In the Bible the tree of life is used to refer to an actual tree which has leaves and fruit, but it's also used euphemistically to refer to the fruits of seeking and gaining wisdom.
Time no Longer
How could there be no night in the new Jerusalem for ever and ever but, at the same time, day and night in the lake of fire for ever and ever? Physics and our unified theory of everything resolve this perfectly.
Venus may have been the source of the fire and brimstone which destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. It may also have been the source of the hail mingled with fire in the Exodus. Any time fire fell from heaven, that's what Venus is for.
Proof of God Won’t Help You
On one hand, the Bible says that the truth about God is known to everyone, no one has an excuse to not believe. On the other hand, God doesn't have to personally intervene in our lives to prove himself to us.
The eternal torment referred to by the Bible doesn't take place in hell, which is temporarily in the center of the Earth, there's another location: a lake of fire and brimstone in outer darkness.
Hell is Temporary
When we hear people talk about judgement we may hear phrases like “...burning in hell for all eternity.” It's wrong and physically impossible. Hell is temporary.
Gnashing of Teeth
We're making the case that hell is at the center of the Earth, it's temporary, and eventually it will be disposed of in the furthest reaches of space referred to in the Bible as outer darkness.
The Lake of Fire
An issue regarding the establishment of the Millennial Kingdom which we have to resolve is: What and where is the lake of fire? It may be the planet Venus.
The Big Picture
We can parse the difference between hell and the lake of fire because we've laid out the broad narrative of scripture, the conceptual backbone of the Bible, a theme which weaves together the law, prophets and the gospel.
What does Soul Refer to?
The word soul occurs 458 times in the KJV. The majority of these references are clearly references to the person as an individual. It's as if the word soul could be used interchangeably with any personal pronoun.
