Hell?

Just when did god create hell? It was not in the beginning, just heaven and the earth were according to Genesis. Just where was god if there was no heaven? After all we are taught that is where god is, so again where was god before he has a place to call home? And why does there have to be place we call hell? God wasn’t good enough in creating all his things and needed a place to put the rejects? Satan, I am guessing that god made the angels or were they the other gods god was jealous of? Any how if god made the angels, how come his best creations or his first I guess rebelled against him? Seems god made a mistake here, the people he created also seem to keep rebelling, another mistake, guess we do need a hell to put these rejects in, there are so many of them. Of course regarding the people sent to hell, just how many is god sending as opposed to how many are sent by each different sect of gods religions. After all I believe my way and of course I am right so you all are going to hell if you disagree, right? Guess we are all going to hell, after all we are all right so all others are wrong and god will punish all wrong thinkers. What arrogance mankind has why must every group think they are the best there is? Why would any group be better than any other? If a god made us all, then all are equal and the same. Is that not what is meant by all are equal in the eyes of god? If all are equal then all are going some sort of hell, for no person is perfect. Most of the ideas of hell come from Dante book, people just love to believe the worst without ever checking the facts of truth. Judge not least you be judged, which is what people do all the time, never really thinking of what may or may not be true. So more people for the hell they believe in. Would a truly loving and forgiving god really send his people to such a place? Just because there are people who mistreat children, must the god and gods we made up do the same? I once asked religious leader to show me just where the story of devil was in the bible, he wouldn’t or couldn’t do it, I have always wondered why? Guess he didn’t want his belief questioned. Lost a girl friend once because I didn’t believe in her god, yet she knew nothing about the Bible and what was really in it, she was one of those who believe without knowing why and never questioned the idea at all.

So which came first, Hell or Satan? If Satan was a good angel in the beginning, there was no need for a Hell. If the all knowing god new Satan was going to rebel and had Hell waiting, well why wait, just create hell with Satan already in it. But then why create evil at all? But god created man in “OUR image, after OUR likeness” which tells me that there are more than one god around, which also makes one think that the gods were also good and evil to start with. “Behold the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil”, Us, again gods are mentioned. Gods knowing good and evil, why would gods  need to be good or evil? Makes the gods sound like they are just normal people after all, gee maybe that’s why the gods were made in mans image, cause they were made up by mankind. The arrogant people who think they are the best thing on this world, the ones who thought the whole universe was made just for them. The ones who believed the Sun revolved around the Earth, the Earth their god made just for them. And these people are the ones who thought the earth was flat and would punish any who said different, are the ones we still choose to believe when the idea of a god is being taught.  Maybe we need that Hell after all, for we need a place to put the children who refuse to grow up and learn the truth of the world.

The Devil 1

I keep hearing that the best trick of the Devil is in getting people to not believe in him. Well I would think the best trick the Devil could do is to get people to believe he is a religious leader, like the Pope, or any of the big names in  Christianity. Just think of the evil done to other people in the name of God or Christ, were these the work of good god fearing people or followers of the Devil?  Not a hard question for people who think, but try to get a hard core believer to ponder the thought might be very hard. Once knew a fellow who had this answer to anything about God or Christ, “God said it, the Bible quotes it and that ends it”.  No room for thought there, to bad that fellow didn’t know that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of stories or books that the Catholic Church put together. The Bible is and was just the stories they thought would fit what they wanted the people to believe in. Nice to have the power to make your religion go just the way you want it do. Back when this was done, most people didn’t know how to read or have access to the books to choose what they may have wanted to believe in. The Catholic Church forced its dogma down the throats of the people. Believe or be excommunicated and condemned to Hell, not much of a choice. Believe or be considered a hieratic and suffer torture or burning at the stake, both good ways to get people to follow the church. And this was considered the Christian way to be? Sounds more like what a devil would come up with. Sounds like not Heaven on Earth but Hell on Earth. We may not burn people any more for their difference of opinion in religion, but we still kill and use different forms of torture. We desecrate the temples, churches and mosques of people just because they have a different beliefs than we do. Is this not the work of what a devil would want people to do? So did the Devil get his way by making people believe they were doing good with all of these evil ways in the name of some god or gods?
