no, the people suffering in Hell after that were servants of the Devil in their time on Earth, and so get to stay with him for eternity. A fitting punishment for their evils. Those who serve the darkness in this realm, will certainly serve it in the next don't you agree?
No. Many people believe so, but I don't. Any payment for "sins" should be in balance for the sins, and merely doing something outside of "normal" isn't a sin. Harming other people for no reason but your own desire to do so is wrong, and in that sense a "sin".
If you want to believe they are, then yes. As a matter or fact, if you want to believe that, then believe that not all of those souls belonged to sinners. Some people have no idea about a God so they have to burn too. Others chose to believe something else, so they burn as well. In other words. NO, no souls are burning anywhere. That comment however will start a pretty large comment train though.
Yup. My dad's seen people's souls go to hell before. Once in a hospital room where a woman was asleep. When she woke up, she had a horrified look on her face and was sweating. "IT'S HOOOOOOT!" she said. She puked literally halfway across the room and then died. Another time, and older lady was in the middle of church. All of a sudden, she started shouting, "MY LEGS ARE BURNING!" and died.
it depends on your belief system. evil is mans creation. if you believe you go to hell when you sin then that could become your reality. there is also the belief of working through your karma. living on this earth, we can create or alleviate our own personal hell.
First of all, according to the Bible, we are all sinners (Romans 5:12). So does that mean that when we die we will be suffering because of our sins? Again, the Bible answers NO. (Romans 6:7) says "For he who has died has been acquitted from his sin" In regards to death, the Bible says at (Ecclesiastes 9:5) that the dead are conscious of nothing at all. When you die the bible describes it like a dreamlike state. In fact at (John 11:11), Jesus said in regards to his friend Lazarus who had died, "Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep." Last thought on this question, the Bible teaches us that God's predominant quality is love (1John 4:8). Because God is love, does it make sense that he would send a sinful person to a place of torment to suffer for all eternally? If so, why would God send his most precious son to sinful mankind as a ransom sacrifice, so that by exercising faith in his son Jesus, we may gain everlasting life? (John 3:16)

Hi Roosevelt, from the other questions you have asked, I gather that you are a believer, so I am going to answer with that in mind, otherwise it would probably be overkill. Revelation 20, the Bible says that at the end of the 1,000 year Kingdom, Satan will be let loose for a bit, because those born in the Kingdom must make a free will choice for Christ, too. And it's hard to believe, but Satan will raise up an army that God will destroy...Now verse 10, " And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet ARE, and shall be tormented day and night FOR EVER AND EVER". (Roosevelt, I think this says that at that point in time- there's only 2 people there in the lake of fire, the Antichrist and the false prophet, and 1,000 years later, comes Satan...) Then, verse 11-13 talks about the great white throne judgement of all unbelievers throughout history...verse 14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.." (these are Spirits, I think). Now verse 15 "and whoso ever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (The Antichrist and the false prophet were humans that will be tormented day and night until the 1,000year Kingdom is finished. Then after the 1,000 years, satan gets thrown in next to be tormented FOR EVER AND EVER, and after the judgement of all unbelievers, they too will be thrown in the lake of fire to be tormented day and night FOR EVER AND EVER. These are hard verses, but it's in the Book, and we have to teach it...thanks for your question. Bye!
I believe that there is hell on Earth. There are real Demons on earth. If u betray God these demons will torment u, mentally, physically and emotionally. This I believe! They were fallen Angels at one time and betrayed God so he cast them to Earth. They love to torment Gods children. But they can't torment u if u are living a God life style. God is always w u, but until u truly call on him and do his ways, he can't help u. And since there is a hell on Earth I believe there is a eternal Hell also.
