BTW.. what do you care when you believe Revelation is fulfilled already? That means the second death already took place and won't hurt anyone anymore anyway.
For the saints yes...that is what the scripture says..

You do not.

Now address the OP, or stay out of the conversation. I am tired of you going off topic.
You have wasted space on this thread with your ramblings.

It's called the lake of fire, hell, lake of fire and brimstone, burning flame and the tormenting flame. The dead, goats, wicked, sinners, etc are destined after they die.

What book are you looking at....? Obviously not the Bible.

I guess you didn't really read or understand then.

What do you think the wicked being tormented in the lake of fire is? JUDGMENT. That is how they are JUDGED (Rev 20:13-15). Judgment causes people to learn righteousness. We know the whole world will learn righteousness through His judgments. And we know Christ will make all righteous. (PS to avoid confusion, understand the lake of fire is not physical - its spiritual, symbolic of the judgment they will go through - God judges by fire - spiritual fire).


And BTW, you plagiarized at least half your post to meerkat2 from this website (What the Bible Says About The Resurrection And Immortality). You need to stop plagiarizing other people's work in your own posts and think for yourself. At least post a link if you are doing a cut and paste WORD for WORD hack job. Its against the TOS otherwise, and its dishonest when you use someone else's words as your own.

You can call things whatever you like, or whatever a translation might read, none of that addresses what I pointed out.

Really, that explains why parables are not intended to be literal.

Sorry,but you took this off course by proclaiming that I was not a Christian.Therefore,deal with it.

And not all of Christianity takes the Bible as literal.You simply do not know what you are talking about here.Roman Catholic bishops have denied creationism.I attended for over a year an Eastern Orthodox church that did not make you accept creationism or Noah's Ark.I then started attending an Episcopal church;they do not take much of the things like creationism,Noah's flood,the sun standing still in the sky,etc,as literal.I know this from first hand experience.

So,once again,you simply speak of things that you know nothing about.BTW,those groups make up more of Christianity than all evangelicals combined.
