It would seem to me that behaving a certain way so as to secure a reward in the afterlife is itself selfish behavior.

Hell is full of eternal suffering, and ultimately Hell means being separated from God for eternity. That should scare any Christian.


If a tree falls down in a forest, and no one's around to hear it, does anyone care whether or not it makes a sound?

Being a good Christian isn't going to get you into Heaven.

There is a proven inverse relationship to religion and intelligence, That sums it all up.

Christians do not want Jesus to say to them. "Depart from me you worker of iniquity- I never knew you."

IF you are living righteously and being obedient to God you have nothing to be concerned about.

There have been accounts of Christians who went down to Hell and came back- the Lord took them down there and they came back to tell others about it- YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO THERE.

There is going to be a worldwide confession of who Christ is- it will be all over the media - TV, radio, internet, newspapers, magazines, periodicals stating "Jesus Christ is Lord". Billboards, and ads in the subways on in buses and trains and taxis will say" Jesus Christ is Lord". It will be in EVERY country that "Jesus Christ is Lord." People will prolly be skywriting it- you will not escape it.

"Why do Christians fear hell?"

I don't really think any actually do. If they did then they would surely follow their religious texts to the letter like suicidal bombers due for Islam. If all Christians were to suddenly read their bible and all other religious texts pertaining to their religion then either two things would occur.

1. They'd all become atheists as they'd realize the shit they have been fed is absolute non sense.
2. The earth would witness the greatest genocide of humanity known to time.

I'd guess that it has something to do with the fact that if Hell is actually real, it's supposed to be torturous, think about your body being covered in a third degree burn for all eternity, while at the same time being raped in every orifice, and if you're a guy, I'd imagine there are a couple of big nails just waiting to be shoved through your penis. Slowly. For all eternity.

Yeah, doesn't sound like the place you'd want to be for for eternity, now does it?


Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?

In all honesty, I've never been a believer, ever since I was tiny. My dad would bring me to his Penecostal church and I'd start drawing while placing my paper on the church pews. I'd draw my very own stick figure battles and shit and the only time my dad made me stop was when we were singing crappy church songs.

Atheists are seperated from God, TO THE MAX, so aside from the fire ( which I enjoy, by the way ), it's just like every other day on Earth?


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

Hell... Hell is a place of eternal suffering and excruciating pain... There are gnashing of teeth. A place where your thirst cannot be quench. A place where you remember everything and will always regret and feel guilty...

Who doesnt want to fear this place!?

You will be wide awake and totally conscious of what goes on around you- you can hardly breathe, it is pitch black. People don't there have boils put on them and then scratched off by giant claws. Their flesh burns off of them and goes back on them. They are in their their own prison cells.

People who went down there and came back have said this.

Man was not meant to go to Hell- man went down there for rejecting God.

I always believed that I would either go to Heaven, or have a desk job in Purgatory.

You claim that Jesus was born in 0 AD, which is completely inaccurate. Not only is it generally agreed that he was born in 4BC (as that was when King Herod died) but most scholars agree there wasn't even a year zero at all. Of course, I'm just being nitpicky and the more important things are that this is a discussion about Hell.Hell is a place described as being without God, and religious people do not want that.

It's not just some fire occassionally on your body. This is a lake of fire covering your body for all eternity. Hell is suffering, it is most certainly not like Earth. Atheists have chosen through free will to separate themselves from God. Hell is when God separates Himself from the sinner. There is a HUGE difference between us separating ourselves from God and God separating Himself from us.
