The False Doctrine of Hell Exposed

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in HELL.

What is Hell? If you asked the average person, they would probably tell you that “hell” is the place where bad people go. Christians will tell you that this is the place of eternal torment for the wicked and unbelieving people who didn’t repent and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Go to Google and perform a search on the word “hell” and you will see dozens if not hundreds of websites discussing the realities of hell. There are also countless videos on YouTube about personal testimonies from people who claim to have gone to hell and then are allowed to come back to share their story with the world. This is nothing more than a tactic to scare people in to being Christians. I will tell you with the utmost confidence that these people are deceived and others are just flat out telling a bold faced lie. People get caught up with the fantasy and drama of hell and fail to realize that the teaching of hell or eternal punishment contradicts what the scriptures teach. The truth is that the word “hell” has no place in the scriptures and it is a terrible translation for the words in the original languages that it represents.

Below is my series in which I explain all the meanings of words that represent hell and I explain the truth about this terrible false doctrine that has been and continues to deceive millions and millions of people all over the world.

    1. The same thing that happens to the righteous…

      Ecclesiastes 9:2 ALL THINGS COME ALIKE TO ALL: THERE IS ONE EVENT TO THE RIGHTEOUS, AND TO THE WICKED; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

      If we continue reading in Ecclesiastes 9, the context is clear that the one event that happens to the righteous and the wicked is finding our end at the grave in death.

      When a person dies, they are dead and being dead is the opposite of being alive. There is NO hell for the wicked or a literal heaven for the righteous after death. Scripture tells us that the dead know nothing. It is in the resurrection that people experience life again.

      In John 5:28-29 Christ tells us that there will be two resurrection events, the first which is the resurrection to life and the second which is the resurrection to judgment. In the resurrection to judgment, God will judge the world in righteousness. The wicked will suffer from God’s purifying judgment but God is a fair and just God and He will judge the world in a way that will eventually produce righteousness in everyone.

      Isaiah 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for WHEN THY JUDGMENTS ARE IN THE EARTH, THE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD WILL LEARN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

  1. Lol the author is severely confused. Brother, take a look at Matthew 7 and you will read that God Himself in the flesh is preaching on Hell and the realities of it. If you miss this, you misrepresent the gospel. Change the name of your blasphemous website. You are preaching a false gospel and numbing the reality of torment and punishment for the wicked. The just and righteous and holy God we serve will not be held back from pouring out His wrath on those whom reject Him. And be aware that the worst of the punishment is for so called Christians, those whom had an opportunity to turn to Christ. And those whom are teachers will be judged even more harshly. Be warned. Do not take the gospel lightly. Turn back to our merciful God and He will remember your sins no more. You are fulfilling the scriptures about false teachers.

    1. Hello spiritual terrorist! I hope you are having a good day… Let me start by saying that you are not the first hell-lover to come on this site spewing your evil hate rhetoric in regards to the pagan hell of Christendumb. Matthew 7 has NOTHING to do with hell and the word hell is not even found anywhere in that chapter. I have spent a lot of time explaining why hell is an erroneous word and why it has no place in the bible. I have written an entire series explaining all of the translation errors associated with the damnable teaching of hell so I will not waste my time repeating that information hear just to entertain you. You understand very little when it comes to understanding the purpose of judgement. Judgment produces correction not unending merciless torture in fire. An earthly parent punishes their children as a method to influence change in behavior not to induce pain and suffering. When my children disobey me, I take away things they like, I don’t put them in my oven and bake them to death… That’s evil and insane yet that perverted perspective is more in line with what you endorse. There is nothing just, righteous, or holy about billions of parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren being barbecued alive in real fire for all eternity with no hope of redemption. I’d like to see the look on your face if God sent your mother or daughter to be tortured in the damnable hell you boast about. Would you set back in a recliner and have a coke with popcorn? Or would you plead with God to have mercy on them to free them from such a fate? Thank God, the Creator of the Universe is not limited to the mental perversions of sinful humanity. Make no mistake about it, God will judge the world but like I said before, you do not have a clue what you are talking about when it comes to the judgment of God. Let me show you what happens when God’s judgments are in the earth;

      Isaiah 26:9 With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

      Did you read that? When God’s “JUDGMENTS” are in the earth, who learns righteousness? THE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD!!! Who is left out of the inhabitants of the world? What do you say to that? What scriptures will you quote as to prove Isaiah 26:9 to be a lie or to be contradictory? Isaiah 26:9 is a statement of fact not opinion or interpretation so your disagreement with that prophecy is your personal problem.

      Have the scales of darkness fallen from your blind eyes? I doubt it… You do not know the gospel of Christ… You know the counterfeit gospel of Christianity which is no gospel at all, it is spiritual terrorism. I welcome honest dialogue, criticism, and even disagreement, but I will not tolerate any promotion of the heresy of hell. I will speak out against it every time boldly and openly when necessary but I will not engage it. I made this comment section for readers to ask questions and to provide feedback from what I’ve written. You have provided nothing coherent or useful just regurgitated fear mongering Christian dialogue fueled from years of Christian indoctrination.

