There is a lot of confusion regarding the temporal nature of hell.

Hell is eternal, but that doesn't indicate that (should an individual descend into it) that they are "locked" in forever and ever and ever.

It can be understood with a simple analogy.

A prison stands as a fixed component of a penal system. If an inmate is accused, tried and sentenced/convicted, they enter the prison for a period of time until their debt to society is paid in full, according to his/her misconduct.

Similarly, lower regions of existence stand as fixed "eternal" stations of recompense - but the souls entering these regions do not stay there for eternity - this is absurd.

However, should a soul continue to make the same mistake(s) over and over, he/she could lock themselves into the lower regions indefinitely until he/she learns from their mistakes and modifies their behavior.

As such "hell" (or lower regions) are eternal, but souls only spend their own respective allotted time there.

A bit like being shoved into an oven really isn't it?
If you want something to bake gently, you put it on the lower shelf.
For a more moderate heat, you use the middle shelf.
To burn the buggery out of a pizza, you whack it on the top shelf.

Only by those afraid of it.

Where would you descend from and to, imagination?

Unrelated, prison is not the hell of the bible in any way. Failed analogy.

Lower regions of what? Imagination?

Provide evidence for the existence of a soul.

Hell = Fairy tale.
Lower regions = Imagination
Soul = Fantasy

Hell problem solved.
Be afraid bwuahahahahahahahaha

____________________________________________

THECHRISTWITHIN,

We thank you again for proving that DEBATE.ORG Religion forum has some of the most DUMBFOUNDED and IGNORANT Agnostics on the internet!!! LOL

You provide such mind-numbing wishful thinking, without a shred of proof that your insidious claims are true, where the reader of your tripe has to step back and wonder what medications you are on, or in fact, wondering in what mental disorder you have!

Your simple analogy, although comical and entertaining to the equally inept Agnostics, does not hold water when it is determined what Jesus states about HELL as shown in the verse below, you ignorant blatant AGNOSTIC FOOL!

"Then they will go away to ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, but the righteous to eternal life." (Matthew 25:46) There is absolutely NO SECOND CHANCES with the term ETERNAL PUNISHMENT! Are you calling Jesus a LIAR again?!

Your inept comedic spin has a SOUL making the same mistakes over and over, and you proffer that they can learn from their mistakes, NOT, you IGNORANT AGNOSTIC because the mythical Jesus disagrees!

"If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left," (Hebrews 10:26)

.
THECHRISTWITHIN, let me make a meaningful suggestion that will save you from any further embarrassment, okay? By your continued blatant and embarrassing ignorance and stupidity upon this forum, you would be better off on a "Children"s Religion Forum!" Why don"t you try the one listed below:

http://www.forumchristian.org...

Be sure to report back from time to time and let us know if you need help with the kids easily OWNING you as well! LOL

It appears you have given considerable thought to what hell is. Reality must be sinking in.

I think that is the Catholic version. In catholicism souls have to pass through 'Purgatory', which means a place where souls are 'purged' of their sins, particularly by the cleansing action of fire. How long your soul spends in Purgatory depends on how tarnised your soul is to begin, but everyone goes to heaven eventually.

Most versions of Protestantism prefer the permanent option - there is no intermediate purgatory - bad people go straight to hell and stay there.
