Those are some deep thoughts. My opinion on the matter is that there really is no hell. Almost every reference to hell in the bible uses the word Gehana, which is Jerusalem's city dump basically. After doing a lot of research, I've determined that there is only one afterlife and it is a place of love, light and union with the Source (God). Every religion contains part of the truth, but there's so much misinterpretation, opinion, etc. that the point gets missed. The point is that everyone needs to love each other, no matter what makes us different. Blind worship of something you don't understand is a complete waste of time and so is judging people. Our souls are already immortal and the only way we grow is to live in human form through various lives. I recommend checking out Michael Newton's books.
Many will be lead the wrong way by well meaning people.
Most who choose not to believe simply would rather not so that they can live any way they choose.
if you're at all curious, the books are called Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls by Michael Newton. Using hundreds of cases of past-life hypnotic regression and life-between-life hypnotic regression, he has done a very good job of mapping out the spirit world.
@Sassysprite, I recommend that you read other literature than the Bible and stuff by Christian authors. There's a lot more out there than you realize.
haven't read it yet, but it's on my list. The Sourcefield Investigations by David Wilcock is also a must-read.
IF one believes in a good GOD, then one must also believe that he is not a tyrant and would not control us, even at the cost of watching us seperate ourselves from him, and each other.
Again, freedom of choice includes the freedom to make bad choices. Freedom of belief includes the freedom to not believe.
Nothing can separate us from one another or from God.<br />
Love between God and men or between men themselves<br />
is unbreakable, unchaged, unlimited.<br />
The result of belief and disbelief is the fruit of love.<br />
God's love is always there: When we believe and love,<br />
we find that the fruit is sweet.<br />
When we don't believe and don't love, we find that the fruit is bitter.<br />
It is like we make progress in school or fail, <br />
That is the natural fruit of our choice, although the love<br />
of our parents for us is always there.<br />
Moreover, because of love, God and our parents<br />
always try to give us warnings, support us and never abandon us.
My suggestion is of no use.
He who believes will harvest the fruit of a believer.
He who doesn't believe, you know his harvest.
Finally, each individual freely and independently makes
his responsible choice.
Listen to the silence in your heart and you will know
You have your answer :)
Believing in God is not enough to get you into heaven..Even the demons in hell believe in Him.<br />
You have to choose to have Jesus as your savior.Are You a sinner?
Everyone's a sinner.
FOR SURE EVERYDAY.in little ways and big ones.I only asked to see if you realise you need a saviour
You right and Your wrong.There is but 1 saviour and that is Jesus Christ.Yes we should all live life to the fullest and do the best we can while we are here.You stated you sin right? If there is not God how could there be any sin? You believe that there is a billion buck out there buy i'm sure you have never seen it or held it in your hand and yet you believe in it
I am not sure that God is exclusively "good". If he is all things then he is at least capable of "bad". Like maybe he'd even be capable of ... flooding the earth or... destroying whole cities. Maybe the "good" part is just his expectation of our behavior.
