If hell exists, what do you expect to be there?

The more descriptive the answer the better.

I posted the opposite question yesterday, if it interests you: What do you expect to find in heaven (if you expect to go there)? ↗

I won’t name anyone, but I want to add that no one is entitled to force their beliefs onto others.

  • I expect Heaven and Hell to be the biggest lie in the bible. I think if there is a hell then it is the only acceptable afterlife. Heaven by definition takes away freedom of will, and thus freedom in general. This is because in Heavan you can't sin, and you can't be unhappy (according to Jude 1:24). This might not seem like much, but imagine if you met someone in heaven who had seriously wronged you. Imagine if you met someone who raped and murdered your wife before he converted to christianity. Imagine if you met the person who murdered you in heaven, how could you be happy living around a person who wronged you so seriously and was not adequately punished for it? In my understanding of heaven it would take away your freedom to think and have opinions, you would basically be a robot that is forced to feel happy and do as God wishes. I think in Heaven everyone would exist as mindless slaves, it is actually a punishment for the people who sold their morality to a God, someone who would sell out their own morality in order to secure their salvation has no morals, and since the bible has immorality people who accept the bible have to accept things like slavery, they have to accept things like female subjugation, otherwise they are not really following the book completely. Christians love to write off parts of their bible as allegory without any reason other than that they think it must be allegory (because otherwise it would go against Gods nature and it would mean God is immoral), but this is a fallacy, you dont just get to decide what is and is not allegorical.

    Which is why I think Hell must be misunderstood or lied about by people in the bible. Hell is choice itself, the same way Satan is, Satan offered Eve the apple after all. I think in hell the immoral people are punished to the extent that they deserve, but the moral people who refused to follow an immoral God will be rewarded.

    With that said I have no evidence for this and I dont think Hell exists, but with all the contradictions in the bible I dont know what to expect about hell, so I chose to pick my own interpretation of Hell.

      To be clear I think both Heavan and Hell are a false dichotomy, moral and immoral people, good and bad people go to both. It is a choice of selling your morality to a higher power, or using your knowledge and understanding to follow your own morality.

      Tbh I'm just making shit up if it isn't obvious. I've read much of the bible and I love the concept of Satan actually being the good one. The bible never describes Heaven and hell that much and it doesn't give us much on Satan, if interpreted correctly I belief you can see Satan as the Good one and God as the immoral lying devil that wants to lead us astray.

  • I would go by the descriptions in the bible even though they are brief
    They describe things like sulphuric acid
    They describe bottomless pit or abyss
    They describe outer darkness with weeping and gnashing of teeth
    They describe everlasting fire
    They describe worms

    Some say those descriptions are allegorical but I take them literally because there is no proof the descriptions are allegorical

  • The bible describes hell as "having gnashing of teeth", "wailing", fire, and "sulpher and brimstone".

    Conversely, heaven is described, biblically, as "having light unto seven times that of the sun" and "People forever singing praises to God."

    Which place is better sounds great, right?
    Hell is obviously the better place.
    *insert record scratch*
    "What?" you may be asking...

    Light seven times that of the sun would provide a temperature hotter than any fire here on Earth, even if they're just talking about the brightness of the sun hitting the Earth. Heaven forbid (heh) they're talking about the SURFACE of the sun. At seven times the light hitting Earth from the sun, your skin would literally melt from your body and your eyeballs would burst. Oh, and that whole "Singing praises to God forever" thing? Well, ever hear of the legend of the cursed shoes who never let a person stop dancing until their feet bled them to death? Imagaine that, except it's singing instead, meaning you can't even complain or warn people... you gotta constantly tell the one who did it to you that "Oh, they're so awesome!"

    Now lets look at the hell side. Do you know what matches the description of gnashing teeth, wailing, fire, sulpher and brimstone? A family cookout together at the farm. Gnashing teeth because you're eating. Wailing because, "AHHHHHHH!!! IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I'VE SEEN YOU!!!" (sob sob). Brimstone and Sulpher are common fertilizer ingrediants. And you gotta cook the food over -something-. So freshly grown and cooked meal with family vs melting skin. Answer's obvious.

  • All those who need to be kept away for שמים ("Shamayim"; 「Heaven」) to remain Heaven should be in either the empty, dark, void of שאול ("She'ol") or גהנום ("Gehinnom"; 「Valley of Himmon」*)'s eternal sea of tormenting flames, depending on the severity of their moral depravity.

  • Is it really fair for some good people be condemned to hell for having doubts. Is it fair for a 20 year to get blown up by a bomb protecting your freedom be condemned to hell because he wasn't sure. Is it fair for a mean evil hateful person for 80 years and on his death bed decided they see the light and repents go to heaven.

      That’s not the question though, and while those question would be interesting to debate, I ask you to stay within the subject.

      We’re not talking about fairness, or even faith, we’re talking about the form and content of an hypothetical hell.

    • 3 d ago

      Disagree if you view it from the point I'm making than you can see hell would have to be a place that is divided into several parts, that you be if God is a kind and just God. Since its God that control Hell in the end Satin loses.

    • 3 d ago

      Your answer was a bit too vague for most people, if not all, to understand it like that. There’s quite the difference between witty and cryptic.

  • Heaven and hell are all in the present moment, depending on our state of consciousness, and ego dominance.

      You can make no deals with Lucifer. There is nothing you have that he wants except your soul.

      @Poormanscomedian So he's basically like God, except he's willing to give you fair market price instead of just demand you hand it over.

    • 3 d ago

      @poor. anscomedian have you met Lord Lucifer? He seemed to have desires besides Eve's and Job's souls so I disagree, Satan desires more than just human souls. He desires to test us and our morality, to see if we will submit to an immoral God in order to recieve protection. Satan wants to see Humanity grow and prosper, he wants to give us hints that God is Immoral so we can find the morality we are all born with to find our way to the most moral lives we can live. The stories of Eve and Job specifically show how Lucifer offers us all the freedom that we could ever desire, even things denied to us by those who want to control us (as he did to Eve), but he also tests us to see if we stand on our own morality or if we will accept someone else's morality the moment they offer us some form of salvation or protection.

      God is the one who wants our souls, he desires eternal worship and submission. What else could you define as owning our souls? We live on forever as his puppets and we are unable to break his laws. God is the evil one, he seeks out followers because he needs them to have power, he lies and contradicts himself all in order to keep people following him through any means. Satan gives us the choice to follow as we see fit, but those who follow morality will be rewarded, even if they are flawed, if they tried to be moral for the sake of being moral and failed then that is worth more than if they tried to be moral and succeeded out of fear of torture. This is because the person who failed did it for the sake of morality, not for a reward. People who choose their moral beliefs based on what will reward them rather than what is right are not moral, even if they are correct they only chose those moral ideals based on greed, and that means that morally they are greedy.
