What you will find at the What the hell is “Hell?” Site
Map - Valley of Gehenna
After spending several years in many different denominations of Christianity, spending thousands of hours comparing and studying various translations of the Bible, looking into the Greek and Hebrew behind our English translations, studying the writings of the early Church Fathers, and seeking God in prayer with all that is in me, I am one hundred percent convinced there is NO such thing as a Hell of everlasting tortures as taught in most denominations of Christianity.
This site is dedicated to the eradication of the myth of Hell from the face of this earth. This pagan myth, invented by men and women—NOT God—has been a great stain upon the nature and character of our Creator for thousands of years. It has turned men and women into animals and caused them to see the Creator as a fiend. It is time to dismantle this evil.
Does Your Walk Talk?
I do not believe that you Christians believe your own creed — for if you were persuaded that things really are as your Bibles teach, and that we poor lost people were really going to such a dreadful place as you say Hell is — then you would act more humanely toward us.
If you saw our houses on fire — you would run and help us to put the fire out; or if you saw us in danger of death — you would try to do something to save us. But you pretend to believe that we are going to Hell, and that Hell burns with fire and brimstone forever, and that once there we can never get out — and yet you talk to us about all sorts of things — but never say one word to us about saving our souls from this terrible doom!
So I have reasoned thus: either you Christians don’t believe what you say — or else you must be the most hardened and unfeeling wretches in the universe! Now, as I don’t believe that you are such cruel, hardened, and unfeeling people as this supposes — then I must conclude that, with all your talk — you Christians don’t really believe what you think your Bibles teach!
For if you really believe what you say about sin, and Hell, and our danger — then you would act differently; and if you have a spark of kindness in your hearts — you would try to save us from such a dreadful doom. And, on the other hand, if you do not believe what you profess — then you Christians cannot be honest; and to say the least, there must be a great deal of hypocrisy among you.
Now, I honestly tell you that these are the things which have stumbled me more than anything, and until I can see you Christians act differently — I will not be persuaded to believe what your sort of folks say. From “The Book You Will Like!” James Smith (1859)
Universalism VS Hell
Due to the internet and print-on-demand printing, more and more of the world is becoming aware that the church has been hoodwinked and has hoodwinked most of the world for 1500 years. It was in 1553 that the fifth council of the Church declared Origen, the greatest scholar of the early church, a heretic. It was under the rule of Emperor Justinian, one of the most perverse Christian emperors of all time, that the glorious teaching of universal salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ became a heresy. From that time forth, those who believed and taught that Jesus will save all mankind would be labeled heretics and suffer the penalties associated with heresy. Continue reading
