PROTESTANT HEAVEN AND TORMENT HELL STILL BEING TAUGHT.
I ran across a TV show - 700 Huntley Street - with an old Pat Robinson; he was interviewing a middle age lady who tried to commit suicide when she was 15.
There was a divorce with her Mom and Dad when she was young; she blamed herself, she became depressed, and by age 15 was so mixed up, with no joy in life, she wanted to end her mental torment and pain.
She put the gun to her head but heard a small voice saying, "No" and telling her how she would look if she survived. She decided to put the gun to her heart. She said she expected to die. She did not. She went to a place of screaming pain, more emotionally.
She went on to say her "soul" left her body when in terrible agony from the gun shot. She claimed she went to "hell" - an immense sea of people all screaming in agony, an eternal place, they had no hope. Then she claims she saw the "gulf" of blackness between hell and heaven. She saw the joy and blessedness of heaven; people in eternal happiness interacting with each other, but she was not allowed to visit or interact.
She claimed this was all like the Bible teaches; a painful emotional hell [not physical so much as mental]. And the joy of all those humans in heaven.
She was rushed to the emergency of the hospital - her soul came back to her and she physically lived. She did not accept Christ as personal Savior immediately, but did so over a few years.
The whole portrayal was to try and prove the Bible teaches a painful emotional eternal hell, and of course a blissful joyous heaven for the good Christians upon death.
NOW THE BIBLE TEACHES NO SUCH THING AS AN EVER BURNING HELL, OR A HELL WITH SCREAMING MENTAL TORTURE FOR ETERNITY.
YES THE BIBLE DOES TEACH THE CHRISTIAN RIGHTEOUS WILL BE IN ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD THE FATHER AND CHRIST JESUS - BUT NOT AT DEATH, BUT FROM A RESURRECTION TO GLORY AND ETERNAL LIFE, WHEN JESUS RETURNS TO EARTH.
THE TRUTH ABOUT HELL AND THE RESURRECTION/S IS FULLY EXPOUNDED ON THIS WEBSITE.
THE TRUH ABOUR DEATH AND WHAT THEN, IS A FULL IN-DEPTH STUDY ON THE SUBJECT - CALLED "DEATH - THEN WHAT?" - FROM THE BIBLE!
THERE ARE MANY OTHER STUDIES ANSWERING ALL THE COMMON ARGUMENTS, LIKE "LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN" AND OTHER ARGUMENTS PUT FORTH BY THE CATHOLICS AND PROTESTANTS, TO HOLD TO THEIR CENTURIES LONG THEOLOGY.
SOME OF WHAT SHE TAUGHT CAN BE ANSWERED ON A HUMAN SCALE.....THE MIND AT SUCH TIMES [THINGS FROM ALLOWED INTO THE MIND OVER YEARS, SUCH IDEAS OF THE HERE AFTER.....THE MIND IS A MASTERFUL ORGAN THAT CAN STORE MANY MANY KINDS OF THING, AND ONLY COME OUT, OR IS BROUGHT UP WHEN THE SITUATION WARRANTS IT.
UNDER THE YOUNG LADIES NEAR DEATH SITUATION, MANY THINGS ON THE BACK SHELF - IDEAS AND TEACHING SHE MAY HAVE HEARD, CAN COME BACK INTO THE FAST LANE OF THE MIND - A POSSIBLE PHYSICAL EXPLANATION.
IN HER SITUATION THERE IS TIME FOR DEMONS TO JOYFULLY GO TO WORK!!
THEY CAN HAVE THE POWER TO BRING INO YOUR MIND ALL THE THING THIS LADY HEARD AND SAW......WHY?
SIMPLY TO PERPETUATE TO CATHOLIC AND PROTESTANT, AND NEW ONES COMING TO THE "CHRISTIAN FAITH" AND TO CONVINCE THEM THERE IS A HELL OF UN-COUNTABLE NUMERS - SUFFERING IN VERY REAL PAIN OF EMOTIONS OR PHYSICAL AND SOMETIMES BOTH.
HEAVEN IS GIVEN AS REACHING THERE IF A "GOOD" CHRISTIAN, BEING THERE UPON DEATH.
BOTH IDEAS ARE TOTALLY WRONG; A VERY BAD THEOLOGY SET AGAINST THE CORRECT THEOLOGY OF GOD FOUND IN THE BIBLE.
MANY STUDIES ON THIS SITE WILL GIVE YOU THE REAL TRUTH OF THE MATTER.
WHY DO THE DEMONIC FORCES DO THIS, OR HELP DO THIS..... LOOKING SO GOOD, BY SURFACE WORDS? THIS LADY WAS VERY SINCERE; REALLY BELIEVED WHAT SHE WAS SAYING, BELIEVING IT WAS ALL FROM GOD, BELIEVING WHAT SHE SAID SHE EXPERIENCED WAS WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES; OH YES SINCERE INDEED, BUT SINCERELY WRONG!!
WELL THE DEMONS ARE EVER DECEIVING; BUSY DOING ANYTHING TO KEEP FALSE DOCTRINE MOVING AROUND LIKE A CONTINUOUS BICYCLE WHEEL ON A 7 DAY RACE.
SATAN CAN PERFORM, WHAT TO US WE WOULD CALL A MIRACLE. GOD ALLOWS IT!
WHY? VERY SIMPLE; THEY AND OTHERS THEN GET THE "CHRIST EXPERIENCE" - THEY PASS IT ON TO OTHERS, WHO BECOME SO-CALLED "SAVED" AND THE WHEEL KEEPS TURNING.
THEY BELIEVE A LIE, FALSE TEACHING, AND SATAN HAS 100s OF WAYS TO GET YOU DECEIVED.
JESUS SAID THAT BEFORE HE CAME AGAIN.... DECEPTION WOULD BE SO STRONG, EVEN WHILE CLAIMING HE [JESUS] WAS THE CHRIST; COMING IN HIS NAME SAYING HE WAS THE CHRIST - NOT THAT THEY WERE THE CHRIST BUT THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH AND THE CHRIST [MAT.24]. THEY WOULD DECEIVE SO MANY, THAT "IF" IT WAS POSSIBLE EVEN THE VERY ELECT WOULD BE DECEIVED [MAT.24].
BUT THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE!
THOSE STUDYING DILIGENTLY WITH THE HELP OF STRONG'S CONCORDANCE OF THE BIBLE; NAVE'S TOPICAL BIBLE; AND FROM THIS WEBSITE; WITH A DESIRE AND LOVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH, WILL FIND IT.
THOSE WITH THE ATTITUDE OF HUNGERING AND THIRSTING FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL FIND IT - JESUS PROMISED.
IT WOULD STILL SEEM TO BE THAT THE RESTORATION OF THE TRUTH ON HEAVEN AND HELL, DEATH AND THEN WHAT, NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES, DO STILL NEED TO BE RESTORED !
