Discussion for Psalms 37:20

  • God\'s Woman- for verse 20
    Satan the devil come to steal -kill and to destroy the truth. There is an eternal hell that was made for the devil and his angels, but the false prophets and those whose names were not found written in the Lambs book of life were cast into the lake of fire and brimstone- much like volcanoes. Revelations 21:8- 19:15, 9:6- Matthew 25:46- Mark 9:43-44-everlasting punishment. The wicked shall be turned into hell...Psalms 9:17. No one has to go to hell. Repent in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost-Acts 2-38. Let no one knock on your door and deceive you with their "no hell " doctrine. Hell is real
  • So there is NO ETERNAL HELL, only destruction for the wicked. The concept of eternal, endless punishment that goes on and on is A LIE coming from false prophets and falsifiers of GOD 'S WORD. God has no need for torturing the wicked, He has no use for them at all - so the wicked shall be destroyed once and for all. Again, when I read this take from THE BIBLE, I feel so good - God 's Word is adamant and clear. The world and all the false prophets try their best in making The Bible somehow obscure and victim for argumentation. God is mercyful and patient, but He is also holy and uncompromising. Eternal life for the repentant believers, final destruction for the wicked. It 's in THE BIBLE, I just wish people would ACTUALLY READ it once in a while. JESUS CHRIST - THE ULTIMATE POWER AND ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD
