"However much some people may dislike it, there is no escape from the fact that all search for truth is controversial. The reason for this is simple: once some truth is revealed some untruth is unmasked for what it is; and those who prefer the untruth resent the unmasking. That is only to be expected, on account of the weakness of our mortality. And their offense is not so blameworthy for their resentment as for their preference which is the occasion of it.
"Consequently, those who dislike controversy are in reality at bottom people who dislike truth — not that they dislike all truths, but only those truths that make them uncomfortable. Such dislike, and corresponding discomfort, may be due to several causes. A truth may disturb some settled conviction; so that the sufferer has to start thinking again and to embark on a toilsome re-examination of ideas which he has accepted as certain for so long a time that any disturbance of them is bound to be most upsetting. With others, a newly encountered truth may prick the conscience by exposing some comfortably accepted sin. This, too, may be felt to be very vexatious on account of the discomfort of inward strife induced by it." (R. B. Withers)

Questions about Hell
Didn't Paul teach that some will have the proper "sorrow" leading to salvation, while others will have the "sorrow of the world" that "worketh death"?
In Galatians 5:21 Paul gave a list of sins and said, they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Aren't such people unsaved forever?
Aren't those whose names are not in the book of life cast into the lake of fire to suffer for ever and ever along with the devil, beast, and false prophet?
Isn't the penalty for sin eternal torment in hell fire?
What does the Hebrew word Sheol mean?
What / who is Hinnom?
What is the origin of the English word hell?
What did James mean when he said that the tongue defileth the whole body, setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell [gehenna]? Is this a reference to eternal punishment?
Doesn't Mark 3:29 teach that a person who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation?
Luke 3:9&17 state Every tree therefor which bringeth not forth good fruit will be cast into what fire? Why is there a distinction between wheat and chaff? If the chaff is burned up, doesnt that speak of annihilation? If the fire is unquenchable fire, doesn't that speak of eternal torment?
If Paul taught the full counsel of God, why did he fail to mention the Lake of Fire? No one has been able to answer that for me until I perused your site, namely the Question on the Lake of Fire. I had thought that this might be limited in scope and dealing with the nations and Israel, and not for the whole of humanity. Could you elaborte on the Devil, Beast, and False Prophet being there?
