Death and the afterlife
« on: March 14, 2009, 12:53:55 PM »

For a quick read search for "universal" in this 271 page e-book.

A cheerful ET book. The author admits Rich man and Lazarus is a parable. Because the real hell is far more horrible than just fire and brimstone. Our language just hasn't enough horrifying words to decribe hell. That's why it's a parable.... Page 18-19

This isn't really the type of book you can qoute a few lines from to make some point.
So I think best is you download the book read a few passages and decide if you want to read it all.
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

their arguments are always the same and they accept no other opinion

aeonian punishment/correction = endless torment
desctruction/perdition = neverending torment
judgment = neverending torment
hades = hell, hell is a place of neverending torment by their definition
gehenna = hell
second death = everlasting life with neverending torment

Our language just hasn't enough horrifying words to decribe hell.

If this is true, how could Jesus say this:

Luke 10:14

But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

how can a "hell which is far more horrible than just fire and brimstone." be more tolerable for some than for others? I only read the beginning of this book, I have no great interest in it.
