Is Hellfire Real? What I Discovered!!!

22

I did some research and was amazed with what I discovered. I have heard from friends, family and men of God that Hellfire is an Eternal Place of Torment for the Wicked (Evil People) and the Home of the Devil and his agents. I am not alone in this, most of us here also share this belief. However, I came across 3 scriptures that contradicts this belief and teaching: 1. Matthew 25:31-33, 46 (Read). My Discovery - On his Judgement Throne, Jesus will separate the Sheep from the Goat. The Sheep will be rewarded with Eternal Life while the Goat will have Everlasting Punishment. Is this Everlasting Punishment equal to Hellfire? What does Everlasting Punishment mean? The next discovery provided clues to the answer. 2. Jeremiah 7:31 says: Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart (King James Version) My Discovery - God was angry with the Nation of Israel burning their children in the fire. He said he never commanded anyone to do so and it has never come to his heart to do so. Really? If God has never thought of burning people (the goatlike ones) with Fire as everlasting punishment, then how is Hellfire associated with God? Will God deceive us? Never! How else could this scripture be understood? This scripture provided the key to my 3rd discovery and a better understanding to this subject. 3. Revelation 20:12-15 (Read). My Discovery - If Death and Hell and all those whose names are not written in the book of life are cast into the Lake of Fire, then the Lake of Fire must be symbolic. Verse 14 says, the Lake of Fire MEANS the Second Death. Death is the direct opposite of Life. I would then say that, the Sheep will enjoy everlasting life while the Goat will be destroyed forever - Psalms 37:9-10, 34. The floor is now open for sound scriptural deliberation. Quote or refer to the scriptures, please.
