Featured Hell isn't literal, the worst punishment is that your conscience ceases to exist.

    I disagree. Eternity of torture vs no eternal torture. If one can never be redeemed then I would pick option B.

    Within the Catholic context those people would have their minds altered.

    Such as dis-belief, and possibly non-violence (but, not pacifism). Any thing that is attached to a no.

    Once again I don't understand how you can say there is no hell fire in hell, I started to give each scripture that says it does, and it's not a word meaning something else, but that would take up a lot of my space, when in reality you already know that. so, lets start out with Hell is not freezing cold if there is one.Please tell me where you received this reverlation and Seraphim is not where we get the term Angel and means"burning ones",Seraphim is one of the kind of Celestial beings that are on the order of Angels that are high ranking in Heaven and they call them "Burning one" or "The Fiery ones".
    Angels are not made of fire and wind God says he calls them this because they are swift as a the wind and strong as a fire. Once again I will say there is no proof that scriptures are accurate I don't comment on them.

    "Hell" is literal but not in the way you would generally interpret it.

    Actually what would either matter. You're in freaking hell, if there is one.

    Do you mean conscience?
    Or consciousness?

    Eternal torture in hell vs a end. Still option B

    We will have to take them one at a time. Jarrett Lawrence Emanuel was born on April 4, 1984. This is the exact date given by George Orwell on page 6 of his novel "1984". This was also "the acceptable year of the Lord". Isaiah 61:2. Jarrett is Joshua in Hebrew, the same as Jesus in Greek, and it means "Lord is salvation". Lawrence means "good heart" and it is his father's name, Emanuel means "God with us". Jarrett's mother Vicki lived and worked at the Jefferson Hotel while she was pregnant and until he was born. She was separated at the time and in the process of getting divorced. She has kept her marital surname and also named her son's last name "Emanuel". His father is Jewish.

    Respectfully... this part about the name Jarrett is confusing to me. When I read the name Jarrett, if I were to connect it to a Hebrew name, if would be Jared, not Joshua.

    But that is just what stood out to me about your explanation.

    You are correct. In English, Joshua is translated Jarrett or Jared.

    I believe the Bible indicates that Hell is a real place and that consciences are not erased. However for those who wish to be free of evil the memory of evil is not accessible in Heaven or the Kingdom of God.

    I believe you are welcome to the alternative. I think the worst punishment is not the remembering all the bad things you did but the continual boredom of fire day after day although without a sun moon or darkness there is no way to tell time so there is just endless fire.

    Sometimes people in jail repent and seek salvation. If you think you ought to get off for murder because you were already punished for stealing you have another thing coming as the song lyrics go
