First, a disclaimer. I belong to no denomination. I'm not Baptist, Lutheran, non-denominational, nothing. I'm not a Seventh Day Adventist, I'm not a Jehovah's Witness, I am nothing. I believe in Jesus Christ and His Word, that's it. I think denominations are divisive, and that they help think for us. We adhere to a doctrine we like and stick to it. Well, I have to say that every denomination I've ever looked into has had at least one thing seriously wrong with its doctrine. I also believe that the typical church building form of worship is severely detrimental to the Body and to our growth in the Lord. Besides, if we all have the same Spirit and one mind in Christ, why all the disagreeing? Surely God isn't the One who is confused.
So now I will begin to slowly unravel this bombshell that is all over Scripture. I prayed that I organize it well, because I currently have over 70 passages and/or verses to support this.
I will prove, Biblically, that "hell" in most cases is simply the grave, and that nobody burns forever in an eternal inferno. I will show that the wicked are burned up, and ultimately devoured, destroyed, and consumed.
First, I will list all the verses that mention the word "hell" in the Bible. There are 54 instances. I will show their original Greek and Hebrew meanings for each different version of the word. For example, sometimes hell is translated from Sheol, Hades, Gehenna, or Tartaroo. I will break down the distinctions as necessary.
After that, I'm not sure how I will organize this. I will, however, show Satan's ultimate fate, and show through many books of the Bible that the wicked are burned up in the lake of fire, which is the second death.
I really hope I haven't turned anyone off yet with this. I know it's a radical idea, and people are quick to judge and label me as something I'm not. I am fully confident that this is the truth, or else I wouldn't publish these blogs. I'm too scared to teach anything that isn't true. I don't want to have to answer for errant teachings on the day that I meet the Lord. So stick with me, and dive into what I have to show you. Thanks!
