the synonym FOR EVER just a few of them you can find in Jude 1:13, Rev 14:11; 19:3; 20:10

Jesus Christ and his direct remaining 11 apostles were the only ones who used eternal, everlasting and forever in context of punishment, fire, destruction and damnation.

Paul never used the term ETERNAL Damnation, Judgement, punishment or Fire, and he used Everlasting Damnation only once. He also never used the term "for ever" in context with any judgment, fire, damnation or punishment.

you will have to understand God's grace as seen in his dealing with Noah to know why he deals with Christians through that grace as well. Hint: God find's grace in those who believe on the ransom of his son for the many.
