The only reason to punish, is to prevent future misbehavior.<quoted text>There you go again, bob- inventing new definitions for words. Or are you simply confused, unclear as to the difference between "revenge" and "punishment" (or "penalty" to be strict with the scriptures)...nope, you're just being your usual paranoid self.
That is the **only** reason.
If there is zero possibility of future behavior of any kind?
Then it is simply revenge.
Anyone in hell, by **definition** is never going to leave.
It is pure REVENGE.
Is all about REVENGE.
