The Hell Debate


HELLS FIREIt’s been one of the oldest debates of all time. The debate usually sets itself  center stage for Christians, Christian Fundamentalist, and all other believers of a higher deity to square off with  Atheists.

Hell is notarized throughout the Bible by Jesus Christ himself. Fire, and brimstone, is the reward to those unworthy of  admission into the kingdom of his father the messages resonate. And it is certainly scientifically  possible for the earth itself to find it’s demise through the fiery flames of nature, no doubt.

Then on the other side of the coin debates continue relentlessly spurned by some real common sense interpretations from the Bible itself.

One that repeatedly crops up is ” Would a loving forgiving God will us to eternal damnation, and if so , doesn’t it go against God’s core set of principles?”
Another question  that sprouts up – “Is Hell no more than an unfounded, theological, philosophical, and mythical afterlife authored by the writers of passages in the Bible to sustain the beliefs of  a supreme deity?

If Hell does wait as an eternity for sinners,  in what physical entity as opposed to a metaphor then will the events in Hell adhere to the laws of physics observable on the planet Earth?  Will the the Earth simply engulf the unfortunate into a fiery belly of fire and brimstone? Or once the sanitized souls are resurrected and extracted the remaining “sinners” are left to ride the no longer orbiting earth  into the sun? Or is hell a manifestation that will thrive eternally within the soul?

Or is anything going to happen at all?

In any event, Hell warrants a digestive syllabus to afford believers and non-believers alike a comprehensive interchange of dialogue of each other’s interpretation of  it.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
