I'm glad to hear you'll take non-Catholic responses. People tend to think of the lake of fire when they think of hell (or hades). Thing is, the Bible states "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." (Rev 20:14 KJV) A few verses before that it says, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and ...

I will take a different approach to the whole idea of hell than the catholic and many protestant directions choose to take and point out these things: Giving the devil his own place to live and torture people to enternity, because he rebelled against God makes little sense.

We must remember that God is not confined to our perception of time - He is limitless, almighty, all knowing. He knows all things that have been, are, and are to come. ...

We don't know why God will remove the vast sea in the new Earth. We can only speculate why the sea is removed. The sea represents chaos and evil. But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. (Isaiah 57:20, NIV) The sea represents death. They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a ...

[Jb 7:12] Footnote in Jerusalem Bible Popular Edition has: in the Babylonian cosmogonies, the Sea (personfifed as Tiamat) was conquered and controlled by one of the gods.

The two events only differ on two points: Who is raised. When they are raised. Both parties are actually judged equally, and we assume the method of the raising is the same. The First Resurrection takes place at Christ's coming and consists of the Righteous Christians only. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice ...
