God consigns no one to eternal suffering. He provides an opportunity to spend eternity in the paradise of the New Jerusalem. If you do not seek your salvation you won't be burned forever in a sea of fire. You simply won't exist in the paradise the saved will share with Jesus.
My friend, you are right in some. But forget not of
Matthew 25:46,“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

But you are right in saying that "God provides an opportunity to spend eternity in the paradise". My friend, you know much, so I want to see you there in Heaven.

The eternal punishment is no life after death. There is no scripture that says man will spend eternity in a lake of fire. That is reserved for Satan. There is serious debate over this, just as there is to the idea of ascension directly to heaven on death. However, this was something added as the Christian religion evolved, just as the idea of burning forever in a pit was added when the early church needed a good scare tactic to keep people in line.

You want to use Matthew, try this one. Matthew 10:28. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Further proof is Malachi 4:1-3 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts

Hell is reserved for Satan and his demons. The end for those who do not repent their sins is soul death. They simply will not exist in the new Jerusalem.

My friend, Revelation 21:8 says,

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

The people in Hell will suffer the flames of the lake of fire. As also said in Revelation 20:14-15,

Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.(And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire).

The Devil's greatest trick was to convince people that he was not real, do not be tricked.

Provide ANY evidence at all that hell exists, either for people or Satan. No, Buy-bull verses don't count. Give us some real, solid evidence.

Give him a few minutes, he'll steal it from somewhere. His writing suffers terribly when he's not stealing it from someone else.

No where did I say I didn't believe in Satan. You, as most do, assume this because you cannot find a good argument. I never said people wouldn't know the fires of Hell, but that they would not spend eternity in torment. I believe they will be subjected to the fire but that they will burn up and be gone and never know the paradise that awaits those who repent and ask forgiveness. We may see things differently but you are the only one of the two of us who assumes you know without doubt that this end will be for those.

In other words, your god WANTS to punish people.

Thank you for finally admitting that people don't CHOOSE to be punished.

My friend, It is there choice weather to belive or not. God does not want people to be forced to Love Him, if so, He wouldent have given us freewill. Now what I tell you is Truth from out of the Bible, if a person does not open the door to their Heart to Jesus, they will forever be in the flames of Hell.
But think of what you gain if you Love Christ as He does you. You get to go to Heaven with the Father, and be FOREVER in Peace, Confort and Love. There is no pain in Heaven, no crying, no jealousy, no hurt, no sin and nothing that brings such wrong. There in Heaven, you will know peace, joy and love... Daughter of God.

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” Richard Dawkins

My friend, There have been many accounts of people who have said that they have gone to Hell and back. Although some maybe true, others are not. It is why you must becareful with this, because Satan tricks and brings people to fall. The video that I posted is of a girl who died for 23 hours and Jesus showed her Heaven and Hell, so that when she returned she could tell people of the truth that awaits us.

There is not much proof outside of the Bible for Hell nor Heaven, but there is much proof of the events of the Bible to be true and of God being real. The video that I posted is something that may be real, but may also be false. By the way she speaks of what she saw, sounds to be what the Bible speaks of and more. You watch it if you want but be warned that it will be hard to watch.
