Heaven and Hell can be Infinite?

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: The concept of Hell and Heaven is absurd and negates all Human Intelligence.

Dear Christofer,

It is shown by scientists the fist signs of Human species appeared before 150000 years before.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human

There is conflicting dates on many things.

You have mentioned that by the Grace of jesus only an individual can be saved. Is not God partial here that only humans after 0 AD will be saved whereas the vast majotiy of human race of 150000 years will be unsaved.

No, because it is grace. Grace is defined as something given that is not deserved. Furthermore, those who have come before the time of Jesus could still have been saved.

One more question is that what do you mean by Saving? Is it for judging favourably on Judgemnet day ?

Saved from Hell.

In another reply I already pointed out that the concept of Time negates Heaven and Hell. If time is there Heaven and Hell have to be infinite or else if Time is not there then the suffering and pleasures of both Hell/heaven disappears.

Not necessarily. God remains incomprehensible to our minds, but it is certain that time will continue. Heaven and Hell are infinite, I don't understand your argument.

If time is infinite the Hellfire will continue indefinitely then what will happen to the suffering, Then sufferings will also be indefinite. There is no end to suffering. Suffering,suffering,suffering how long? till infinity. You imagine the absurdity of this thought.

It is not absurdity that those who forsake God will suffer into eternity. It is uneasy yes for all of us but it's not logically absurd. Your cannot accept Heaven nor Hell because it's not emotionally appealing, but neither is the world we live in. Acceptance of the truth has no bearing on whether we like the whole truth or not.

Wish you all Happiness, Peace, Health wealth here and hereafter.

Regards,

Devi.

God Bless
