3 questions answered clearly would give a clear answer to this question:
1) Is there a hell?
2) What is the nature of hell?
3) Why are people sent to hell?
1) For all we know hell could be a state of conciousness and a way of living rather than an etheral plane.The bible can be interpreted in many
different ways and some of these even refer to the human body.
Wether there is actually a hell or not im not sure of, but to me thats not the right question
The bible pretty much tells us that if we act out the 7 sins we are stuck in fire and stuff, but remember the bible has had thousands of years to be
tampered with, so sometimes you have to look at the meaning behind rather than just imagining hell.
If we live in acordance to the 7 sins, eventually we will encounter things that make our lives a living 'hell'.
2) Again, if hell is a state of conciousness its nature is a bit different than what we would think. The nature of hell is an individual who has
succumbed to the sins and is living a life which is detrimental to his health. We all sin, and im not a bible throwing lunatic who thinks we should
all suffer eternal damnation. But there is a difference between a human being who makes mistakes and a human being who strives to make mistakes. This
human beings mindset is what puts him in hell on earth. Sorry if thats a bit muddled, im very tired
3) People put themselves in 'hell' (the lowest state of conciousness) and they experience horrible things because of there actions. Because
everything is a learning experience and the best and quickest learning is experienced when going through traumatic events. This would cause them to
learn from what put them in this 'hell' in the first place and become better people, so you could say that this hell is experienced by people to
help them grow really.
This is really all my opinion, ive picked tidbits of it up out of random places over the years so i cannot source you on everything. Not saying its
right but its just what i believe.
Eternal separation from God would be top of the list of things to fear about God. If you know for sure that there is no hell there is no reason
to fear God, is there? On the other hand it would be wise to err on the side of caution than to throw it all away because you are overconfident in
what you think you know about spiritual things
Thats a bit rude. Good on the OP to write about what he thinks spiritually.
Risktakers die quicker than the cautious but the risktakers certainly live more than the cautious
