I'm pretty sure the bible reads God will destroy the earth regardless of the actions of man. You have actually read the book you're referring to, right?
Well, kinda... in Deuteronomy.
" For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains."
Now, I don't really believe in the hell of the christian belief system, I've actually made the same point you did about the pit.
I agree with you though, it is in the context of retribution, I would only point out that it wasn't from God per se, but the authors of the various books and according to them, it will happen regardless. Just saying.
Great point though, I'm glad you mentioned that, maybe more will look that reference up.
On one, yes-duly noted. I basically hole the hold thing metaphorically, but many don't.
Two, isn't it though? I was raised in the church and I think we might share a similar view on this. I've always interpreted this in a cataclysmic sense as well... Something they really struggle to describe back then.
I would define 'hell' as being utterly cut-off from "God," for lack of a better word.
Recall Jesus casting out legion; the demon(s) preferred to inhabit swine opposed to being cast into the dark emptiness of the desert. Noteworthy, despite that basically happening anyway. lol
Read Enoch, by chance?
If this wasn't so ridiculous,it would really be sad.
Seems to me that according to the fairytale, the character called "God" brought the fire and brimstone, not the people
What fairytale was that from?
Is there anything that Liberals and progressives don't screw up?
Politicians are the devil! :)
I've never known a religious nutter.
There is no group of people nuttier than atheists. Atheists believe that we came from little green men from outer space.
Please, there's children in here!
I'm guessing you have no butt hairs.
scrot? are you English of something?
I'm German and Swiss
Nobody here wants to hear about flagelence fetish.
Only a progressive liberal hater of America would fart while waving the stars and stripes.
A flag pole would obviously just fall out of a progressive liberals butt unless the flag pole was 2ft. wide.
auto spell sucks almost as much as you and all of your socks do.
I wouldn't know. We've never discussed that in my Mensa group.
Fart fetish is almost as bad as poo fetish.
They both come from the same place.
A friend of mine believes that farts are poo dust floating through the air and that's why they smell like poo.
Could you heat your house with it?
I saw a video of a guy lighting a cig. lighter over a man hole cover lid and it almost blow his head off.
Isn't it Muphys law that says dumb asses will be breed out because of things like this?
How is the tea party a religious group?
Religious nutters are people who can't stop thinking about or talking about religion such as those empty headed atheists.
Or maybe you're the nutter and you don't know it.
You are a silly young thing aren't you?
There is nothing silly about the truth.
You don't say? Tell me more about this "truth" of which you speak.
Just Google truth. I'm not you bitch.
When did I claim to be a Christian?
I never get my amirite account mixed up with my checking or savings accounts.
Yes, I have a team of accountants who take care of most of that stuff. Sorry but I don't give out my investment strategies.
Why would a liberal such as yourself be interested in being successful anyway? I thought liberals hated successful people.
There is a law against monopolists. There is no law against being successful. Rich and successful people should not be punished for things such as building the railroads, the Internets, the power grids, the subways and the oil rigs.
