I think no human has got "it" right... Yes there are some who believe they do but then do something hateful. Everyone is in a process... No one has reached the end of it even if they believe it.... No perfection, only learning.

Best Answer

Your right and i think everyone needs to be reminded of this.
In fact i think the main reason i don't like religion is that it can prevent that learning process.

All Christians share a common belief system and therefore if that systems values are hypocritical then they are hypocrites.

Best Answer

All Christians don't share a common belief system though. There are so many different denominations and within each denomination there are those who are hypocrites and those who aren't. If you believe in following absolutely everything that the Bible says than they're all hypocrites, but so much of that was either the opinion of the author or just a cultural thing.

Best Answer

Presumably they all believe in heaven god and of course Christ and so they must believe Christ's core message
But my observation is that every christian will set aside their core Christian values when it suits them
e.g celebrating bin laden's death

Really??? God loves everyone but still tortures non Christians

Best Answer

God does not torture anyone. You should not make such accusations. That is not scriptural at all. If you take what some nut who claims to be Christian and assume that what he says is what God or the Bible say, well then you are intellectually castrating yourself. The same goes if you believe what some anti-Christian nuts have to say about God and the Bible.... They don't know what they are talking about.
I will go out on a limb here and guess that your are alluding to the existence of hell. The Bible never says hell is a place of torture it barely describes it at all. All the fancy stuff we have is from fictitious works like "The Inferno" by Dante Alleghari or movies like "Hellraiser". That stuff isn't real and it most certainly isn't the Word of God.

Revelation 14:10 says: "and he shall be tormented with FIRE and BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels.

Best Answer

Yeah, good try, but a classic misunderstanding of scripture. Don't feel bad, Revelation is possibly the hardest to understand book in the entire Bible.
Revelation 14:10,11
"He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever;"
Revelation 19:3
"And her smoke rose up for ever and ever."
Revelation 20:10
"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Problem:
These verses are stock references quoted in proof of eternal hell torment for the wicked.
Solution:
"Fire and brimstone" is used figuratively, not literally in Revelation. Consider the evidence:
In the first occurrence of the expression, "fire and brimstone" is said to issue from horses' mouths. (Rev. 9:17). This is certainly no hell-fire.
If literal torment in hell were intended, then the language of the passage would require Jesus to be with his angels in hell, since it is stated: "He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels . . . and the Lamb." (Rev. 14:10).
Consistency demands that if "tormented with fire and brimstone" is literal, so much "the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation". (Rev. 14:10). But the latter is an obvious figure drawn from Jer. 25:15. Why then insist on literal fire and brimstone?
A figurative interpretation of "fire and brimstone" is in keeping with the general symbolic character of the Revelation. The woman = "that great city" (Rev. 17:18); water = "peoples" (Rev. 17:15); the Lamb similarly represents Jesus Christ. (Rev. 17:14).
Fire is used in scripture for utter destruction, not for preservation in torment. Sodom and Gomorrha were destroyed by fire and brimstone and are now set forth as "an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire". (Jude 7 cf. Gen. 19:24). But are these cities still burning? scripture affirms that these cities were overthrown in a moment (Lam. 4:6) and turned to ashes. (2 Pet. 2:6; Deut. 29:23). See also Lev. 10:1,2; Num. 16:35; 2 Kings 1:10).
"And her smoke rose up for ever and ever" (Rev. 19:3) is no hell-fire torment for the scene is the destruction of "Babylon the great", and is witnessed by lamenting merchants and shipmasters. (Rev. 18:8-10,15,18). "For ever and ever" emphasizes complete destruction.
Rev. 19:3 appears to draw its symbol from Isaiah 34:10. In this passage a fire from the Lord on Idumea (Idumea = "Edom", R.S.V. vs. 6) "shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever." (Isa. 34:10). But again, this is no hell-fire since the prophet Isaiah continues to speak of the land lying waste, a dwelling place for the owl and raven. (vs. 11).
