    What the hell is hell anyway? Why would a loving gracious God conceive of such a place?

    Well here are some abstracts:

    Justice demands it.
    Freedom demands it.
    Peace demands it.

    Any questions?

    Looks like a lot of wusses are in attendance.

    Here is a hint. A just God let's people in freedom choose whether to acknowledge Him or not. Let's them choose to be with Him in heaven or hell. Being the creator of the universe (well enough said)

    Tell me what in today's society may be greater. The stacked market??? Heehee. The government? RFLMAO! What pray tell has a better answer to this sorry existence.

    Hell...You better believe it and find the better alternative.

    I think that sounds so shallow of God, and I know He is not. I think there is more of a purpose to ''us'' than just acknowledging God.

    Hell has been exagerated somewhat, you know....with Dante's inferno and all that followed.

    I agree there can not be justice if there is not both a Heaven and Hell, like freedom for the law abiding and prison for those who are criminals, but I am not certain I agree that it is only about accepting God or Jesus as savior....it's much deeper than simply that....

    Check out Ecclesiastes 12:13-14.

    Yep you pretty much make your own heaven or hell in the here or now.


    But from my bible studies and conversations with pastors and doctors of religious philosophy I have determined that the number of people qualifying for heaven will be very few indeed. One large resort could hold them all.
