Dear S_of_Christ,

Regarding the question why I asked about time continuity.

As per your Hell ( your truth) the sinners will be sanctioned a new Body to suffer in eternal hell. You are agreeing that time will continue.

I suppose it would continue, but it remains uncertain due to the fact creation will be made anew.

Now think on the no.of years or lifespan the poor soul has to pass.

1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000..........................................., You add infinite zeroes to it.

Correct.

What you will get? HELL cannot be explained. Hell is incomprehensible.

How is that unable to be explained? Merely because we cannot imagine the number of zeros? That does not disqualify the concept.

Similarly heaven is incomprehensible.

See above.

Now think about an Ideal Paradise or Heaven ( which is 525 C since Bible says it will be having sunlight 7 times sevendays + one moon's light equal to sun's light ).,

Figure of speech, not literal.

Ok your God allotted me Paradise. Is it eternal bliss. then I will not be requiring anything and it will be better to die which will be impossible. Then if the paradise consists of the fulfillment of all earthly desires infinitely there will not be any fights, no tension, whwtever you wish you get, drinks, wine,food, angels, nectar, good sleep, good water, good milk, you think on these lines. Life for the poor soul will be very much boring that he may pass a message to others that HELL will be better than Heaven.

That's incorrect. Heaven is not about material bliss. You suggest that Heaven will be Hell because one receives no hardship (btw, there will be no sleep in Heaven). The thing that makes Heaven so wonderful is the presence of the Maker. You've brought up a philosophical belief that being always happy would be equivalent to being miserable. Without God I can agree but since we have that in the picture, I don't buy it.

Is the truth which you want to convey. If your answer is these things are incomprehensible to poor souls like us stop debating. Debating is ideas, concepts which are true and the Truth which you are projecting are incomprehensible for the present generation.

Heaven and Hell is perfectly comprehendable with what we know about it so far. No, I am not saying we know everything there is to know about Heaven and Hell yet but with the information we have, it is able to be understood.

Regards,

Shri devi.

God Bless
