To be continued... I would like this topic to be discuss or debate with friendly, and respect eash other, no attack, criticize, blunt, slander words at each other. Let's sticky on God's Word with the truths and sound doctrine. av1611jim said: recently at the topic -'Baptist Purgatory' at Fundamental Baptist forum. Amen. Right. But, yet you agree with Faust and others teaching that a Christian shall cast into the hell for a temporary time, as they citied or quote from Matt. 25:30, etc. They have problems with Matt. 7:21-23; Matt. 25:30, 41, etc. These do not saying that a person shall be released out of the everlasting fire beyond the judgement day. Because Matt. 7:21-23; 25:14-30; 31-46, all of these are speak of great white throne, the only one future judgement day at Christ's coming, no other else. No way you can prove them are speak of temporary, because Christ never saying it. Your logical of thse are flaw and fallacy. Also, Rev. 20:2-7 speak of 'a thousand years', it does not taking into literally excatly of how long it will be last. But it is a figurative meaning of very long period that the dead saints are currently reign with Christ in the heaven since from Pentacost to now, it already been almost 2,000 years, and probably it will be continue for the next another 1,000 years till around 3000 A.D. or 4000 A.D. Rev. 20:11-15 telling us, hell shall be cast into the lake of fire. Hell is a reserved place for unbelievers, disobey servants, await for the coming great white throne, also, all people who are already in hell, because their names are not find written in the book of fire, all of them WILL be cast into the lake of fire, is an everlasting punishment, not a temporary punishment. period. That's simple and plain. In Christ Rev. 22:20 -Amen!
