“Everlasting Punishment”

Posted in fear, Jesus, Love, truth with tags on March 6, 2009 by david1963

 Jesus says, “depart from me, ye cursed, into everylasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” 

The agents of Satan: anger, lust, greed, selfishness, and all the other enemies of godliness are also the same enemies that keep us from knowing the “Father.”

Is God a merciless Judge who condemns His own creation/souls to “everlasting fire?” Short answer is: NEVER!

The references in these verses to “everylasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels”- or a place of “everylasting punishment”- have created fear in the minds of millions, of the Devine God as a merciless Judge who would condemn His created children to a damnation for all eternity in the torturous sufferings of hell, without the possibility of relief. Jesus never meant that there is a special place where souls go after death to agonize in an eternity of imprisonment and punishment for the mixed transgressions and/or  “sins” of a life consisting from or just a few dozen years.

Such a concept is totally ILLOGICAL!

Even an earthly judge has sense enough to sentence a criminal according to the nature and degree of his/her crimes.

Man may continue to misuse his free will to hurt or harm himself and others but the earth and its ways are very much different to God and his ways.

I ask you. “How could a man who at death loses his body and becomes an invisible soul be burned in a fire created by material brimstone?”  “Have you received a spiritual phone call or telegram from God about what will happen, that you are so certain He will burn us in hellfire?”

Blasphemy you say?

“What about your unhappiness over that wicked son or daughter of yours?” “Would you heat up a large stove, bind and gag your child when they have fallon asleep and shove them into a large oven?”

Whoever heard of a “Father” burning his own son? FOREVER!

Murderer. Of course you would not do such a thing. “Think” about what I am trying to tell you. You are human and far from the perfection of God, and can not bear the cruel thought of roasting your son alive. Where did you aquire your instinct of love if not from your heavenly “Father?”   “How, then, can you think of your supremely loving Heavenly Father as one who burns His own children/creation in eternal hellfire and brimstone?”

 Short answer: It’s man-made for fearful control.We must have read it in a book or been told this is true by another human being.

Fear is CONTROL.

Who wants to control you? Man or God?

In His Loving thoughts,

David
