I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
In the ordinary explanation, this fundamental meaning of the word is entirely left out, and nothing but eternal torment is associated with it. Here, Brother Pridgeon makes a vital point: brimstone is for purification, not punishment. This thought went unquestioned until the Dark Ages. His purpose was understood to purify and consecrate, not separate and punish.
This Lake of Divine Fire will purify, refine, restore and consecrate til there is nothing left that is contrary to Him. Hopefully, the answer to that question will become more clear from what I will be sharing from the Written Word of God. Only a Believer in Christ can be called a servant. When a person receives the gift of Salvation, that person then becomes a servant of God. It is up to that person to whether or not they remain faithful to the Lord. This is why that JESUS declares to us in this verse, that there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth Profound regret and sorrow.
This Biblical explanation is certainly much different than what is being taught by the mainstream Christian Church. A much closer examination of a number of the parables of JESUS, reveals the same Biblical truths that have already been shared in this article.
There is no such thing as a lukewarm non-believer. NOTE: Have you ever thought about what exactly it is that the Saints who have been faithful, will be ruling and reigning over? There are estimates that 80 Billion people to several hundred Billion people could be born during this period of time.
We now know that our Universe is continually expanding, and that it is now expanding at an accelerated rate of speed. Maybe this is why God created such a vastness of outer space that is incomprehensible to the human mind. This is just a portion of a much larger piece that I have written. JESUS is declaring to these wicked religious leaders that they would indeed enter into the Kingdom of God, but that the publicans and harlots would enter in the Kingdom of God, before them.
After this process by the Lord is completed, the Bible does not tell us how long this process will take then they also will be allowed to enter into the Kingdom of God. While reading, I was looking for some scripture reference and found not one…??? This is the second death.
In his justice he will pay back those who persecute you. And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven.
They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power. When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people—praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him.
The concept of eternity in Hell is terrifying. If you die tonight, where will YOU spend eternity??? This is a perfect representation of how many people react who are so deeply entrenched in the doctrine of ETC that without it it they lose all definition of God and gospel.
Notice that in Bills mind, the love of God is meaningless without eternal torment. How truly tragic this is. Its like saying that if we eradicated the death penalty in the penal code, justice and law would have no more meaning.
Well, there are many nations that have no death penalty and have a much lower crime rate than those who do, yet they still find it necessary to punish people in ways that do not eradicate all hope for their future.
Some would say they have a higher respect for justice because justice is not defined by punishment alone. Justice is about restoration not just retribution. Every judge who sentences someone to jail has made a decision about duration based on the crime and the amount of time it will take to impress upon the person a determination to reform.
They often shorten the judges sentence based on good behavior and provable change of heart. Perhaps paroling someone before the actual sentence is fulfilled should be abolished lest we lose all meaning of what justice really is?
But I suppose if it were your brother or sister or child who is up for parole, the meaning of justice would blossom far beyond just punishment would it not?
So unless the duration of hell is forever, Jesus sacrifice is worthless to us? Unless hells duration is forever, our obedience to God has no meaning?
This is fascinating. To me what is even better, is that you have come to this conclusion, because that is exactly what has been channeled extensively. Hell is not a place of fire, its not of eternal duration, and its purpose is not punishment but correction — because as the individual changes towards loving actions, they emerge from darkness into light. My sources mostly, but certainly not exclusively, are the material channeled by an American lawyer, James Padgett, Period as this references the Bible extensively, sometimes to agree, many times to correct.
This material is a bigger source of spiritual material than the Bible — more words. And in my view, more impressive. It claims that Augustine was the first Platonist theologian, which is flat out nuts. What about Justin Martyr and Origen? The truth is I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) in the middle.
The idea of eternal torment did indeed have proponents quite early in the history of the church—at least within the first years after the Apostles. Universal reconciliation had its share of advocates too, in figures such as Origen and Gregory of Nyssa. The two I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) coexisted for a long time. Credit probably does belong to Augustine for getting the Western church to settle more or less on one side of the issue.
Where did you get that? Do you disagree? Great message, one that needs to be spread throughout the world. I have been a believer for 40 years and have just within the past year decided to be a Berean and see if what the Scriptures say it true.
