According to the KJV ... it's death and hell. I stick with that.Krispy
What about in Heb 2 where it says that he tasted death for every man....this must mean not only death of the physical but of the spiritual as well. That way the punishment could be satisfied.
One thing amiss with that line of thinking, Desi... we never die spiritually. But then we're opening up a can of worms concerning hell. Jesus was not punished in hell. Like the earlier poster said... if he was punished in hell, how could he have been in paradise that same day?I think you're reading too much into Heb 2, and making some assumptions that contradict what other passages say.Krispy
Help me to understand your perspective.Let me see if I understand you correctly,Christian man lives.Christian man dies.Body stays asleep.Spirit man is immediately judged upon his physical death.Spirit man goes to be with the Jesus in Heaven.Jesus returns to Earth for His church.Dead Christian man is reunited with his spirit man from heaven.All Christians are gathered, living and dead, to live with Jesus for eternity.
You garnered all of that from what I've said on this thread? :-) Krispy
Ha Ha...no no.Just in your last statement.Is anything I said not true concerning your current understanding of the statements I typed?
If the punishment for sin is just our physical death...then Christ didn't rescue us by His death on the cross...because Christians die the physical death every day.He did something more...he paid the ultimate sacrifice... the ultimate death...eternal separation from God.But....death could not contain Him and he was victorious over it.
He did something more...he paid the ultimate sacrifice... the ultimate death...eternal separation from God.
