    The issue is the separation caused by sin.

    I think Matt. 10;15 answers the OP question completely. Hell won't be fun for anyone, but some will suffer more than others, depending on their sin. Those among US who will end up there are in for a horrible eternity, as we've been told all that God has made available for man to know about Jesus, but some will reject Him anyway by not coming to Him in repentance & belief, calling on Him by name for His forgiveness of one's sins & in submission. That's why He said it'd be less-tolerable for Capernaum, which heard & saw some of His miracles.

    I hope EVERYONE who reads and/or posts here is, or will be, saved.

    There are degrees of punishment for sin. He who knew little will be beaten with fewer stripes, etc.

    “But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.” Matthew 11:22–24 (KJV 1900)

    Jesus answered him, “You would have no authority over Me at all, if it had not been given to you from above; for this reason the one who handed Me over to you has the greater sin[John 19:11].

    Sin is sin and there is no excuse for it and looking back on my life I've had and if the Lord counted all my sins against me and was not forgiving when I pray and repent, I would be doing the fire dance... I cannot fathom one in hell in torment turning to another one and saying, what are you here for?... I killed man is cold blood!:mad:... And you?... I stole a candy bar from Wal-Mart, I really wanted to put it back... But I ate it!:eek:... I do believe that the Lord paid for ALL my sins, even the candy bar I can remember at this time, if I stole it, ate it. or not?... But I know for sure I NEVER robbed a bank!... But the Lords knows all about me and I pray Gods loving mercy, will outweigh my sinful stupidity... Brother Glen:Notworthy

    I'm as rotten as it gets when it comes to indulging in a sinful life. And it has always bothered me that God cannot forget even though he forgives. So my favorite verse is is “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18 (KJV 1900)

    I rarely sin outwardly since experiencing the New Birth. But the flesh rages against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh all day long. And I thank the Lord for crucifying my flesh daily.

    Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

    7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

    7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

    7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

    7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

    7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

    7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

    7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

    7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

    7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

    7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

    7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

    Dave... If we get to Heaven, it won't be to any goodness we've done but what the Lord did for us!... Brother Glen:)

    That is only referenced in regard to prayer under the Law, Isaiah 59:2. Do you have any Scripture as to the lost being in the eternal Hell fire separated from God?

    Revelation 14:10-11, ". . . shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, . . ." But does that mean God the Father of the Lamb is not there?

    No new thing under the sun. Read Paul in Romans 7 and find solace.

    Oops! Tyndale beat me to it. Sorry Brother Glenn.

    That's OK Kentucky a good repeat is encouraged... Brother Glen:Thumbsup

    1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

    Btw... This is to be saved from error!

    Was that in bold, paid, by the blood of Christ?

    I think you are going the long way around the barn. The blood of Christ (His substitutionary sacrifice as the Lamb of God) provided the means to being united to God. When God credits the faith of a lost (and separated from God) sinner, He places them into Christ, where they are made alive "together with Christ." Ephesians 2:5.

    I kind of was thinking Rom 5:9,10

    A healed separation, resulting salvation.

    For the wages of the sin, death; but the gift of God, eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Maybe we should ask,

    Are there degrees of eternal life?

    Just a thought.

    The problem with this view is that the blood of Christ united us, the atoned for, with God. To say something else, faith or works unites us, is to say his blood didn't pay for any sin.

    I think your view is outside of orthodoxy. The blood does not unite us, God does when He (1) gave, (2) called, (3) baptized, and (4) transferred the chosen into Christ.

    No need to claim all these specific actions to place (the sanctifying work of the Spirit) the lost into Christ are not in scripture.

    I think you are co-mingling two different actions of God. One, He puts those chosen for salvation into Christ spiritually. Then (two) those placed into Christ undergo the washing of regeneration and the circumcision of Christ when the body (or consequence) of sin is removed by the blood of the Lamb.

    I have seen several churches claim that all sins are not the same.
    But, I believe they are the same to a point given they all separate us from God. Below, doesn’t specify which sin is greater/lesser than another. Just that “sin” leads to death.
    Some will suffer different degrees of punishment in hell though.

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)
    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
