Actually, leading scholars who believe in hell will tell you Luke 16 actually has nothing to do with hell. It can't possibly, b/c it takes place before the Day of Judgment. As for Revelation, if you want to take the Lake of Fire literally, you'll also have to agree that Jesus is literally a lamb, b/c that is how he is portrayed in Revelation 14. Chance are you don't think Jesus was literally a lamb. You realize the author is using figurative language, which means you're interpreting, which means you are imposing your own reading on the text. So don't be surprised when others do the same--or when their reading disagrees with yours.

Um...... no. Dude, or dudette as the case may be, Luke 16:23, "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom." Whatever man, you can't read or refuse to see the words that's your problem. As for Hell not existing until the day of judgement once again you have no clue and no scriptural reference as evidence of your claim. About Revelation, if you can't tell the differenc e between symbolism and realism then there you're pretty much beyond help and trapped by your own ignorance.... tis a pity.

The new documentary Hellbound? has reignited discussion about the perennial topic of hell as well as revealed some very bizarre perspectives.

Kevin Miller, the film’s director, who identifies as a Christian, stated in an interview that, regarding the traditional view of hell as a place of fiery torment, “I don’t see anything in the Bible that would lead me to believe that such a place exists.” Instead, according to Miller, when Jesus talked about hell, he was talking about the here and now.

Really? Jesus didn’t warn about a place of judgment to come? And Director Miller gets his...
