Cool Yeah, I kinda have to agree with you on that. I have an intuition that God, at the end of time, will do what's right. In fact, I'm confident of it. I think that that means nobody will be suffering in hell forever. But even if it doesn't mean that, I don't think I'll be disappointed because I will understand all things, including why some people end up in hell. But until God explains that, and in light of the universalist passages and the mistranslations and jury-rigging of verses about hell, I think it's not the case.
Basically, it seems like Gehenna, Sheol/Hades, and Tartarus get mixed in with the lake of fire as being one and the same place - a place where some are tormented for all eternity (weeping and gnashing of teeth and what-not). With the KJV, it's easy to make this look that way - they're all translated, "Hell."
As far as I can tell,
And that's New Testament and Old Testament Hell. There are a number of proof-texts that only work if you allow definitions that are not obvious unless someone tells you that they are there. Smashing together all these concepts that are supposed to all be identical and all be hell really doesn't seem coherent to me.

Hi Presbygirl! Welcome back!
So my question with that is, what happened to the people who didn't accept Christ or do whatever it takes to be saved from hell prior to NT time? Did they simply not go to hell, or get a second chance after they died, or did they all go to heaven? If any of these are true, it'd suck more to be born after Jesus came than before! Whereas before Christ's sacrifice was efficacious for everyone, after, it's only efficacious for those who believe. Born in 200 BC somewhere far from Israel? Heaven-bound. Born in 200 AD and don't hear about Jesus? Sorry, you're bound for hell. Basically, after Jesus comes, instead of the requirements being less strenuous, they become more so.
God is not unjust.

I think that all of my opinions are right. Thank God nobody else does, or I could become a fundy preacher.
