A Few Thoughts On The Whole "What If You Go To Hell?" Scenario

We have all had that conversation with friends, family, and even in our own minds have pondered the validity of the "What if you go to Hell?" scenario.



Images of devils, demons, exposed human flesh to flame, faces twisted in torturous poses, evil looking imps in observant reveries of delight. The overall themes being rejection, exile, physically unbearable pain, retribution, and guilt. Through many belief systems, Hell is a common thread that most agree upon.…

How Low Can You Go? (Part II in Places to Visit Series)

“The sins of the fathers shall be visited upon his sons unto the 7th generation”—Wording may change, depending on which of the hundreds of biblical conversions available.

I was just a kid when I first saw limbo dancers bend back a scoot themselves under a thin pole nearly walking…

Heaven or Hell (First in Series)

Do we go directly to heaven or hell when we die?

This question is of no importance to readers in this community, but for Christians it should be an interrogative of great concern.

While it seems a straightforward query it seems that Christian scholars cannot provide a "yes" or "no" answer. Instead,…

Whitewashing Hell: or why belief in Hell is still not very nice

There has been some discussion about the topic of Hell over at Psychology Today recently. (I have a blog there by the way in case anyone's interested!) You might even say it's a hot topic! (Sorry.) Psychologist Nathan Heflick wrote about the psychological aspects of the subject…

Hell

hell is a place of suffering and punishment for those who do wrong, even tho as long as you are saved nothing u can do can get you in hell.

Someone who rapes and murders people every night for 20 years straight before getting caught and and put in prison for 20 years. he gets out after serving his time, but within 3 years he goes right back in for killing 10 people. Then this time he is given the death sentence will go to hell right? he will pay for his crime for what he did and will be… Continue

More Infighting Among Christian Sects

Pastor Rob Bell, one of the new rising rock stars of Christianity, has stirred up a hornets’ nest with his book Love Wins. In today’s article by Cathy Lynn Grossman of USA TODAY, Bell exposes the new kinder, gentler Christianity that has emerged as a reaction to the hellfire and brimstone alternative offered by most evangelical writers. In his book, he turns conventional Christian theology on its…

Jesus on Hell

I have sometimes encountered Christians who argue that the concept of a fiery Hell was not part of Jesus' original teaching; rather that it was introduced some centuries later by Church theologians. For easy reference, I have collected the following.

Death

Death to an Atheist



In most mythologies or belief structures the main goal of its design is to assure the believer that they may physically die but that is not the end of them. There is a concept of a soul, a living soul that will never cease to be. All these beliefs systems take away fear of death and replace it with a feeling of anticipation and acceptance.



Many believers of such creative fancies believe that life, physical life, is a lesser existence, and that worldly… Continue

Insurance Against Hell

Insurance against Hell looks to be a gag webiste I think... or someone just looking for money. My point is they have an awesome shirt for sale here.

If you actually want it, I am not sure if this can be trusted. So look about it first.

From Not My God



Here in the Not My God penthouse, I focus on stories of atheists that are particularly difficult and moving for the purposes of illustration and because this obviously makes for a more interesting book. So if anyone out there thinks I cherry-pick the extremes, yes, I am, but that’s sort of the point.



I found this story on Dawkins’s Converts Corner.



“For many years I was a victim of… Continue

Have A Great All Hallows Eve

Just felt like wishing all my fellow A|N Members a joyous Samhain and one "hell" of a night tonight. Even though my city/street is rather "dead" on this holiday, I still enjoy the good memories I have of years past where I'd either go Trick Or Treating or scare the living piss outta other people who dare tred upon my doorstep. First they get Tricked into think I'm a lifeless decoration then after I do a low growling Metal voice shout, they get a Treat for not running away.… Continue

If Its the Word Of "God" Why Do People Do the Talking?

Really though. If God truly did exist, and truly wanted all of us to be aware of his presence it would be pretty easy. I mean he is omnipotent right? Yet, the biggest crime one can commit in reference to the Bible is denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Its the one surefire ticket straight to Hell. All God would have to do is show up again like in the good old days, perform a few miracles and I would be satisfied. But unless that happens I'll… Continue

Hell House

I started out watching The Root of All Evil on youtube tonight. When I got to the part where Dawkins is witnessing a church's plans to put together a Hell House, I had to stop watching, to think. Things just hit too close to home for me. I found a documentary following the creation and execution of a hell house, and rented it to watch. It brought back some memories, things I had tried to forget. I found myself breathing with great difficulty throughout the film. (If you aren't sure what a hell… Continue
