    I'm Also Afraid Of Going To Hell

    I was raised as an atheist Jewish/Christian product. I don't have faith in anything. I've tried to let Islam brainwash me. Now I'm reading about the scary Christian hell. And I can't stop from being afraid that it's real. It's f*cking unfair. If it's real then I'll be doomed. All...

    Oh My

    People! We are not perfect but can strive to become good. To the Christians, Jesus came to the earth in the form of a man. I am sure He understood the human condition. It is impossible to be 100% perfect.God  is patient and He judges us individually with understanding of...

    To me, death is a torture,

    in a way in which you first are happy, you think you are going to spend eternity with your loved ones. Your mind wonders, how did they get here before me? You put that down to the thought that you got lost, on your travels to the new world. Your friends and family, these...

    Not Any More

    The concept of hell is ridiculous... and damaging.  I think that people who believe it are more extreme (in a bad way) than people who do not believe in it.  I used to believe it in, but logic finally got the best of me.
