    Jesus says Eternal Life = Knowledge of the only true God & Jesus Christ whom He sent. Why? John 17:3

    (a) Why does Jesus in John 17:3 define "Eternal Life" as a specific form of the Knowledge of God? (b) And, why in related scripture is this contrasted with "Eternal Punishment", and "Eternal Destruction", and eternal perishing and eternal death? (c) And also, the Reprobates in Hell clearly have...

    Do the Jews believe in hell?

    I was talking with a guy, who considers himself jewish (parents from Israel and they adhere to judaism). As far as I can establish, he is not very active in his faith, although he does fast on the Day of Atonement, try to live a good life, etc. When I raised the issue of hell, he said that...

    'Heart' of the earth, a compartment in hades?

    Has anyone heard an interpretation that says that Jesus descended into hell or a compartment therein and utilized Matthew 12:40 to support it? They say that the expression "heart of the earth" cannot mean the grave because it is not the 'heart' of the earth and that the grave is too close to the...

    Is Abraham's bosom is a compartment of hades?

    I couldn't find any reformed articles that explained the combination or relations of the following terms: hades, Abraham's bosom and paradise, and their relationship to Jesus descending (or not) to hades. So this is how I have learned, but I doubt that it is correct: Hell (hades) has...

    Teachings of Jesus on Heaven and Hell

    I have searched the forum for this question and have found one unanswered post. But it was already closed. I have often heard people claiming that Jesus taught more about hell then he did on heaven. I was wondering if this is actually true. Has anyone looked into this further? This is...

    Hell is eternal separation from God?

    In a previous thread titled 2 questions about hell, it was mentioned that hell was unbearable because of eternal separation from God. However, how can those who hate God find hell unbearable because the very God they despise is not there? I would think that what makes hell hell is that God...

    Does the fear of hell or the threat of God's punishment motivate you to obey him?

    I am trying to distill what motivates the Christian to obey God. I run with a group of believers who emphasize (correctly) that the Lord is to be feared, and his precepts are to be obeyed. He is the Lord our God! They will then go on to say that it is God's power to condemn people to hell and...

    Question about Heaven and Hell

    It seems to me that a lot of us take the descriptions of Heaven to be symbolic (there won't actually be streets of gold) but the descriptions of Hell to be literal (there will be flames). I'm just curious as to why this is? Why couldn't the descriptions of Hell also be symbolic? Just to...
