Once you are in Hell, its all over, the fat lady has just sang her song and Elvis has left the building!
The Mormons say that hell is closed and has been since Jesus crucifixtion. Instead they have three levels of heaven. The lowest is a re-education camp where you get to learn about Jesus and wait for someone to be necro-baptized in your name.
They cherry pick 1 Corinthians 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
to say that this is the right thing to do. Now if they bothered to read it in context
they would see that Paul was mocking the practice
28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
30And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
31I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
32If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
33Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
I'm almost embarrassed I know this stuff.
