"hell is 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".

From my earliest days of cognition, I have lived in hell then.
I am in hell now.  Life is hell?  For me, it's pretty good while it lasts, pain-free.

When I die I expect this hell to end (for me).  And the late Pope would seem to agree.

Hedonists and humanists=no difference.  We're all living hells.

Uh, gorsh, Mickey!

For the pagans were here before Jesus
it was, of Mother Nature they adored.
They had never read the true book of nodus
or sought, of redemptions status implored.

Ah, but you won't see this old tat past his final tap.
Turn on some light and do carry on.
And do be gentle, and ever-warm.

Lovely people of faith, or not,
remain pro-life, and anti-rot.


Joy!

OMG, Ixi's back!

She's a teen and not a Christian.
My Christian friends patiently work to convert her to the right Way.

"CHRISTIANITY is not the vanity of men! it's the way we live. it's the way we think. jesus died for us all, not just the christians. that doesn't make us vain. if we thought we were the only ones going to heaven, then we might seem vain."

Nice ideas..
Too bad that's not anywhere close to what the bible says.
Just look at the most known verse in the world:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Pay attention to what it clearly proclaims:
That only he who believes in jesus will have everlasting life..
Or as Mark 16:16 puts it:

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
But he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mark 16:16

"HE THAT DOESN'T BELIEVE WILL BE DAMNED." (Go to hell.)
Now how can you read this and still say "christians aren't the only ones going to heaven"?

How vain is thy premise, and man’s ormolu
that he by believing, be not trou-de loup.

For God he looked down in great anger
when he saw how Dollar’s brother accrue
For though rich be the righteous intention
when the poor gave of nothing there too.

For the eye of God’s needle comes closer
and indulgence a slacks not in its pace
For who could be said, is the loser
when the Bible, heeds not its lost place.

Unknown 11:10PM, thanks for that instant clarity
for the now-corrected make-believe Christian.

You'd think they'd know their religion.
