That reminded me of the former Pope of the Catholics:We are living our Hell right here and now, as we go through daily struggles, temptations, trials, abuse, death, drugs, alcoholism etc. We are truly living our Hell right now.
John Paul II believed that hell is also now but the difference is that you would only have that if you separate youself from God.Hell, by contrast, was “the ultimate consequence of sin itself . . . Rather than a place, Hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy”.
I agree that what we go through here on earth is sometime very bad.It appears you and I have the same mind-set. Our Father should receive all the Glory, and He does, and we are so humble and thankful that God still continues to use us as an instrument for His Kingdom.
Thankyou for this useful postAn interesting heading huh!
I was sure that would grab your attention..
As Christians, do we have any hope about the subject of Hell? Interesting, because not many Christians have pondered this question.. I say we do.. And let me explain why I say that.
Our hope as Christians; when we see or think about hate, violence, terrorism, anti-Christian, anti-Semitism, anarchy, corruption, cheating spouses, suicide and even Hell itself. Have you ever thought that this is as close to Hell you and I will ever see? It's true! We are living our Hell right here and now, as we go through daily struggles, temptations, trials, abuse, death, drugs, alcoholism etc. We are truly living our Hell right now. For after you and I die we will forever be in Heaven with our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.
But on the other side of this coin, the unbelievers who live here and now are as close to Heaven as they will ever be. They now can experience love, kindness, gentleness, grace, mercy and yet when they die; they go to Hell itself, where there is no love, peace, or meekness. A place of hatred and darkness, a place where one can not find God or His Love.
The world is a dark place, a place of spiritual battles and rebellion. But the good news is.. Once we cross over, we will never have to see or think about death, substance abuse, hatred, or any kind of violence. For we will be in perfect Paradise
