Hello, I just wrote an article. And it’s very important to me that it be biblically accurate so I wanted everyone to take a look at it and let me know if I made a mistake in anything I said. I realize any discussion has multiple angles you could go from but in this case, all I want to know is if I said something that was not supported with scripture. Below are a few things I found to be helpful when offering correction 1. Please steer clear of personal remarks. Saying things like, “You’re deceived.” Or, “You’re a false teacher.” Won’t accomplish anything. There are various forms of these comments, but they’re easily spotted because they’re always addressed toward the person, rather than the subject at hand. 2. Please be specific. “You interpreted that wrong.” Or “You have a flawed reasoning here.” Are examples of vague generalities. If you say things like this, but don’t give an example, there is no way for me to tell what you’re referring to-thus how will I correct it? The best way I have seen to do is this is to quote what I said and then show how I was wrong. 3. I’m interested in being able to read it in my own Bible. I understand people can say, “What it means here is . . .” Or “What is being implied by the context is . . .” But these explanations requires me to put faith in what you say about it rather than what it says by itself. So instead, I prefer to read it straight from the Bible. 4. PLEASE BE HONEST- If you don’t know, just say, “I don’t know.” If all you have is an opinion on it, just say “I could only give you my opinion, but I don’t have any scripture that actually say this . . .” That way I at least know where you’re coming from. And I won’t be left wondering if you had a real point to make, or if you were just giving your opinion. Let me thank everyone for their participation ahead of time. I really do appreciate it. ------------------------------------------- In Acts 2:31 we get a distinct picture of where Jesus’ Soul was . . . 25: For David speaks concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27: Because you will not leave my soul in hell, neither will you allow your Holy One to see corruption. 28: You have made known to me the ways of life; you shall make me full of joy with your countenance. 29: Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30: Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31: He seeing this before spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. Now, in this passage, Peter is speaking concerning the resurrection of Christ, but makes a striking statement about where Jesus’ Soul was until He had been risen from the dead. It was in hell. Consequently, as Peter points out, it was not left there, but we will talk more about this aspect later on. What I want you to see is where Jesus was for those 3 days and 3 nights. Now I want to be specific about where Jesus went. Some translations will say Hades instead of Hell. Which is fine. But if we can find an actual biblical description of Hell, or Hades, we can better understand where it was that Jesus went. We find this description from the lips of Jesus Himself. 19: There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21: And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22: And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23: And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24: And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. (Lk 16) Here we have a description of Hell. Verse 23 shows us that the rich man went to hell. He was tormented by flames. The word, Hell that is used in this story is the same Greek word that is used in Acts 2:31 in reference to where Christ went. This means that our Lord went to the place of torment and flames.
