Question
Thank you for being on the allexperts forum.  It's refreshing to see some honesty in regards to Biblical Doctrine. After reading your profile on Revelation 20:13 you expose the Baptist Hell Doctrine of eternal hellfire as a viscous lie against God.

I was wondering why so many baptist honor the Pope when he is marked as someone who believes in man made doctrine of a hellfire?

Kind regards,
Abe

Answer
The Baptist Doctrine of an eternal burning hell is inconsistent with the God of Love in the Bible. As a parent would you burn your child forever in an eternal flame of torment because your child disobeyed you? Then why would a perfect God do it?

YHWH gave mankind free will and we can choose to listen to God's Saviour or reject him--John 3:16. People who are cast into hell are not there burning forever as many Baptists teach but are DESTROYED by death. "Don't be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the one who can destroy both body and soul in hell."--Matthew 10:28 GWT.

If God has the power to kill and destroy both body and soul in hell then the Baptist Doctrine of an eternal burning hell is in complete error.

"God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life."--John 3:16 GWT"
"Instead, fear the one who can destroy both body and soul in hell."--Matthew 10:28 GWT.

Dying is not a reward of eternal life of torture but the punishment of being destroyed. To destroy something means to end it once and for all. According to John 3:16 God doesn't want us to die but have eternal life and according to Matthew 10:28 God can destroy both body and soul in hell. This is the Biblical Doctrine of hell that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13.

To reject John 3:16, Matthew 10:28, and Revelation 20:13 is to deny "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3

I can answer questions about the Bible of all translations and the various theologies of it's passages. Experience in how the Baptist Religion was founded in it's infancy and how it has splintered into many sects of different theology. If you enjoy the deeper things of God. I would love the opportunity to share the meanings of the true scripture as the meanings are hidden from many. Teaching an eternal burning hell is to reject "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3. The Bible Literally teaches us that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13. This is truly a marvel and the gospel of Jesus Christ that hell gives up the dead to be Judged. Please note the last half of the scripture "they were judged every man according to their works." We would be in error to say works don't matter, if we are literally judged by them.

Experience

Intensive study of Biblical Christianity and where it got it's start. I've learned that being a KJV only can lead a person to being narrow minded and somewhat short sided to Christ's full message of Salvation. Sometimes comparing Bible translations actually leads to a far deeper understanding of God's Word. Punishment in hell after death is double jeopardy and unjust.

Organizations
Once Saved Always Saved is not a Biblical doctrine. Paul told Christians who had already accepted Christ to: “Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”— Philippians 2:12.

Education/Credentials
Baptist Sunday School and intense study of different translations. Studying several different translations gave me more understanding than reading KJV Only. Without grace who of us could get saved and stand before the throne of God? I believe that the antichrist has entered the church and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away. "Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth?"- Galatians 4:16
