I Don't Believe In Hell

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 651 People

    Life...

    I believe that heaven and hell are a combination of one's state of mind and life circumstances.  To me the terms are not refering to an afterlife, but are ways to metaphorically describe one's current life. Sometimes one's own mind can be one's personal hell...

    Underworld

    Hell is the most comforting place. I want to live in hell forever, because it is the one place I can go to get away from Christians, or unconscious people. Hell is rich with vivid imagery. Flaming oceans of red and orange like where the most exquisite sunsets must meet the...

    The notion of "Hell" is a control mechanism.

    Many religions manipulate their followers through fear and intimidation. "Some deity" will be angry of one does something. "Some deity" loves you but will cast misbehaving people into some "hell" out of anger. If someone wants to believe in an idea of eternal damnation for...

    Logically Hell Makes No Sense

    What is the point of Hell? Well, believers would argue that it acts as a "deterrent" for sin. That is to say that the fear of being horribly tortured for all eternity stops people from sinning. Fair enough, but the fact that there is an overwhelming amount of "sin" (by Biblical...

    I don't really believe in hell, because of the parable with the child and the fish. It was said that you would not give your child a fish when they ask for a snake, and God loves you much more than a parent loves a child, so I ask, what parent would send their child to burn...

    If they did something horrible they should make up for it for a certain amount of time and maybe they could finally relive.

    Hell Can Go To Hell

    I believe in God, but in the Bible for 'hell' they use the words Hades and Sheol, which mean the common grave. As in the ground. Also 'the dead are conscious of nothing' also goes against the belief of hell. I think it was made up to scare people. A fear inspiring concept. Not...
