When we hear people talk about judgement we may hear phrases like
“…burning in hell for all eternity.”– Average Pastor
It’s wrong and physically impossible. Hell is temporary.
Hell is temporary storage for the impurity and corruption which will be permanently disposed of in the lake of fire which is eternal. However, even though hell is temporary and we’re not judging anyone, hell is expanding, it’s the cause of global warming. Believing in Jesus Christ is the only way to escape it.
Today’s passage establishes that hell is temporary and will be disposed of in the lake of fire and brimstone, which we’ve shown to be in outer darkness. This is congruent with the broad narrative of scripture.
Light is on the periphery of creation while all of the corruption and impurity accumulate at the center. At the end of the age they will switch places: corruption and impurity will be cast off into outer darkness while light and purity will come down from heaven to dell in the new Jerusalem.
This is going to sound exactly like the kind of judgmental stuff that everyone hates, the reason why they hate Christianity, but we’re describing a logical process with a solid basis in physics which is built around a biblical theory of gravitation.
