Is Hell Eternal, Is It Even Just Hell?

In the accepted cannon, they have translated Hell down to one place; this in fact is not true there are several levels to what the translators (scribes and Pharisees) changed into Hell. There is Paradise, Sheol or Hades, Hell, Lake of Fire, and the bottomless pit. Another thing I would like to talk about through this is, about hell being eternal per the English and aion or aionios per the Greek or eon if you say it in English.

In Luke 16:22-26 you read about Lazarus and the rich man, here it talks about Abraham’s bosom. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Young’s Literal Translation Luke 16:23 – and in the hades having lifted up his eyes, being in torments, he doth see Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom

The beggar is not in hell, he is in Hades or sheol which is next to Paradise from what is said here. The flame of his torment is the refinement of God’s fire; it’s the acknowledgement of your debts and along with whatever discomfort comes being before the Might God knowing you are wrong and dealing with all the things done while you were on the earth.

Luke 23:43 – “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise (Paradisos).”

2 Corinthians 12:2-4 – “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven (Treetos Ooranos). 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise (Paradisos), and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”

Revelation 2:7 – “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise (Paradios) of God.”

(These verses all say the third heaven and pardise in the Young’s Literal Translation and the Greek Textus Receptus. I’ve found of my years of research and study that no all of the translations are wrong, but bits and pieces are translated wrong just enough to change the meaning of things, as well as bits and pieces of the actual Word of God have been removed and the Canon be built around ways to get by but keep us at bay from knowing the full truth of God.)

After reading Luke 16 verses above and the other verses we have confirmation that there is indeed a paradise, as Jesus spoke it on the cross as well as the rich man and the beggar teaching. So the separation of paradise, hell, hades or sheol, and the lake of fire are all clustered into one in the English translation. Which in example, if you took New Orleans, Paris, New York and called them all Paris, it would be incorrect and leave much out that would be known about the two that have been lumped into Paris as well as their locations. So hell is not one place, nor does it carry the same meanings or locations behind it that the others do. This should be common logic to anyone who actually reads God’s word.

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Proverbs 3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Job 5:17-18
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.
(These verses all say chasten or correct in the Young’s Literal Translation.)

God says, that those whom He loves, He disciplines, which is the refining fire. To purify gold they refine it in the fire, which is what God does to those who do not make it to Paradise. He gives us free will and we can choose to follow Him or the devil, we follow Love or we follow corruption, but no matter what we choose, we are still His children and He still loves us dearly, each and every one of us. Just as we would do anything for our children, and our love being earthly and it doesn’t compare to His at all, can you imagine how He must feel for us. We spank our children because we love them, to teach them right and wrong, spankings hurt, but they help mold us for the better. This is in a sense what God will do to those who do not make it to paradise, though I’m not entirely sure what their disciplines will be, there will be some form of refinement or purification.

Matthew 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. (YLT is the same)

This says we will pay our debt to the last penny basically that we owe for what we did on earth.

Matthew 25:41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

YLT Matt. 245:41 Then shall he say also to those on the left hand, go ye from me, the cursed to the fire, the age-during, that hath been prepared for the devil and his messengers.

Acts 2:27 “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (Hades/Sheol), neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

YLT Acts 2:27 because thou wilt not leave my soul to hades, nor wilt thou give thy Kind One to see corruption;

They will be there for a time, not eternity, until they pay the last penny of their debt. In the Greek they use the word Aion or Eon which means for a time or for an age. That tells you that no soul will be left there forever or eternally as they have translated out the true word aion or eon and input the English word eternal.

Also, if you look in Jonah when it talks about him being in the belly of the whale, it states in some versions hell and eternal or forever, but that makes no sense, as Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days. Also, this shows and example of how we can be saved from this place, because you have to think that being in the belly of that whale, no one would have survived three days. So, when Jonah realized his wrong and came to terms with what he needed to do, God released him and brought him to life. It’s a matter of people in sheol or hades, or hell coming to terms with God and paying what debt they owe to the last cent. God does bring all unto Himself eventually, and every knee will bow eventually, and every tongue will confess eventually, and all tears and pain will be wiped away.

