Response to It came from the Bible Vince


1067 geenna geenna gheh-en-nah

of Hebrew origin Mnh-ayq, 01516 and 02011; TDNT-1:657,113; n f

AV-hell 9, hell fire + 3588 + 4442 3; 12

1) Hell is the place of the future punishment call "Gehenna" or "Gehenna of fire". This was originally the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem, where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast out and burned; a fit symbol of the wicked and their future destruction.

Sure. A garbage dump becomes something else!~

Read the verse with the proper translation ...

[ 5 but I will show to you, whom ye may fear; Fear him who, after the killing, is having authority to cast to the gehenna; yes, I say to you, Fear ye Him. -YLT]

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he has killed your spirit has power to throw your life into the garbage dump; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
