Is there a literal hell with literal flames? The Bible indicates that there is. Are those flames physical—or something even more horrible? Must something be physical to be real? Are the soul and spirit real? The rich man said he was “tormented in this flame” and asked that Lazarus might “dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue” (Luke:16:24). There was literal flame and burning thirst. Was it physical, or worse? His physical body was decaying in the grave and only his soul and spirit were in hell.
"And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."
