    Do you believe that Hell is right here in this Life and never after Death?

    As far as I am concerned using faith to become loyal to a certain religion will never solve the problems of humanity because only wisdom and understanding could change a person's attitudes and become a much better person with it you can perceive that we are in Hell right now since nobody could say that he is not experiencing pains, agonies, etc. all of us are suffering one way or another, rich or poor.

    People can certainly make their own life and the lives of those around them seem like Hell. Much of human suffering is caused by people. People also have the power to alleviate the suffering of others whatever the cause if we so choose. As a Christian, I feel duty bound to try to improve the world around me and leave things, places, people more cared for than I find them. I love my neighbors whoever they are. I love my enemies because they have no defense against it. Love makes the world better.

    Reading I feel there are three questions asked with the main question:

    ** Do I believe in hell?
    ** Is hell here now in this life I have presence with? If so, then what of others for 'Life' as a whole?
    ** If there is hell is it only after death?

    Firstly, answering the last first a resounding 'No' while may be an esoteric answer. That can lend to long discussions. For me it just doesn't seem to fulfill common sense even when reading the scriptures IMO.

    The first part of the second question I acknowledge as being metaphorical / allegorical. I feel it speaks of the human condition - mine, and its pathway with some 60 years of experience. I reflect upon Dante's Inferno with its allegorical theme. That was a reading requirement for a class many years ago. I have not read the other two of the trilogy - Divine Comedy, (Purgatory and Paradise). Perhaps, I should?!?

    The second part of that question? I really dun'no . . . but, sure seems so today with the broad stroke of the brush. Especially with a big picture view of the world today. Patient smaller brush strokes with care seem to develop a picture of greater beauty. Seems it takes a bit of time to develop the master piece.

    Finally, the first . . . most notably is perhaps, but willing to listen. I ponder the second question with its parts. Why can be asked. Because my personal belief system, today, has been founded more on Thomatic thinking with Thesis / Antithesis with many dialogues. I have a lean of it being a synthesis.

    Hell is a state of being, a state of mind. Many people are living in hell right now, and mostly it seems to be self-chosen.

    If careless and inconsiderate, I can make "hell" for another person, right here and now.
    If full of desire for my self, yet not able to realise or to satisfy that desire, I can make "hell" for my self, right here and now.
    Knowing and understanding the nature of my selfishness, my  greed, my dissatisfaction with everything before me, can lead me to the opposite of that which is "hell."   I can enter "heaven," right here and now.
    I can prepare as much as possible for the "now" that will be "tomorrow," but since the latter never comes, I am left with the "Now," to make of it as I wish.
    So.....let's be careful of what we wish for, eh?
