Revelation 20:10 Satan and Hell

There are those that believe hell (or hades) is a torturous place for evil people. Several so-called Christian religions have taught this, including the Catholic Church of which I used to be a member. Even to this day, there are depictions that I have seen and descriptions I have heard that demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge about this matter.

For example, three common misconceptions I hear frequently are that the devil is the one doing the tormenting and he has resided there longer than anyone else. The devil himself is not affected by the flame of hell. With only one scripture, I can dispel all three spurious beliefs! Revelation 20:10 says: “And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulfur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet already were; and they will be tormented* day and night forever and ever.”

In case you think: “That is just your version of the Bible,” you can read other translations here. So now that the “translation” issue is settled, consider these points:

The “wild beast” and the “false prophet” are said to already be in hell before Satan was thrown there.

Satan is also being “tormented” in hell.

There is no mention of Satan himself torturing others. (You will not find any scripture that supports such an idea.)

As for what hell really is, that is not the intent of this post, however, you might be interested in this article.

Is this news to you? Start reading the Bible yourself to see what it really says so you can stop believing the lies you have been and are being told.
