This is the Truth Network. Monday through Friday, Matt takes calls from all around the world on his radio show. We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top 6.

Number 6. What is the difference between the lake of fire and hell? Hell is thrown into the lake of fire. There's different ideas of what hell is. It's a place of the dead, a place of the abode of the dead, a place of discomfort. And then ultimately, it is thrown into the lake of fire, and that's the cast out of the outer darkness. It's not an easy thing to say, well, this is exactly what it is.

Number 5. The Greek word for whoever is hos. It's not there in the Greek in John 3.16. What it actually says is paz hapastum, all the believing one.

That's the literal Greek. A lot of people have no clue about this. Well, I don't understand all the believing one as that person who made the choice to believe. Wait, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. Well, you do the hold on, hold on, but I'm sharing as strongly and as adamantly as you, that I understand that in fight intimately with the Lord, I know the Savior, and I know Him as my Savior. Okay, okay, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha. Let me ask you a question. Let me ask you a question. Let me ask you a question.

Let me ask you a question here, okay. Well, you just deny God's word and your rebellion is what you're doing and you're not listening. I'm trying to help you, then you need to listen. Okay. I'm not trying to force you to do anything. I'm trying to get you to listen for a second. You don't want to listen. Okay. Well, she's obviously not someone who wants to hear what the word of God actually says.

Number four. Second Corinthians six, about being unequally yoked. My understanding was I was always talking about being married.

Somebody told me it can refer to business practices, starting a business with the number. Yeah, it can mean that too. I had an offer from someone a year or two ago to work with them with an unbeliever. And I didn't because of this verse. That's just my understanding of it. We certainly should not marry unbelievers.

And to be very, very careful with going into business partnership with an unbeliever. Now, to be unequally yoked, there's different contexts about that and what it means. And unequally yoked, a yoke is when you have cattle or you have horses, whatever it is, you know, like ox.

And you have a yoke that goes over their necks and if they're unequally yoked, then they don't work right. So it seems to be the very least forbidden marriages with unbelievers. The very least, it means that.

Number three. So then how far do we go into it in business deals? Well, it's a problem because let's say I want to get a mortgage from my house and I need to deal with unbelievers to do this. And I entered a contract with an entity, a bank that can provide the mortgage.

Let's say the bank promotes CRT, for example, and the wokeness. Then what do we do? I'm sorry, I can't do it. Well, don't get a house. So it's difficult to apply this in every situation. Generically speaking, we know it means marriage. I do marriages every now and then. I won't marry a believer and an unbeliever. I just won't do it. One-on-one business deals with an unbeliever.

I won't do that either. And then as you move further up the chain, you're trying to figure things out, it gets more and more gray. And then it's up to the individual to decide what to do at that time.

Number two. So I recently just lost my devout Mormon grandfather. I'm just struggling with where he is right now, where Mormonism says he is.

He's in the top tier, very in the temple, all those things. As far as in Mormon, my grandma and my grandpa cross off all the list. That really kind of grandparents you see, they're in their 90s, you know, that 90s generation of Mormons that's still alive right now. And so you want me to tell you where he is biblically?

As tough as that might be. Yeah, before my grandpa died, he said, because he knows I'm going to hell because I denounced Joseph Smith. And it was a really sad moment because my grandpa's never really disappointed in me, except for, you know, this was a big disappointment in his life to have like grandchildren fall away. And that's all he ever wanted to talk about was Joseph Smith and Jesus Christ. And he believed in Joseph Smith, that Joseph Smith and him are going to come to hell and come get me.

Number one. You know, I had a bishop say that too, like, I'll come get you. I'm going to sit on the 12 tribes and as your bishop, like, I'll come get you. There's no one coming to get my grandpa, though.

If he's in hell, he's in hell forever. Like, I'm just wondering what's the point of this grief and this grief process and really tangible. And I had such peace and Mormonism, you know, it was a bigger, better world.

I had music, I had my own planet. I can go read my journals and explain. But now I wish I could explain it better today. J.C., I wish I had real comforting words for you. But all I can tell you is the truth. The real words are comforting to me.

The real words are comforting, but the real is comforting. Well, if he died believing in Mormonism officially, then he's in hell forever. There is no hope in Mormonism. I don't say that with pleasure. I don't say it to be mean. It's grief.

There's a human being who has denied the true living God and has entered into eternity, having denied the true God. There's no hope. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio.
