The false doctrine that there is an everlasting burning Hell is a doctrine that was advocated to convince members of false religion that it was necessary to “pay” financially to get varying reprieves. As far as I can remember, my mother spoke about limbo, purgatory and hell as being the varying destinations of the dead. The amount of money paid reduced your destination. Small amounts or no money was the direct route to hell, whereas the more you paid, the closer you got to going from hell to purgatory, and if enough was paid from purgatory to limbo.

PLEASE ACCEPT MY ACTION IN THE INTENDED CONTEXT!
Now back to the topic on HELL:
PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!
NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY!
2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6
5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to do Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability!)
All remarks in Italics are also pertinent to the other subjects that have been or will be discussed , and also relevant to the Scripture that is being given now.
PLEASE BE PATIENT: I am in the process of repairing all my PAGES on my website.
I am repeating them as POSTS, but they will be available as PAGES, and all the relevant Scriptures will be attached below the PAGES. It is imperative that visitors to the website go to the PAGES and peruse through the Scriptures. All my interpretations are in italics.

It would take more than the average psychopath to burn someone to death, never mind being able to burn that person for a day or more. It is, therefore, impossible to consider that Jehovah God would be capable of doing any similar deed to any person and that into eternity. And that He would do so with no logical reason as well is beyond acceptance.
If you observe the general behaviour in the world today, I cannot imagine anyone really believing in the horrendous Hellfire doctrine. The majority of people do not even drive over a red robot, never mind stealing or other crimes, for fear of legal actions or incarceration. So I cannot see that people would do as much wrong and evil as they do if they really believed that they would burn in Hell and still worse that they would burn into eternity. SO IN ACTUALITY PEOPLE DO NOT TRULY BELIEVE JEHOVAH GOD TO BE SO CRUEL, BUT THEIR INTEREST IN BIBLICAL MATTERS IS SO SHALLOW THAT THEY DO NOT GO TO THE EFFORT OF REFUTING THE TERRIBLE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST THEIR CREATOR. DUE TO THEIR ATTITUDES THEY ARE GOING TO BE ANNIHILATED INTO ETERNITY.
Further, whenever you see a picture it depicts an image of what Satan looks like, with his two horns, three pronged fork and his fire. But that is impossible according to the Bible. The Bible states that Jehovah God is definitely going to totally destroy Satan, as well as death. Then it would have to be Jehovah God Himself that would have to keep the fires burning. Jeremiah 7:31, shown directly below states:
And they have built the high places of To´pheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hin´nom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart. . . (Somebody must have put those thoughts in the parents’ heads. False religious leaders are definitely the answer. It was their doing!)
So from the above Scripture it can be noted that burning persons never “came up into God’s heart.” How can people be so callous as to falsely accuse Jehovah God, and put fear into the hearts of men, and that just for financial and unscrupulous gain? Just look at the amassed fortunes and luxuries of false religion, and you will have your answer. Also, with amassed fortunes comes great power and prestige.
Let us now see what God’s Word, the Holy Bible States about Hell:
Jacob to Reuben about Benjamin: If a fatal accident should befall him on the way on which you would go, then you would certainly bring down my grey hairs with grief to Sheol.” (With accurate Bible knowledge taken in, you will understand that Jacob was stating that if Benjamin died, it would be the death of Jacob. It is accepted by most that Jacob was a good person, and not destined to go to hell, to be forever tortured. So, when it is understood that it was his death he was talking about, it makes perfect sense.)
With the rod you yourself should beat him, that you may deliver his very soul from She’ol itself. (Unfortunately, the “Human Rights” issue rears its ugly head. A person in a very high position in South Africa brazenly stated that she did not care what Jehovah God thought or commanded, corporal punishment is not admissible at all. That position has now been entrenched by law. So the authorities have decided that your child can face eternal destruction, and you will have to accept that. Another two laws state, firstly, anyone under the age of sixteen caught kissing or touching someone of the opposite sex, they will be liable for criminal punishment. The second law mentioned is that if your pregnant daughter is over twelve years of age, she does not need your consent to have an abortion, in other words commit murder. It is no wonder that the human system does not work!)
All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in She’ol, the place to which you are going. (If the above is true, which it is, the Bible says so, then if you were “burning” in Hell, or not, you would not be aware of it. So what purpose would the “burning” serve? The people that would all be going to Heaven, according to all the false religions, would also not know. So what purpose would the “going to heaven” serve? No practicability at all, is there? Are you prepared to say that Jehovah God is not a practical Person that has no logical methods!)
And they have built the high places of To´pheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hin´nom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart. . . (Somebody must have put those thoughts in the parents’ heads. False religious leaders are definitely the perpetrators of the foul deed.)
However, I say to YOU that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court; whereas whoever says, ‘You despicable fool!’ will be liable to the fiery Ge·hen´na. (Here is spoken of a fiery Ge.hen’na, but never ever of a fiery Sheol. Is the Bible talking of one, or two, or more places, or eventualities? The Bible is definitely speaking of two different eventualities. The fiery Ge.hen’na is the eventuality of eternal destruction, as fire in the Bible depicts eternal and total destruction. Sheol, however, depicts the eventuality of dying, and being in a state of non-existence as far as humans are concerned, but being in that state until Jehovah God has you resurrected to judgement.)
Revelation 20:2 & 3
2 And he seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3. And he hurled him into the abyss and shut [it] and sealed [it] over him, that he might not mislead the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After these things he must be let loose for a little while. (It would make sense that the Devil would also suffer death during this while, as it does not seem feasible to have spiritual chains. When Satan is resurrected, he is going to be so taken aback, as when he was last aware, he knew us as we are now. Now all of a sudden he is back in the arena, where earth was, and now again is, a paradise. This will most probably let him believe that he too is immortal, although somewhat confused. He will soon, however, become aware of his imminent total destruction.)
