Hey guys, thanks for helping me reach the front page, massive thanks.

If anyone's interested, I'm currently doing a project for university, and need people to answer a survey, it doesn't matter how old you are, or what you do for a living.

It's six multiple choice questions, and it would mean a lot to me. Thanks in advance!

The Christian belief about sin is that yes, you really do have to be 100% perfect to go to Heaven.

However, we're not, because we're all sinners. So we're all going to hell.

Therefore, God sends Jesus, who is the only perfect innocent, to suffer punishment in our place.

If we admit that we are sinners (like "pleading guilty" in court), God will accept Jesus' sacrifice on our behalf (like having someone else pay our fine) and we get to go to Heaven anyway. If we don't, we get punished to the full extent.

It's actually a pretty sweet deal.

I have read a very interesting theory of Hell that plays much more to the frailties and flaws of human nature; C. S. Lewis and M. Scott Peck were two of its main proponents in our modern era, but I doubt it completely originated with them. Basically, Hell is not an inescapable prison of fire and torture at all, but rather an oppressively dreary place in which people are actively encouraged to strive for power over one another and to take pleasure in one another's pain. The "damned" are actually free to leave this Hell any time at all, but the premise is that a truly corrupt soul would choose to stay there, because its social fabric would play to the base and petty ideals they had lived by; those kinds of people would never be able to stomach Heaven, in which all people were equal in the eyes of God and there were no opportunities to build oneself up by tearing others down. In essence, those people would be damning themselves to Hell by their own refusal to grow and change. I may have simplified the concept quite a bit here, but it certainly gives you a lot more to chew on than "bad people will have to suffer for eternity".

I recall a parable that might better explain Heaven and Hell:

One day a man said to God, “God, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.”
God showed the man two doors. Inside the first one, in the middle of the room, was a large round table with a large pot of stew. It smelled delicious and made the man’s mouth water, but the people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.
The man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. God said, “You have seen Hell.”
Behind the second door, the room appeared exactly the same. There was the large round table with the large pot of wonderful stew that made the man’s mouth water. The people had the same long-handled spoons, but they were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.
The man said, “I don’t understand.”
God smiled. It is simple, he said, Love only requires one skill. These people learned early on to share and feed one another. While the greedy only think of themselves… [Author unknown]

Interpret it as you will, I just thought I'd share.

For the love of...I had a little hope there might not be a million ********** in the comments. Nope. Erry time, FJ.

Lemme just throw this out there, then step the **** back and stay out of this beyond this point.

-Don't believe in something because it sounds better than the alternative. Believing in an afterlife because it seems viable to you is okay. Believing in one because "It just suck otherwise" is not.

-Don't assume that an entire community is retarded because of the retards representing the community. Not all Christians are inept, biased morons who ignore scientific fact because the magic man said so. Not all atheists are assholes or horrible or intolerant of all religions. It's just plain dumb claiming that en entire group of people are pathetic simply because of a trait they share.

-Accept the fact that the things you know to be true may not be true at all. Years ago, mankind KNEW the Earth was flat. Before the Titanic went pepsi we KNEW it would never sink. The stuff you "know" could be ******** , and if you refuse to be open minded and try to find truth from all angles you will always be inept.

-TAKE A JOKE. ****** . Humor is meant to NOT be taken seriously, so taking it so serious is counter intuitive. If a joke offends you, just ******* ignore it.

There is no amount of good deeds that you can do in a lifetime that warrants an eternity of reward, and there is no amount of sin you can commit to warrant an eternity of suffering, even for real pieces of 						****					 like Stalin or Pol Pot (though they do deserve a long, long, looooong sentence, but still not eternity), so why the 						****					 does everyone talk about them like they're completely reasonable consequences for a life's actions? Even more frustrating is that, according to traditional Christian beliefs, you have to worship God to even have your good deeds count - if you don't then it doesn't matter if you're the most wonderful person ever because you're still Hell bound. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who sees how utterly 						*******					 retarded this is to any reasoning person.   
   
Just to be clear: I don't believe any of it, but the idea behind the reward and punishment system in Christianity is more than a little broken. God should probably stop helping people win the Super Bowl and win elections and get on dealing with its own 						****					.

Thought I'd chip in with Muslim beliefs on the subject.
A. God is very is described as being most merciful, so many of us will be forgiven most of our sins. Those who still have more sins after God's forgiveness go to hell
B. Those who are kinda ambiguous go to the middle place where they can see the wonder of heaven and the terrors of hell. Once God has decided they've done their time, they too will be admitted to heaven

That's why I've never like christianity. Oh you were a decent dude most of your life but didn't believe in god? You burn in hell for all eternity for 80 or so years of not believing in a dude. What's that? You were a huge ******* dickweed to everyone around you and never did anything good, but you prayed every night and loved jesus? Welcome to eternal bliss.

All you dumbasses always talk about "evidence" where is this "evidence"? **** dude, it's not about the evidence, it's a little deeper than that, smartasses. It's about fate, it's about understanding something that's a little more complex than looking over some evidence. I'm not a "Heaven or Hell" follower, but I do believe there is something beyond life. Something bigger and more valuable. Something humans have yet to figure out. "Athiests" Thumb me down for this **** , I really don't care. I choose to believe there is more life than we understand, on a spiritual level, because otherwise life would just seem pointless. Consume until you wither away

I thought Purgatory was the place of punishment and Hell for those who were lured there
