Shouldn't we pray for and be kind to evolutionists when so many scientists don't believe in evolution ?
God calls us to reveal Christlikeness of character to everyone. This will do more to bring honor to God than harsh words and criticism. Even if all the scientists in the world renounced evolution and embraced God, unbelievers would find another reason to doubt unless the love of God had won their hearts. Hundreds of scientists do not believe in "Darwin's theory of evolution" and many more believe in the Creator.

Can anyone prove from the Bible that those who reject Christ will burn for trillions of centuries in hell fire
This is a straight question. Either this is a Bible teaching with verses that prove it or this is not a teaching from the Bible. Not an opinion. Prove it.
Only 54 verses mention hell in the Bible. None of them indicate an eternity of torment in flames of fire. No where in the Bible are people made immortal so they can live forever in pain. Everlasting life in heaven or hell is not promised to those who reject the love of God. Immortality is not promised to those who prefer to have their own way and hold on to an unChristlike character. It is misrepresentation of God’s character to suggest that He will sentence people, even the wicked, to an eternity of burning. No verse in the Bible suggests that this will happen.
The punishment of those who are lost will result in the end of their existence forever. No eternal life with eternal punishing. No eternal suffering. It is a false teaching that has done a lot of damage.
Jesus used the greek word Gehenna for hell in the Bible and Gehenna was an actual place of burning right outside Jerusalem where all the garbage of the city and even dead bodies ware burned continually. If anything fell outside of the flames, worms and maggots quickly consumed it. “worm dieth not” The word Gehenna was used figuratively to illustrate the punishment of those whose life choices have unprepared them for heaven.15 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
Can anyone prove from the Bible that those who reject Christ will burn for billions of years in hell fire ?
There are only 54 verses that mention hell in the Bible. It is a misrepresentation of God's character to suggest that He will sentence people, even the wicked, to an eternity of burning. No verse suggests that this will happen. There will be punishment but no eternal suffering. It is a false teaching that has done a lot of damage.7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
Is hostility, cynicism and an uncharitable tone a true reflection of those who reject God and the Bible ?
I can't seem to find anyone who rejects God and the Bible that is willing to calmly and clearly explain why they believe what they believe without name calling or sarcasm. None who have not misunderstood something about God or the Bible.11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
Why do people believe the bad things and contradictions in the Bible and reject the verses that explain ?
People believe that the Bible is full of error and contradictions but reject the verses in the Bible that explain these apparent errors and contradictions. Why ? Is there something in human nature opposed to the principles of the Bible ?22 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
