The evidence indicates rather that hell is a place essentially of shame, one in which people will have no fellowship or discourse with God. Biblical pictures of flame are clearly metaphors, first because if taken literally they result in contradiction (how can there be flames, yet also darkness, as the Bible says?); second, because as metaphors they fit in with other metaphors (flames and thirst as the opposite of water, which is in Scripture a metaphor for God's Spirit) and also fit a literal experience of shame (think of being ashamed and your face burning.) Furthermore, other descriptions of hell, such as people weeping and grinding their teeth, match with expressions of shame in the ancient world, but not physical pain.
("The Doctrine of Hell in a Nutshell" -James Patrick Holding)
After ten thousand years of resentment and planning, the dark lord guides his young wife across a frozen lake of ash and through the gateway to his domain. There are demons petrified as gargoyles in the places they were standing at the end of the last Great War, and the glowing script is record of the couple's prophetic consumation and infernal conception of the Anti-christ: the event that will reignite the burning pits of hell.
This entry is an homage to the film High Plains Drifter. It's a Clint Eastwood film. The town begs for Eastwood's protection from bandits and the only way they'll get it is if they paint their ENTIRE town red and name it HELL.
As the damned souls filed into their new home for the next eternity they were amazed to find that the stereotype about horns and the devil was in fact true. To the point where he had even used them as a major part of Hell's external decoration.
100 years after the incident on Phobos(one of the moons on mars) the government decided to fill it up with criminals,and make it a huge jail.History was forgotten and the leaders of earth didnt know what was ahead of them... HELL!
: Steaming lava, sounds of madness & evil, the smell being unbareable -we find ourselves in hell. It's up to you where you wanna go once you're dead... ::
Hell got old... people started to adapt to all the pain and torture, ...even... like it. And with humans digging deeper, it wouldnt be long before the firey depths of hell were uncovered. This was the answer, a new realm of the clouds, of the mind. The only torture was that of oneself. The souls were abandoned, filed away, left for an infinite life of regret and self pity.
Based on part of a dictionary definition of hell.
"Among ancient Jews, Sheol or Tophet was conceived as a gloomy place of departed souls where they are not tormented but wander about unhappily"
Hell. The final resting place of all damned souls.
At first arrival they are tortured by clawed demons—ripping and tearing at the skin until it is shredded from the muscle. Then they move down the Stairwell of Zwellalla into the eternal lake of fire, where they will burn and writhe until time’s end.
The gate of Mugengoku
Entering the eighth hell, the blast furnace of Mugengoku, souls labor through a great wasteland of barren ice. Escape is impossible. Those who attempt are mercilessly hunted by the circling Vajra... winged demons wreathed in flame.
The doomed souls will walk the misty barren land alone. Their guilt and sins from the past will mock them through their journey, tormenting and tricking their minds. They will arrive through the gate of the dead and they will earn their redemption to another chance at life or forever be lost in hell.