KJV Jonah 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice…Jonah 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.

YLT Jonah 2:2 And he saith: I called, because of my distress, to Jehovah, and He doth answer me, from the belly of sheol I have cried, thou hast heard my voice…Jonah 2:6 To the cuttings of mountains I have come down, the earth her bars [are] behind me to the age. And Thou bringest up from the pit my life, O Jehovah my God.

1 Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
YLT 1 Tim. 2:4 who doth will all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

YLT 2 Peter 3:9 the Lord is not slow in regard to the promise, as certain count slowness, but is long-suffering to us, not counseling any to be lost but all to pass on to reformation,

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might (would) be saved.

YLT John 3:16-17 in this we have known the love, because He for us his life did lay down, and we ought for the brethren the lives to lay down; and whosoever may have the goods of the world, and may view his brother having need, and may shut up his bowels from him—how doth the love of God remain in him?

God didn’t send Christ, because He might save, He sent Christ because He would save. His Son’s death will not be in vain. Also, if you read the two verses, they are different, very different. This is one of the pivotal verses in Christianity.

I kept reading in comparison to the KJV and it’s very different as you keep reading. The Young’s on the major Bible sites may not be the correct version, but a newer or updated version that is very different from the actual. I have the Edinburgh, January 1898 which was the second edition to the first from Edinburgh, Sept 10th 1862. I found it on Bible Gateway, but it doesn’t tell me what translation it is, but when I put in young’s and it says modern in the selections as I scroll so I’m not sure what this version is, but it does not match the original one at all. Sorry I got off topic there, I’m just really glad I found that so I do use that version.

Isaiah 53:5-6 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all…..10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

YLT Isaiah 53:5-6 And he is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace is on him, and by his bruise there is healing to us. All of us like sheep have wandered, each to his own way we have turned, and Jehovah hath cased to meet on him, the punishment of us all…And Jehovah hath delighted to bruise him, He hath made him sick, if his soul doth make an offering for guilt, He seeth seed—he prolongeth days, and pleasure of Jehovah in his hand doth prosper.

Christ came to save all, all meaning all not some or a few, all. He defeated death and hell when He went down to preach to the lost in prison which would be hades, sheol, or hell, defeat means to conquer, completely. He says that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. God’s will is more powerful than our little minds can imagine. So much so that He put His own Son on the cross for us, and in doing so, it will not have been done in vain. He came for all to save all. Though some would reject Him, He still loves them. He will show them the truth and because of their stubbornness and false beliefs from this world, will face the refinement and pay the debt on which they owe to the last penny, but they will still at some point return to God themselves.

Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

YLT Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and the death shall not be anymore, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, because the first things did go away.

It says that He will wipe away every tear and no more pain, this would not be possible, if people where “burning in hell for eternity.”
Romans 4:11
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

YLT Romans 4:11 And a sign he did receive of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith in the uncircumcision, for his being father of all those believing through uncircumcision, for the righteousness also being reckoned to them,

Philippians 2:10-11
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

YLT Philippians 2:10-11 that in the name of Jesus every knee may bow –of heavenlies and eathlies, and what are under the earthAnd that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

If every tongue is going to confess, that means all, just as Christ came to save all.

Revelation 20:13-21:1 – “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell (Hades) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell (Hades) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

The sea here is the church, and it giving up the dead is in accordance with the knowing of those who are false teachers and prophets, which are to be delivered to Hades because of their works and their sin of either disbelief or knowing the truth and hiding it inside lies to deceive God’s children/church/people. For a time aion, they will be delivered here for refinement, the only other option really is that they would be completely destroyed, because there will be no more pain or tears at some point and that would not be possible if there were still these false teachers and prophets in torment. Torment not meaning they are being ripped apart technically, but they are facing the truth of what they did on this earth, they are paying in full to the last penny for the things they have done and the debt they owe according to God. Once the new heaven and new earth are formed, there will be no more need for a sea/church, because we will all be with God and there will be no separation any longer. Things will be as God meant them to be.

