Hades, hell, and the four words used to describe hell, in the greek and hebrew describe the place one goes after they die and where they are kept until judgment. Where the rich man is and begs to go back to warn his brothers. I believe the lake of fire is after judgment day, right? So passages that talk a lot about the soul perishing, thoughts perishing, God killing both body and soul in hell, sounds like a soul would no longer be in existence after judgment. Why does it sound this way in the scriptures?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It's not clear to me how you intended this question to be different than your last one. If you meant it as a clarification, please edit the original question instead. If it's really a different question, please make it clear what the distinct part is. My reading is that they are largely overlapping, which we try to discourage. –  Caleb Sep 30 '13 at 10:34
yeah, sorry I meant it as a clarification! I will figure this system out soon! –  Erica Oct 1 '13 at 21:38
In that case you should open the original post and use the "edit" link below the question to revise your original post, either expanding or revising until it is as clear as you can make it :) Good luck... –  Caleb Oct 1 '13 at 21:49
