The Book of Revelation, written some time in the last half of the first century, has five verses that mention a “Lake of Fire”. This is the type of stuff Christians use to keep their wicked flock from going on murder rampages. Murders get sent to the Lake of Fire. How weak you must be morally if the only thing stopping you from killing your neighbors is the fear of eternal torment.
“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a Lake of Fire burning with brimstone.”
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into theLake of Fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
“Then Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.”
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
