    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...

    I don't believe in HELL.

    At least not the hell that most people envision. I know that when I become Spirit, I will be reunited with my spiritual family. I will understand what the lessons I came to this physical plane to learn and whether I finally gained the understanding the lesson was supposed to...

    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...

    Fear The Creation More Than The Creator

    I'm a coward and scared of the place created for the devil. I do not love Jesus or God. I love my sin and hate God. You can't change yourself. You can't stop sinning. If you believe that then you good for you. Have you called on God to save you? Do you ask for forgiveness and go...

    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...

    Constant Fear

    I was raised in a very strict church,but never read the bible for myself. Ever since I read the bible, I had a follower of Reverend Moon trying to convince me that he's the new messiah, so I worry that I have been guilty of trading in the real messiah for another one and if so...

    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.
