How Can Christians Read "Revelation" & STILL Think that Hell = Fire?

Specifically Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire...." Hello! 'Hell' gets thrown into the lake of fire! And ... now I see what it is (all glory to G-d). Earth, falling into the Sun. And the rockets our children load our dead bodies into (to be resurrected when the tools become available) will be Christ's 'angels' (all glory to G-d). Yeah, 'Hell' is where we will be (the dead Earth) after we die. All of us. Our only chance is progeny (all glory to G-d); THAT is why people are so-urged to have so many kids---it increases the probability that our personal souls will have life again (all glory to G-d)! Good couple of 'revelations' I found when asking this question about "Revelation" (all glory to G-d). Maybe THAT is why people though 'Hell' was 'the land of fire & pointy things'---so that I would see why we need to build lots of rockets &/or get to work on some resurrecting-equipment to bring our dead relatives to Heaven with us (all glory to G-d)! You agree? How not?

If the Only way I van get to heaven is by having children then I was correct. I Knew I was evil at age 7 and that's when I chose Never to have kids. As for hell , I never thought it was all fire and brimstone. I think of it this way. Picture your worse nightmare and times it by ten. That is hell. It is different for all of us. I do not believe All souls go to hell first. Many come back to earth in another form. Others to heaven or hell.

I do not agree, but you're very creative! It's my belief that ultimate reality will not include any imperfection at all.. being as God is life (who, or what else would/could be? "In the beginning, God".) And if He were not Perfection, then He too would fade/fall apart as all imperfect things do, after all to fade is to not be perfect(ion). God says He will make all things new (Rev 21:5). - Colossians 1:20 says "And God was pleased for him to make peace by sacrificing his blood on the cross, so that all beings in heaven and on earth would be brought back to God." (Pleased with the cross, poignant enough to pierce, eventually, every heart!) - And here's how the King's englishe puts it "And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." (KJ version) - - "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new..."