      Note: I will NOT be changing the name of this website… Christ is the Savior of the Whole World and He will not fail…

    1. “WOW,” I was taught and believed that multitudes upon multitudes of humans will suffer “eternal torment” for 100 trillion years, and then another 100 trillion years, and then another 100 trillion years, and it goes on and on with no hope of it ever ending. I am certain that each one of us, deep inside of our very being, know that something just does not add up concerning this picture, but we just can’t quite figure out what is it that we are not understanding correctly.

      The true biblical teaching is neither the traditional Christian view of hell, nor the view of annihilation. Our great God is neither a great torturer nor a great annihilator, but He is the great Saviour of the world.

      The mystery of the finished work of Christ on the Cross will one day reveal the perfect plan of God for the entire human race, which does not include “eternal torment” or “eternal annihilation” for one single person!

      I have written upon this topic, but it is much too lengthy to post on this site. Below is a sample. If anyone would like a copy in it’s original Word Document Format, feel free to e-mail me and request a copy, and I will e-mail you a copy.

      ………. What is the “GOOD NEWS” of the Gospel of Christ? ……….
      (Re-examining the widely held belief of “eternal torment” in “Hellfire”)

      There are some Biblical topics which in order to get a better and clearer understanding of require a lengthy Biblical explanation. This Biblical topic is certainly one of them. After all, there is certainly NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT than “our eternal purpose” & “our eternal destination!” Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for us to have a better and clearer Biblical understanding concerning this most important topic.

      My purpose for this writing is to Biblically “expound” upon (1) is there really going to be “eternal torment?” (2) is there really going to be “eternal annihilation?” (3) to give a Biblical answer to the question “If there is no “eternal torment,” and if there is no “eternal annihilation” of our very being, then what are we being saved from, and what is our being here during this present time on earth really all about?”

      I was a Christian for 38 years before the Lord opened up my Spiritual understanding to see more clearly some Biblical truths that I had not properly understood in regards to the finished work of Christ on the Cross.

  2. Most pastors talk about the compassion of Jesus Christ and how He went to the cross and died for us so that we might be saved, others talk about how Jesus Christ cast out demons and healed the sick and that is what they base their ministry on, but today it is not popular at all to take everything in the bible that Jesus Christ said and preach on it, for the son of man is the one who said hell fire.

    Mat 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

    1. It amazes me that I can write an entire article discussing the Greek word “gehenna” and how it has NOTHING to do with Christianity’s pagan hell yet I still get people quoting these spurious hell verses as if they have the slightest clue as to what they are even talking about. Do you know what Christ is talking about in Matthew 5:22? The only word you see is hell and because you see hell you think that provides all the validity you need to justify Christianity’s most vile doctrine ever invented. The topic of discussion that Jesus was having was the subject of JUDGMENT and comparing the old way of judgment according to the law and the new judgment according to the much higher spiritual standard of God that Christ was holding his disciples to.

      Matthew 5:21-22 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

      Now what is “hell fire”? Well, the word hell is translated from the Greek word “gehenna” which is a transliteration of the two Hebrew words “gay” and “Hinnom”. It is properly rendered as “the valley of Hinnom” and in the bible, this place is described as a place where the Israelite’s had their own children pass through the fire as a sacrifice to pagan gods. Historical documents have revealed that this “valley of Hinnom” was also a place of waste or the local garbage dump where trash and the bodies of dead criminals and animals were thrown. The fire in “gehenna” was used to destroy the garbage and rotting flesh and that is the reason behind Christ using literal “gehenna” as a symbol for the destruction of the works of the flesh. Literal “gehenna” or the actual physical location on earth is a city with parks and trees. There are no more children being sacrificed there and there is no fire there as well. Christ uses “gehenna fire” symbolically… We all know that “murder” is wrong and that a person goes to court to face judgment for such crimes but our human courts do not address the sins of the heart for which all sins are manifested. God’s judgment is a judgment that will destroy the carnality of the human heart for out of the heart the mouth speaks. So being angry and arguing with someone typically results in speaking obscenities (calling them a “fool”) which can lead to actual murder and to God this is no different than murder itself. Christ goes on to talk about being reconciled to your brother if they have been offended in the very next verse – he doesn’t say anything about salvation or accepting himself as a way to avoid going to Christianity’s hell fire. So what does it mean when God uses the “fire” of His judgment to destroy the WORKS of the flesh?

      1 Corinthians 3:15 If anyone’s WORK is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be “saved”, yet so as through FIRE.

  3. Please excuse my lack of english language.
    First of let me tell you that I totally agree with you. It’s a false man made doctrine.
    There is another important point of view which seems to be in 99,99% of the cases….approaches neglected.
    I’m ptetty sure that the eternal punishment in hell is on contradiction with man’s free will.
    If the eternal punishment is true it means that we have no free will and the free of choice. It means that God is forcing every one of us to choose Him. Now wouldn’t be that an act of extortion?

    YOU CHOOSE ME OR YOU WILL BURN IN HELL FOREVER AND EVER!!!!

