    Revelation 21:
    22
    But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
    23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
    24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings
    of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
    25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there).
    26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.
    27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

    Revelation 22:
    14
    Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the
    tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
    15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters,
    and whoever loves and practices a lie.

    How will they feel, when confronted with an eternity apart from the City of God?
    Banished to outer darkness, with nobody to blame, just their own decisions.


    Matthew 25:30
    And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness.
    There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Unprofitable Servant - sounds like most christians I know.
    Matthew 8:12 confirms it:
    But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    All those unilluminated Outer Court Christians out there -
    Those that refuse to grow up into the fulness of Jesus.
    No fasting, no praying in the Spirit etc.

    Is that to say if we don't fast, we don't go to heaven?

    Also, would OP considering praying in the spirit to be speaking in tongues?
    Plenty of Christians do neither.

    Yes. That is sadness and anger. Self-torment.

    That is what I concluded it was.

    I've often thought this movement has such a following because it makes people feel extra special to pretend they have a gift, but being so extra special they are the only ones going to heaven is a bit much.

    I would also like to ask Available Light
    If he could show us scripture proving not praying in tongues or not fasting, will send us in hell?

    The only people who don't go to heaven are those who reject God as their savior.
    Those people are already in Hell. After the first death, then all the distractions of life end.
    The first death is the Judgment. No more distractions like beer and pizza.
    And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness.
    There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    And no pizza.

    People don't 'go to Hell' is you say, they're already in Hell- Hades. Try finding a scripture about 'Going to Hell'.

    By, that's all they need to do, are you including doing all Jesus says we must do, as in doing good and not evil for instance?

    Damnationists ignore Romans 11:32 too -
    For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

    You might figure that out since Jesus said, "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND" - Matthew 4:17

    Then you are going to continue with the criptics and not answer the question?

    No good sense has it.

    Now prove your point, and remember, criptic answers may sound all mysterious and cool like, but they don't answer the questions.

    For whatever it means to you, there is the expression "cast into".
    Matthew 18:
    8
    And if thy hand or thy foot causeth thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee: it is good
    for thee to enter into life maimed or halt, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into
    the eternal fire.

    9 And if thine eye causeth thee to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is good for thee
    to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire.

    The Nordic name 'Hell' was placed on Gehenna in Matthew 18, like Mark 9. Gehenna was burning dump outside Jerusalem - seen any burning bodies there lately?
    Next . .
