The punishment of eternal fire


Traditionalists will tell you emphatically that it is eternal conscious torment in hell.

However, Scripture itself may have something different to say about that. There is an equation below for all you math folks. Follow the Scripture - really look each one up, it's not that many! - and see if this equation does not prove to be true.

Eternal fire (Jude 1:7) = Gehenna (Matt. 18:8, Mark 9:43) = unquenchable fire (Mark 9:43) = lake of fire (Rev. 19:20) = second death (Rev. 20:14) = destruction (Matt. 10:28, 1 Cor. 15:26, Rev. 17:11)

What did you find? Did the equation hold true or did it break down somewhere? If you see a problem, let me know!

Coming soon: A study on the fire of God. I've been working on it for weeks - trying to get it short enough that someone may actually read it! There is so much in God's word that describes His fire and the big picture is more clear than I even imagined.

Spend time in the word and meditate on it - don't just swallow what others tell you!
