Don't worry about Hell-fire, there is no such thing.
WHAT MANY BELIEVE “Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, ‘eternal fire.’ Some religious leaders say that hell is a state of complete isolation and separation from God.
THE TRUTH FROM THE BIBLE The soul that is sinning it itself will die. Ezekiel 18:4 The dead are conscious of nothing at all. Eccl 9:5
If the soul dies and is unconscious, how could it suffer “eternal fire” or even the pain of everlasting separation from God?
In the Bible, the Hebrew and Greek words often translated “hell” actually refer to the common grave of mankind. For example, when Job suffered a painful illness, he prayed: “I wish you would hide me in my grave “in hell,” Catholic Douay-Rheims Version.” Job 14:13
Job wanted to rest, not in a place of torment or alienation from God, but in the grave.
Hell in English is translated from the Hebrew language (Sheol) which means the grave.
Sheol is an unfamiliar term to many. It is a Hebrew word of uncertain derivation. Many religions teach that the dead are still alive, but as the inspired Word of God shows, those in Sheol are dead, without consciousness. Sheol is the common grave of mankind.
Collier’s Encyclopedia says concerning Hell: First it stands for the Hebrew Sheol of the Old Testament and the Greek Hades of the Septuagint and New Testament.
Since Sheol in Old Testament times referred simply to the abode of the dead and suggested no moral distinctions, the word hell, as understood today, is not a happy translation.”
Is not this definition of hell more logical and in harmony with Scripture? What crime, however horrible, could cause a God of love to torture a person endlessly? 1 John 4:8
