        What really is Hell?
okay, I know that hell is a place that is not Godly like, but does hell really have fire in it literly? or is that just an analogie? and is hell just a place far away from God, or can you still get Gods help in hell?

Hell is the absence of everything Godly. Therefore, God would be absent from it. I'm not sure, however, what it would be like, exactly. But I'm positive that nothing one would experience in Hell would be good. And the bible has alot of analogies in it, so I think that there wont literally be flames there.

Also i believe that the "flames" term is used metaphorically in the bible.. Then again, hell is probably different for everyone..

I have no bible quotes to give you, but i have heard some televesion shows talking about near death experiences. Some people have said they have just been in a dark void.... Mabye that would be hell, but i wouldnt try to figure out what hell is... all i know is its not where i wanna go :

Hell is eternal separation from God. So, no, you cannot get help from God in Hell. Going to Hell is as a result of a conscouis decision to not accept God and his truth. I think fire is a symbol. Just like fire consumes something, in hell you would be consumed by your own personal torments as the result of your sins, since in eternal separation from God, you are not forgiven. That is why Christ is the solution. He pays for our sins so that fire doesn't consume us and we can truly know God and his truths.

Clatonwilson, I disagree with you politely and here is my reasoning... [Psalms 139:8] is refering you can not escape God's hand and although you may be going through rough times... God's way will prevail... remember, David was speaking as fleeing the wrath of Saul, God's annointed, (although Saul rebelled) and must have felt God was pursuing him at the same time...

Opinion not fact...

Read these, maybe they will help [Matthew 5:22-30, 10:28,18:9,23:33-43,Luke12:5&16:23]. These are just the beginning. God Bless

I don't believe the fire refered to is a physical fire, but a spiritual fire. No doubt, there will be a fire [Luke 16:24], [Revelation 19:20], [Mark 9:43-48]. In [Luke 16], it's described as a great gulf, they could still talk to each other though, but that was Abraham's bosom. Where is Hell? Don't remember if I ever found that. As for getting God's help in Hell, Yes. [Psalm 139:8]. Hell is different from the Lake of fire, in the lake of fire, you will suffer and be tormented for ever. God's wrath abides there. His wrath being the absense of His love. No, God can not help you there. Seek the Lord to never go there.

Unfortunately, Hell is a reality and it is a REAL place. My pastor said during a sermon one time that once you get into Hell that's God name is never spoken again. No one can fully explain what Hell is like. Hopefully more and more people will never find out what it's like. All I know is that Hell is a place far away from God and His great love, and any happiness, and that it would never be worth going to. All we have to do is keep our eyes focused on God and live for Him and fortunately we'll be in the greatest place ever...HEAVEN. May the Lord be with you always! God Bless!!
