Heaven and Hell

How can an all-loving God torture people forever? What happens to babies who aren't baptized? How can this be fair? If you have struggled with the notion of Heaven and Hell, you'll be relieved to know, this common notion is not biblical. When we let the Bible speak for itself, we find that God is consistent, fair, and loving.

Several verses in the Bible talk about a spirit of man that is described much differently from what many religions envision as an immortal soul. What is this spirit in man?
Did Jesus intend the parable of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31) to give us a real-time view of the state of the dead now, either in heaven or an ever-burning hell? How does this parable fit with the teachings of other scriptures about the state of the dead?
