Q. I accept and understand that at the moment of death your soul goes either to heaven or hell. I understand the rewards for the faithful believers in heaven. But what is the purpose of resurrecting the unbelievers bringing them up from Hell. Just to judge them and send them back to hell? Can you clarify this for me.
A. In the Bible, Hell is a temporary place of torment where the spirits of dead unbelievers wait for their ultimate judgment. At the resurrection of the dead they’ll be judged and sent to their permanent destiny, the lake of fire. Rev. 20:11-15 describes this and shows death and hades (hell) being thrown into the Lake of Fire.
