How about quoting and addressing my WHOLE post instead of cherry picking to suit your twisted argument?

Easy !!!!

Orthodox Christianity believe that Jesus has the keys to death and hell, so rather than believing this to mean that Jesus Himself went into hades with those keys to set all free from death and the fear of it , He uses those same keys to open and shut this hoax of a place called Eternal torment to throw sinners into it , so Jesus obviously opened the gates of hell for him to enter in and let him out .
You really couldn't make it up .
Seriously, this ET stuff is the best fiction ever....it has people actually believing it!!!

Nope, you just can't handle the truth. Nothing hateful about the truth.

Now go back and address the whole post or else.

JESUS CHRIST is not a liar. And Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:41 that the cursed ones will enter the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. If you don't believe Jesus own words, what can I say.

And Revelation 20:10 states. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night (FOR EVER AND EVER).

What part of (ETERNAL FIRE, AND FOR EVER AND EVER DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?)

Quote from OP's link: "The Church teaches that God's "desire" to save all (I Tim. 2:4) is but a weak and unattainable wish"

Sorry, but I have NEVER been to a chuch which teaches that God is weak and anattainable. But then again, you will hear those words only out of the mouths of atheirsts and others who are out to discredit the word of God. When you see comments like that, the warning lights should go off and the article whould be treated like anti-christian garbage that it clearly is.
Well, sending Jesus to earth to save mankind (many millennia after dawning of mankind, during which many where suckered into hell with no chance), and giving responsibility to spread the word to fallible humans who probably distorted bunch of things first chance they got sounds like half-hearted attempt to me.

I believe all who reject God will be found in Hell. And I believe all who love God will be with Him in heaven. God knows a true heart. And I believe Christ death on the cross covered the sins of all who love God from this generation, to all past generations.

It's believed so easily because of our guilt complex, and to hammer the lie of it home to us we are threatened with eternal torment by the perversion of the gospel of orthodox christianity that is blinded to the grace of God and the good news to all men.

The gospel of orthodox christianity is not good news it's bad news , it's a message of fear and threats , believe or else.

The skeleton form of a woman with a dirty-grey mist inside was talking to Jesus. In shock, I listened to her. Decayed flesh hung by shreds from her bones, and, as it burned, it fell off into the bottom of the pit. Where her eyes had once been were now only empty sockets. She had no hair.
The fire started at her feet in small flames and grew as it climbed up and over her body. The woman seemed to be constantly burning, even when the flames were only embers. From deep down inside her came cries and groans of despair, 'Lord, Lord, I want out of here!'"
Poor gal. Must suck to be her. I wonder how she knew JC was near without the eyeballs? She probably 'sensed' him I guess.

I posted before about what I found out about NDE's. Mary Baxter's NDE contradicts them all. She is lying and attempting to make money off of the gullible. She'll pay though.

I get so ticked when I read this crap, I'd like to smack her along side her head.

Thats nothing!!

The SDA's believe jesus entered the throne of GOD on 22nd Oct 1844 [4.30pm? ] Their jesus has a BELL and pomegaranate on his preistly garment and is currently a cleaner in the heavenly SANCTUARY. They also believe the ANGELS need to produce A GOLD CARD each time they enter or exit HEAVEN!!
If i reject this belief/doctrine, my prayers are intercepted by SATAN and never reach my GOD. WIERDOS!!

Some SDA dont believe EGW and her doctrine but they keep quite not to rock the boat and be rediculed in front of members.