Enoch 51.1 And in those days the Earth will return that which has been entrusted to it, and Sheol will return that which has been entrusted to it and that which it has received. And destruction will return what it owes.

So for all that has been done on this earth and the corruption that has been brought by Lucifer, the fallen angels, and the people who have willingly followed them or been lured by them through deceitful things will be brought down. All that they saw as truth and all the lies they stood on will crumble beneath them and they will be no more. Again, like we read in Matthew 5:26 all of this and each of them will pay what they owe.

Enoch 54.5 And he said to me: “These are being prepared for the hosts of Azazel, so that they may take them, and throw them into the lowest part of hell; and they will cover their jaws with rough stones, as the Lord of Spirits commanded.

This is talking about the immeasurably weighted chains that are being prepared for Azazel and his host. It speaks of the lowest part of hell, which in turn tells us that there are even levels to hell.

Hell being more than one place as I have shown above, and then we come to the eternal part of it, the words that are used in the Greek to describe was is translated into eternally in hell are kolasij aion.

Word: kolasij Pronounce: kol’-as-is Greek: κολασιν
Strongs Number: G2851
Orig: from 2849; penal infliction:–punishment, torment. G2849
Use: TDNT-3:816,451 Noun Feminine
1) correction, punishment, penalty

An aion or eon means an age or a time. It doesn’t make much sense that it would be forever if every tear was wiped away and there was no more pain. Kolasij which is given above can mean correction and in the context in which this is written it does mean correction, just as God states that He disciplines those He loves and He loves us all.

Strong’s Greek: 165. αἰών (aión) — a space of time, an age –biblehub.com/greek/165.htm
Definition: an age, a cycle (of time), especially of the present age

Word: aiwn Pronounce: ahee-ohn’ Greek: αιων
Strongs Number: G165
Orig: from the same as 104; properly, an age; by extension, perpetuity (also past); by implication, the world; specially (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future):–age, course, eternal, (for) ever(-more), (n-)ever, (beginning of the , while the) world (began, without end). Compare 5550. G104
Use: TDNT-1:197,31 Noun Masculine

Matthew 25:46 for example, the way this word is used is αιωνιον or aionios which is in context age-long. An Age does not mean eternal but in some instances they will try to make it seem as such, I believe what they were portraying which actually makes logical sense in all the instances where this is used besides when God speaks of the punishment for the fallen angels which it is possible they will be destroyed, is that it is a long period of time it’s not quick like our lives, it might be longer than even we will live. The only time that the word eternal should apply possibly as it is in the English meaning is for the angels.

In the Young’s Literal Translation Matthew 25:46
And these shall go away to punishment age-during, but the righteous to live age-during.

KJV Matthew 25:46 – And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Greek Textus Receptus
και απελευσονται ουτοι εις κολασιν αιωνιον οι δε δικαιοι εις ζωην αιωνιον

I found the article below which explained what I’ve written above exactly as I was trying to explain it and had previously researched this info before coming across this, but this is well written so I wanted to add this in to point out some facts that many people are unaware of, as well as reiterate what I’ve stated above. If you don’t dig you will remain on the surface of mans word and man’s world and you will miss God’s Word and the Heavenly Wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

“Eternal” Punishment (Matthew 25:46) Is NOT Found In The Greek New Testament.
By Tony Nungesser and Gary Amirault

The entire concept of eternal or everlasting punishment hinges primarily on a single verse of Scripture– Matthew 25:46. This is the only place in the entire Bible where we find these two words together AND only in some Bibles. There are over a dozen English translations which do NOT contain the concept of “eternal punishment” on ANY of their pages, NOR the pagan concept of Hell.