And oh what truths I have discovered once the words of the Bible are accurately translated. Besides the hell doctrine I have discovered other ideas that are not true, i. But one thing I do know for sure, our Father who is in the heavens does love each of his children unconditionally. It would have been better for Judas if he had never been born. Explain that statement of Jesus. Gregory of Nyssa thought Judas would be one of the exceptional few in torment forever because of that statement.
The Beatitudes, for instance, remind us that deficits now can actually entail blessings. I have very much loved this series. So thank you for the thought fodder. I noticed that you compiled the first two articles into a PDF for download. Out of curiosity, do you have any plans to compile all three into a downloadable PDF?
I would love to be able to have each of I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) on my computer as a quick reference. And if you have no plans of doing that, I would humbly request that you reconsider. Excellent series. I first read the bible cover to cover, specifically looking for the Catholic Hell, close to 10 years ago. Needless to say, by the time I finished the bible I realized that all that indoctrinated fear was a lie. It takes a while to get over that anger at being lied to by people in a position of authority, and you never entirely lose your childhood indoctrination.
The guy who gave me the Scofield Bible was a retired minister, father of a friend, who came to discuss religion with me, and to answer my questions. I had a wood fire going in the stove, and he looked in and told me that the deepest glowing embers were what Hell was like. He had been told this by a counselor at a Christian retreat when he was a boy, and the bible said it was true — so he passed that on to countless innocent people, and his daughter now home-schools her child using a fundamentalist home-schooling program.
What has that done to our psyche? One day the purveyors of this psychological damage may have to face the music, if the public becomes aware of how we have all been intentionally deceived. Share this with your friends, people. One need only look at the news and wonder what all that fear is doing to us.
Without the mythical creation story, there are no talking snakes, no trees of temptation, no fall from grace, no original sin passed on by naked people — oh my! This is why fundamentalists cling so tightly to denial of evolution. An interesting question is how the Catholic Church, which accepts evolution, deals with the issue of original sin, I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette).
I was taught that it was a historical event as a child — now the likelihood of that having been true approaches zero. The foundations are crumbling.
At that point, we are left with having to think about whether our lives can have value and purpose even if this is I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) we get. Evolution will be nothing compared to the challenge consciousness will be if the evidence continues in its current direction. We all know that there is no objective, empirical evidence for gods or afterlives.
None of us has empirical evidence. Could that internal conflict, that low-grade fever of cognitive dissonance? Thanks for chiming in with your evolution question. For me the aha moment comes when our interpretation of those early chapters in Genesis includes what the original Hebrew audience understood as they heard those stories.
Firstly, I am myself an annihilationist. All that stuff originates from Christianity and church religion, not from the Bible.
Certainly, the angels will be in the Lake of Fire forever, because they are immortal beings. But man is mortal, as the Bible plainly states. Jesus warned His disciples about it. The Bible makes clear that you either die, or you live forever. It is final, and forever means forever. This article dismisses the fear of God — that is a very dangerous thing to teach, and any man who teaches this should himself be afraid and repent, since James says teachers will be judged more strictly.
Jesus plainly told His disciples to fear God, and the Bible is very emphatic that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. The New Testament commands us to fear God in dozens of places. That cannot be denied. Yet so many people cling to the one solitary verse which can be twisted to mean the opposite: 1 John However, John is not dismissing the fear of God: he is talking about the confidence which comes from having received the Spirit.
If we have been born of the Spirit and are abiding in Him faithfully, then we have a clear conscience and assurance that we are loved by God. But that does not mean we have no fear of God! Think about that paradox.
Does a pilot fly with fear? Whether you are flying a Boeing thousands of feet above the ground and responsible for the lives of hundreds of people — or dealing with the Living God — it is important in both cases to appreciate how scary and dangerous and truly terrifying that thing is, and to never, ever forget that for one minute, or else you are putting yourself in danger!
And yet, if you are an experienced pilot or you have the assurance of the Holy Spirit then, in the midst of this huge, terrifying thing that you fear, you can have confidence and assurance that you will be safe. But that very confidence is based entirely on the pre-supposition that you have the fear in the first place. So too is a lack of fear of God extremely dangerous. Those people in modern churches are not born-again and do not have the Holy Spirit: they are just like the world, and they love the world, because they belong to it.
