Question For those who believe in hell...

Can you give your description of what it is?

Please no preaching or big long posts or "counter
UR agruments, or how or why someone would end up there etc. etc."... just your thoughts on what exactly is this place called hell that you believe in. What is this "eternal torment" consisting of?

And also PLEASE NO debating or counter arguments, etc.

Just a thread for those who DO believe in hell to give their thoughts on what exactly it is.

There is no hidden agenda here... just want a thread to refer back to so I can try to understand some of the folks here a little better when discussing with them.

Again... please you guys, no debating. Please just keep this simple and let people express their views and let it be. If you want to debate their views please start another thread if you will.

Thanks guys...

Hell is a temporary place where the devil, demon, fallen angles, and lost people from the Lord God go after they pass away...... Other names are called the abyss or bottomless pit were a multitude of dark spirits are in chains there...... When an believer prays an excorsist prayer and binds up dark spirits and caste them down, the angel of the blood of Jesus Christ binds the dark spirits hands and legs and transport these spirit to the gates of the abyss and caste them down to this pit.....When people sin or curse or build sin in the earth demons or devils are released to the earth. eg. In the 1960s sin was built up and many changes away from the Lord God came it was a time of open sex, drugs, , protesting and rebelling, burn the bra, etc... This gate of the abyss is a Mammoth Giant Rock roofed building ,; like the building in the old cartoon the Flintstone homes of Fred Flintstone ;; from a visions the Lord God gave me last year;;;;;;; This pit will be locked up after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the devil can not get out for a very long time. ;; Revelation 20 :1-2 It is not known were the the spirits of Animals are, but the Lord God has said that he has a plan for these, they Lord plan is always the good plan who gives good gifts...... The Lord God is a Rightous God and he does not have any purpose for lost people who have passed, so these people had better get in the program or parish

Hell is being married to a nagging, unthankful, abusive wife.

Yep, it is my personally believe, we have no other choice, except we stop to commit sin and begin to follow the Bible teaching.

I believe the earth is hell, not so bad from a loving God.
We experience this life to perfect us.
Have you ever wondered why some live 80 or more years and others die at a young age?
I believe those that live long lives is taking longer to become perfected.
If this being the case we will will die and get out of hell, not many want to leave.

when I was afraid everlasting damnation might exist, I thought it might so that the ghosts of men will find no peace but wander around restless everlastingly, or that man will be imprisoned in their own mind to all eternity, as if they were buried alone alive and immortal - able to think but not able to move any part of the body.

later when I almost become Muslim and almost accepted the idea that there might be a fiery everlasting hell, dschahannam, a name also derived from the valley of Hinnom, Gehenna. I believed the mind of the damned would be destroyed for they would soon get insane and the original personality perish so that god would merely torment dead souls to eternity, the damned though being conscious would be without real personality and de facto annihilated yet in torment, I know a disgusting view.

Now where I believe in the bible, I consider hell to be merely the grave, sheol the realm of the dead souls where sinner and saint go alike and rest until the ressurection.

I do indeed believe in a great and fearful day of vengeance, at least for violent criminals, I think such judgment consists of shame and remorse, they will realize the evil they have done and this will cause great mental torment so that they repent and may be reconciled with God and the men they harmed.
