      I gather your comment was a joke.....divorce can be bad and I hope doing so resolves all issues for yourself and her. It in no way is a picnic......lean on family/friends and your Minister for support.

  • Hell is in the US and so never been there. However, one would assume it is possible to flee from there.

    Earth is hell if you turn your back on God and His Son.

    There are three different concepts that are translated "Hell" in various Bibles, which has caused a lot of confusion.

    Sheol (in Greek Haides) is the common Grave of humankind. As Jesus himself demonstrated, one can get resurrected from the grave. John 5:28-29, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5

    Gehenna (which Jesus referred to in his sermon on the mount) is the second death, eternal death that is due to unrepentant sin, which is mentioned in Revelation 20:13-15 and Revelation 21:8.

    Tartarus is the prison of the angels who sinned in Noah's day 2 Peter 2:4

    Information on how hell was redefined from pagan teachings:

    Various nominal Christian groups believe in the Greek version of hell. The Bible is not consistent with those ideas.

    The Bible says that the wages sin pays is death. Jesus spoke of Gehenna, which is eternal death, which many Bibles erroneously translate as hellfire.

    "Hell" is a word used in the King James Version (as well as in the Catholic Douay Version and most older translations) to translate the Hebrew she'ohl' and the Greek hai'des. In the King James Version the word “hell” is rendered from she'ohl' 31 times and from hai'des 10 times. This version is not consistent, however, since she'ohl' is also translated 31 times “grave” and 3 times “pit.” In the Catholic Douay Version she'ohl' is rendered “hell” 64 times, “pit” once, and “death” once.

    But the original English word "hell" had nothing to do with eternal torment.

    It is, in fact, because of the way that the word “hell” is understood today that it is such an unsatisfactory translation of these original Bible words.

    Webster’s Third New International Dictionary, unabridged, under “Hell” says: “fr[om] . . . helan to conceal.” The word “hell” thus originally conveyed no thought of heat or torment but simply of a ‘covered over or concealed place.’

    In the old English dialect the expression “helling potatoes” meant, not to roast them, but simply to place the potatoes in the ground or in a cellar.

    The meaning given today to the word “hell” is that portrayed in Dante’s Divine Comedy and Milton’s Paradise Lost, which meaning is completely foreign to the original definition of the word. The idea of a “hell” of fiery torment, however, dates back long before Dante or Milton.

    The Grolier Universal Encyclopedia (1971, Vol. 9, p. 205) under “Hell” says: “Hindus and Buddhists regard hell as a place of spiritual cleansing and final restoration. Islamic tradition considers it as a place of everlasting punishment.” The idea of suffering after death is found among the pagan religious teachings of ancient peoples in Babylon and Egypt. Babylonian and Assyrian beliefs depicted the “nether world . . . as a place full of horrors, . . . presided over by gods and demons of great strength and fierceness.”

    Although ancient Egyptian religious texts do not teach that the burning of any individual victim would go on forever, they do portray the “Other World” as featuring “pits of fire” for “the damned.”?—The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria, by Morris Jastrow, Jr., 1898, p. 581; The Book of the Dead, with introduction by E. Wallis Budge, 1960, pp. 135, 144, 149, 151, 153, 161, 200.

    --->>>To directly answer your question, the punishment for sin is the same as in the Garden of Eden. DEATH. Genesis 2:16-17 Faith in Jesus and repentance with changing our lives in harmony with his teachings of truth is the way to eternal life.

    John 3:16

    16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed (or, perish) but have everlasting life."

      There is no such thing as Purgatory. The Bible is clear that if our sins aren't forgiven, we spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.

    Not on our own. But Jesus shall eventually redeem us from death and from hell. See Rev. 20:12-14. Death and hell must both be emptied and destroyed so that the resurrections and final judgment can take place. Hell is never forever. There is only finite punishment for finite sin. God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact.

      The bible uses the same term eternal when describing both heaven and hell.....Just another of the many reasons why LDS/Mormons are a non-Christian false cult.

    We can all escape hell by the simple fact that it doesn't exist.
