OI VEY Verna.

I'm not sure you are getting your point across here. You'll only suffer torture a little while, as opposed to forever?!?



Take a breath, relax, be well. Think about being made into God's image.

Well actually your OP is not the message of the bible at all.

The message is this: We are all being made into God's image, which is love. God is doing this in His own time and order.

As part of this process, we are being formed like clay, and sometimes clay has to go into the oven. We will go through trials by fire (NOT HELL). These trials by fire are necessary for development of our character, so that ultimately we will be made good and will be LOVE just like our father in heaven.

The good news is that we won't be in these carnal sinning dying fleshly bodies forever, and that God has a plan for us to overcome sin, and things will get better.

The good news is not about avoiding eternal terror (or even non-eternal terror). Its about knowing that God will work things out for the good of everyone.

Peace.

Verna you crack me up sometimes. You know our God is a loving and faithful God, and we must understand that God will judge us. Some people have a hard time with thinking about a loving God, that will then judge us. But God is holy and will judge us as such.

I see on this forum that people have a hard time thinking that God will judge or punish someone. But God is a just God.

If we read our bible then we know that there is nothing that goes on in the world without God's permission.

There are flood waters that are killing people and we must wonder, Is these flood waters devine, or is God allowing evil to strick. There is only two answers. These types of things that are going on in the world can be demonic, but God still has to allow it. SAtan or demons can't touch us without God's permission.

Now a person who refuses to understand the Character of God, will not want to even look at the things that are going on in the world and even realize that God has to allow even demons and satan access to the things that are going on.

I love my God and know that He is a loving and mercyful God, but I do realize that He will judge and by reading the bible, He even allows satan and demons access to destroy things of this world.

Even with the things that are going on God is still God. People who refuse to understand that God is a just God, need to evaluate and read the bible, and study it.

God can love, get angry, be grieved, show sorrow, be mercyful, and many more, because God has emotions. But people who are deceived only want to looked at God being loving and don't want to even take the bible for what it says about Him showing other emotions.

But the bible is clear those who are not followers of Christ will be separated from Him. If someone does not want to accept it then that is there choice. God has been dealing with me on this issue, if they don't want to accept it, then that is their choice, that is the Holy Spirit's job.

Also people who have a hard time with the Character of God want to throw the OT out and only read the NT. God says that He never changes. He is the same in the OT just as much as He is in the NT.

This thread is exactly that point legoman. Time and time again, a UR'er will argue THAT ETERNAL DAMNATION...AND EVERLASTING FIRE doesn't mean eternal or everlasting...it only means for an "AGE!"...but no one can say for sure how long this "AGE" is for...It's just absolutely rediculous!!!...apart from that, it isn't Scriptural!

Exactly, my party is being with Jesus. I don't want to even look at Hell or be there for a second. But for those who want to be there for a second or an age ( notice I say those who want that which is not biblical), those in heaven will be rejoicing. Now that is a party, to see my Master face to face.
