We have a gentlemen in our church who keeps bringing up Mark 9:44, where it says "Where their worm dieth not". This brother believes that when a lost person dies, that they will actually turn into a worm, and burn in hell. I know where he gets this teaching and many others like it, but I for some reason have a hard time swallowing this teaching. Can anyone shed some light on what "their worm" means? Everyone that I have spoken to does not believe that the lost will actually turn into worms, but they cant refute this brothers interpretation either. The few commentaries I have dont say much about it. Any input would be helpful.
