In the Bible, they often appear in reference to the fate of the unfaithful. "Brimstone", the archaic name for sulfur,[1] evokes the acrid odor of volcanic activity. The term is also used, sometimes pejoratively, to describe a style of Christian preaching that uses vivid descriptions of judgment and eternal damnation to encourage repentance. Biblical references[edit] Can you explain why there is “no more sea” in Revelation 21:1? Most students who approach the book of Revelation from the normal or literal method of interpretation understand the words following the statement about the new heaven and new earth, “and there is no longer any sea” to simply mean that because of the changes in atmospheric and human conditions will be so different water as we know it today will not be needed.

Can you explain why there is “no more sea” in Revelation 21:1?

The term “sea” is the Greek “thalassa” which is used of all forms of water—the oceans, lakes, etc. There will be a river of water (22:1f) that flows through the New Jerusalem, but this is the only other source of water that is mentioned.

The problem is that we do not always follow our compass. Atrocities big and small are committed every day across the world. Engaging in negative actions will never produce positive results; if you harm someone you can not expect that good karma will float your way. It’s a lot like planting a tomato seed; you shouldn’t expect to get an orange tree. We all know that good intentions and virtuous actions will plant seeds for future happiness.
