    I Want To Know...

    I have always been fascinated and confused about conceptualizations of Hell. Throughout my life, I have been agnostic and had conflicting views. I love and believe in God deeply, but this issue has always confused me.

    Mine Is.....

    BEING ALONE ON EARTH...                           THE SOUND OF LONLINESS IS DEAFENING..             .                 Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

    Eternally Alone

    If your talking about the literal Hell, this is what I think, if it exists... It is the existence of your mind/soul in pure nothingness for all eternity. Being more alone than can be humanly imagined. And, there is no light, no darkness, no sound, no God, no matter, no energy...

    A Ponder Of Philosophy.

    Jean Paul Sarte suggested hell as being trapped forever, in a room with your friends. The people you've grown to cherish and love, that made your existance meaningful and special, being turned against you, and you turning against them. All you ever loved outside of blood, falling...

    What Is Hell?

    Hell is hearing your mother scream at you that she doesn't love you and never will.  Hell is crying yourself to sleep every night when you are only 5 yrs old and asking "why?". Hell is never knowing if your mother will be in a mood to slap you and refuse to let you...

    My Hell

    When I was in hospital after I came out of coma still learning to speak again and walk, they used to put like a harness on me and strap me into my wheelchair. (supposedly for my own good but I was ok in my mind to not need it but couldn't tell them.)  I couldn't even go to...

    "here Must All Distrust End"

    Being serious? I think LIFE is Hell. Think about it. All the crap we go through - the pain, the anguish, the emotional strangulation. So, following that line, the Hell of christians and Catholics must really be heaven. A respite from mental torture, languishing in the reality...

    Hell Is Worse.....

    There are some very gruesome places on earth. Mankind is simply awful awful to other men and cruelty abounds. However, God - who is Love - is still around (Man has a free choice to follow God's love or his own desires). Hell is where God is NOT PRESENT. The WORST situation on...

    Hell Is Faith

    Hell is a world in which children are taught that a god must perform an act of human sacrifice in order to make you reconciled with it. That mothers and fathers would have the effrontery to suggest that until the kid confesses that it is a sin ridden, vile and...

    Personal Hell

    My personal hell is a white endless space, no colour, no noise, nothing.  Endless nothingness and endless time. No joy, no tears, no laughter, no hate, no love, no food, no entertainment, no words, no pictures, no company.   Beng left absolutly alone, with my...

    How I Define Hell

    Hell is mostly described as a place where it is hot. The devil is there with its servants and you have to suffer in the flames. But in my opinion this is a wrong definition of hell, simply because you see in this definition - life. Very hot a whole year is it in the rain forest...
