    Please, no theological responces, as the question is simple. How would you feel about God.

    You are asking a Theological Question but asking for non-theological answers...  You are merely leading the Blind off a cliff.

      I disagree. Its a simple question. How would you feel, and please dont use theology as an excuse to hide your true feelings.

      It is like asking if I woke up tomorrow and the moon had suddenly disappeared from the sky and scientists said "well it was just an optical illusion the whole time... what do you know???"   The moon is a reality... fact...  Hell is a reality...  Fact

      You give me the strong impression that you want hell to exist. The moon is seen by all with physical eyes. Your enology is useless, because the doctrine of hell is enterpreted by men like yourself with carnal eyes, and the desire it is real.

    If I discovered that there was no God, I would be glad I lived my life doing the right things - most of the time anyway.  Doing the right thing really does make a difference in contentment in life.

      But what would you feel about God if there was no hell?

      If  I discovered there was no hell it wouldn't change my mind about God.  Experienced too much and seen too much to go back.

      Too much to explain, and I have a funny feeling you wouldn't understand, and that's okay.

      You would be surprised what could understand about the church and all its harmful ways. I am not your average Christian.

    Well then, my life would be either a living heaven or a living hell. Depending on how lucky or unlucky I am. Luck would be my new God; maybe I would feel happy with this new arrangement.

    I would still love Him, because He, God is still who He says He is, whether there is a hell or not. He gave His son Jesus, who is the Christ to save me so that i can be reconciled to the one who is filled with love for me, whether i choose Him or not.
    That said SwordofManticoE, i would continue to love Him!!!
    Be blessed...

      Sister. that is an awsome answer. May you be blessed as well.

    I would probably just feel relieved. I'd rather live as if heaven and hell exists, than to live as if they don't, only to find out that heaven and hell is a real place after the fact.

      The spiritual realm of God is real, and that was not in part the question.

    I would be quite relieved if I were to stand where I assumed were the gates of Hell and only to discover, in my great thankfulness, Hell was not to be...then I would be converted and a follower of the one and true God and changed forever. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord. When it is our time to come to the Lord's house, we will be prepared, and do so with great joy. Unfortunately for you, my friend, there is no simple response to such a loaded and provocative question as you have posed.

      Yes there is a simple responce and you nailed it until you gave opposition to my question.

    One must ask, "What is hell?" If we do not know what it is, it does not matter, whether or not it is real. Are we living here, in hell, on earth? How does hell fit into the grand scheme of all the other concepts associated with the theology of God?
    The answer is, (since you want a simple answer with not thoughts associated with the answer), "I would feel the same way about God." There you are, a simple answer to a simple question.
    Regards,

      Hell's reality only exists in the desires of mens hearts who seek a hidden vengence for those who reject God.

    I would feel that I serve a loving and forgiving God.
