H*E*L*L--- Is it Real?

Friday, March 28, 2008


Hell, according to several spiritual beliefs, is a life after death of torment where the iniquitous or unrighteous souls are castigated.

Hell is “more often than not” depicted as underground. Contained by Islam and Christianity, Hell is customarily depicted as flaming and agonizing. Some other ethnicities, on the other hand, describe Hell as cold and gloomy. Continuation after life is not tangible in Judaism and may be portrayed as a status of neutrality, an eternal nothingness, simply non-life.

Some theologies of Hell offer lifelike and ghastly. Religions with a linear divine history often depict Hell as endless. Religions with a cyclical history often illustrate Hell as a conciliator period between incarnations. Chastisement in Hell typically corresponds to sins unswerving in life. Every now and then these dissimilarities are unambiguous, with disaster-prone souls anguishing for each wrong committed, and at times they are general, with sinners being downgraded to one or more hollow of Hell or level of miseries. In Islam and Christianity, conversely, devotion and remorse play a bigger role than actions in determining a soul's “the hereafter destiny”.

Hell is often represented inhabited with demons, which agony the hopeless. Many are ruled by a death god, such as Nergal, the Hindu Yama, or concepts of the Christian Satan.

In disparity to Hell, other universal types of afterlives are abodes of the deceased and paradises. Abodes of the lifeless are unbiased places for all the, rather than prisons of castigation for sinners. A paradise is a blissful afterlife for some or all the dead.

Modern understanding of Hell often depicts it conceptually, as a status of loss relatively than as burning torture plainly under the ground.

I believe that there is a hell..but how could they hear people who are dead, wouldn't that make them not dead in some weird way..to hear the screames of there tormented souls all the way into the land of the living, makes it the worst possible place to be...I know that I will not be going there..Jesus is my Lord and Savior :) great blog you have here!

I like what Jean-Paul Sartre said: "Hell is other people."

All respect to you LadyTerri but why is Christianity, a religion born in the unconditional love of the person of Jesus Christ, why is this religion so fond of damning people for eternity... No offence, but I feel that, yet again, human beings are projecting their own motives and ends and means upon a Divinity and this is about as arrogant as is possible... Saint Augustine it was who said "Hate the sin but love the sinner" ("cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum")... human beings are surely being more than a little presumptuous to assume that their own history of insecurity hate and violence would be mirrored in the Infinite Mind of God.

Hell is a story like the boogeyman. Perhaps by putting notional consequences into the afterlife it is seen to be OK to totally ruin this world as the piper will not have to be paid until after death and all good or bad on this Earth is only seen through the prism of a limited ecclesiastical perspective. Thus: this religious cosmology is not environmentally sound... *lol*

Oh yes, please do not be offended - even Jesus was fond of talking and discussion and discussion without difference is mere dogma.

yeah its true... JEsus said that there is a lake of fire where the souls are condemned forever. MAybe for now its just a ordinary story or maybe you can just laugh at it, but someday will come that we are going to die. it is too late to regret when you did not receive JEsus Christ as your LOrd and Savior...

ONLY JESUS CHRIST can SAVE YOU FROM
HELL OR FROM ETERNAL CONDEMNATION.

HE DIED FOR YOU INORDER TO GAIN YOUR LOVE, TO CLEANSE OUR SINS..

IM GOING TO TELL THE WORLD THAT JESUS LIVES AND NOW HE RULES THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH IS JUST HIS FOOTSTOOL...

WHERE WILL YOU SPEND YOUR ETERNITY? HEAVEN OR HELL.....?
