I I believe that article. Do you want to take the chance and ignore it find yourself there?

I have been thinking about death alot and a really close friend of my dad and I has passed away..he did believe in god and he was a very kind,nice smart person...I really regret never visiting him in 2 years..I have no excuse he lives 15 minutes out of town...I was so selfish I could have tried twice a week to go out there before he died. If I had been reading the things I started reading today,I would have had knowledge and tools and hopefully could make him see and change his life I would have printed a few articles out and prepared myself everytime to try to help him. He killed himself with smoking because he was spiritually defreated..

I believe in God. I'm not to sure about a hell, though. God would have made us for a purpose, or at least allowed us to be made. It sounds kind of contradictory to say he would throw us away for the very passions and instincts he gave us. I think we will all know more when we meet him.

It's really interesting, the concept of Hell. It's interesting that there wasn't a concept of a fiery Hell until after Dante's Inferno.

Originally, the Greeks had a location for the Underworld that was a real scary looking cave/water system. I wonder if it was a borrowed idea (snark).

It's fascinating how much cultural things like that influence the entire image of something, isn't it? That one book - NOT a religious text so much as a piece of satire written against the church (come on, he put 3 popes in hell!) - influenced people the way it has.

While I am a kind of liberal open-minded Christian myself, I'm also fascinated by such cultural references and the mythologies of pre-Christianity religions and their similarities to one another. It's like we all have the same basic architecture, just with a different decor. Joseph Campbell pointed that out constantly, but if you get me started on him, I'll never stop.

I pointed this out once to a Catholic theology teacher (required course in the parochial HS I attended, although I was Methodist) and she told me that Christianity was real because Jesus was born of a virgin and that was singular to Christianity & Catholicism. I then showed her - honestly out of interest and trying to promote cultural awareness and open-mindedness - of the incidences of parthenogenesis in Hinduism and Greek mythology (among others). I may have ruined her day.

I also think that the Norse afterworld of Valhalla looks reeeeally similar to some peoples ideas of the Christian heaven, what with all of the gold and all.

And do I believe in hell? Not in the sense of that website, no. Nor in the sense of the men that stood with megaphones on Beale Street year after year telling everyone they're we're burning in brimstone for being out listening to blues and having a drink or two and some kick ass bbq. Do I think that the afterlife might be less pleasant for some than others, and that it is based on your actions during physical life? Yes.

I believe in God but I don't believe there is a hell as such.

Bible verses can be taken way out of context - especially if in the wrong hands!
There's a lot of fruit cakes out there who just love the idea of scaring the crap out of people.
There's that saying - believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see!

People putting that kind of stuff online doesn't concern me. I was raised religious and as much as I'm not so much now, I still have some believes. So I don't get caught up in a lot of rubbish on the net.

I won't watch the clip cause I don't trust people like that incase there's any nasty files attached!

I know what you mean about the fruitcakes, so to say. I'm from the northeast in the US, a fairly culturally forward thinking area. The first time I went down south (VA, TN, SC - basically the 'Bible belt' - and I LOVE that area and mean no disrespect to the people that live there) and was exposed to what I call the 'fire and brimstone' Christians, it scared the life out of me! Not their religious ideas, because to me they are just that - ideas. It was the people themselves. They were all about threatening people and scaring them - no God or religion I participate in will reign me in by means of intimidation!

I felt bad! LOL I really had good intentions of just showing her all the great similar mythological texts out there!

Sometimes I think Hell is right here on Earth. But then I remember that this life is merely a test everyone must go through, just as Jesus himself was tested. Our lives here are but a moment but eternity is forever.
The best thing we can do before our candle blows out is to love one another and hope that love will be returned to us.
There is no need to fear any man or any video. There is nothing new under the sun.
My advice to you kinky girlfriend, is not to watch the video, and follow your own heart.
Perhaps this experience you had with your dad's friend is getting your heart prepared for future people in your life.
Just strive to be the best you can and all will be well with you.

Yikes - think that would concern me too.
I don't understand why a religion (if genuine) feel the need to threaten and scare people into believing.
Loving and learning about God should be joyous - not the "do it or bad things will happen to you" approach.

I find religion a very touchy subject. It's probably one of the best arguement starters.

I don't believe in Hell. I think it was made up to scare the masses into behaving.

Hell is being alone because no one wants you.

Nothing in the afterlife will be worse than what I've been through on earth.

I don't believe in hell either. A "fiery pit of damnation" is very interesting, but I think there is a reason for the saying "hell on earth". I think we're living it.

I really don't like people talking about what Hell will be like. As of yet, there is no one that can prove that they've been there and come back to tell about it, so there's no way to know. Until I'm in the afterlife, I won't know. I believe in God. I believe in Heaven and I believe in Hell. I just have NO IDEA what any of it will look like or what it will be like.

Religion and faith are confusing. Frankly, if I were dying and someone printed articles off about Hell and brought them to me to "prepare" me for my afterlife, I'd have thrown them out on their arse. That's me though.

My mom died a year ago and while she didn't believe the same things I do, I wasn't about to confuse her last days with even more crap. The only thing I wanted her to know is that I was there, that I loved her, and that we were OK so it was OK to go. I don't think she's in Hell.

being an athiest I dont believe in hell or any sort of afterlife. I think It was just meant to scare people to stay on a certain religious path. There is something I don't understand about hell perhaps some of you could give me your interpretation of this.

Frist, We are the lords children and he loves us dearly, Correct? If this is true what good parent would send their children to suffer for all eternity. I know wonderful people who had children that didn't turn out quite right, and their parents wouldn't wish eternal suffering on them.

Second, Damning someone for eternity isn't going to enlighten a person into becoming a much wiser and knowledgeable person allowing them to see their wrong doing and become a truly good person. In my opinion, if I were a god I wouldn't damn people for eternity I would hold Ethic Classes.

I don't wish to offend anyone and I apologize if I do, It is not my intention to hurt anyone.

I'm stepping out of this before it becomes a debate. I refuse to enter any more debates.

I will say to @Avant-garde, I have faith but I don't understand everything that is involved with my faith, so I don't have good answers to your questions. They are good questions though. Some that I struggle with myself.

Have a good night all!

I'm not really sure what I believe. In one way I like to think "no", especially with the way some religions damn pretty much all of us. On the other hand I hate to think of the most evil and vile people get the same afterlife as someone like Mother Teresa...

In my opinion, God isn't into making anyone suffer. That's satans job.
And even when someone becomes ill or injured, I believe He only allows them to go through what He knows we can deal with.
Often we are stronger because of the things we have to deal with.

Everything happens for a reason - even if we can't figure out what that reason is.
