For those who believe that there is no everlasting hell, you are wrong. The scripture says so. The person above in the comments is misreading the truth. Our Body will be returned to the ground, and our souls will return to God. But then shall we be resurrected. Given a new body, and cast into the lake of fire if we be unrighteous, or risen with Jesus the Savior to be with Him and the Lord Almighty for all eternity in everlasting life if we fight the good fight here.

What to know can my body be returned to ground.

This scripture proves that people do not burn in a fiery hell. "For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return," is fairly clear.

I have been accused just lately by my step daughter that if I were a good Christian, I would help her and her husband , but their need was caused by a stupid thing they did , they have lied so much to us. We have been used so they can buy drugs, and they have lost their children too because of their habits. I think the verse refers to working the soil, not to be too proud nor lazy to work it, for you were created by GOD from it, and you will become soil again when you die. Your earthly body will return to dust. That is it.
