Believing in Hell is the fear of God, and the fear of God is a good thing to have in your walk with Jesus Christ,,,,,, The Fear of God is the rejection of all evil and the way of evil that do not come from Heaven and Jesus ways,,,,, The fear of God is believing in ways that believer have as they are in their Father God House and his House is our authority.......Some belief system may not believe in Hell and that may their ways for their interpretations of the Character of The Lord God may be different...... What we feel may not matter when we walk with Jesus for we caste down imagination that contradict our confidence in the Lord God and his Word that we know,,,, eg. sentimentalism is a emotion that is not from Heaven and many are called to resist this feeling..,,,,.eros love the feeling of erotic love is not from Heaven and many are called to resist this feeling,,,, Moody control is not from Heaven and many are called resist that feeling.....Holy Spirit will caste down these feelings and others when we find out authority through Jesus Blood........

Yes

But what I am beginning to see is that there is a parallel in it with God planting in the garden the tree of the knowledge of good and evil ---- it is a belief that needs to be overcome just as we are told to overcome evil with good.........

Yes - and to see that the Tree of Life does not judge things according to good and evil, but that all is within His domain.

Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

We can trust that He works all things after the council of His own will (Eph 1:11). Rest in the knowledge that He is Lord of all!

For myself - no negative feelings - just total assurance of being in Christ after this life.

For others that do not know Christ - prayer and hope that Christ comes into their lives.

In my own case, and my family's, absolutely!! Without a doubt, yes!! And, one more time, yes!


It seeed to me that instead of learning to love others and ourselves, we only learned paranoia, anger, fear, and frustration; Never love!

I'm STILL angry about it to this very day! I feel this belief ruined what could have been a chance in this lifetime to learn HOW TO LOVE!! I try not to let the anger color how I talk to the religious folks that still believe in TRADITION and it's mythological Greek Hell, but, sometimes my emotional baggage wins, and I start with the sarcasm.

I've only just started learning how to love......

Yes it is hard... I feel/felt cheated as well. I could have avoided a bunch of heartache.. but then while it is easy to blame our teachers... now it is reconciled so from here on out....
