Hope for all those who fell into the lake of fire
In hell God’s love manifests itself as fire, as light in heaven. The second death is the separation of the soul and God, then in the lake of fire not God’s love as torment. Am I right? At this point I also got the idea of the great theologian cs Lewis. He wrote – if the soul – piece of wood, hell – fire. And there comes a time when a log becomes ash, and cannot burn. This ash – *former soul*.
Hell is hell, the lake of fire is the lake of fire. The reasoning of people is often far from the truth.
Alexander, eternal punishment may not mean infinite, and unchangeable till the end of time. Even if it is infinite, I believe in the lake of fire will be much easier than in hell.
“Fire lake” – “burning” unbridled passions, which is impossible to achieve due to the lack of body. Eternal (long) life in this state is not possible, because even the most stupid sooner or later, you may realize that you just can’t change their minds, to keep their thoughts and control emotions, otherwise he is doomed to suffer until complete exhaustion of the vital powers of the soul, to a complete disintegration of personal consciousness. Such variants may be, there are also “incorrigible” villains possessed by evil passions and inclinations. What they experience after death, it is impossible to know someone else’s soul – darkness. Everyone feels differently.
In the spiritual world there is also an opportunity to repair the consciousness, although on the ground it is much easier to do. About this opportunity the Scripture says –
Because Christ, that he might bring us to God, once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the spirit whom He and the spirits in prison went down, and preached (1 pet.3:18)
For he was dead and blagovestov . so that they judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit . (1 pet 4:6)
If the spirits of the dead staying in the darkness was the treatment of Christ, it means they have hope to change his mind. It all depends on the desire to change, there’s always a way to Light, but not all are looking for.
