i was taught "hell/hades" is nothing more than eternal death ie: eternal seperation from God. no ressurection. i dont have to suffer if that is the case. that should be more than enough in itself. to never feel peace again
Always be careful with the "nothing more" things that you hear.
However first I will agree with you: Hell is eternal separation from God. It's worth to note that that's a lot worse than to never feel peace again... Because God is present everywhere (he cannot not be present), thus Love is present in hell, and your separation from this Love means not just to be without it, but to be saying eternally "no" to this incomprehensibly great Love. That's what makes hell truly hellish.
And then I'll add that scripture also knows about a resurrection for the damned, they will rise to be judged and then be thrown into hell because of their decision to not accept God's Mercy in the face of Truth Himself.
It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. (Mt 5:29)
So, since you'll have a body in hell too, it might be more like a real place... But as you said, the main thing is not whatever detail is added, it would be enough to be without God for eternity.
@Indrid-Cold the so-called believers doesn't even mean what they've just said and believe,well most of them are to be exact but claimed they're religion and belief is the only way of living at the same time which actually supress the feelings of hatred toward other's beliefs and action despite of considering for what they've just did to the others by punishing the sinners,infidels and non-believers and call it self-justice and self-righteous for the world's interest according to their own rule through their belief system of standard.
@petrapark3r i started hating it since last time when it came unexpectedly... rest everything was fine till then
Do you mean when someone you loved died unexpectedly? Yeah, I can definitely relate to that. I don't like the death of those I love to be honest. And I am more afraid of their death, than of my own. Well I'm not afraid of my own but you get the idea...
@Marcomarco okay the thing was all that was a whole lot of vague rubbish lol, like I know literally anything or anyone u cant just stamp good, or bad, I mean you can, but that would be taking the easy way out. But religion is so deep rooted in cultures, it effects so much of how a person is.
Like the Gun argument, its in the 2nd ammendment right of an American to bear arms, and it shapes a more violent culture where things are settled with guns, while guns are completely forbided and against the law in a lot of countries like Japan for instance, where u must go through strict regulations to get one, in the most docile non violent countries.
Although I understand the point ur getting at, like in the end of the day it is up to the person not the religion itself, but the religion itself greatly influences how u act and behave as a person, that forms the good or bad question.
