  • Yes. I did an in deph study of all the major religions views on the topic. I came across many false interpretations that are currently out there as well. Like the premise that it's just a hole in the ground nonsense. They may honestly believe it but it doesn't wash out when PROPER study is given to the topic. Satan puts believable, but faulty, information out there to deceive. It's like in the Garden of Eden when the Devil manipulated Eve with the idea that God didn't really mean what He said. It's real, it's a place of flames and torments, and it's forever.

      The Devil is not mentioned in the first five books of the Bible attributed to Moses, because he had not been invented yet. Read the Bible carefully and find where the Devil is first mentioned.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "The Devil is not mentioned in the first five books of the Bible attributed to Moses" Actually, the devil is described as the ancient serpent in the book of Genesis. Read the Bible carefully the next time before you add foolish comments.
    • ReiSan
      Jenny, Genesis, Exodus, etc. do not mention the Devil at all. It was a serpent who tempted Eve, and all serpents were punished for what one did, just as all humans are condemned for what Adam and Eve did. You read the Bible carefully before you make foolish comments.
    • ReiSan
      Jenny really made a fool of hers3elf this time. The Devil was not invented until the time of the Persian Captivity, so God is responsible for both good and evil. The invention caused contradictions. Both God and Devil are said to be responsible for David's census. Jenny, read the Bible carefully and find where the Devil-the Satan-Lucifer is first mentioned. The identification of Devil with serpent of Eden was written over 1400 years later. Genesis says nothing about the Devil. Moses did not mention the Devil once. Ha ha ha, Jenny made a total fool of herself. She needs to read the Bible mush more carefully.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "Genesis, Exodus, etc. do not mention the Devil at all." Satan has many titles. The Bible describes him as the ancient serpent who deceived Adam and Eve.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "Jenny really made a fool of hers3elf this time." Think again and read the beginning of Genesis.
    • Brother Rando
      Satan is referred as the great dragon who was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth.
    • Brother Rando
      Allow scripture to interpret scripture. "So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him." (Rev 12:9) Take Care.
    • Sandra Ursula
      ReiSan is correct. The Devil is just a copy of Ahriman the evil deity in Persian Zoroastrianism, so the Devil isn't in the Bible until the Hebrews were ruled by Persia. Revelation was written long after Genesis, Exodus, etc. The apologists are using later additions to the tale. Nobody can find the Devil-the Satan-Lucifer or whatever in the Bible until long after the first books of the Bible were written.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      BR, Satan has many titles which include the great dragon. deceiver, adversary, the roaring lion, etc. But Satan's quest started in the beginning of Creation by deceiving mankind. Revelation 20:2 "And he laid hold on the dragon, [that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan], and bound him a thousand years,"
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Sandra Ursula, it doesn't matter what ReiSan believes. What we are discussing here are the many names of Satan. Quote: "Nobody can find the Devil-the Satan-Lucifer or whatever in the Bible until long after the first books of the Bible were written." Satan's attributes are found early in the Creation of Genesis. There was something that caused Adam and Eve to sin. Which is why my comments are accurate from Genesis to Revelation.
  • 5-4-2017 Hell is a hole is a grave. Check any dictionary. Everybody goes there except we who are alive when Jesus calls us to meet him in the air. There is a lake of fire, but only spirits go there. Everything you think you know about hell came from one stupid book by Dante Alighieri.
  • It's not a real place, that's the truth about it.
  • Is one letter short of Hello. We've all at times been in a hell of our own making. We've had blissful heavenly moments. Life has range and assuredly will build character as you live it fully.
    • ReiSan
      No!
  • Hell is not a burning not a burning place people go if they do bad, it is a false teaching- a lie. The Greek meaning of the word Hell mean the common grave of mankind.Jesus at John 11:11 tell us that dyeing is like going to sleep At Ecclesiastes 9:5,10 it states we are conscious of nothing at all in the grave, Greek Hell - IN Hebrew Sheol. God does not torment people in a fictional hell.The bible say that the wages for sin is death - no more life, however because of the ransom Jesus gave we can be resurrected back to life if God chooses to do so
  • Hell = Hades = She'ol...simply man's grave... (Revelation 20:12, 13) And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. A second chance to be obedient..... So the ' baddies' in this lot have NOT been to any place of further punishment... Their death has FULLY PAID for what they did wrong...and yet they are being given a second chance at being good. Thank about it !
  • The Hebrew and Greek transliterations by the words Sheol/Hades do not teach that hell is a fiery place.
    • ReiSan
      In the Olympian religion of ancient Greece, most people went to the House of Hades after death. A few favorites of the gods went to the Isles of the Blessed or the Elysian Fields. The real pets went to Olympus to live among the gods. People who badly offended the gods were punished in Tartarus. Ixion was tied to a wheel that burns and rolls. Tantalus was in a lake up to his neck that hand fruit hanging from trees within his reach. When he tried to eat or drink, the water and fruit vanished. The Danaides try forever to fill an urn that is full of holes. Sisyphus eternally tries to roll a huge stone up a hill, but he never can go all the way.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Hades is the grave in Greek. Some define hell as a time period a person goes through when they’re reincarnated from one life to another. Others define hell as the habitation of the dead, while others yet say that hell is something that is difficult to experience. But the Bible uses the words Sheol and Hades as the common grave.
    • ReiSan
      Jenny, pay attention. Hades is the god of the underworld where most people go after death. Hades is more than a grave in Greek. He is one of three brothers who rule the universe. Zeus rules the heavens and earth, Poseidon rules the seas and Hades rules the underworld realm of most dead people. In the Odyssey, Odysseus goes to the House of Hades and sees some men he knew at Troy plus Heracles' mortal part.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      I may suggest you pay attention. The Greek Strong's Concordance teaches hell means Hades for the common grave. Hell is not a fiery place as mainstream Christianity teaches.
  • Yes, I do. The truth is that it is imaginary, as are other places of eternal punishment, e.g. Tartarus, Yomi, Niflheim, etc.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "The truth is that it is imaginary," How can the common grave be imaginary?
    • ReiSan
      Jenny, Christians think of Hell as a place of eternal punishment, but you are an SDA, rather than a Christian. You have many ides that disagree with Christian doctrines. You have tunnel vision, i.e. you see only one of many Bible verses and take it out of context. Christians abhor such cultists as you who pervert the Bible.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Quote: "Christians think of Hell as a place of eternal punishment," That's not a biblical teaching. Those type of believers also teach a Gospel of prosperity to put fear in gullible believers. Do a research on the words Sheol and Hades.
    • Sandra Ursula
      Hades was the god of the underworld in Greek myths,. Hades was a god not a place. Hades, Zeus and Poseidon were the 3 sons of Cronus who defeated him and became lords of the universe. Jenny needs to do lots of research.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Sandra Ursula needs to learn to read, cause I agree Hades was the god of the underworld. Therefore, hell is the common grave. It is the underworld of the dead and the personification of the evil it represents.
  • Yes. It's Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
