Material from Hades[edit]

I have inserted without changing it this text from the relevant section of the mature article Hades here, in hopes that a knowledgable and responsible adult will edit it into the text. In this\of the part "Hades in Christianity" into Hades in Christianity, which had almost the same size, but slightly different content". The summary was misleading, as comparison of the present opening text with the "slightly different" main body shows. We don't cannibalize Wikipedia articles. I shall come back in a week's time and see how this is progressing.--Wetman (talk) 21:56, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I suppose there is a misunderstanding. I did not only copy and paste the text but integrated it in parts in the existing text here. You will see this if you really read the text. So there is no need of the part "Hades in Christianity" in the article "Hades" any more. The problem was, that the some topic existed in two variations at two places. So it was not an act of cannibilization but of necessary consolidation. But please feel free to improve the text! --Alambra (talk) 10:39, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps not quite true. The interested reader may judge for oneself whether or not this dekleted text is actually "integrated" in any meaningful part into the article as it currently stands. This Alambra is repeatedly deleting this comprehensive, sourced and neautral text at Hades as well. It may be time to report Alambra. What do others think? I'd rather not get further involved with this monkeybusiness, if I can help it. --Wetman (talk) 06:45, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Hades as a character[edit]

This article only appears to make mention of Hades as a place, whereas Revelation 6:8 states that Hades "followed behind" Death. What does that mean? --Sk8a H8a (talk) 20:52, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Figurative language, I would say, as in Rev 20:14, where Death too is spoken of as thrown into the lake of fire. Lima (talk) 04:13, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Are you saying that this bit of the Bible is not literally true?? --Sk8a H8a (talk) 16:46, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Sk8a H8a, the passage which you mentioned most likely refers to those currently in Hades will be thrown into the Lake of Fire after "Death" has been thrown into the Lake of Fire. Lima's statement that this is simply figurative does not explain what the figure of speech really means. Most people who say these things are "figurative language" are trying to dismiss the truth in the text so that they are not accountable to it or so they do not have to give it credibility while allowing themselves to believe the things they prefer in the text. It's intellectual dishonesty and, for the sake of intellectual honesty and truth, should not be heeded. 11:02 March 23, 2015

Possible Satan relations[edit]

Because Satan is sometimes referred to Hades, or hell itself, we should merge this into Satan in Christianity. Gary "Roach" Sanderson (talk) 00:45, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
