Hell is Not Endless Punishment

The teaching of hell being eternal punishment is a false doctrine that originated in Egypt. This study will demonstrate that the Jews were corrupted with this false doctrine, and then it spread to early Christians. You will also learn the true meaning of the Greek and Hebrew words translated as hell, as well as what Jesus and the apostles mean when they spoke of hell.

    I read your summary pdf (thanks for including that, btw) and looked at the verses you included as defense for your perspective of scripture. I was saddened to see you cut off one such passage just short of its final declaration.

    Rev 20:13 – 14 “13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.”

    But if you had continued to Rev 20:15 “And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

    I just have to ask, why did you cut this off, and how do you reconcile this verse?

    Hi Joshua,

    I’m sorry for the very slow response. This e-mail got lost in my to do folder and I just realized a few days. I’ve been quite busy and am just now getting to it.

    To understand the meaning of Rev 20:15 you have to understand the purpose of the lake of fire, which is to purify and save, not to torture forever.
    Rev 20:15 “And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

    Here are two articles that will explain in detail. Please let me know if you have further questions.

    How can there be any more saving after this if this was to be the final judgment?

  • MitchellKuhn


    Where in the scriptures does is say that the white throne judgment is the final judgement? That is just a false doctrine taught by the Churches of this world.

    We have to search the scriptures diligently to see if what we are told is actually the truth.

    Acts 17:11 1 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    This whole discussion hinges on what happens to someone that is cast into the lake of fire. We have been taught one thing, but the truth of the scriptures is another. These studies will help:… Lake of fire… Lake of fire 2 I hope this helps,


  • David Watts

    Yes sir I could not agree more that we must study to show ourselves approved and rightly divide the word of God. You asked me a question sir but I must ask, what evidence do you have that suggests that the White thrown judgement isn’t the final judgement. I understand that the bible itself is not in chronological order but there is still order to God’s word. He does everything in order. If the events in revelations are to take place in the order in which it is written (which I believe they are) then there is no more judgement after the white throne judgement and death, hell, and those whose names are not written in the book of life shall be cast into the lake of fire and not for a season but for eternity. Show me in the scripitures where that is not true.

  • MitchellKuhn

    Have you listened to or read the hell study where your comments are posted? I address you questions in great detail in that study.

  • David Watts

    Yes sir I’ve read the entire study and not to be offensive I’ve seen plenty of people take scripture and spin it in favor of their viewpoint when in reality it doesn’t apply. I can’t argue the factual information you gave regarding where you believe the concept originated, but your explanation of the White Throne judgement honestly just doesn’t make sense. Please believe I am not trying to be contentious or just argue to argue. I am just trying to study God’s word and need to understand other’s viewpoint on this subject.

  • MitchellKuhn


    I understand that many twist the scriptures to fit their own viewpoint. I’ll show you from the sum of the Word of God that he intends to save all men through fiery judgment.

    What does God tell us that he desires to do will all mankind?

    (1Ti 2:3 NKJV) For this *is* good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
    (1Ti 2:4 NKJV) who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    We are also told that God does all he desires, all that pleases him.

    (Isa 46:10 NKJV) Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times *things* that are not *yet* done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’

    God also tells us to love our enemies, so won’t he obey the very command himself that he gives to us?

    (Mat 5:44 NKJV) But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

    (Mat 5:48 NKJV) Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    How can a perfect heavenly father violate his own commands to us by burning his enemies in hell for all eternity with no hope of ever being forgiven?
    So what happens when God sends fire to judge us?

    (1Co 3:14 NKJV) If anyone’s work which he has built on *it* endures, he will receive a reward.
    (1Co 3:15 NKJV) If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; *but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.*

    (Isa 26:9 NKJV) With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; *For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.*

    God’s plan is to save all men by judging them and teaching them righteousness. The White Throne judgment is for that purpose, to save many through judgment.

    If you sincerely want to understand what I’m teaching then please read this study as well:

    (Mat 25:46 NKJV) And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

    The Greek word here for “everlasting” is “aionios” and does not mean eternal. It is an age that has a beginning and an end. I deal with this word in the Hell study you ready. The word for “eternal” in the second half of the verse is also “aionios”.

    (Joh 17:3 NKJV) And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

    This is not easy to understand. Here is a study that explains life aionios.

    We must first be the the unbelieving that are cast into “aionian punishment” before we are given life. The purpose of punishment is to cause obedience, to make us like Christ.

    (Tit 2:11 NKJV) For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
    (Tit 2:12 NKJV) teaching (chastening) us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,

    The purpose of the ages is to teach us to be like Christ. Once the ages come to an end we will all be like Christ and will be immortal with him and the Father.

    (1Co 15:53 NKJV) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal *must* put on immortality.

    Here is a study on the Ages.
