I believe in gehenna (hell) too! I believe gehenna consumes and destroys. So what I mean in the title of this blog is "do you believe in the traditionalist misuse and misinterpretation of gehenna, namely as a fire that never ever consumes?" This is my laziest shortest blog entry ever.
Answer me these 5 kindergarten questions (scriptures are even there to help out):
1. In the bible, does unquenchable fire preserve or consume? (Ezekial 20:47, Amos 5:6, Matthew 3:12)
2. In the bible, do worms that don't die preserve souls or consume corpses? (Isaiah 66:24)
3. In the bible, does the lake of fire perform a different function for death than it does the wicked, which are both thrown there in the same passage? (1 Corinthians 15:26, Revelation 20:14)
4 .In the bible, is eternal fire said to reduce to ashes or to infinitely preserve? (Jude 1:7, 2 Peter 2:6)
5. In the bible, are the wicked said to become ashes or to never be reduced to ashes? (Malachi 4:3)
Thanks and God bless!
