A true Christian does not revile when he hears error. Any Christian that would lynch a man for making an untrue statement is caught in the ego. A true Christian dies daily and so puts an end to his ego for the higher good which is his calling.

At least that's what I've heard.

The concept of HELL as presented by most christians, that hell is a place of eternal suffering for those who die without christ, was conceived by a medieval bishop who was trying to scare people into coming to church. True Christianity teaches that The wages of sin are death. That's all. You no longer exist. The total absence of God.
I converted to Catholicism 4 years ago. I was not taught to hate anyone. Most of the people I meet in the catholic community feel the same way as I do. I hate no one.
My 18 year old son is a "homo". When I first started to suspect that he was gay, I went thru some tough times. This is a difficult thing for a father to accept. But after alot of prayer, research, and talking to my son, I have come to peace with the knowledge that my son is gay. Anyone who meets him and talks to him is instantly charmed by him. Their preconceived thoughts and stereotypes disappear. He is a good boy who happens to be gay. I am a christian. I hate no one. Do I wish that he were not gay? Of course. Do I love him any less? Of course not.

I really think that the traditional "hell" is blown way out of proportion. I think that a person creates their own hell through loosing their personality through certian events in life, ie: homocide, suicide, or just plain being a rotton asshole to everyone and everything. If a person is happy with life and exercizes their personal energy, only good energy will come to them when they die. Going to hell is just loosing your personal life-force through life.

I know many people have difficulty grasping the concept of Hell. I think it's the Anglican church that believes Hell is nothing more than a state of 'seperation from God'. My belief is that Hell is a place of torment, and while I find myself asking why God would punish His creations, I find my answers when I open the news paper. Today at work there was a story about a father who shot and killed his wife, his two kids, and then himself. Whoever this wicked man was, when he put the gun barrel to his head he was hoping with all his heart that nothing would exist after he pulled the trigger. People get away with their crimes all the time on earth, and that is why God will punish them. Regarding Hell and disbelief in God, I find it hard to accept that God would simply allow a disbeliever to no longer exist after death - since that is exactly what infidels believe in, and with that belief they do mischief in the world. They choose the reward of this life over the next, so they spend the rest of eternity in torment playing it out.

I converted to Catholicism 4 years ago. I was not taught to hate anyone. Most of the people I meet in the catholic community feel the same way as I do. I hate no one.

I very much agree. The only thing I hate in this world is Shaitan, who continues to corrupt my fellow man.

God bless you.
