I'm just saying that would probably be the "hell" which is being called out for everything from your life and instead, it's actually being purified from sin. That's the judgment, so to speak. IF there is a lake of fire, it would seem to be in the presence of God and he is the eternal fire that purifies. Well, there's my two cents :) I think there's a lot of insight in all of these comments as well, there's definitely a lot to take in.

This is exactly how I see it.

Me too. "Our God is a consuming fire"

The dross of sin is burned off leaving only the pure.

Lazarus Short:
 :iagree:And so, perhaps the judgment is merely "This one needs more refining...". :dontknow:

Yes, I think that is often the case.

omantodd2000:
You can never convince someone who wants to believe there is a hell, I have tried many times in the past. No amount of verses is going to change their mind.  It only takes a very small amount of study to understand the meanings behind the words translated as hell. If a person really cared to understand the truth and God had chosen for them to do so they would already have done so with all the information that is available online.
