Is Hell Eternal?

The popular world view is that hell is a fiery place of eternal torment for sinners. This view is certainly taught and promoted within Christianity and in art, film, and literature.

The teaching that a place of fiery eternal torment created by a loving and just God does not make sense. And, the many who accept such a teaching must not think much of the god they claim to worship to paint and visualize him in this manner. Could it be they have pulled God down to their (the human) animalistic unholy level?

It is interesting what is written at Jeremiah 7:31, a scripture those who believe in a eternal fiery hell ignore:

“They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.”

Hell Thrown Into The Lake of Fire Which is The Second Death

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14 KJV)

NOTE: Rather than rehash what hell and the Lake of Fire are, please read this article: What Is Hell? What Is The Lake of Fire?

After reading that article, it will be shown that hell is the grave. It will be shown that death and hell are mentioned together. Makes perfect sense because when anyone dies, they go into a grave.

The article also shows that The Lake of Fire Which Is The Second Death is not a literal place but is a symbol for non-existence or being no more. Thus, anything thrown into it ceases to exist.

That death (can you burn death?) and hell (the grave) are thrown into The Lake of Fire Which Is The Second Death shows that a time will come over the earth where there will be no more death. If people will no longer die, there will be no need for graves.

R. Jerome Harris

No one of importance. A disciple (student) of Christ apart from the established religious systems who reasons, thinks and concludes matters for myself. Something is not right with the state of religion in the world. The real dichotomy is that we live in a world so full of religion, yet is an evil, immoral, and dangerous place to live. A mental and spiritual separation from this world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of is the first step to a "break-through" to freedom and entry into a much larger spiritual world where God and Christ resides and the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God can be accessed.
