Damnation

Damnation to hell is the punishment of the Christian God for persons with unredeemed[?] sin. Damnation is a primary motivator for conversions to Christianity.

One conception is of eternal suffocating heat, being taunted by demons for all eternity.

Another conception, derived from the scripture about Gehenna is simply that people will be discarded (burned), as being unworthy of preservation by God.

In both conceptions, Jesus Christ is accepted as the advocate, (lawyer) able by perfect sacrifice to atone[?] for one's sin. All that's required is to accept His advocacy. This acceptance is said to constitute Salvation from sin, and therefore from damnation.
