    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.

    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...

    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

    But That Fear Requires Belief

    if i believe in Hell, then i must also believe in Heaven; the problem with that is, in order to believe in either place, i must believe in the Christian God.  Therein lies the biggest problem of all; i'm not so sure i do.  i used to believe wholeheartedly, now i'm sort...

    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...

    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 don't believe in HELL.
