Why is hell such a HOT topic on hubpages?
Even I have a hub on hell.
Great question! In our faith, we don't believe in Hell, so I just going to take a shot at an answer for this.
Everybody is worried it exists...and they think they have a possibility of going there. And they want to be prepared...or at least get baptized or converted.
That is my humble opinion.
The beauty of Hell is the retribution we hope falls upon our enemies...our hated opponents. The sad truth, however, is that the draw is completely mythological...even in the biblical record...Dante's Comedy was the introduction of a fiery end for humanity--but it sure works for ministers of religious ridiculousness.
I am glad the tradition I follow does not have an eternal hell. I think hel is such a hot topic because there are many people afraid of getting burned.
Any controversial topic is popular. Whether it be religion, politics, education, movie reviews.
I guess I am falling behind. I had better crank it up and write a hub on hell.
I guess I would say, fear. People who believe in hell are afraid they might end up there, and people who don't believe in hell are afraid that they should believe in it. For me, personally, I would rather take time talking about the wonders of heaven than the dangers of hell. Although the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and therefore necessary, I think that it is so much more persuasive to point out how wonderful God is rather than try to scare people.
Hope you are well!
Come on MilesArmbruster, catch up and get a hub on hell. Yes, the beauty of heaven is a much more effective motivator. Thanks for your input as always.
fear of god the beginning of wisdom? Really? Accepting god & exploring & expanding our minds R the only beginnings toward real wisdom and enlightenment.UR not only behind in ur HP topics.Fear serves us no purpose, nor does fantasy.
Here is a wonderful very short video that answers your question about hell by a priest. He has hit the nail on the head. The ignorance of humanity is astounding.
Maybe the HubPages powers-that-be could give hell its own category right after health. HellPages.
Because it is a main topic in life. In the end all of us will either go to Heaven or Hell.
Fire and brimstone, cam85. We can't do without it! lol

If you were God, and had the power to forgive or condemn whomever you chose, would you let people go to Hell? Would there be a single person you would not forgive?If your answer is yes, then who would that be? and why?

If so, why? If not, why? (I am not only talking to Christians, because they are not the only people who believe in Hell) Do you believe it justified, if it does exist (in your opinion)? If so, why?

From the mouth of a true child of God, THERE IS NO HELLIt is not anyone's fault if they believe in Hell. By believing in Hell, what I mean is that they believe there exists an actual place where people go when they die,...

I've been hanging out on these forums for a long time now, and you'd have to be a fool not to notice that religion is easily the most hotly debated topic on the forums. In particular, it's Christianity that gets people...