The Greek form for “everlasting punishment” in Matthew 25:46 is ”kolasin aionion.” Kolasin is a noun in the accusative form, singular voice, feminine gender and means “punishment, chastening, correction, to cut-off as in pruning a tree to bare more fruit.” “Aionion” is the adjective form of “aion,” in the singular form and means “pertaining to an eon or age, an indeterminate period of time.” (Note: the two words in many, not all translations become reversed when bringing the Greek into English, that is, “kolasin aionion” literally punishment everlasting is reversed to everlasting punishment so as to make better sense in English.)

“Aionion,” as shown above, is the singular form of the adjective of the Greek noun “aion.” Many people unfamiliar with the Greek do not realize that the endings of the same word change (inflection) to indicate its mood, case, gender, etc. Therefore, “aionion” may appear with different endings. “Aionion, aioniou, aionios,” for example, are all different inflections of the adjective form of the noun “aion.”

The noun “aion” in Greek literature has always meant “an indeterminate period of time. It could be as short as the time Jonah spent in the belly of a fish (three days or nights even though the KJV has him in the “belly of Hell” “forever,” obviously a mistranslation; see Jonah 2:2, 2:6.), the length of a man’s life, or as long as an age.

The Bible speaks of at least 5 “aions” and perhaps many more. If there were “aions” in the past, then aions must have an end. The New Testament writers spoke of “the present wicked aion” which ended during that very generation. Obviously, it was followed by another “aion”– the “aion” in which we presently live. If there are “aions” to come, it must mean that this one we live in will also end.

There is a verse which says “the consummation of the aions” proving that each “aion” ends. So how can they be eternal?

There is “the coming eon” (Matt.10:30, Luke 18:30
There is “the present wicked eon” (Gal.1:4)
There is “the oncoming eons (future)(Eph.2:7)
There is “the conclusion of the eon (present) (Mt.13:39,40)
There is “the secret concealed from the eons (past) (Eph.3:9)

Plainly, the Greek word “aion” transliterated “eon” cannot mean “eternal.” A study into the Greek of the Biblical period and before will bear this out.

“Aionion” is the adjective of the noun “aion.”

Since grammar rules mandate an adjective CANNOT take on a greater force than its noun form, it is evident that “aionion” in any of its adjective forms (ios, ou, on) CANNOT possibly mean “everlasting” or anything remotely indicating eternity or unending time.

For example, “hourly” cannot mean “pertaining to days, weeks, months, or years. The word MUST mean “pertaining to an hour.” Therefore, “aionion,” the adjective form of the noun “aion” which clearly means a period of indeterminate TIME, CANNOT mean, “forever and ever, eternal, everlasting, eternity, etc.” or other words which connote timelessness or unending ages.

Therefore, those many Bibles which do NOT contain the teaching of everlasting punishment or Hell are true to the original languages of Greek and Hebrew. Those which teach everlasting punishment or Hell are false. Scholars are just as easily subjected to the “traditions of the elders” as the rest of us. It’s time to let the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible break down the traditions of men.

Here is a list of Bibles which have taken major steps towards correcting many of the corruptions found in the King James Bible, NIV, NASB, NRSV, Amplified, as well as other leading selling Bibles:
Some of them are published by leading Evangelical Christian publishers like Baker Book House, Kregal and Eerdman’s Publishing. Here’s a partial list of some English Bible translations that do NOT contain Hell nor the concept of everlasting punishment: Rotherham’s Emphasized Bible (Kregal Publishers), Young’s Literal Translation of the Holy Bible (Baker Book House Publishers; Robert Young is author of the famous Young’s Concordance), Concordant Literal Translation of the N.T. (Concordant Publishing Concern), Scarlet’s New Testament (Nathaniel Scarlett, 1798), The New Testament (Abner Kneeland, 1823) Emphatic Diaglott (Greek/English Interlinear), The New Covenant (J.W. Hanson, 1884), New Testament in Modern Speech (Weymouth, 1910), The Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible (1976), The Twentieth Century New Testament (1900), The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Anointed (James L. Tomanek)1958), The Western New Testament (1926), The New Testament, a Translation (Rev. Edgar Lewis Clementson, 1938), The People’s New Testament (Arthur Overbury), The New Testament, A New Translation based upon the Oldest Manuscripts (Johannes Greber, 1980) Jonathan Mitchell New Testament (2009) Far Above All New Testament (2009).
There are other translations like the Companion Bible King James Version, American Standard Version (1901), the Newberry Reference Bible (Still published by Kregal Publications), and the Riverside New Testament by Ballantine (1934) which contain footnotes, marginal readings and appendages which point out that several key Greek and Hebrew words have been MIStranslated by such Bible versions as the King James Bible.

