If someone is imagining things, hearing voices, or has paranoid delusions then maybe so.
I for one do not necessarily dismiss the OPs descriptions, or experiences as not being real.
We do not know for sure what happens post death, or on the other side if you like.
There are all sorts of spiritual realms that are possible.

Obviously they do not come back to tell the tale.

For the OP to describe this experience is just truly awful.

I hate to be the one to point out the obvious but the OP is not dead, he's very much here and alive and well.
And presumably still has all his skin and organs etc otherwise he wouldn't be sitting here typing on his keyboard and umm, telling us the 'tale' of the lake of fire.
In what sense are his tales 'real'?


EDIT:
Actually I've thought about this and there's no need to respond because clearly, the guy needs help, so I'm going to make an effort not to respond to any more of his posts as my posts aren't helping him much either.

But please take the time to think about this yourself.
Not only has this poor guys experience with Christianity seriously messed with him, it's also now messing with you, so I'd stop yourself going any further down that road. Nothing positive can come of it.

There's plenty of positive aspects to Christianlty as far as I can tell - embrace those instead.

Agreed.
The Hell concept has always disturbed me though.
And on the OP, there would be no physical damage if one is thrown into the Lake of Fire with another spiritual body, and then come back with the original earthly one you had beforehand.

The way the bible words it, it sounds to me like, when EVERYONE that has ever lived, is suddenly resurrected, and back on the earth again, they will be in flesh and blood earthly bodies, like they had when they were alive, (I did hear someone once say they thought people would come back in the mid 20s age range), although Im not sure why they thought this.


The problem as I see it with this, there will be both good and bad people back on the earth during this time, bible is not real clear on what these resurrected bodies will do while they are here,so who knows, it may look like 'Night of the living dead'.

People that have been to Heaven say you are given back your body, in it's prime.
Yes it may be like an earthly body as well.
I am sure it is not some Zombie body though, like Return of the Living Dead.

Everything I wrote is true. Billions of people know Hell exists & They know what I am talking about. That is all that matters

I assume you mean the billions that are currently or already there?
Is there anything we can do to get them out though?

What about the people who return, but were NOT in heaven though? Have to remember, when this happens, it will be EVERYONE that has ever lived, so that will include people that were evil and did not make it to heaven, surely they will not have the same 'glorified bodies' as people in heaven.

Where did you come up with that number? What is your source of that data?
