No matter where you look, you can’t convincingly defend the idea of eternal torment through Scripture.
Last week, we looked at every single time the Bible mentions “Hell”, and we discovered that, in essence, it doesn’t. While there are 4 words that are sometimes translated as “Hell”, none of them actually mean anything resembling our modern concept of Hell.
BUT… as many of our intelligent readers were quick to point out, showing the word “Hell” is missing from the Bible does not conclusively prove the concept of Hell is not present in the Bible.
So that’s what we’ll be looking at today – the other parts – the Biblical passages that seem to suggest eternal torment without using the word “Hell”. We’ll cover:
- Weeping, Gnashing of Teeth & Outer Darkness
- The Parable of the Sheep & The Goats
- The Parable of Lazarus & The Rich Man (featuring Brad Jersak)
- Revelation & The Lake of Fire
- Paul’s “Everlasting Destruction” In 2 Thessalonians
Plus, we’ll take a look at a key word in John 3:16 that is mistranslated!
