The words"Eternal Hell" or "Hell is Eternal" are never used in the Bible and Jesus nost certainly never said it.
Where did Jesus say the words " whosoever does not believe in Me, when he dies , will go to eternal hell and suffer eternal
fire in eternal hell for all eternity"
Jesus never said it, and no one else did either!
Even the word, Everlasting, eternal, forever 166 in the Strong's...says "always was and always will be" "no begining and no
end" So we know that cannot be talking about an eternal hell, since "hell"(Tartarus) was supposedly created for the devil
and his angels....and definitley had a beginning , and will most certainly have an end in the Lake of fire......so hell, whatever
it is...is not eternal. It had a beginning and will have an end.
"eternal fire " is only mentioned one time in the whole Bible, in Jude, and is not referring to "hell" but to Sodom and Gomorrah.....
So then what is this "eternal fire" that burned Sodom and Gomorrah....and why does the Bible call it eternal when we all know
that the fires of Sodom and Gomorrah were not eternal otherwise they would still be burning just as strongly today as they
In Mark 3:29 It talks about "Eternal Damnation" for committing the unpardonable sin of blaspheming against the Holy Ghost...
but the word eternal, again means "no beginning and no end" and
damnation means :
1) a separating, sundering, separation, a trial, contest
3) judgment a) opinion or decision given concerning anything 1) esp. concerning justice and injustice, right or wrong b)
sentence of condemnation, damnatory judgment, condemnation and punishment
4) the college of judges (a tribunal of seven men in the several cities of Palestine; as distinguished from the Sanhedrin,
which had its seat at Jerusalem) 5) right, justice
So you can pretty much take your pick according to the context as to which of these definitions you want to choose as meaning
damnation, but damnation does not mean burning in eternal hell fire, as the Bible never says that, Jesus never said it, and
if Jesus never said it first then who did?
You certainly will not find it at all in the Old testament.
Eternal Hell Fire was made up by splicing together different verses taken out of context in order to frighten people into
obeying the church.....to scare them into submission, and translating certain words to support an eternal hell doctrine.
You can see the concept of some kind of punishment or discipline, what many interpret as being an eternal fiery hell, but
you cannot find those exact words " Eternal Hell Fire" coming out of Jesus's mouth.
You can find "eternal life" and "eternal inheritance" but you cannot find the words "eternal death"anywhere in the Bible.
Even if you search for the words "fires of damnation" or "fires of hell" in the KJV and most other versions the term is never
mentioned. only in one version that that is the NLT version is it mentioned, but you can't check the meaning with the Strong's
concordance, as you can only do that with the KJV.
So you see, from the consensus of the translations of the Bible, hell does not exist as an eternal infernal fiery place of
tormenting punishment for unbelievers.
If so where did Jesus say that unbelievers will go to an eternal hell that burns with everlasting fires for not believing
in Him if the words "eternal hell" cannot be found anywhere in the Bible? Please show me.
You can interpret anything as meaning something you want it to mean, or what someone else says it means, but what is it actually
In the story of Lazarus the beggar, where does it say the rich man's torment will last for eternity? And it didn't even say
that he was there for not believing in Jesus. A lot of imagination has gone into twisting that parable to "prove " there
is an eternal fiery hell.
You can splice verses together from different parts of the Bible to give the "hell" concept, from the KJV, but you cannot
find those exact words, because hell was Sheol (grave and world of the dead) in the OT and Hades in the NT, also the English
word "hell" was given to the Valley of Hinnom, Gehennah, the garbage dump outside of Jerusalem, so in the KJV it looks like
"hell " is talking about one place, when actually there are a few places
mentioned, including Tarturus created for the devil and his angels.
The words "eternal damnation" are only found in the KJV and Webster versions of the Bible ONE TIME ONLY.
Only ONCE, and that is pretty poor considering al the attention that has been given to a so called "Eternal Hell" . You 'd
think that at least Jesus would have warned people that didn't believe in HIm that they would suffer the fires of an eternal
Hell for not believing , and you 'd think that such a warning about something so important as that would be clear and mentioned
all throughout the Gospels, Acts and Epistles, but it isn't.
But Love, the Grace and mercy of God, and His goodness IS. How ironic, isn't it?
So depending upon what version of the Bible you are reading.....and if you want to believe that hell is eternal, meaning having
no beginning nor end, always existed and always will.....only God is eternal. And His Eternal life that always existed that
He gives to us is eternal.
Of course we didn't always have it before, but it existed as Eternal life and that is the only thing God gives to
people that is eternal, and everything else that comes along with it. You get God, you find Jesus, get eternal life and you
get all the fringe benefits besides.....everything else that comes with that , forgiveness of sins, the power of the Holy
Spirit, the desire to live a holy life, the righteousness of God, the Love of God and all the fruits of the Spirit , (seek
first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL these things shall be added unto you) everything else that comes along
is just a by product of knowing God and Jesus, which IS eternal life.
So please stop putting your guilt trip about an eternal fiery hell on people when Jesus never said that there is an eternal
fiery hell. Even the term is no where in the Bible.
Thank God we don't have to be bound to the phraseology, mistranslations and Elizabethan religious mind sets of the KJV anymore...and
thank God and praise Him that there are better versions now in our own language and expressions of our day that set us free
from the dogmatic spiritual bondages of the past.
The KJV is the version David Berg used , because it was the hardest to understand and it was easy for him to just say, "well,
the KJ English said this, but what it really means is this..........." Because no one knew any better then. But thank God
now we do, and no one has to take any spiritual bullying about there being an eternal fiery hell, when the Bible doesn't say
that. Only a lot of preachers and their followers.
Let the truth of Jesus set you free from that religious bondage, get a blessing today!
