InQfive Lake Of Fire

0:008:10

InQfive keeps on giving us good music. Here is his second offering at CDR titled “Lake of Fire”. The Lake of Fire appears in both ancient Egyptian and Christian religion, as well as in Plato's Gorgias as a place of after-death punishment of the wicked. The phrase is used in five verses of the Book of Revelation. In the biblical context, the concept seems analogous to the Jewish Gehenna, or the more common concept of Hell. The image of the Lake of Fire was taken up by the early Christian Hippolytus of Rome in about the year 230 and has continued to be used by modern Christians. Prior to Christianity, Plato identified the Lake with Tartarus, where the souls of the wicked are tormented until it is time for them to be reborn, and where some souls are left.
