It is the truth man. The lambs are separated from the rams.
You are wrong in thinking there is no purgatory and no hell.
"...we hope on a living God, Who is a Saviour of ALL MEN, especially of faithful." [Ferrar Fenton Version]
or consider Revelation 20:14, which states that Death and the Grave are to be thrown into the Lake of Fire. Have you ever considered that after Death
has been burned up in the LoF, no one [NO ONE!] can thereafter be dead, in Hell or out of it.
BTW, the sheep are separated from the GOATS, not the lambs from the rams, but even so, the fate of the goats in Hell is only a supposition on the part
of those who delight at the thought of their personal enemies being tortured for eternity. Just so you know, I know when and from where the concept
of Hell entered Christianity. It is a Pagan concept, but you may not know early church history.
edit on 24-5-2013 by Lazarus Short because:
The concept of hell is a place outside of the secure bounds of the city of God where one can find love.
Anyone who is not on the path to righteousness is in hell. The only path that one can walk and truly know where he is going is the path of love.
Those who choose to walk the path of love are rewarded with love in this lifetime.
Those who do not walk the past of love are rewarded with whatever they pursue. Greed, Lust, Addiction to sin. They are outside of the city, because
to be inside is to be in love.
Love is spirit and the Spirit of Love dwells within each man who pursues love. The man who pursues love has found God, because God is spirit and God
The one who does not pursue love, walks in the darkness, because love is light. The one who walks in the darkness does not live in love, therefore he
lives apart from the Spirit of Love (he lives in darkness/hell).
Lazurus Shorts is correct. The bible says in the end all things that cause sin will be thrown in the lake of fire.
The flesh is at war with the spirit. Your spirit naturally wants to be at one with the Spirit of Love, and you will only find peace when you let go
of the physical pleasures of life to more perfectly pursue love.
But the flesh, Satan, and all things that cause us to stumble will be destroyed in the lake of fire. We are in the lake; do you feel the heat of all
that causes sin? War, Greed, Hate, Religious intolerance that leads to judgment? These are the fires of hell. Sin is fire, hell is spirutal
seperation from God. These thing occur here, we are in the lake.
When we die physically do we not spiritually leave all the things that cause us to stubble behind in the lake of fire, earth? When we die physically
we are removed from this existence and our spirits enter into heaven. The promise from Christ is the ability to taste a bit of death and heaven here
on earth, prior to the actual physical death of the body.
By letting go of physical desire and by loving others as Christ commanded we will become filled with the Spirit of Love, the Holy Spirit. When the
Spirit of Love makes a permanent home within a man that man can experience a small piece of heaven here on earth.
If everyone would love one another than we could make Chrsits prayer to the father come true.
The Lord's Prayer.
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kigdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Love is the will of the father, and Jesus himself prayed and told us to pray that
love be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Should we not all say Amen to the lord's prayer? Then maybe we could overcome Satan/Sin here on earth.
