We know that Hell is real. Jesus was himself very, very clear about the reality and threat of hell. So, if Hell is not empty, and there is a hellfire, is anyone right now suffering its torments?  Who do you think is likely to be there? Why should you think they deserved to be in Hell? Are we capable of knowing who will finally accept God's forgiveness?

As a Christian, we know who and where Kings David and his son Solomon are, but because 1billion people think the two kings were big sinners, let's argue why they may not be in Hell.

"Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine; the soul who sins shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4)

No one can be saved without accepting the message of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12)

I think that no one goes to hell until after the final judgment (Rev. 20:12-15), though thankfully it is God that decides who that'll be.

I really think we can't say with any certainty who is in Hell.  Looking at a person's life we can figure they would either be going to Heaven, if they lived a good, spiritual life, or Hell, if they lived a godless and demonic life.  But in their final moments, we must ask the question..."Did they repent?"  If they did, they would be like the repentant thief.

I don't think we should even speculate on who might be in hell. That's God's judgement alone and creating a poll to discuss the final resting place of someone's soul seems flippant and frankly childish.

God tells us SOME of those who have entered heaven, but He doesn't tell us about ANYONE being in Hell.  Thus it is incumbent on us as Christians to pray for anyone God has not revealed as being with Him.

Once the blessed Anthony was praying in his cell. A voice came to him, saying: "Anthony! You have not yet attained the measure of the tanner who lives in Alexandria." On hearing this, the elder got up early in the morning and hastened to Alexandria. When he came to the tanner, the latter was extremely surprised to see him. The elder said to him: "Tell me of your feats, because it is for this that I have come all the way from the desert." The tanner answered: "I don't remember the least good that I could have done at any time; that is why, when I get up early from my bed, before starting with my work, I tell myself: 'All the inhabitants of this city, from the small to the great, will enter the Kingdom for their virtues, and I alone will go to eternal fire for my sins.' I repeat the same words in my heart before I go to sleep." Hearing this, the blessed Anthony replied: "Indeed, my son, you, as a skilled artisan, sitting in your home, have acquired the Kingdom; while I, although I'm spending all my life in the desert, have not gathered the spiritual wisdom, nor reached the state of mind that you have shown with your words."

To echo Akimel's post with another saying that is appropriate for this topic:

One day Abba Isaac went to a monastery. He saw a brother committing a sin and he condemned him. When he returned to the desert, an angel of the Lord came and stood in front of the door of his cell, and said, 'I will not let you enter.' But he persisted saying, 'What is the matter?' and the angel replied, 'God has sent me to ask you where you want to throw the guilty brother whom you have condemned.' Immediately he repented and said, 'I have sinned, forgive me.' Then the angel said, "Get up, God has forgiven you. But from now on, be careful not to judge someone before God has done so.'

I just don't understand how we can possibly judge these people's spiritual state seeing as how we have no clue about their personal relationship with God and their struggles. There is a Saint in our Church who calls us to even pray for the salvation of Stan himself (I corrected to Satan but though Stan would be better, lol)...

I am so glad that at least some around here understand such basics about Orthodox eschatology.  I recall my surprise where a longstanding priest (no longer here) had no clue about this, and could not get such basics even when it was explained rather plainly and simply.

But, I am surprised that some prefer to see Hitler in hell to Mohammad. What`s the difference between the two? Actually, Mohammad did way more horrendous and barbaric things than Hitler, Mussolini,Stalin,Mao or Mengele combined. Mohammad destroyed human souls with the Quran, and continues killilng milliones since the year 666. I am certain he is burning in hell. Anyone out there to prove me wrong?

Thank you, and bless you ALL!

But, I am surprised that some prefer to see Hitler in hell to Mohammad. What`s the difference between the two? Actually, Mohammad did way more horrendous and barbaric things than Hitler, Mussolini,Stalin,Mao or Mengele combined. Mohammad destroyed human souls with the Quran, and continues killilng milliones since the year 666. I am certain he is burning in hell. Anyone out there to prove me wrong?

Isn't it better to say we don't prefer anyone to be in hell, but that rather some prefer it themselves than to submit (to borrow a verb that Islam much abuses) to the true God? In that, Muhammad would be considered no more or less than any other sinner, in as far as his very human proclivities are concerned (though Islam denies these of its prophet, and so via backdoor deification of the man confuses evil for good, utterly failing the smell test cf. Isaiah 5:20 and just basic human decency: it is wrong to dissolve your stepson's marriage via "revelation" so that you may have his wife; it is wrong to violate a woman as  a show of military victory, etc.)

This vast difference in mindset results in some farcical situations. A Muslim once accused me, completely seriously, of being in grave error for believing that I, as a Christian, could get into heaven despite Muhammad (meaning, despite not heading his warnings in the Qur'an). I've never laughed so hard in my life. I knew how it was meant, but I simply could not stop myself from replying that, if anything, Muhammad gets into heaven despite Muhammad! Ooo, they didn't like that...!  Cheesy

So, maybe he is in heaven (but I personally would very much doubt it), or maybe he's in hell. I can't know, as I don't know the state of his soul. The best we can say is that no matter where he is, he will have earned it.

This may not be the proper thread, if not I apologize, but this is the first time I have seen 666 associated with Mohammed.  Where did you get the date?

Forgive me for saying so, but I am honestly shocked that Orthodox Christians believe there may be a way to heaven outside Christ.  This belief goes against everything we are taught.  There is but one alternative to heaven.  The thing we can't know is the relationship between an individual and God, so we can guess who will or will not go, but we can't be 100% certain.

Balthasar,

Be careful in your burning desire to see your enemies burn in hell that you don't end up burning in hell yourself.
