6. H3. What was the effect of the Reformation, or what is your view of it?
The Reformation really hurt Europe as a whole. I believe that Europe will never be as powerful as it was before it was torn in two by the Reformation.
- Good insight about tearing Europe apart. Endless war followed for hundreds of years. Will use as a model.
7. H7. Dante's great work about Hell: something we should hear more about today? Your view, please.
We should hear more about hell in our society today. Hell is real, and hell is not a place that anyone wants to end up. I was once talking to an atheist and suggested to her that wouldn't it be better to be safe than sorry. She brushed me off by saying that 'if' hell was real, then she was going to have a party there. It is sad to see how many people are completely ignorant of the what hell is really going to be like.
- You're exactly right. The less talk about hell, the more people thumb their nose at God. We don't get rid of prisons. Why do we stop talking about Hell? Imagine what life would be like if there was no criminal punishment. Nobody, not even atheists, would want to like in such a society.
- Well done! 70/70. Perfect!
