Most of the boys I grew up with really wanted to experience sleeping with a girl at least once in their lives. Well; the Viet Nam war foreshortened the lives of a pretty large number of boys in their teens, and also young men in their early twenties, who never got to see their dream come true. On top of that, some of them not only missed out on sleeping with a girl, but they went straight to Hell from the battlefield.

I can only imagine how grief-stricken those guys must be. They not only missed out on this life, but the next too. Hell for them is a double whammy of despair; defined by Webster's as utter loss of hope. i.e. to expect neither relief nor improvement in one's circumstances.

â—� Eccl 3:1 . . To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Well; there's a time for love-- in Hell there's no going back to make up for lost time.

I find it interesting that you quote Ecclesiastes in a thread lamenting Hell. Aside from a few strained apologetic arguments, it's pretty obvious that the author of Ecclesiastes didn't believe in Hell, Heaven, or any other kind of afterlife.

[font=Verdana]â—� Eccl 9:4-6 . . For to him that is joined with all the living there is hope; for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. As well their love, as their hatred and their envy, is perished long ago; neither have they any more a portion for ever in anything that is done under the sun.[/font]

Have you considered that Ecclesiastes is a dialogue between the secular, material worldly pov and the pov of a Man of GOD? It is a constant phrase and rebuttal of the differences between the two contentions,

not just one fairly schizophrenic view point from one person about life.

Immigration Update: 975 days have elapsed since beginning the thread. If the figures in post #1 are within reason, then something like 59,285,850 new arrivals have checked into the fiery sector of hades since Sept 18, 2017.

That's enough people to populate more than seven cites the size of New York, and/or fourteen cities the size of Los Angeles.

God designated His son to judge all those people. (John 5:22-23, Acts 17:31, 2Tim 4:1). I sometimes wonder how Christ is ever going to get around to everybody on an individual basis. But you know what? . . time is on his side; he has more than enough to work with.

According to Luke 16:22, angels provided Lazarus' transportation to Abraham's location. The Bible doesn't say who, or what, provided the rich man's transportation to the other location.

One of the most disturbing scenes I've yet to observe in a Hollywood movie occurs in "GHOST" starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. When someone marked for hell passes away, these eerie phantoms emerge, uttering awful moans, and drag their panic-stricken prey down into the ground. I don't know if any of that is true or not; but it seems plausible.

But can you picture in your mind's eye just how shocking and terrifying it would be to die and of a sudden be able to see the spirit creatures all around us stalking people day and night 24/7 without our knowing, patiently waiting the moment when they can haul us off?
