I notice a lot of bickering back and forth in Hub Pages about God and such but the thing that gets me most is how much those that quote and stand on certain scripture don't really even understand them fully themselves...
The latest comments I read were about Hell. If a person ever does a simple word study on the subject of hell they would learn that being thrown into the lake of fire is to be 'burned UP... the 'SECOND DEATH' -- which is a complete destruction of something; first the body (the first death) and then the soul (SECOND DEATH). Only the ALREADY ETERNAL beings will be tormented day and night 'forever' (which the word 'forever' needs another word study too because it doesn't mean forever like we use and understand it today).
I suppose you're not stating this as 'truth'? If you are,you're no better than the others
The idea here is that most of the 'rants' and bickering between people is done because their arguments are really over theology and the 'ideas' that they have in their heads, rather than doing a simple word study or looking at historical events (which are plain and simple facts).
maybe hp will allow each hubber to start a new thread on religion.
"Another day ,good morning hell,
What lessons for today I cannot tell."
We are in hell and paradise or heaven is another dimension which one goes to on death.
Its only someone who knows god , an enlightened one can truly understand the meaning of the scriptures.Its the experience which counts the most and every master will tell you that you need to experience this truth for yourself.
Love is master of all, greater than all.
Love is not a title.
The idea that there's a fabulous place waiting for us beyond this 'hell' we are supposedly in now lends itself well to justification for any number of crimes against the environment.
I think we're supposed to be stewards of this place. Does anyone think we'll get judged on how we treated this earth and its other (non-human) inhabitants?
If my grandfather loans me his car and tells me that someday -if I'm good- I'll get a better, fancier car I'm not going to just take a whiz in the loaner and fill it with trash in hopes that I'll be moving up to the better ride soon. Wouldn't you think there's a bit of a test (I know religious types like tests, no?) in such a situation?

Maybe it's just me, but when I write about something which may bring about a huge amount of conversation, I consider it to be a waste of time to limit the response it may garner. I had the courage to put my words...

I feel that believing in one religion is not practical. Likewise, there is no way of knowing if there is one God, or any God for that matter. I'm not saying there's not either, though I do trust science it only goes so...

Why can't everyone be entitled to their own beliefs, without someone from a different religion insulting the others beliefs and religion?

If God is Love, there is no place like hell to punish transgressors...If we do good things because we fear God will torture us with the furnace of fire if we didnt, then God is no longer God of Love and Justice...
