MelissaJoy,
You have circled around the problem of hell. There are several New Testament references that confirm hell as an unquenchable fire into which bad people are thrown. Either the bible tells lies or hell is a fiery furnace of punishment.

Now, I reject god so according to the bible I will, when I die, end up screaming in burning agony not for a day, week or year, but forever. That is eternity, no end, infinite. With this concept you are at one with Islam.

Why do Abrahamic religions insist that god created hell for the likes of myself?
Please explain to me what I have done that deserves such inordinately horrific punishment?
It is far too easy to discuss the goody fluffy stuff. I want to know what the New Testament hell is all about.