Book of Enoch/The Bible Scripture Comparison

Enoch is referenced in the Canonical Bible so many times either by name or reference of a verse meaning the same things. So I have gone through and done some research to show you all the truth of this, that we are not being given all the words of God, but merely a small portion. It is up to you to see past the scribes and Pharisees of the centuries and seek out the whole of God’s word. My question to you is who told you that we should not read these books? Who told them? Who told them? You are laying your faith upon men and not God. History is there for a reason. Many of the books from those times help us understand those times in history better, so why not these that actually reflect God/Jesus/Holy Spirit. Think about this and pray about this.

[Enoch is an antediluvian book – before the time of the biblical flood.]

Hebrews 11:5-7
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him; for before [his] translation he has the testimony that he had pleased God. 6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]. For he that draws near to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them who seek him out. 7By faith, Noah, oracularly warned concerning things not yet seen, moved with fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which [is] according to faith.

In closing with the comparisons, I will remind you that Jesus said in Matthew 4:4
4 But he answering said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which goes out through God’s mouth.

Luke 3:36-38
36 of Cainan, of Arphaxad, of Sem, of Noe (This is Noah in English), of Lamech, 37 of Methusala, of Enoch, of Jared, of Maleleel, of Cainan, 38 of Enos, of Seth, of Adam, of God.

Matthew 24: 38-39
38 For as they were in the days which were before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day on which Noe (This is Noah) entered into the ark, 39 and they knew not till the flood came and took all away; thus also shall be the coming of the Son of man.

Luke 17: 26-27
26 And as it took place in the days of Noe (This is Noah), thus also shall it be in the days of the Son of man: 27 they ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all [of them];

Romans 1:18
18 For there is revealed wrath of God from heaven upon all impiety, and unrighteousness of men holding the truth in unrighteousness.

Isaiah 55:6-7
6 Seek ye Jehovah while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto Jehovah, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Abusers of themselves with mankind

In the KJV it says “abusers of themselves with mankind”. So many people try to throw this out as meaning homosexuality, please research your sources before you go proclaiming translations as something they are not. This is one of the only translations that actually gets it remotely correct on 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. The ancient Greek term is hard to find in Greek literature, but when it has been used it is used as a class struggle, where a person in a HIGHER POSITION abuses someone in a LOWER position. Also, the term has another more known meaning in shrine prostitution. Where a male would castrate themselves and be on the receiving end of sex unto a false god, such as Molech (which I have mentioned before).

Philo, The Special Laws, III, VII, 40-41: “(40) And I imagine that the cause of this is that among many nations there are actually rewards given for intemperance and effeminacy. At all events one may see men-women (androgynes) continually strutting through the market place at midday, and leading the processions in festivals; and, impious men as they are, having received by lot the charge of the temple, and beginning the sacred and initiating rites, and concerned even in the holy mysteries of Ceres(Cybele)”

This indicates they were in charge of the Temple unto Cybele. This was part of the term (which cannot be separated). Reguarding the first definition(abuse of someone lower than you), which is stated above, only a few ancient Greek texts use it in such a way (Sibylline Oracle 2.70-77.10 – one of the more ancient texts that uses the term).

