Where is 'hell'

In the original languages there is no word as 'hell'. None of the three words in the original New Testament or the one word in the original Old Testament translated 'hell' meant 'a place of torture'. In addition, there are no scriptures in the Old Testament about eternal punishment, eternal punishing, etc. and the ones in the New Testament that seem to talk about these things, just need better understanding in the context of what Creator-God is really all about.

Does it make sense God would 'kill' em and then 'bake em'? Kill 'em in the flood, then send 'em to hell to roast on spits of agony? That's a monster, worse that history's tyrants. Creator-God isn't like that at all!

The Creator tells us to love our enemies:.Matthew 5:44. Would you think that He would hold a different standard towards, not even enemies, but just those who don't yet know him?

Would God inspire to be written to 'turn the other cheek'.(Matthew 5:39).and not be that way Himself? Well, wasn't God cruel in the Old Testament as the stories there appear to tell?

Creator-God sent Christ to bring good things.(Hebrews 9:11), not condemnation.(John 3:17).as you'll soon see. 

In Psalms 25:8, David said of God, that He is good and upright and will teach sinners in the way, not cast them into an ever burning hell. Also Psalms 145:9. David understood that his soul would not be left in 'hell' or the grave.(see Questions), that a resurrection was going to occur to him:.Acts 2:27,31

Paul too, in Romans 5:6-8 tells us that Christ died for the ungodly. Did He die for them so He could later send them to hell? Gimmee a break! Get real! Does God bring people to change by scaring them?.Romans 2:4

God inspired those who wrote the Bible to describe Himself as a God of love:.1John 4:8,16

Is it loving to create humans with all the pulls and desires that we have built into us, then place us in a society that we had nothing to do with, having just come from our mommy's 'tummy' and into a world with a devil awaiting every opportunity to drag us down a little further. Is it loving to let us live some.eighty years or so, then throw us into an ever burning fire to be tormented for ALL eternity! Hey brother and sister, the equation doesn't match! 

Only a cruel monster, not a God of love, would have you born into life with these 'three strokes against you' and then have you live 80 years or whatever and then cast you into 'hell' to burn, not for equivalent period of time, but for eternity, because of perhaps a bad eighty!

Does God tell us to forgive seventy times seven.(Matthew 18:21,22).and to go the extra mile.(Matthew 5:41).and then not do so himself? It would be the height of hypocrisy for God to throw those into hell who may not have even heard the name of Emmanuel and to not make provision for the 'second mile'. God is not like this! God goes after the lost to save 'em, not to condemn 'em. And God is daily making provision for our 'second mile'. We just need to listen and respond.

Does God tell us to visit.(so as to 'look after' as the original has it).those that have 'pressing issues' as the original has it.(James 1:27), those in prison.(Hebrews 13:3).and to look after strangers, but with those same He deals and shuts them up forever in an eternal prison of torment and never even visits them? What has been taught by organized religion is just another thrust by the dark side to encapsulate you in confusion and evil, evil being those things not evidencing love.

Who has been teaching all this crap about eternal torment in hell? It sure was not from God's heart:.Psalms 106:39; Ecclesiastes 7:29

Does God tell us to have compassion, yet has none himself to those still strangers to Him?.Matthew 25:43-45; 1Timothy 5:10; 3John 1:5;.Hebrews 13:2 "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels.unawares.".They are checking on you by interacting directly with you! 

The Creator was concerned even for the ox or ass that may fall into a ditch. Do you think He would not have greater concern for the crowning achievement of His creation.(mankind:.Hebrews 2:7).and not leave them to suffer endless torment in a much deeper pit?.Luke 14:5; 12:7

Should we believe that His standard is that we should give all to see that others come to know Him while they live, then expect us to turn around and rejoice with Him over an endless torture in hell for them if they stop breathing before they come know Him? Most of us humans would not even do the things to others that some ascribe as God's standard for the wicked. Clearly, there has been alternate philosophies at work.

If we think Creator-God is merciless to those not knowing or even rejecting Him, then we can never develop the love necessary to have a relationship with Him:.1John 4:16,17 "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him..Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because.as He is, so are we in this world."
