The God in the bible is infinite, Omnipotent and omniscience. if you are smarter than God then you must not be very human!
It is this statement that proves Hell cannot exist. By stating that God is infinite, you are stating that nothing can exist beyond or outside of God.
If Hell is a place of separation from God, or a place of torment and pain where God does not exist, then Hell itself cannot exist. Hell would have
to exist outside of infinity, but since nothing is outside of infinity, Hell is nothing. So you could say that for a soul to be cast into Hell, means
that it is cast into nothing, thus becoming nothing. or non-existant. All souls that retain an awareness of their spiritual nature return to God, or
go to "heaven".
I think the Bible has been manipulated for the benefit of those seeking power, but that it still contains truth, if it is sought for.
Oh, and for the record, loving one another is the whole of the law according to Christ and the New Testament.
Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
This one principle is all that matters and everything good in the world, springs from it. It also doesn't require faith in anything, but what is
naturally a part of all of us.