http://www.clgs.org/arsenokoit%C3%A9s…

Section “On Justice” from Sibylline Oracle 2: “(Never accept in your hand a gift which derives from unjust deeds.) Do not steal seeds. Whoever takes for himself is accursed (to generations of generations, to the scattering of life. Do not arsenokoitein, do not betray information, do not murder.) Give one who has labored his wage. Do not oppress a poor man. Take heed of your speech. Keep a secret matter in your heart. (Make provision for orphans and widows and those in need.) Do not be willing to act unjustly, and therefore do not give leave to one who is acting unjustly.”

This would qualify “slave owners” from the 19th Century, due to how they abused slaves. “Abusers of themselves with mankind” WERE slave owners!!!

NOW DAYS, we are expected to believe and many do, that it is referring to homosexuals. (=ignorance/hate/lies/false doctrine) This is dishonest and causing so much hate in our country alone, not to mention the other countries. Just how the devil wants it, people have allowed it to be.

The only definition that is related to “homosexuality” is one that also includes “false god worship” as part of the definition. First, NO homosexuals castrate themselves. Second, they are not worshipping false gods such as Cybele or Molach while having sex! Lord knows I don’t!

The sin was idolatry, mixed with sex acts. This is what has been lost in its meaning. So “slave owners” and those who rape and abuse others are ALSO being discussed when this term is used. I am guessing Paul was referring to both meanings when he spoke of this, but he by no means was talking about homosexuals.

Do Christians push people away from God?

I heard on the radio this weekend, one of the DJs asking, “Do Christians push people away from God?”

My answer to that would be yes, a lot of them do. We are called to show others the love of Jesus, PERIOD. After that, it is the Spirits job to break down their proud soul and begin to help them grow to be like Christ. It isn’t a happen in a day aspect, the Holy Spirit has to purge them of the things that hurt them. We as brothers and sisters in Christ can come to one another in love and help each other along, but those who do not know God do not understand sin. They don’t understand God’s Word, they are carnal minded until that appointed time God reaches into them and the Holy Spirit connects with their spirit.

1 Cor. 1:18 18For the message about Christ’s death on the cross is nonsense to those who are being lost; but for us who are being saved it is God’s power.
1 Cor. 2:14Whoever does not have the Spirit cannot receive the gifts that come from God’s Spirit. Such people really do not understand them; they are nonsense to them, because their value can be judged only on a spiritual basis. 15Whoever has the Spirit, however, is able to judge the value of everything, but no one is able to judge him.

You can judge the value of things, in other Words if something is good or not, (this is called discernment) but you cannot judge people, that is God’s job not yours. There are too many people out there sitting on judgment thrones casting their opinions over people. Stop it! Stop breeding hate! Stop persecuting people! Stop being ignorant!

Matthew 7
1“Do not judge others, so that God will not judge you, for God will judge you in the same way as you judge others, and he will apply to you the same rules you apply to others.3Why, then, do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, and pay no attention to the log in your own eye?4How dare you say to your brother, ‘Please, let me take that speck out of your eye,’ when you have a log in your own eye?5You hypocrite! First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will be able to see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

How clearly do we really see though, enough to really judge someone? We don’t! We see clearly enough to share God’s Word with people, to talk to them, to help them learn, and to give them whatever Word God may have given you for them. Be careful not to judge, because God will judge you with the same standards on which you judge others.

John 8:7… “Whichever one of you has committed no sin may throw the first stone at her.” (Just my curiosity, but right before that, Jesus wrote something on the ground…I wonder what He wrote. It never tells us what He wrote. )

Some may argue that if you are in Christ, you are sinless or righteous. This is true, before God you will be seen as sinless and righteous, but you are not of yourselves sinless and righteous. Jesus is your righteousness.

I would ask you to speak up and post a comment if you think you are sinless, I haven’t met someone yet who is sinless other than Jesus Christ. If you think this of yourself, please tell me why.
