The Truth And Halloween

Recommended Posts

The word “hell” derives from European mythology, but the place that is called hell in English is “Gehenna” in the Hebrew texts, place of the dead and a part of “sheol” where the unredeemable souls are punished for eternity. It is probable that the word “hell” is a corruption of the word “sheol” or maybe just to make it relevant to the people who were being shown The Good News.

The whole fire and torture stuff was just in the New Testament though, as far as I am aware.

Ask the EvilGoblin!

I am a bit slow today, LDV, so can you clarify just what question you would like me to provide an answer to?

Where Hell comes from.

I think it has its' origins in Revelation but that is a book written in code and is very difficult to properly interpret. Our classic idea of Hell is from the Medieval Church, where it was useful in keeping the masses in line. Personally, I don't believe in Heaven or Hell, other than as states of psychological existence in this life.

Wrong. Look up "sheol" and what it comprises of. Especially Gehenna.

I did - in the most appropiate place I could - and it doesn't really confirm your beliefs.

Look further. Especially look into sources relating to gehenna, its place in sheol, and its purpose.

Well if you wish to be practical then it is better to go to heaven as it is cooler.

The temperature of heaven can be rather accurately computed. Our authority is the Bible, Isaiah 30:26 reads

"Moreover, the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold as the light of seven days."Thus, heaven receives from the moon as much radiation as the earth does from the sun, and in addition seven times seven (forty nine) times as much as the earth does from the sun, or fifty times in all. The light we receive from the moon is one ten-thousandth of the light we receive from the sun, so we can ignore that. With these data we can compute the temperature of heaven: The radiation falling on heaven will heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is just equal to the heat received by radiation. In other words, heaven loses fifty times as much heat as the earth by radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann fourth power law for radiation (H/E)4 = 50 here E is the absolute temperature of the earth, 300°K (273+27). This gives H the absolute temperature of heaven, as 798° absolute (525°C).

 

The exact temperature of hell cannot be computed but it must be less than 444.6°C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulfur changes from a liquid to a gas. Revelations 21:8 reads

" But the fearful and unbelieving... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone."

 

Now if we consider that a lake of molten brimstone [sulphur] means that its temperature must be at or below the boiling point, which is 444.6°C. (Above that point, it would be a vapor, not a lake.)

 

We have then, temperature of heaven, 525°C (977°F). Temperature of hell, less than 445°F). Therefore heaven is hotter than hell. So stck your heaven hell is officially cooler.
