so have cut off your hands and gouged out your eyes ?I showed one of the teachings about the place of eternal suffering= The place where the worm( maggot) dieth not--No worm or maggot could survive 1 hour in a hot firey place, proving it is symbolism,
since you can't tell figurative language
don't cut off your hands or gouge out your eyes kjw47 it's figurative language
Mark 9:43 And if your hand offends you, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than to have two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched
Mark 9:44 where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched.
I guess you think Jesus is a door
John 10:9 I am the door. If anyone enters in by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture.
this is not figurative language
Matt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.
we know your wrong because if you were right Jesus would not have had to die ,Gods justice scales prove 100% it is symbolism.
your claim is sinners being able to atone for their own sin
water is wetThe worm lives 6 feet under.
so you determine what is true by " if it makes you happy " it's trueThe story about Lazarus there proves symbolism. If one could look down and see their loved ones suffering constantly-no happiness would be in them.
Hades( Greek) = the Hebrew word-Sheol, both translate the grave.
so Jesus lied when he spoke of Lazarus because it doesn't make you happy.
Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this flame.
