To you there isn't. To me there is. You think there are believers that get joy out of thinking about how many millions of people will be going to Hell? No one does! However, it's not my job to stay focused on that. It's my job to stay focused on Heaven and minister the word to people in hopes they turn to him. You must never forget the whole world except for Noah and his family perished during the flood. And Lot and his family are the only ones who escaped the burning of Sodom & Gomorrah. This is similar to how it will be today when Jesus returns. He said few find the way to eternal life. I'm going to trust in him and his word and take it just as it is. If the concept of a Hell turns men away from God, then they were never of God. A man has to have the fear of God in him to actually listen. I know when I learned about Hell, it put the fear of God in me for an eternity. I have never doubted it. Not to mention the hundreds of documented NDE's and OBE's describing that exact same place. To not believe in a Hell is putting your head in the sand.

The point of this post in this board is in response to the comments posted by unbelievers.

I just started watching the 700 Club, and today it profiled a 30ish woman who, at the age of 16, was so distraught she shot herself in the chest with a .38 caliber. Before shooting the gun, she did cry out to God. She immediately felt her spirit going DOWN, and once there she was among all the souls who had gone to Hell. The re-creation was done so well that I wouldn't wish that fate on anyone! She felt them trying to reach out to their loved ones here on earth to not end up like they did. She then saw God's hand reach down and lift her up and out, and she went through a beautiful place, but NOT Heaven. God then lowered her back into her body. The bullet missed her heart by thismuch, and, being a .38, it should have shattered her heart.

I understand some will say this is acting, scripted, made-up for the show. Yes, it did have to be acted out and scripted to show the experience the person went through. And I believe the person telling of their experience.

My advice for non-believers is to attend a (legit, New Testament, Christian) Bible study group. Ask your questions, challenge the leader and the group. I did, when I first attended one, now, as a long-time worshiper, I understand about God's desires for us. Love, forgiveness, kindness, so hard to do at first, so easy to do after. And get yourself an easy to understand Bible, I like the New International Version Study Bible myself. It shows in colors what the scriptures are relating to ie purple=God speaking, yellow=regarding family, dark gray=Satan, etc.

God Bless all of his children, past, present, and future.

So lost in ancient superstition and at such a young age. Decades of self imposed misery await you youngster if you continue your willful ignorance of life.

Oh, absolutely. I learned in my late teens to hate this life and my life. Boy, did I ever benefit

You have been duped by an ancient superstition, and sadly you will spend a life time chasing what does not exist. For when you die you will be very god like, you won't exist either.
