Accepting biblical truth is the topic, today, and there is more on why GOD is concerned for humankind. The “Yahoo! Answers“ writer using ID “?” (Level 3 with 2,140 points, a member since August 17, 2012) posted the following:

How am I supposed to accept this in the Bible?

The Bible says that God eternally punishes those who do not believe him.*
Some will say, “no, it’s the devil punishing, not God. “

However, that is untrue.

In Revelations, it clearly states that God will destroy Hell.**

Yet, even after he destroys Hell, he just throws it and everyone in it into another place called the Lake of Fire.***

When I first heard this, I thought that maybe the Lake of Fire was like a place where it destroys your soul, because it’s the “second death,” therefor, you would be at peace and not in torment anymore.
But if you actually read the whole chapter, the Lake of Fire is no different from Hell. It is, again, a place of eternal torment and punishment.****


I cannot understand how God, not Satan, because God has also destroyed Satan at this point, would willingly punish people eternally simply for not believing in him.
That’s just screwed up I can find no excuse for it.
* = “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” – Matthew 25:46

** = “And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” – Revelations 20:14

*** = “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” – revelations 20:15

**** = “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” – Revelation 20:10

Additional Details

>”truly Hell is too good for those who have done such an abomination and possess such attitudes that you are expressing.”

So saying that we should not eternally torture people who may have never even heard the gospel in the first place and may have lived really good lives is an “abomination”?

THE BATTLE AXE: Why Would GOD Worry About Us? (04/16/2013)—(5.) Mankind remains an aspect of full divine person, and will never be completely cast away and rejected by GOD. The imparted, indwelling Spirit from GOD imparts life, person, and other aspects of being. This is also demonstrated through the appearance of GOD in human flesh as Jesus of Nazareth. See Luke 24: 36-48, Acts 1: 6-11 and Ephesians 5: 30, KJV. (6.) Despite the ministry of GOD upon the earth and from the heavens, mankind continues to be unpredictable and unresponsive to the concessions, and provisions for reconciliation. Many continue to scorn divine provisions, including compassion, forgiveness, longsuffering and mercy. See again Deuteronomy 31: 24-29, 2nd Chronicles 24: 17-20, Isaiah 48: 1-11, Zechariah 7: 8-14 and Acts 7: 51, KJV.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. (Matthew 21: 33-44, King James Version)

You (and all other created beings and living creatures) are supposed to accept it as a demonstration of the righteousness of GOD, by putting away your exaggerated ideas of your own importance, and acknowledging the Divine Person with humility and respect. You must challenge your apparent assumption that there is innocence for all others (like your own), such that none are now, or ever will be, deserving of severe punishment and termination of their existence. Although you may be a man of peace, had you, today, an enemy repeatedly attacking your family and home behind your back, contrary to all law enforcement efforts, deceiving, lying, violating every agreement from meetings to reason together, etc., etc., etc. you might well seek to save the lives of loved ones by trying to physically end all threat, and “removing the possibility for further dispute.”

It is the work of sin to deny, destroy and undo divine law, the integrity of created beings and living creatures, and the existence of Divine Person. Thus, it is also the work of the Creator to eliminate sin, recover all that have been tainted by sin, and establish the truth that sin will never rise again within the universe of GOD. Sacred operations on a divine scale must come into view. Included are birth, death, Incarnation, impartial yet thorough judgment, rebirth, repentance, resurrection, and sanctification.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, through the ministry of Jesus Christ, believers are granted a “divine point of view,” so to speak, with insights regarding sacred purposes. The Scriptures function the same way, granting believers sacred insights from thousands of human lives over the course of thousands of human events. Accepting GOD’s view becomes much easier once “born again” from divine DNA, that is, after having received his Holy Spirit. Ones anger on behalf of mankind, and their voice as spokesperson, prophet, and Champion of Compassion for humanity then takes on its correct weight, and eternal value.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
