Christians and others: is hell/eternal punishment just difficult to "stomach" emotionally?

What is more difficult
emotionally (until our
spirit is awakened to
Eternal punishment
or that
God, our Creator
wants us to admit guilt,
worship in spirit and in truth,
and live in heaven!
God only wants the best for us
and life is really about worshiping
No, it’s not about God’s alledged “ego”
or wrath, it is about who God really is and what life
and the universe is about!
Which would you choose if you
had the choice of the two?
Please, no saying its untrue or whatever,
just hypothetically think it is true at least
for this question.
Face God or Hell?
Would you admit guilt and receive
the blessing which makes
one spiritually complete to
enter eternal life and rest
in God?
Is there really any other spiritual choice
in the universe/life?
I can almost literally hear cans of worms opening!
This is a serious question, though.
thanks for your sincere thoughts
I want you to know i appreciate them
whatever they are!


  1. Evil should have NO dwelling with good. Night does not dwell with the Light b/c night cannot comprehend it.

  2. None of the above actually. When one dies the music is over, that’s it poof you cease to exist and will soon be forgotten. It’s not a big deal really everyone has to die and so the cycle continues, turn and spin

  3. Life is how you make it so i believe heaven or hell is what you make of that as well. cause living sometimes feels like hell just look at the world around you

  4. Why is this worded like a song it makes practically no sense to read anyway, I am not afraid of some fairy tale god nor a fairy tale hell, does that help?

  5. Both the good and the bad will face God for judgement.. its not a hell or God situation.
    The loss of God is the choice one makes and that particular decision is based on the fact you receive all knowledge after death.
    Your life is laid before you there is no admission of guilt, only that you did; whether your sorry and ask God forgiveness lies your eternal destination.

  6. I don’t find it hard to stomach, because those who find them selves in hell are the ones who didn’t want anything to do with God; they wanted to be totally separated from God, so God is just giving them what they wanted.

  7. What am I guilty of? Not believing in God? Can a compassionate person really say that that is deserving of A loving God could never create hell. Only evil people could imagine it.

  8. I cant stomach non existent things…. God is one of them to begin with…. hell is another…

  9. The problem is that, if there were a Hell, there would be no Heaven.
    I’ve actually written an entire book on this topic–Hell? No! Why You Can Be Certain There’s No Such Place As Hell, (for anyone interested, you can get a free ecopy of Did Jesus Believe in Hell?, one of the most compelling chapters in my book at http://www.thereisnohell.com), but if I may, I’d like to share with you one of the many points I make in it to explain why.
    Let’s say you end up in Heaven trying to sing endless praises to a God who is, simultaneously, torturing billions of others. Unless you are given a de facto lobotomy (in which case, YOU would no longer be YOU, so you might as well have not had a soul to begin with), you would have to begin wondering, “When am I next?” and the joy of Heaven would be lost, replaced by gloom and foreboding! Why? Because you could never rely on a God who is so mean to be honest about making any exceptions.
    After all, which is more difficult? For God to actively cause so much immense pain, for so many, for so long, or to go back on whatever promises he made to a few others that he would not put them in Hell too at some point?
    It would be like accepting an invitation to live as a guest with one of these maniacal men we’ve been hearing about lately who kidnap, imprison, rape and torture young girls in secret basements. Can you imagine such a guy, simultaneously, having some other young lady as his dinner date, and treating her with respect and care? And even if he did for a while, wouldn’t his true nature unleash itself upon her at some point in time, as it has on so many others? Of course!
    Thankfully, the God of Jesus is not sending anyone to Hell.
    If one is willing to look, there’s substantial evidence contained in the gospels to show that Jesus opposed the idea of Hell. For example, in Luke 9:51-56, is a story about his great disappointment with his disciples when they actually suggested imploring God to rain FIRE on a village just because they had rejected him. His response: “You don’t know what spirit is inspiring this kind of talk!” Presumably, it was NOT the Holy Spirit. He went on, trying to explain how he had come to save, heal and relieve suffering, not be the CAUSE of it.
    So it only stands to reason that this same Jesus, who was appalled at the very idea of burning a few people, for a few horrific minutes until they were dead, could never, ever burn billions of people for an eternity!
