The Lie That Made God Cruel
What Has Happened to Hellfire ???? WHAT image does the word “hell” conjure up in your mind ???? The Jesuit journal La Civiltà Cattolica observed: “Hell exists, not as a place but as a state, a way of being of the person who suffers the pain of the deprivation of God Had the pope described hell . A report by the doctrine commission of the Church of England said: “Hell is not eternal torment, but it is the final and irrevocable choosing of that which is opposed to God so completely and so absolutely that the only end is total non-being.” Again, is hell a fiery place of eternal torment or of annihilation? Or is it simply a state of separation from God? What really is hell . ?????

Locusts, I really suspect that you are a robot. If you're human, can you say something that a human would say?-a very simple task- where is the moon?
Hell is having to suffer eternal JW drivel.
One of the doctrines that started my departure from fundamentalist, evangelical, christianity was this ridiculous notion of eternal torment.
The fact that certain groups (JW's, Seventh Day Adventists, Christadelphians etc,) reject it doesnt make the God of the Bible any less cruel to those of us that have read that evil tome.

One has only to read it as it is (disregarding doctrine) to see that the God it portrays is a psychopath worthy only of our condemnation and certainly not of our praise. The God of the Bible is a nutter.
Its a fruitcake.

//Locusts, I really suspect that you are a robot//
Atheist, They ARE robots.
Ive had 100's of dealings with JW's and they are ALL like robots!
Not a one has his own mind.

They cannot read/view anything that contradicts their organisation's recommended list.
I have accepted (many a time) their literature but they refuse to accept mine...
If 'hell' is the absence of God, then I and my fellow atheists don't seem to be suffering too much - certainly not burdened by endless handwringing and doubt all day every day!!
As regards the 'Hell' doctrine, I happen to think that they are right.
Nowhere in the NT is this sick doctrine supported. Its all a matter of translation from Hebrew/greek.
The God of the Bible is still a sadistic ass hole though!
Whenever I hear the word 'hellfire' I start singing Fire By The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown - but only in my mind.

It takes all sorts!!
Nailit; I don't think they are like robots, I think they are real robots, programmed to churn out stuff. They are incapable of responding to human questions. Am I being naif? Does everyone else know this except me, and do you all think I'm a new kid who doesn't understand AB?
I am the god of hellfire! And I bring you
Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
I'll see you burn

You fought hard and you saved and earned
But all of it's going to burn
And your mind, your tiny mind
You know you've really been so blind
Now's your time, burn your mind
You're falling far, too far behind
Oh no, oh no, oh no!
You're gonna burn

Fire, to destroy all you've done
Fire, to end all you've become
I'll feel you burn

You've been living like a little girl
In the middle of your little world
And your mind, your tiny mind
You know you've really been so blind
Now's your time, burn your mind
You're falling far, too far behind
Ooh

Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
You're gonna burn
You're gonna burn
You're gonna burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn

Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
Fire, I'll take you to bed
Fire, I'll take you, fire...
//certainly not burdened by endless handwringing and doubt all day every day!!//
It makes an interesting past time though...
In fact, they remind me of Togo and Khandro, who seem to be programmed to fire back alt-right quotes without making any points of their own. At least I know that TTT is a real person; he's too devoid of quasi-sensible points to fool anyone; he's a genuine wind-up merchant, who simply enjoys being rude-it's his pleasure and his hobby.
Old_Geezer - It's a popular misconception that the drummer on this song is Carl Palmer - later of ELP.

In fact the song came out in 1967, and Palmer joined in 1968, replacing the fabulously named (and sadly deceased) Dracken Theaker.
//and do you all think I'm a new kid who doesn't understand AB?//
LOL, Not at all Atheist.

I started off on my 'religious' life at 15 (evangelical, born again christian), went on to question my faith. Went further on to question bloody everything...
Andy, I think the best-named drummer is (was?) Chad Wackerman.
//Does everyone else know this except me, and do you all think I'm a new kid who doesn't understand AB?//

Eh?
Where you getting that from anyway?
Still a good 'un though.
Man contoured up Hell as a way to control the masses. Fortunately most of us are more informed and can see thru this. But not all. Apparently.
Nailit 20:18 and 20:20.
I refer my right honourable friend to his response at 20:08.
