    You mean in the lake of fire. Hell is the grave  

    Hebrews 12:29 KJV — For our God is a consuming fire.

    Souls are physical and weigh 21 grams. Whenever a man dies, scientists weigh him a moment before death then one moment after death he weighs 21 grammes less.

    Your body and soul can burn in Hell forever, if and only if you don't have Jesus as your Savior.

    Mathew 10:28

    " And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

    Here is the Truth about the only living God and our eternal destiny.We are all sinners and we rightfully deserve Hell. 

    But, there is a way to Heaven.Jesus said, " I AM THE WAY,THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE"

    There is a Living God(God - The Father,God - The Son,God - The Spirit) who made Heaven and Earth. 

    How to be sure of being saved or going to Heaven?

    1) Believe in the One True God(God - The Father,God - The Son,God - The Spirit) and accept Christ ALONE(not self-righteousness, not Mary, not Saints, not religion, not sacraments) as your personal savior.

    2) You have a new heart and new desires. A truly Born-Again believer is a new creation and will have the natural desire to love God and hate sin. They will be sorry when they sin and cant keep enjoying sin as before.

    they will not burn ,, they will pain forever, if the soul burned your pain would be gone, it's kept alive to be tortured.

    The soul is the living being, body and spirit together.  Only spirits are in hell.  Clearly, the flames of hell are figurative.  Fire cannot hurt nor harm an immortal spirit.  The point is that hell is so bad that it gets the point across, even to disembodied spirits -- who after all have limited senses compared to ours.  Why represent the punishment in Hell as fire?  Because fire hurts, and people understand that.

     First let's understand what hell is. Some Bible translations use the word “hell” for the Hebrew word “Sheol” and the matching Greek word “Hades,” both of which refer to the common grave of mankind. (Psalm 16:10; Acts 2:​27) Many people believe in a fiery hell, as shown in the religious artwork accompanying this article. However, the Bible teaches otherwise.Those in hell are unconscious and so cannot feel pain. “There is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol.”​—Ecclesiastes 9:​10. God does not even contemplate eternal torment. The idea that he would punish people in hellfire is contrary to the Bible’s teaching that “God is love.”​—⁠1 John 4:8; Jeremiah 7:​31.

    Hell is not literally fire, requiring fuel and oxygen. Fire is part of the physical universe. Hell exists outside of the physical universe. Fire is used a description of Hell because being in it is the most painful thing we can experience on Earth. Actually, being in Hell will be infinitely worse than being in fire.

    Neither are correct. To find the truth of what happens to us when we die, the best source to search for the answers is in the Bible.  

    The SOUL is in fact our physical bodies. There’s no such thing that the soul comes out the your body when we die. When we die, our soul dies because the soul is the physical body, the person itself. For example, the Bible says Adam was created with a living soul. It does not say that Adam was given a soul, but that it’s a soul. After the Flood, the Bible says eight souls survived. 

    HELL is a another false doctrine. God never told Adam and Eve their souls were going to come out of their bodies and be tormented in a fiery torment/hellfire. God told them they were going to die, become non existent if they sinned.  

    Hell as in hellfire and a place of torment does not exist. That’s one of the worst lies many religions have taught for centuries. It’s not biblical. Every time the bad translation of Hell is mentioned in some Bible versions, think of it with the correct translation “the Grave.”

    In the Book of Revelation, it says all those in Hades, Hell, the Grave (depends on the Bible version you have) will come out to a future resurrection: Revelation 20:13 “And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave (Hell in some versions) gave up the dead in them...”

    Jesus said “...all those in their memorial tombs will come out out.” John 5:28,29.

    Hell is going to be a physical realm of great suffering. Souls reincarnate into hell and get entangled with new bodies.
