Christianity claims it is humanly impossible to
comprehend the New Testament invention of hell ― Nothing on earth can compare with
it. No nightmare could produce a terror to match that of hell. No
horror movie could describe its fright. No crime scene with all its blood and
gore could begin to match the horror of hell.
The Christian Bible describes hell as WEEPING (Matt ), WAILING (Matt ), GNASHING OF TEETH (Matt ), DARKNESS (Matt 25:30), FLAMES (Luke ), TORMENTS (Luke ), EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT!
"Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41) "And shall cast them into a FURNACE OF FIRE: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:42 KJV)
Wow! Such a horrible place to have to spend 50,000,000,000 years, much less eternity! How does one warrant such a terrible punishment in Christianity? Does one have to be a "regular" sinner; a mass murderer or perhaps a child molester? No! This is a punishment reserved for the most horrific crime on earth. Ah, but you ask, what crime could be so horrible? NOT BELIEVING IN JESUS!
“He that believeth on him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John KJV)
John, writing about his new religion of “Love,” had Jesus say: “If a man abide not in me he is cast forth as a branch and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned” (John 15:6).
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:15 KJV)
FIRE is the favorite Christian punishment. Catholics and Protestants loved to set people on fire, either as individuals or packing them into a place of worship and setting the building on fire. Let's not forget burning witches at the stake in America!
Because dying in fire is such a horrible death, Christianity uses this method of "eternal" death, as a scare tactic, a means of keeping their congregations in line. For two thousand years Christian sermons have been full of Hell Fire and Damnation – Fire and Brimstone. The words Damnation and Damned are found 14 times the NT and ONLY appears in the Christian Bible, not its claimed source of authority, the Hebrew bible.
Strong’s Concordance of the Bible lists the word “Hell” 54 times in the New Testament. Christianity’s concept of Hell grew out of a misnomer of the Hebrew word “Gehenom.” When Christian editors of the Hebrew bible canonized their New Testament, they altered the meanings of “Gehenom,” and “lower depths,” and “pains of the grave,” etc. to the mythical name of Hades–the Christian Hell.
As a result of that misunderstanding, Strong’s lists the word “Hell” 31 times when referring to verses in the Greek interpretation of the Hebrew bible.
Too bad that Christian religiholics' minds are so brain-washed they cannot use logic or think independently.
"And I said to him, 'Jeez, Jeezy boy, I feel like no one will ever accept me.' And Jesus looked at me and said, 'You know what my theory is -- accept me or go to hell.'" -Gilbert Gottfried (1955-)
