So let me get this straight. Our God of LOVE is going to torture the lost with fire for the ceaseless ages to come? And all for a SHORT life of sin, in a body that is PRONE to sin because of the fall of Adam and Eve? Does this sound like love? Not one bit. But wait, maybe the Bible teaches this? ... No it doesn't!
John 3:16 ...'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.'
The most well known Bible verse in the whole world. And yet so few people actually KNOWS what it is saying! There are only TWO options for us. One is to follow Christ Jesus and GAIN eternal life. The other is to not follow Christ Jesus and PERISH. We all know what perish means right? To be COMPLETELY destroyed ... nothing left! And when you learn the truth that we don't have an immortal soul, then this really makes complete sense.
Now don't get me wrong. The lost WILL be judged and punished with "hell fire", which Revelation chapters 19 and 20 describes as the "lake of fire". But that fire will "burn them up" (Malachi 4:1) and they will die the "second DEATH" (Revelation 21:8). And this agrees with what God foretold long ago, when He said ... "the soul that sinneth, it SHALL DIE." (Ezekiel 18:20).