    Is that your loving God you worship?

    So sad that today’s Christianity is full of false doctrines.
    Two days ago I was watching on YouTube a vid by some Ruben Israel guy. Oh my graceful God. I couldn’t watch more than 5 minutes. The apostasy is here,…I see this kind of hypocrisy and legalism everywhere.

    God bless all those who put their trust in Jesus. I’m an easy believer, saved by God’s grace through faith and not because of my own works. Glory to loving God!

    1. I’ll probably write a paper on this at some point but just so you know man does not have a free will. The belief that man has a free will might be the oldest lie ever concocted by the minds of men. The idea of “choice” being free from influence is actually an oxymoron for there is no choice that can be made without some form of influential data. The fact that most people choose based on their own personal preference creates the illusion that choice is free but what you prefer still requires influence. The ability to choose has nothing to do with freedom of the will for humans make hundreds of choices everyday but all choices are caused by something. Case in point; most adults who work set their alarm to wake themselves up in the morning so they can get ready for work. When that alarm goes off, you wake up but your body tells you to keep sleeping. You ignore what your body tells you to do and you get up anyway… Why? Is that an example of freedom of the will or did something cause you to make that choice? The cause is quite evident for working and earning money to be able to live is a much more powerful cause then continuing to sleep in your bed. Were you forced to go to work? Maybe in a way but force is not really a good work – MOTIVATION is a better word and it just so happens that the majority of people that believe in a literal fire burning hell are motivated to believe it based on fear. Fear is a very powerful motivator and with it you can get people to do just about anything. God doesn’t use fear to motivate humans to change, He uses corrective judgment that comes from a foundation of love similar to that of human parents and their children. I don’t force my children to do my will… I motivate them with love and corrective teaching. With all of that said, nobody can choose God anyway without God first drawing that person so the idea that a person can just choose God is actually illogical and impossible.

      Note: I watched a little bit of that video and it is nothing new that hasn’t been done before. Those holier than thou Christians that go to the places of sinners only to condemn them do it for self-righteous purposes. I can assure you that their hearts are just as evil if not more than the sinners that condemn to their pagan hell. I wouldn’t give a person like that 2 seconds of my time as it would be 2 seconds wasted…

  5. My name is Alan Finch. I became a Christian 42 years ago.

    It is important to understand that the Lake of Fire is not a physical Lake of Fire. The Biblical phrase “Lake of Fire” is symbolic for a Spiritual Lake of Fire which is representative of the FIRE of God’s Spirit that is going to do a transforming work of “Divine Purification” in each individual that comes before the Great White Throne Judgment. This transforming work from God’s Spirit will give these individuals a full understanding of God’s Boundless Love for them and the entire human race. (Note: The Scriptures do not reveal how long that this process will take)

    I have written a 26 page article that Biblically deals with this subject extensively. If anyone would like a copy, feel free to e-mail me and ask for a copy, and I will e-mail you a copy.

  6. The Real Gospel of Christ: Thank toy for throwing some lights to the subject! I will read it all soon as possible.
    I’m a newly saved to Christ, but many things around other Christians have still been confusing me.
    I have always been believed in God since I was born. But my short story so far is, that my mom got baptised as a Jehovah’s Witness in 1993.
    And I followed started to study with them 10 years later and was baptised in 2007. Then short after I developed a depression to the cause of the witnesses society of social control, which devastated me mentally. We can say, that I in many years got raped spiritualy and I today have some struggles of PTSD.
    So last year, Jesus came to me in a vision and saved me, after I watched some strong evidences about which false prophets The Watchtower Organisation is.
    Many things have hurted me in the society, but some things where also good. They didn’t believe the literally hell is biblical, with same points as to bake the children if they are disobeying. They actually used (funny enough) the word Gehenna, as you are describing.
    For me it makes sense. When parents has so much love to their kids in relative righteousness, we can be sure, that God have even more in righteousness, definitely in absolution! So my question is why should a kind, loving God let his kids struggle forever in a hellfire? I better want to stop existing then! Gehenna should be total destruction, as I was taught by the witnesses.
    Well, we don’t know how accurate the things it, so I look forward to that day God will reveal everything and can be more than 100% sure, that hell isn’t existing. My intuition says, that it doesn’t, and for me it’s some kind a revelation I got from Jesus, because it was a part of the way he used to show himself for me last year. 🤗
    I look forward to read it all. And God’s bless to you my brother. ❤️ May his mercy be with you in the work he gives you. 😉
    Sincerely with love and peace,
    Rune

    1. I can assure you that God is NOT going to torture a single person in Christianity’s godless hell. That is a demonic teaching stolen from the pagans to keep the religious controlled through fear. Eternal destruction is also not true although it would be a hell (pun intended) of a lot saner than barbecuing people in hell for all eternity. Gehenna symbolizes destruction of the carnal person that lives in all of us. God will destroy the sinful lust loving “internal person” that resides in all of humanity. The product will be the production of billions of spiritual sons and daughters birthed into the family of God. Read through my series and I’m sure it will answer many of your questions… Thanks for commenting and be well!
