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.
I have a friend who has hereditary genetic problems in his family. Much of his family suffers from depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, etc. Due to his concern that he might pass this on to children, he decided never to marry so that he wouldn’t curse children with the genes he inherited.
According to the gospel of traditional church, God wanted to have children made in His own image. Since he had foreknowledge and sovereignty and was all-powerful, He knew that most of those that would come forth in birth would be rejects, misfits, deformed, degenerate, insane corrupt, rebellious and could not be redeemed. He knew this would happen before He set creation in motion. But because he wanted to have a few children who would come out perfect that he could truly love as his own, He set forth a creation generating billions upon billions of children who would be cursed to suffer with imperfections that would prevent them from being accepted into the kingdom of god. These children could not enter a perfect heaven because God is perfect. These rejects would be eternally estranged from God, nay, even worse, these children would be damned, cursed, tortured in their misery for all eternity.
My friend, who forsook having children because he didn’t want to burden them with his genes is a better example of someone worthy to worship than the god of traditional Christianity. I am sooo grateful, my loving heavenly Father has revealed to me that the traditional gospel of church is a lie from the father of lies. All mankind will receive the genes of Jesus Christ. The god of traditional Christianity makes Satan look good. And that is where this hideous teaching taught by most of the church comes from; it comes from the father of lies.
All mankind is loved unconditionally by our heavenly Father. For scriptural proof of that visit http://www.tentmaker.org/ScholarsCorner.html
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)
