It was a clear question why people think the op would go to hell.
If he would have stated it that way, it would have been evident his intention was Christian bating, so to suck people in, he pretended as if he was actually concerned about possibly ending up in Hell, which to me is dishonest.edit on 18-8-2012 by jmdewey60 because: add Bible quote: "For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God."

I see it as a way to get people in here to say why they believe the op may go to hell.
I've been told many time I'm going there because I do not believe every single word in the Bible is of God.
I've also been told I'm going to hell for countless other reasons, from the Christians of course. They are all sooo sweet! Ha!
In my opinion the op just wanted to pick the brains of members to find out their reasons.... As we can see people have different reasons why.
It boils down to PERCEPTION. I can tell the op why I believe there are many mansions and some include a not so pretty mansion. But in the end it is only a belief of perception from study of ancient history.
No on truly knows except from what we have been told by the experiencer who experienced such a hell.
None of us know if it exists.... Our proof are words.
If you don't trust mans Intentions and believe him to lie then it's hard to blindly follow a book our leaders laid out before us waaaay back when not to mention the many times it's been translated and perverted.
Christians today are not taught reincarnation when Is you study ancient texts they tell a story of rebirth.... I find it in the Bible as many do. Why do they not teach this today? I know why... Because its easier to control the population with fear of messing up this life and going there to burn for all of eternity. Why tell them you get chances to perfect as Jesus did. It's just an opinion of mine.... A perception of truth.
Who's right? Why argue opinions?
You stated what you had to say to the op.... And then come back, rude, making accusations that are clearly not so and if it were you had the will to not be baited.
Religious threads are opinions.... No facts at all.
I can site reincarnation all day and site people who have memories of past lives. If you are not into the idea though, you will reject it and link sites to support your opinion.
Either way the op clearly stated the intent, please go back and read it.... It's very clear, and I'm not a Christian so do you think it's not a bait to me, just you?
