    Default Is there really a place call HELL?

    Is HELL real? Better be sure before you say no, because you are betting your eternal life on it.

    I found an interesting and Scripture based website about HellÖ

    Several years ago a book was published, entitled Beyond Death's Door by Dr. Maurice Rawlings. Dr. Rawlings, a spe******t in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, resuscitated many people who had been clinically dead. Dr. Rawlings, a devout atheist, "considered all religion "hocus-pocus" and death nothing more than a painless extinction". But something happened in 1977 that brought a dramatic change in the life of Dr. Rawlings! He was resuscitating a man, terrified and screaming ó descending down into the flames of hell:
    "Each time he regained heartbeat and respiration, the patient screamed, "I am in hell!" He was terrified and pleaded with me to help him. I was scared to death. . . Then I noticed a genuinely alarmed look on his face. He had a terrified look worse than the expression seen in death! This patient had a grotesque grimace expressing sheer horror! His pupils were dilated, and he was perspiring and trembling ó he looked as if his hair was "on end."
    Then still another strange thing happened. He said, "Don't you understand? I am in hell. . . Don't let me go back to hell!" . . . the man was serious, and it finally occurred to me that he was indeed in trouble. He was in a panic like I had never seen before."
    (Maurice Rawlings, Beyond Death's Door,(Thomas Nelson Inc., 1979) p. 3).
    Dr. Rawlings said, no one, who could have heard his screams and saw the look of terror on his face could doubt for a single minute that he was actually in a place called hell!

    The Bible continually warns of a place called hell. There are over 162 references in the New Testament alone which warns of hell. And over 70 of these references were uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Jesus Christ took hell so serious ó He could say without the slightest hesitation ó to remove your eye, cut off your hand or foot, if that would keep you out of hell!

    If hell is not real ó Jesus Christ was the most deceived man that ever lived!

    Iíll challenge anyone to read the words of Jesus Christ and tell me they are the words of a deceived man!

    Jesus Christ knew exactly what He was talking about!
    I donít believe his worm theory, but everything else is Scripture based.

    Of course Hell is real. It's in Norway, I went through it once. It's near Trondheim.

    Yes, I believe there is. There's an interesting book out by Mary Baxter.

    Divine Revelation of HELL
    Habakkuk 2:2-3 Then the LORD answered me and said: ď Write the vision And make it plain on tablets,
    That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

    I don't think Hell exists, except in our own minds, if there, and that's only because you were taught that you would wind up there, if you were really bad. And if you find your there, because of a belief system you have acquired I believe you can change the experience, just by changing your mind about it. God put us here to experience, and free will is part of that. It would be to me, a pretty dirty trick, to allow free will, and then say no wrong decision, because it didn't go along with Gods, that after all would not be free will, just a guessing game possibly gone awry..
    I believe we all will eventually get to God, everyone of us...

    Hi Barnmurphy,

    The Bible continually warns of a place called hell. There are over 162 references in the New Testament alone which warns of hell. And over 70 of these references were uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Jesus taught more about hell than He did about Heaven. Itís real, but whether we believe what Jesus says about it or not is our free will choice.

    Itís all about free will choices, but with all choices come consequences.

    God gave His only begotten Son to die so that we may live in Heaven with Him forever. If we choose not to accept Jesus as our personal Savior we are choosing to pay for our own sins by spending eternity in hell. God wonít be sending people to hell, they will be sending themselves if they choose not to accept God plan of salvation.

    GodÖ itís His court, His ball, His rules.

    If we choose not to accept them we must also accept the consequences of that free will choice.

    God says I set before you life and death, choose life.

    God bless,

    Hey Bro,

    Definitely not the same place Iím talking about. Eternal Hell wonít have any music, just screaming and whaling and gnashing of teeth. Wonít be passing through either, it will be more like the Hotel California, you will check in but you wonít be checking out.

    Thanks for the geography lesson though, that was cool.

    God bless,
    Dave

    No, there is not a "hell" as we were all taught to believe it. Who could ever believe that our God would or could be that cruel to his children? God is a loving God and it is not conditional. He does not need to threaten with eternal damnation. That is man made threat which was used and still is used to control people and make them believe and act one way or the other. If you really know God then you feel the warmth and the presence of his being and you will know then this loving presence could not ever create a hell for his children to live in. We come to this earth to experience life, good and bad for him, and it is what we learn (Good and Bad) which determines our next level in our spiritual growth. If we do not get it right this time, we will get it right the next and such is progression. The world is changing very quickly and the hell and brimstone theory of centuries ago no longer have the impact they once had. Instead of seeing what churches and fanatics want people to see, people now see the true being of Christ and it is a wondrous thing :)

    Hello old friend,

    What Iím telling folks is straight out of ďGodís WordĒ, not Church doctrine, nor is it man made.

    If you are not a Christian and donít believe the Word of God I can understand why you believe like you do, but to speak of Christ and no not the Words of Christ is foolish.

    What is man made is the story that you have come to believe, what man told you that? Please take some time and read Godís Word and you will learn what God says about Heaven and hell. Can you show me anywhere in Godís Word that there is no hell?

    Please donít mislead people into believing that they can live life anyway they want to and not listen to God but still get to Heaven. Godís Word says there is only one way, His way. We as humans donít have to like it donít even have to believe it, but it is still a fact straight out of Godís Word.

    I wish I could tell folks that they can party like itís 1999, do everything their heart desires, believe anything they want to believe, get to Heaven any olí way they choose, but that would indeed be a lie that would send people to an eternity in hell.

    God bless,
    Dave
