The Meanings of “Worm” and “Fire” in Hell.

Victor Hafichuk & Paul Cohen,

I am saddened to read about your slanderous accusations about Mary Baxter.  It is obvious that you are trying very hard to come against her testimony because it challenges your belief in universal salvation.  Jesus was clear that hell was not made for people but for satan and his demons, but that eternal damnation results for those that reject him.  It would be incredibly easy to rebuff all of your statements, but I’ll just do one.

“I looked at the woman again, and worms were crawling out of the bones of her skeleton. They were not harmed by the fire. Jesus said, ‘She knows and feels those worms inside.'”

What is the purpose of these creatures? They are specially made to resist fire, to ensure added torment for the souls in Mary’s hell, because just burning these sinners forever is not nearly enough. No, they also have to be conscious of the worms that have infested their bodies. This is not the King of kings; it is the torturer of torturers. His passion for cruelty endures forever.

Jesus himself describes this torment in the book of Mark. It is super accurate in its correlation to the statement from Mary Baxter’s book.  What else do you think these worms refer to that Jesus himself describes? Have you never read this passage before? 

Mark 9:42

42“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. 43If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. [44]b 45And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. [46]c 47And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, 48where

“ ‘the worms that eat them do not die,
and the fire is not quenched.’

Do you want to be right or do you want to know the truth? Satan is the torturer, not Jesus.  He came to save people from torment.  That’s why he spoke so much about hell to warn people.   Universal salvation is a lie.

Hi Erik,

We wholeheartedly agree with the Scripture you cite: 

“ ‘the worms that eat them do not die,
and the fire is not quenched.’

How can we not agree with these words of the Lord when we see Him describing your present condition? 

Paul and Victor

Erik is in hell with Mary.

“… added torment for the souls in Mary’s hell, because just burning these sinners forever is not nearly enough.”

You can’t see you’re in hell, Erik, because you’re dead and blind and the dead know nothing. You condemn our judgment because the worms are eating you. The truth goads you and you find no rest, because there is no rest for the wicked. 

You’ve taken God’s Name to yourself in vain. You contend with the truth and blaspheme His Character – how shall you escape your hell?   

Matthew 23:29-33 EMTV
(29)  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
(30)  and say, If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
(31)  So that you testify against yourselves that you are sons of those who killed the prophets.
(32)  And you, fill up then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt.
(33)  Serpents! Brood of vipers! How shall you escape from the condemnation of hell?

Thank you for your elaboration. Jesus is the truth and he knows my heart and yours. I condemned your judgment and you in turn judged me.

The truth remains. Jesus will send more after me to you.  He will not give up on you until the time comes when it is too late.

Through the Son is the only way to the Father. My faith in him has already set me free from hell.

God bless,

We’ve haven’t judged you, Erik; the Truth we’ve spoken through Jesus Christ has judged you. You’ve spoken nothing but lies, showing us and everyone else that your “Jesus” is the Devil, the father of lies. 

John 8:44-47 ESV
(44)  You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
(45)  But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.
(46)  Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?
(47)  Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.

Paul and Victor

Speak the Truth Despite Conflict
From: Orion To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 9:01 PM Subject: Friends Friends, I do not wish to embark on an empty quest of conflict between ideologies. I simply wish to hear y'all's reasoning for "exposing false teachers" such as Clayton Jennings. I'm a 19 year old kid who is on a journey to spread the word of God and the love that Jesus Christ tells us to spread. My beliefs may be premature, but I ask that you respect my stance as I will respect yours. From: Victor Hafichuk To: Orion Sent: Sunday, May 22, 2016 6:50 AM Subject: Re: Friends Orion, someone asked us about Clayton Jennings and we told them (and him) the truth about his presumed ministry.  “These are the things that you shall do: speak every man the truth with his neighbor. Execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates” (Zechariah 8:16 WEB). It’s that simple. The Lord Jesus Christ has given us His light to shine in darkness. As the apostle Paul wrote about those whom the Lord appoints to ministry:  “He must hold firm to the trustworthy Word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it” (Titus 1:9 ESV). Jude also informs us of the wonderful Day that has arrived: “It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodline...
Insulting the Lord with Hasty Judgement
Subject: From: Megan Doherty To: Date: 11/22/2015 10:15 PM Hi there,  After being inspired by a film with Todd White, I wanted to see if there were any skeptics out there who could prove my enthusiasm wrong. So I came across this website and was quite intrigued. I found myself going “Yes…Yes…So good..So right…This guy’s got his head screwed on right.. waaaait-“ ..  “One of the biggest and worst lies ever told in manmade Christianity, one that John Piper subscribes to and teaches, is that there is a place of interminable torment and punishment for sinners.”  I’m sorry sir, after reading through your page for last few hours (Yes. Hours.) you come across as very well read and educated on biblical truths. How do you see past this one?  Revelation 21:8 Matthew 25:46 Psalm 9:17 2 Thessalonians 1:9 Matthew 13:50 Acts 2:27 Mark 9:43 Jude 1:7 Proverbs 15:24 Proverbs 23:14 Matthew 13:42 Matthew 25:41 Revelation 19:20 Proverbs 15:11 Matthew 16:19 2 Peter 2:4 Revelation 20:13 Matthew 10:28 Ezekiel 18:20 Yes. All verses pertaining to hell. Are you going to tell me that none of these were inspired and spoken by the Lord, and that they are just verses by mere carnal men?  I honestly would never take this much time to try to argue a point that is so obviously and unmistakably wrong, but in most other areas, you and your “team” seem pretty intelligent. Except on this one. Tell me why I’m wrong. Thanks, Megan Subject: ...
I’m Righteous Enough to Apologize for Condemning
From: Donald To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, June 24, 2016 3:45 PM Subject: All are saved Not sure how I came upon your website but I have began reading much there and to be honest I didn’t now that much theological hair-splitting existed. However; that’s not the purpose of this email. You answered someone’s question on ‘who then can be saved’. If I read your reply correctly, you indicated in so many words that all are eventually saved. In another post I read where you replied to someone’s inquiry that hell is not a literal place or it is kind of a temporary holding cell. (I may have that one wrong, I read a bunch of stuff in one sitting). My purpose here and now is to then ask you to explain Matthew 13:37-42.  Another thing I might add is: how is it that you alone have the whole council of God and the tens of thousands of others down through the centuries are all liars? Of the six hundred billion people in the world, God chose only you to receive the Spirit of Truth? If God is love; your condemnation of all that pose legitimate questions to you certainly doesn’t reflect any of that love. What happened to “love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you.” If I sound condemning I ask for your forgiveness.
