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?

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

I am 60 years old, living in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. I am a weak Christian, still struggling with sins since I “accepted Jesus as my Savior” in 1993. Thanks to the grace of God, I found your site last year and have read some of your doctrines which are helpful to me.  I have struggled with the sin of watching porn movies for recent  years. A few years ago,  I deleted all the data in my laptop and was free for some time before I was entangled in the same sin again by copying porn movies from web to my laptop again. Thanks to God’s grace again through reading and practicing several of your teachings, two weeks before,  I managed to delete all the data from my laptop and until now my laptop is still free from any images of porn. I experienced the power of God to prevent me to watch porn movies. Before beautiful, sexy women, I am tempted to watch more  but I do not sin. Praise God for His sin restricting grace in me. I have been attending to my present church (a denomination of Pentecostal church system) whose   pastor is a woman since 1996. Since 2010, the woman pastor taught our people about a kind of  grace which says that Jesus has done all for us to fulfill the Law; therefore we just believe in Him; we shall not do anything to obey the Ten Commandments because if we do that, we add o...
The Limitations of Man's Wisdom
Here is the Facebook correspondence I began with Shiv Chopra on his book Four.Five on October 2, 2016: From Victor Hafichuk: Hi Shiv, I've finally completed Four.Five - a tough go for me, I must admit. I found the detailed parallel of the story of Noah and the human embryology fascinating, but it seems the significance was different for each of us. Thus, these questions, to start, if you're willing:  What do you have to say in general or in summary of your book? What are your conclusions that you might not necessarily wish to divulge to the general public for various reasons? Do you believe in a First Cause? Do you believe in cross-species [macro] evolution? I don't know that you were very clear, or I just missed it. Do you believe the story of Noah, THE FLOOD, and the ark is mythological (fictional), merely an allegory of human gestation, or do you believe it to be a record of an actual, historical event, which nonetheless represented another aspect or "department" of reality, what I would call "creation"? Of course, you likely know where I stand on these matters but I'd like to hear where you stand. When I have confirmation from you on these points, I'd like to send you a very brief summation of my thoughts on Four.Five.  However, I'd like to converse by email, if you don't mind. I find it much easier on that medium for correspondence. Thank you, Shiv. I wish you well. Victor Hafichuk's Reply at 2:43 pm: So please give me your email addres...

And why would you apologize to us if you’re speaking the truth? You apologize because you’re not speaking the truth, Margaret. You’re a man-pleaser. “How can you believe, you who receive honor from one another and do not seek the honor that comes from God only?” (John 5:44 MKJV) “As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:9-10 ESV).
