I'm only gonna post one time here because the OP is not being serious.

Those of you who are interested in the Biblical perspective on hell, here it goes.

Hell is a word used in the english bible and is translated through 4 different words in the bible. None of which speak of everlasting torment in fire.

Word #1 is the only word used in the Old Testament that translates to "hell". It is the Hebrew word "sheol" which properly translates as "death" or "grave." End of story.

Word #2 is the greek version of "sheol" which is "hades" also meaning "death" or "grave." It is one of three translations found in the New Testament.

Word #3 is the greek word "gehenna" which properly translates to english as "Valley of Hinnom" which is a literal place south of Jerusalem which was used, in Jesus' time, as a dump site. Trash, animal carcasses, and criminal corpses were thrown on this trash pile and burned day and night. Jesus used "gehenna" to give the Jews a visual of what the Lake of fire would be like. It's full of DEAD bodies. Revelation calls the Lake of Fire the "Second Death" so no suffering (at least not for an eternity).

Word #4 is the greek word "tartaroo" or "Tartarus" which translates properly to english as "abbys" or "pit" or "place of confinement" and Peter used this word only once to describe the impisonment of Satan and the fallen angels durring the 1000 year reign of peace on earth through the leadership of Christ. Satan is bound for 1000 years before being released and later cast into the lake of fire.

Nowhere in the bible does it say we will suffer eternity in hell. Those thrown into the lake of fire will burn up and die a second time.

The truth about hell is hell is our human existence here on Earth. I imagine the same is true of any physical existence anywhere.


Probably, the worst places here... I've been through places and I could tell that some places here is heaven - Not to be confused with sex and the beauty of the place, but the hearts of the people...

Come to think of it, if hellish eternal inferno exists for sinners, then even the worst place here on the Earth's surface must be heaven..

If you choose to believe that then on your merry way... first though have a visit to some torture camps, check out the face of a child being tortured, have a quick look at the starving child and the agony of a helpless parent. dont forget to stop into the drug den of an addict going through withdrawals and the cries of her unborn child...

Its an insult to the love of all humanity when someone of your nature makes light of such a serious predicament felt and experienced by millions of people in this very day. At this point in time 350,000 children in Australian have been taken from their parents, houndreds of thousands more are being abused and tortured by people all around the world some being sold into sexual slavery, and you have the audacity to make light of Hell, some are living it right now...try joining them, with your flippant attitude, go visit some of the children in hospital after they were abused...check out their stiches, and then laugh with them about your hell.
