If you just want to ask questions of Christians, go to a Christian website.
It's when you start thinking.
Hell is the absence of the presence of God.<br />
The idea is upon judgment of your soul, you will get a taste of the job of being in the presence of God. It will be so wonderful, that taking that presence away IS hell. <br />
Or that's what they taught us in school.
It depends on where you're from. We all grow up believing that it's a hot firey place where people go after they die when they are bad. But I've recently learned that the place Gehenna that was discussed in the bible was an actual firey pit where they threw the bodies of criminals and unknowns when they died (or were executed). So when you hear them talking about how Jesus didn't go to Gehenna, its because he was placed in a borrowed tomb instead. Otherwise his body would've been thrown in the firey pit after he was crucified. <br />
Thats just what I've heard.

Well, as damn near everyone on here knows, I'm a conservative, Christian southern Republican. Glad I could be of assistance to you.
Anonimus2. If you're really wanting to know what hell is like, there is a book out from several yrs back entitled "23 Minutes In Hell" Google it, read about it or go read it. Short book.
then you must have been a very bad Christian for God to punish you like this... If that's what you think hell is.
Nah. BAD things DO happen to good people you know.
ALL true Christians know and realize this, that bad things happen to good people.
Yes. Ignorance happens to good people.
EVERYONE on the planet is ignorant of things. Ignorance means simply not having knowledge of something. Even the smartest people do not have knowledge of everything. So YES, technically what you said is correct, good people are ignorant. So too are dumb people, bad people, smart people etc...
lacking knowledge or awareness in general
Some more than others. WAAAAYYYYY more.
Absolutely! All democrats for starters. All folks who use drugs (smoking is drug use too), all folks who are lazy, fat, don't exercise regularly, don't get the proper rest, those who want and try to keep up with the Joneses, those who want without doing, those who don't read to their children, talk to them, play with them and let them know they are important and cared for, those who don't continually learn (not just schooling although I'm a big fan of it, only a college grad though).
