Is Hell Real????????????
I am a Christian and I beleiv in most of the doctrine just im not completely sure why there would be a hell? I beleive there is good inside of everyone and sometimes we dont act our best but we still all want to be loved and God created us out of love. So why would he condemn us to such a horrible place. He made us in his image. Why not go to purgatory instead?

Hell is the common grave of mankind. In the OT the word used is Sheol, In the NT it's called Hades, and they both literally mean "The grave". The doctrine of Hell is ridiculous. It makes no sense logically or morally, and it's evil. Why would a loving God do that to someone? There's no justice in that.Source(s): The Bible

lol i hate typos too In the book of revelation, it mentions, hell and hades will be thrown into the lake of fire. Now really, can a place of fire be thrown into another place of fire? The concept of hell as a place of torment is not true. How can God make one suffer forever for only a spec in time. Job also requested to be in hell rather than face Gods anger. Really what is being said here. Hell is the grave. The whole point of Jesus and there are 9 recorded resurrections in the bible, to show a when a person dies, they do not exist anymore , only in Gods memory. That is the point to having a resurrection or rising up again. it to live. Basically hell fire is a teaching comes from Babylon. So, your chances are zero. There is no halfway. It is the big ride or nada. God is merciful that he does not want anyone to die. He will not put persons in a place of torment, the wicked however will be destroyed, they will not exist, like many times in the bible it states how a branch is cut off from the tree. it falls and dies. never once does the bible ever say it the branch which was cut keep on giving bad or good fruit and gave root. Like a person, as the bible says again, when a person dies, their thoughts perish, they are not conscious of nothing at all. Bible books Isiah, and Ecclesiastes

Well, you have to ask yourself, Is Heaven real? Now, I personally do. I also believe in Hell. He only condemns those who will not accept Him. At the end of the times, He will send satan away in a deep abyss locked forever before Jesus demolishes all sin for ETERNITY!!
On another point, you also have to remember that God is also a wrathful god and has to punish sin- He can't just leave it unpunished because He is also a very just God. He has a great deal many more characteristics than just love. He wants us to be happy, but He also wants to protect us from sin which means He needs to create a place to keep sin away from His people and out of temptation.
But also, remember He loves ALL people at the same time. He just can't have sin in the lives of those who follow Him. The Bible says that He can't even look at sin! Which is why WE should AVOID it!!
Sorry for rambling, it just takes a lot for my thoughts to get out. ;) Hope that is a sufficient answer, but you should probably talk to your church's pastor or other influential and Christ-centered leader as well as study His word (might I suggest the books of Romans, Revelation, and/or Isaiah?)

A lot of Christians have a problem with hell..
So they choose to just key in on a few passages in the bible that imply that death is the end, not hell.
It's all irrelevant to me, it's just fable, and myth.

Hell is not real, and if it were then God would be awfully mean.
Wake up humanity! We can grow out of this nonsense if we want to!

No God, no Satan, no Heaven, no Hell, no Purgatory. No afterlife. No judgment. Live until you die. Die into non-existence. That's all there is to it.

there is no hell, its just a ploy to keep people in line. promise eternal happiness as long as you obey or eternal torture if you don't. its like training a pet. give them a treat if they are good, or a punishment if they are bad. don't you like being some religious nut's pet?
