    Yes. In fact, hell is just a state of mind (/being). It isn't a place, per se... Although that analogy helps us grasp the idea of being separate from God. I don’t think hell last forever, even in death. And heaven doesn’t have to be permanent either… but I’m sure going through hell allows us to appreciate the alternative. When you’re outside of time, it’s eternal if you want it to be. It’s duration is malleable and indefinite.

    What makes you think there is a hell?   Somebody tell you about it?   If there is a hell, then it is the result of people's thoughts.  Well, maybe not 'people' but the result of thought by something. 

    You can't love something you fear.  It is an impossibility.   Love God yet fear Him/Her/It.  Can't be done.    Fear, in all its manifestations it seems, is an absence of Love.   So this business of 'Would people still love God if there wasn't a hell?' infers that one is forced to be good out of fear. 

    As William Shakespeare said, "The quality of mercy is not strained."  Mercy, compassion, love - these are inherent.  Once we begin to shed our fears our true self (which is infinite love, infinite joy and infinite compassion) comes out of its own accord.

    Its all about faith and trust, every one has its own point of view, so as if talking about me,  i will must love God, because either there is no hell or heaven, but we are healthy, happy, has everything just because of God so we always love and thank of that almighty.

    My dear generalbratbimbo.

    Are you not aware of the difference between fear and love?
    Religious wackos seem to have a problem distinguishing them.

    It's like dysfunctional women in abusive relationships -- they are abused, but "I can't leave him -- I LOVE him".

    You are a typical sheep.  I am praying for Scooter to kick you to the curb.  Hopefully, he deserves better.

    BTW, you said it all:  "...I'm a true believer".  Unfortunately so are billions of others.  What has it gotten you?

    If there was no hell for some;there would be no heaven for others.In our life after death in the new heaven,no such thing will exist.
