Unable to feed their kids, no sewers so you have to throw a plastic bag in the street every time you defecate, no drinking water, so your child has a high chance of dying from diarrhea, and so on, and so on.
I think we are in hell. Think about it, there is so much injustice and pain in the world. Children, animals and people in general being abused, tortured and killed. People using others for their own greedy needs. People starving while the rich throw food away. What can we do about all these atrocities? Not much. I can help feed the homeless, I can call 911 about an abused person, but it won't end it. No matter how hard we try we can't get rid of these horrible things going on around us, and that my friends, is what I consider 'HELL'.
Ah yes, it is nice to read some common sense on this topic of hell. You have hit the nail on the head; if Jesus ever "comes back" he's going to point and say "Look at the mess you've made" and we'll all be in the soup.. and I suspect he won't care too much what religion or book we believed in , in these disastrous circumstances our world faces. (Of course, we in the West live in the closest thing to Paradise there has ever been, on the other hand)
hell is real but not in the sense everbody thinks. This is a very good question. There is plenty of scripture that talks about hell.....and it all comes down to one thing, that hell is not eternal torment but rather an eternal death.
"The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23. "Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." James 1:15. "God ... gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16.
The consequences for sin is death not an everlasting life of torment.
Is hell real to you? If so, what do you think it will be like?I wrote a little about what I thought hell might be like (http://hubpages.com/hub/Afraid-of-the-Dark) but wondered what others would have to offer. Maybe you don't believe in hell and want to share what you believe happens...
Is Hell as real as Heaven..??The writers of books and short story mention to much of reality of Heaven....But Pastors an Preachers talks much about Hell...Is Hell real Or its just rumors nor philosophy of men....Somebody had to tell the truth.
Is it possible that our earth is actually hell?I have difficulty believing that there is a reason for our world being in the shape that it is in other than we are being tested. What if being banished to hell is not for an eternity, but for what we perceive a our lifetime, a place where we...
I'm an atheist, but I've always thought that the Bible adamantly condemns homosexuality. Do homosexuals have any chance of getting into heaven? This has always confused me. In God's eyes, is being homosexual any more different than being an adulterer or killing someone? Can homosexuals also be...
