    David Duke? Hitler? Al Sharpton? All of them racists, one of them a mass-murderer. Ted Bundy...Ted Kennedy - all killers...but do Christians really 'want' some people to go to hell?

    I personally do NOT...It'd be my hope that ANY Of those vile men would come to Christ and experience forgiveness.

    Especially Mr. Sharpton.

    Seriously - I'm not sure it matters what hell means to 'me'. What hell or where hell is located is beside the point. We know it's a 'place' or a 'state of being' away from God.

    I know of a woman who was having marital problems. Her husband told her to "Go to hell." She asked a religious leader what he should do about it. he told her "Don't go"

    because it's not God's call...it's 'ours'. We go to hell. God forbids some to enter 'heaven' -


    I don't want to get sidetracked into a semantics debate, however.
