IN JEREMIAH 32:35: HE SAYS BURNING THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN “THE FIRE OF MOLECH” was an “abomination” and caused Judah “TO SIN”; “And they built the high place of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, TO CAUSE THEIR SONS AND THEIR DAUGHTERS TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE UNTO MOLOCH; WHICH I COMMANDED THEM NOT, NEITHER CAME IT INTO MY MIND, THAT THEY SHOULD DO THIS ABOMINATION, TO CAUSE JUDAH TO SIN.” (Jeremiah 32:35)

These Scriptures and many other verses give the lie to the hell of the dark ages, which is taught by so many priests and ministers today. HELL IS NOT A PLACE OF ETERNAL TORTURE where the damned scream in pain for eternity; it is a place of silence, of rest, a place where its occupants know nothing, a place where righteous Job said he would remain until his Redeemer,

“For I know that MY REDEEMER LIVETH, and that he SHALL STAND AT THE LATTER DAY UPON THE EARTH.” (Job 19:25)

Death

When we understand the Scripture penalty for sin is simply “death,” (Genesis 2:17; Ezekiel 18:4; Romans 6:23 and others) we realize there is no foundation for this idea that the penalty is “everlasting torture.” Christ paid the full penalty for our sins, that we might not suffer; What? Everlasting [permanent] death, NOT EVERLASTING TORTURE! “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and SIN, when it is finished, BRINGETH FORTH DEATH.” (James 1:15) Christ: “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, HOW THAT CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3)