All that stuff originates from Christianity and church religion ie handed-down traditionsnot from the Bible. Your articles have been a major help, so thank you for your hard work. Should I consider it just one of the many possibilities, or is it honestly the most truthful, most likely possibility in your opinion? Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately, my personal assurance in an argument will never be able to ease your mind. It really all comes down to your view of God.
Or does he look like the violent warmonger of the old testament, who supposedly instructed the purging of entire people groups? One of the more obvious mistakes in Evangelical theology is the belief in Biblical inerrancy. If, however, that god was the interpretation of a violent people living in a violent world — a depiction that Jesus came to overturn — then a view of eternal torment is untenable. The strictly Biblical argument can be swung in multiple directions, as is true of virtually every debate that has persisted among Protestants.
I have grown up knowing God as Father, and that view, along with the words of Christ, has led me to reject the doctrine of Hell with complete and utter certainly, as well as profound peace. I cannot give that assurance to you, but I can point you back to the Father whom Jesus came to reveal.
Early in the article there is a reference to Romans Every version I have ends at chapter Are we to assume that is a typo? Something that has been skirted around a bit. Point of order: Gregory of Nyssa was not present at the first ever Council of Nicea, as stated above, because that took place inten years before Gregory was born.
Nor did he help to found the creed, because it was first promulgated at said Council. Gregory attended the later Council of Constantinople in where he was involved with amending the creed. I wanted to say thank you so much, I was nearly brought to tears. I have always been a Christian but could never even really stomach the idea of God condemning a person to eternal torture.
I even theorized up something rudimentarily like restorative punishment and the idea of Universal Salvation. But I still felt so alone. It just fills my heart with joy to knw that these ideals I have always seen in Christ represented somewhere in the faith, even if long ago. So thank you showing me. It was then, that I could start seeing my Teacher the Spirit of God, getting through to me. I am 78 and badly crippled in my feet and hands along with nerve damage in my hands.
Let me know if you can do that. I have a debit card if you can. Blessings — — — -Sam. The Brazen Church fulfils an important role in bringing to the attention of Christians that lots of church doctrines are not grounded in the Bible, such as the article above relating to the origins of the teaching of hell. Before I read your article, I worked it out for myself that eternal torture in a hellfire was not the destiny of the wicked. From once you cut out the Hebrew or Greek words in the Bible mistranslated as hell, it becomes obvious from numerous Bible verses that God destroys the wicked for eternity in the Lake of Fire.
I understand what you are trying to say. However, there seems to be plenty of mention of hell before the New Testament. How is this explained? For instance, the following scriptures: Deut For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
Psalm The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. Psalm Let death seize them; Let them go down alive into hell, For wickedness is in their dwellings and among them. I covered the deep because of it.
I restrained its rivers, and the great waters were held back. I caused Lebanon to mourn for it, and all the trees of the I Am Blessed - Eternal (2) - The Best (Cassette) wilted because of it. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Mark If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched—45And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire— Luke But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!
James And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. See: What is Orthodox Hell?
Great articles. Thanks for writing them. Over the past month or so I have read a considerable numbers of articles including these 3 articles that have convinced me that universalism is true. Keith is a christian and a philosophy professor at Yale. Very good article! Very balanced and persuasive.
Finally, Universalism seems most consistent with the character of God as a loving father. This is a very scholarly read into the concept of universal salvation.
However, what is stopping me from embracing this is that the Bible is pretty clear that in the end times not all will have the tears wiped from their eyes. Revelation 21 says that the unbelievers and cowards will be thrown into the lake of fire, the second death.
It is important to understand that the Lake of Fire is not a physical Lake of Fire. Note: The Scriptures do not reveal how long that this process will take.
I have written a 26 page article that Biblically deals with this subject extensively. I am eternal. Because I am eternal, then I shall outlast and outlive every enemy and every challenge.
They all have an expiry date and my joy shall outlast them all. This is good news indeed. I will spread the message of Christ to all that are around me.
