Hey Guys----


Who does the bible say is going to Hell? Does the concept of a Hell fit into the structure of believing in a God of Love? How merciful and understanding is God anyways? Is it right for God to send to Hell one who lives a good life and then get sent to Hell for masturbating 10 minutes before being fatally hit by a bus? Is it possible to be sorry for one's sins a minutes after death, or is it too late?

Before the moderators do this Myrrh, trust me on this the Hell topic has been talked about a hell of a lot (yes I know I am hilarious). If you check the search function there have been a many a heated debates and even your "cyber lover" GIC has as usual an interesting point to put forward. Here are just a few of them:

Would someone who was ready for heaven masturbate ten minutes before death?

Anastasios, through your question, a person might not be ready for heaven by masturbating ten minutes before being hit by a bus, but should they be condemned to Hell for all Eternity for it? What I mean is, is God that kind of Deity to do that...you know, give a permanent 'F' on the report card with no chance for summer school.....?

Do not use OCnet forums to sexually harrass members.
I ask those involved on this thread to reflect for a moment- what if the situation was reversed, and two male posters were talking like this about a female poster?
Shame on you all.
