Who's In Hell? Pastor's Book Sparks Eternal Debate

    Popular Christian pastor Rob Bell's provocative new book has evangelicals renewing an old debate about hell and salvation.

    If you’re a Christian, do you believe that billions of the world’s non-Christians will go to hell? Do you think the question even matters?

    Pastor Rob Bell thinks it does matter. The founding pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, Mr. Bell is a young and influential Christian speaker who's ruffling feathers with his latest book, “Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived.” It challenges some of Christianity’s most fundamental beliefs about salvation.

    Do you have a link where someone could check it out?

    (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6) 5 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. 6 Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun.

    Psalms 146
    3 Do not put YOUR trust in nobles, Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs. 4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish.

    If you are not conscious you cannot feel burning even cremation fires.

    Hades is the Greek word for the common grave of mankind.
    Sheol is the Hebrew equivalent. These words are commonly mistranslated. Especially in the KJ version.

    You will need more evidence to understand this properly.
    Keep asking and seeking.



    More scripture. DULL


    <a href="/users/3649/bestway/">@bestway</a> - I like your point of view!!!

    Hell is another state of awareness. when you die, you lose your earthly body and take on your spiritual body and stay in a spiritual place to be given a final opportunity to learn aboout the goodness of Jesus Christ. At the time of judgement, if you have truly repented and accepted Christ as your saviour, then you will live with him in eternity, if you reject him you will be tossed in the lake of fire like the bible says. You have a choice, before the judgement period of the world, to choose Christ and avoid damnation or to reject him, the choice is yours and yours alone..



    The lake of fire is a figment of Christian's imagination. It just sounds so comic book.



    Right and you believe people will go to sleep for 1000 years and then wake up and simply start living again. Dud, you realize your church took reincarnation and twisted it to fit their doctrine, right? I will "resurrect". It's called reincarnation. See you on the flip side : )


    <a href="/users/6719/bootsie1940/">@bootsie1940</a> - In other words, you can choose heaven or hell!!!


    Totally agree Colleen. Death and Hades are symbolic. Therefore the lake of fire is also symbolic. The scripture tells you they are symbolic of the "Second Death"

    What is the second death? It is death from which there is no possibility of a resurrection. The first death often referred to as Adamic death is not the fault of the sinner but of our forefather Adam. Hence The true God made a way out for us. See below.
