Judgment of the Nations Not Following Yahweh

"Today is the day of salvation" (Lk 16:19-31, 2Cor 6:2) and "It is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgement" (Heb.9:27), leaving no room for "a second chance", reincarnation, or purgatory, reincarnation. While passages such as Acts 24:11-15 suggest a resurrection of both the righteous and wicked for the sole purpose of judgement, Romans 6:23 clarifies that the wages of sin is death (i.e. the grave). Manuscript evidence likewise confirms that "hell", as found in the Apostolic Scriptures, is properly translated either sheol (the grave) or gehenna (the valley outside of Yahrushalayim where the bodies of criminals were burned during the first century C.E.) The literal valley or lake of fire at the end of days, in contrast, is reserved for eternal punishment of non-mortal beings such as hashatan, the beast, false prophet (Rev 19:20, 20:3,10), and other fallen angels or demonic forces (2Pe 2:4, Jude 6).
