Talk:Essay:The Logic of Hell
Well said, Andy. If only more would take this message to heart. Bugler 08:31, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
- They will as discussion and emphasis on Hell will inevitably increase from its level of zero right now. Logic prevails, Bugler, you can count on that.--Aschlafly 08:48, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
Those interested in this subject might also like to look at Dante's Inferno. The page is a work in progress, and (as always on a wiki-based site) improvements are very welcome.--CPalmer 08:49, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
- That looks fantastic. I'll link to it, and learn from it.--Aschlafly 09:05, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
- Thanks!--CPalmer 08:58, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
Kudos to you, Andy. Hell is downplayed too much in our society, from justice to education, condemning generation upon generation of people to hell. Great job!--PhilipV
Jesus' emphasisIs it true that Jesus emphasised Hell more than Heaven? The Hell page says the opposite:
"Although hell is a focus and a concern in Christian theology, the Bible has an even greater focus. In the King James Version the word hell is mentioned 54 times, but heaven is mentioned 551 times."
I know this is referring to the whole Bible rather than just Jesus' teachings, but, without going to check, I seem to remember Jesus speaking about 'Heaven' and particularly 'the Kingdom of Heaven' more often than Hell.--CPalmer 08:31, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
- We could search simply the Gospels, I think. But note that often Hell is referenced by Jesus without using that particular word. "Gnashing of teeth" is a phrase I recall.
- I have it on good authority that Jesus emphasized Hell more than Heaven, but I certainly have an open mind about and welcome further evidence.--Aschlafly 08:54, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
- I'm not certain either way - it would be interesting to explore the Gospels with this in mind. Obviously both are important!--CPalmer 10:17, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
