Escape From Hellcatraz
Recently, I found several "scriptures" that teach a place of eternal fiery tormant. I warn you though, they are freightening. They teach what Christians have been teaching for over a thousand years now. And god forbid, if we happen to be wrong about our beliefs (AKA Pasquels Wager).
This hub will begin with us considering one of the more hidden doctrines in religion. This would be the potential for escaping from this horrible, painful doom. How many movies have been made about lost souls wandering the Earth that have escaped hell? A recent bomb stared Nicolas Cage where he is forced to collect a set of souls who have avoided hell. It was entitled. . . . . . . .Hell Skeleton on a Cycle. . . .? or. . . . . . . .Closet Skeleton Who Smokes?? I don't know. It was such a terrible story that I am seeking a lawsuit against Hollywood for nearly boring me to death. But on to that "scripture" suggesting that people have attempted to escape hell.
Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers.
Sclading water shall be poured upon their heads, melting
their skins and that which is in their bellies. They shall
be lashed rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they
try to escape from Hell, back they shall be dragged, and
will be told: "Taste the torment of the Conflagration!
Ouch, did you read what was said will happen to unbelievers? Melting their skins? OH, this is too much. But notice. This "scripture" says that if you try to escape hell, back you go!! I guess the writers of this never heard of Clint Eastwood. We are told that he escaped out of a high security prison surrounded by freezing water with torrential currents n stuff. Why, I believe Clint could escape hell. Let's read some more sick "scriptures" believed by Christians and other religions around the world.
For disbelievers, We prepare a shameful doom. 4:37
Hell is sufficient for their burning. 4:55
Unbelievers will be tormented forever with fire. When their skin is burned off, a fresh skin will be provided. 4:56
Oh!! Come On!!
As if it isn't painful enough to burn my skin off, this god is going to provide me with another to be burned off?
I don't want more skin!!
And it says Hell is sufficient for their burning. Really, perhaps fire that burns off one's skin should have their flames increased!!? Come on now, the Sun's core is probably hotter. That'll burn the entire sinner in the smallest fraction of a second.. . . Gotchya!! There needs to be slow cooking for the ultimate torture. Let's explore some more of these. . . . . ."scriptures".
12. Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to hell. 4:115
13. Those who believe, then disbelieve, then believe and disbelieve again will never be forgiven by . . . .. 4:137
14. For the hypocrites there will be a painful doom. 4:138
So this god really hates hypocrates as well as those who can't make up their mind. Ahha Christians. Don't ya'll say that if you accept god for half a second before death you'll go to heaven? Better make up your minds now.
19. God will guide disbelievers down a road that leads to EVERLASTING hell. 4:168-169 " (CAPS are mine).
What a great god, huh?
[al-Bayyinah 98:1-8 ]
The unbelievers among the People of the Book and the pagans
shall burn for ever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest
of all creatures.
For the wrongdoers We have prepared a fire which will
encompass them like the walls of a pavilion. When they
cry out for help they shall be showered with water as
hot as molten brass, which will scald their faces. Evil
shall be their drink, dismal their resting-place.
Do you not see how those who dispute the revelation of
God turn away from the right path ? Those who have denied
the Book and the message We sent through Our apostles
shall realize the truth hereafter: when, with chains and
shackles round their necks, they shall be dragged through
scalding water and then burnt in the fire of Hell.
..The unbelievers shall endure forever the torment of Hell.
The punishment will never be lightened, and they shall be
speechless with despair.
What part of "never" don't ya'll understand? It will never stop. And notice above how much god hates whiners. They are showered with waters as hot as molton brass. (Guess god is a little weak on physics. Water would evaporate long before it got to that temperature)
Well, seems like there are several "scriptures" for the sick beliefs of hell believing Christians. They are undeniable. They aren't vague like some of the mistranslated bible versus such as:
The wicked shall be turned into hell (sheol), and all the nations that forget God.
or a number of other scriptures not speaking about a place of torture. Those above are not speaking of Sheol, Hades, Gehenna, The Lake of Fire or any of the words misunderstood to be a place of eternal torture by Christians.
So, who inspired the verses above? For the answer, let's read some more of the sick "scriptures" from their source.
3. Those who disobey Allah and his messenger will be burnt with fire and suffer a painful doom. 4:14
4. For the disbelievers and those who make a last-minute conversion, Allah has prepared a painful doom. :18
8. Allah will bestow a vast reward on those who fight in religious wars. 4:74
9. Believers fight for Allah; disbelievers fight for the devil. So fight the minions of the devil. 4:76
15. Allah will gather hypocrites and disbelievers into hell. 4:140
16. The hypocrites will be in the lowest part of hell and no one will help them there. 4:145
17. You must believe everything Allah and his messengers tell you. Those who don't are disbelievers and will face a painful doom. 4:150-151
18. For the wrongdoing Jews, Allah has prepared a painful doom. 4:160-1
So now we learn the source. Isn't it funny that all of those verses from the Quaran are similiar to what Christians have been preaching for well over a thousand years, with the exception of the one concerning last minute conversions? Where did Mohammed or whoever come up with all of that? It came from Christian teachings. But it did not come from anything in the Bible. Now compare the hell verses of the Quaran with those of the "King James". See a little difference? I do. I see one book that teaches a most horrific eternal destiney for unbelievers and another that teaches a most scriptural judgment before God is all in all. Although the latter is full of silly mistranslations in an attempt to hold on to the very worst of pagan teachings.
On a side note, I recently showed these to a Moslem on aother hub, and that person said that the language is symbolic. I see nothing symbolic about burning off one's skin and providing another (neither did another Moslem who said that this proves that it came from god because science knows that skin is needed for life. That is why another layer must be provided. Amazing). No, I haven't read any of this in context, but the verses listed seem quite literal as opposed to "the smoke of their torment will rise for the aions of the aions". Do you see a difference in the words?
Now, about escaping hell. It is abundantly clear that neither Allah nor Mohammed ever heard of Clint and his budies. They would surely be able to escape that hell.
In closing, I'll mention the big "what if you're wrong" delema thrown at us by churchies. Well, after reading the above, perhaps we should ask those hell believing "King James" Christians the very same thing. What if the Moslems are right and we are all wrong. Read those verses again from the Quaran. Scary stuff, huh. Well over a billion people in this world believe that anyone not accepting the Quaran as devinely inspired by Allah, will:
be tormented forever with fire. When their skin is burned off, a fresh skin will be provided. 4:56
So again Christians, I ask: What if you are wrong!!?
I for one, don't question the absurdity of eteral torture. I know it is not true. I know that there is no reason to believe the Quaran, if for no other reason, than for the verses listed above. But I see truths in the scriptures of God's word to be credible. Just one of these reasons concerns the blindness prophesized throughout, that we see in the modern day Babylonian churches.
Just one final statement. By believing in the hell of Christiandom, people are just prolonging the judgment they will endure before reaching the Kingdom of God. So once again, "Pasquels Wager" fails.
