to purify them from sins they kept doing in life ignoring other people rights..
what do you think , seriously ?
I think God fires some people because they're doing a lousy job.
Yes, if they can't do their job, they deserved to get fired.
I think there is some truth in it. I do believe that the entire Earth, and all its inhabitants at some point will be burned up. The same way loggers burn area's of the forest or Mother Nature does herself. To refine the earth. (earth also meaning people... made from the Earth etc.. dirt, you know what I mean)
I am certainly doubtful that God would burn people alive in it... but then again if there are people alive during this time and everything is getting burned up... well you would have to go someway.
Really I think it is a metaphor for being made new.
In Ayurveda the Indian medicine system we are made of fire(pita), that is one of the five elements .
People would, in His name, but God wouldn't.
I think it is absurd to believe that a deity so incredibly advanced enough to create a universe and living beings would find it reasonable to torture people in an everlasting fire for finite and sometimes petty offenses; such as simply not believing in him/her/it.
I myself am an "infidel" because I do not accept that any such being exists, but if I thought one did, I certainly would not believe it capable of such abhorrent behavior. I would be morally superior to such a being as would most of us. Punishments, like the ones that us mere mortals employ, are meant as a corrective measures. Hell is simply sadistic vengeance.
People need to start thinking for themselves and stop believing in childish fairy-tales that they were indoctrinated to believe as children. Hell is a scare tactic, period.
We are in hell , we have fire in us and outside of us, we need that big ball of fire (sun) to live.
So is heaven. Apparently an omniscient, omnipresent invisible entity will not let you in if you don't "obey" him/her/it. Sounds more like Hitler than a god, unless the god is Zeus!
I think we waste too much time trying to figure out why God does what he does. Truth is, if there is a God, and all we know about him, and His Greatness and all is true, then he can do whatever He wants, and all we gotta do is shut up. He owes us no explanation. I know it isn't a comforting thought, but thats just the way it is.
True he has made us and owns us and I have absolutely no problem with it, he loves me more than anyone could ever love me and I love him the same more than anyone or anything
only people who hate God and everything about him will have a problem with the idea of hell-
My 2 cents:
If you believe in God, and have been "saved", then there's nothing to worry about....
But if you choose not to believe, then get the hot dogs, marshmallows, and campfire stories ready.....
Your beliefs are your choice... The freedom of choice is our greatest asset.

Why are we here on Earth ?What am i supposed to do here ?that's a spiritual kind of question. But it's haunting me since morning. Everyday we wake up, go to work and then get to sleep. Is that's only the life ? Only this much ? What is your opinion ?

If the bible is the word of God, and God is all powerful why did he choose such a bonkers way to produce it? It seems odd that an all powerful entity would choose to possess the minds of multiple men, over multiple generations. These men would record their visions or accounts, some...

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

Does God ever appear in human form on earth?As today - in modern times.

The reality is that we are alone in this eternal, dark, and cold universe. Why can't we accept this reality? Death is the end. There is no heaven, and there is no hell. We do not need religion in order to have a purpose in life. The purpose is to survive and not harm...

Why do Christians get so bent out of shape when you tell them the bible is just a book?Many versions of this text are different, book order different, passages missing, especially ones referring to the so-called resurrection (not found in the older bibles.) The books are clearly written by...
