In pre-Christian Fijian mythology there was belief in an underworld called Murimuria. Hell is conceived of in most Abrahamic religions as a place of, or a form of, punishment.
Early Judaism had no concept of Hell, although the concept of an afterlife was introduced during the Hellenistic periodapparently from neighboring Hellenistic religions. It occurs for example in the Book of Daniel. Daniel proclaims "And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Gehinnom is not Hell, but originally a grave and in later times a sort of Purgatory where one is judged based on one's life's deeds, or rather, where one becomes fully aware of one's own shortcomings and negative actions during one's life. The Kabbalah explains it as a "waiting room" commonly translated as an "entry way" for all souls not just the wicked.
The overwhelming majority of rabbinic thought maintains that people are not in Gehinnom forever; the longest that one can be there is said to be 12 months, however there has been the occasional noted exception. Some consider it a spiritual forge where the soul is purified for its eventual ascent to Olam Habah heb.
This is also mentioned in the Kabbalah, where the soul is described as breaking, like the flame of a candle lighting another: the part of the soul that ascends being pure and the "unfinished" piece being reborn. Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead to Jewish teachings, hell is not entirely physical; rather, it can be compared to a very intense feeling of shame. People are ashamed of their misdeeds and this constitutes suffering which makes up for the bad deeds.
When one has so deviated from the will of Godone is said to be in Gehinnom. This is not meant to refer to some point in the future, but to the very present Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead. The gates of teshuva return are said to be always open, and so one can align his will with that of God at any moment.
Being out of alignment with God's will is itself a punishment according to the Torah. Many scholars of Jewish mysticism, particularly of the Kabbalahdescribe seven "compartments" or "habitations" of Hell, just as they describe seven divisions of Heaven.
These divisions go by many different names, and the most frequently mentioned are as follows: . Besides those mentioned above, there also exist additional terms that have been often used to either refer to Hell in general or to some region of the underworld:. Maimonides declares in his 13 principles of faith that the hells of the rabbinic literature were pedagocically motivated inventions to encourage respect of the Torah commandements by mankind, which had been regarded as immature.
The Christian doctrine of hell derives from passages in the New Testament. The word hell does not appear in Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead Greek New Testament; instead one of three words is used: the Greek words Tartarus or Hadesor the Hebrew word Gehinnom. In the Jewish concept of Sheol, such as expressed in Ecclesiastes,  Sheol or Hades is a place where there is no activity. However, since Augustinesome [ which?
While these three terms are translated in the KJV as "hell" these three terms have three very different meanings. The Roman Catholic Church defines Hell as "a state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed. The nature of this judgment is inconsistent with many Protestant churches teaching the saving comes from accepting Jesus Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead as their savior, while the Greek Orthodox and Catholic Churches teach that the judgment hinges on both faith and works.
However, many Liberal Christians throughout Liberal Protestant and Anglican churches believe in universal reconciliation see beloweven though it contradicts the traditional doctrines that are usually held by the evangelicals within their denominations. Some modern Christian theologians subscribe to the doctrines of conditional immortality.
Conditional immortality is the belief that the soul dies with the body and does not live again until the Fighting In The Streets - Speedy Keen* - YKnow Wot I Mean?. As with other Jewish writings of the Second Temple period, the New Testament text distinguishes two words, both translated "Hell" in older English Bibles: Hades"the grave", and Gehenna where God "can destroy both body and soul".
However, because of the Greek words used in translating from the Hebrew text, the Hebrew ideas have become confused with Greek myths and ideas. In the Hebrew text when people died they went to Sheolthe grave  and the wicked ultimately went to Gehenna and were consumed by fire.
The Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead words Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead "the grave" or "death" or "eventual destruction of the wicked", were translated using Greek words and later texts became a mix of mistranslation, pagan influence, and Greek myth.
Christian mortalism is the doctrine that all Seven Rings Of Hell - Various - Lunatic Rampage + Wake The Dead and women, including Christians, must die, and do not continue and are not conscious after death. Therefore, annihilationism includes the doctrine that "the wicked" are also destroyed rather than tormented forever in traditional "Hell" or the lake of fire. Christian mortalism and annihilationism are directly related to the doctrine of conditional immortality, the idea that a human soul is not immortal unless it Sail Along Silvery Moon - Various - Schlagerernte 1958 Spiel Noch Einmal Für Mich given eternal life at the second coming of Christ and resurrection of the dead.
Biblical scholars looking at the issue through the Hebrew text have denied the teaching of innate immortality. One of the most notable English opponents of the immortality of the soul was Thomas Hobbes who describes the idea as a Greek "contagion" in Christian doctrine.
It is not Roman Catholic dogma that anyone is in Hell,  though many individual Catholics do not share this view. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:  "This state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called 'hell'" and  " They show With Honour Crowned - Albert W.
Ketelbey - In A Persian Market complete frustration and emptiness of life without God. Rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy. The Seventh-day Adventist Church 's official beliefs support annihilationism. Seventh-day Adventists believe that death is a state of unconscious sleep until the resurrection. They base this belief on biblical texts such as Ecclesiastes which states "the dead know nothing", and 1 Thessalonians which contains a description of the dead being raised from the grave at the second coming.
These verses, it is argued, indicate that death is only a period or form of slumber. Adventists teach that the resurrection of the Weepin Willow Blues - Jacinta - A Tribute To Bessie Smith will take place shortly after the second coming of Jesusas described in Revelation that follows Revelationwhereas the resurrection of the wicked will occur after the millenniumas described in Revelation and that follow Revelation andthough Revelation and 15 actually describe a mixture of saved and condemned people being raised from the dead and judged.
Adventists reject the traditional doctrine of hell as a state of everlasting conscious torment, believing instead that the wicked will be permanently destroyed after the millennium by the lake of firewhich is called 'the second death ' in Revelation Those Adventist doctrines about death and hell reflect an underlying belief in: a conditional immortality or conditionalismas opposed to the immortality of the soul ; and b the monistic nature of human beingsin which the soul is not separable from the body, as opposed to bipartite or tripartite conceptions, in which the soul is separable.
Jehovah's Witnesses hold that the soul ceases to exist when the person dies  and therefore that Hell Sheol or Hades is a state of non-existence. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. What about the instances in the Bible when the word hell is used? What is hell, according to the Bible? These three words are Hades, Gehenna and tartaroo. Later garbage and dead bodies were disposed of and burned in this valley.
Tartaroo appears once in the Bible in 4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment. So, what is hell?
