Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Do The Unsaved Go To Hell When They Die?
It depends on what you mean by 'hell'. If you're talking about a place of eternal physical torture, then I believe they don't. What I believe is that both "time" and the "physical" exist only in this world, that neither really exist in Heaven or hell.
I believe the 'hell' the Bible talks about in an absence of God. In fact, this is what I believe Christ had come to save us from. John 3:16 says that God gave us Jesus so that 'whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life'. Romans 6:23 says that the wages of sin is death. Death, not hell or the lake of fire. Some Christians think that 'perishing' and 'death' are metaphors for hell or the lake of fire, but perishing seems, to me, to be something else altogether, a state of nonexistence. Revelation suggests, at least to me, that those who are cast into the lake of fire are satan, the false prophet, and their followers. Those are people who believe in God, yet willingly turn against Him. This would not include people who have no beliefs in God whatsoever.
