Well, they will get one small break at the white throne judgement.<quoted text>Once in hell, you won't be able to leave, Christ died for you no matter if you like it or not, take it up with Him when you see Him.
Hell, is sorta like the county jail, then they go before the judge, just before being sent to the lake of fire.
Very sad, and all becouse they are to prideful and stuborn to accept and turn to God, even as He writes His law on their heart, and draws them with His spirit.
I think some of the biggest lies satan tells people, is just wait, you can get right with God later, or hell is not forever, and then heaven
Plus sone religions teach that just about all go to hell, but only long enough to pay for their sins, then heaven
It amazes me just how many different views there are.
I think it is simple, just like when God wrote His commandments on stone, is becouse you either keep them or break them.
We've all broke them. Jesus died for our sins. Yet like grumpy said, if people don't want their sins payed for, then they can, but they don't realize just how serious God views sin. Eternity in lake of fire, ever burning but never burning up. Able to see those, but never able to be with those who are in Heaven. Those in Heaven will have all loved ones wiped from memory that don't come to heaven.
