    Well you'll be happy to know we all don't.

    At least that's not my belief.

    Nowhere in the Bible does it state one burns in hell at death.

    Take a careful view of this thread and you'll find people have mentioned several different versions of hell. A person's view on hell varies based on the type of Christianity they practice.

    Yup, sorry about my sweeping generalization, but I'am curious though. What is YOUR version of hell? Is it still not a bad place?

    Is Hell Mentioned in the Bible
    2 verses on here describe hell with fire or fiery. :\? Although the rest makes it seem more like a gloomy, quiet, and dark. Just the place for me ;P Bring a couple books and I'm set lol

    Though I believe in neither, I've always sort of considered Hell the worst for the individual and Heaven the best. Even if that is inaccurate, surely Heaven would be overall better than Hell. Even if that is a marginal increase in quality, multiplied by eternity means it is infinitely better. Honestly, if Heaven is eternal one would gain many new connections in Heaven which would surpass even those you knew in life in time. If Hell is as intense as it is often protrayed, an eternal Room 101, socializing and even seeing your loved ones ever again would likely be out. If not, then the new 'life' you'd make in Heaven would match and in time surpass what you would have had with those you knew in life in Hell. After all, you now have infinite time to meet those perfect for you, not just those you happen to meet, and may even be drawn to your perfect matches.

    Heaven, by its nature, must be the answer. Though, ironically, I feel anyone with the strength of character to say Hell really deserves Heaven.

    I see hell as both a place and an event. At the final judgement those who are condemned will be thrown into a "lake of fire" and be destroyed. Here is a verse that sums up my view fairly nicely.

    "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell." Matt. 10:28
    (emphasis mine)
    Also here are some verses that clarify the view.

    "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matt. 7:13-14

    "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom. 6:23

    "...whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
    John 3:16
    (emphasis mine)
    In each case life is contrasted with death or destruction. The Bible never uses a similar contrast between heaven and hell. That dichotomy is an invention of modern preachers. However the first century Christian authors were wanting their audiences to choose between life and death. Also what is interesting is that Matthew, John, and Paul almost never use similar language on any teaching, even something as fundamental as grace. (I don't think Matthew and John ever use the word "grace" at all.) However they all use a very similar language when contrasting life and death.

    Anyway that is my view on the matter. I hope that was clear.

    The most I worry about hell is of what people are choosing to believe and follow today. I didn't have any peace about my natural mother until a minister told me to look at her life and decide for myself where she was and then come to terms about it. I did and decided that she must be in heaven since she had a profession of faith and was baptized. Other family members, I sorrow over. The problems are on this side of heaven and hell, not in heaven. In heaven, God has promised us that there will be no sorrow or tears and I have to trust that whatever the eternal disposition of my family on earth, I will be at peace about it in heaven. As I said, the striving and sorrow are confined to this transient earthly existence.

    if there is a hell, I'm probably headed there anyways, so why not go with those I love?
