Isa 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me

Well, I think that would be God talking here, and I think He would know all about Hell since He created it.
And exactly what part of your being is supposed to go to heaven / hell?? If it's your soul, then I wonder why some 'bad' souls are going to 'heaven' and some 'good' souls are going to 'hell'...
Your spirit is what goes, while our flesh is mortal, our spirit is immortal and will live forever, either in Heaven or Hell.
I am glad that God does not define "good" and "bad" the same way you do.
If the only deciding factor is whether you accept JC as savior in this life, then it doesn't really matter how much 'good' or 'evil' you've done as to where you go. If you are reincarnated (some Christians believe, others don't) then which lifetime is the one that counts?
I have never
met a Christian that believes in reincarnation. God says that it is appointed man to die once and then he is judged.
And can you get kicked out of heaven for being bad? And can you get out of hell with good behavior?
There is no bad in Heaven and there is no good in Hell. And no, you can not get our of Hell on good behavior. There are no second chances after your die. God speaks of eternal life and eternal damnation. Last time I checked, eternal meant forever and ever.
Can you ever 'get used to' hell? Even when you are in terrible pain, you eventually get where you can live with it. I wonder if fire and brimstone and torture and screaming is the same way.
Would it really matter if you started to get used to it? Seperation from God is punishment enough even with out fire and brimstone.
Some people live hell on earth. No one to love them, no one to hear their cries at night, nowhere to sleep. It hardly seems fair to send them to hell if everyone in their community is Muslim and they have rejected the Christian faith.
Or what if the Muslims are right and you are wrong and you are the one going to hell? That will suck for you won't it!?! And that's exactly what they believe. Somewhere out there is a website for Islam where someone is asking what souls like yours are going to be doing in 'hell'.
The Koran rejects the notion of redemption; salvation depends on a man's actions and attitudes. However, tauba
or repentance, can quickly turn an evil man toward the virtue that will save him. So Islam does not hold out the possibility of salvation through the work of God but invites man to accept God's guidance.
On final day of reckoning every man will account for what he has done, and his eternal existence will be determined on that basis: "Every man's actions have we hung around his neck, and on the last day shall be laid before him a wide-open book" (17.13).
Muslims recognize that different individuals have been given different abilities and various degrees of insight into the truth. Each man will be judged according to his situation, and every man who lives according to the truth to the best of his abilities will achieve heaven. However, infidels who are presented with the truth of Islam and reject it will be given no mercy.
The Koran has vivid descriptions of both heaven and hell. Heaven is depicted in terms of worldly delights, and the torments of hell are shown in lurid detail. Muslims disagree as to whether those descriptions are to be taken literally or not.
So Danny, unless you are Muslim, you are going to Hell also.
