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)

Great Job!

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' emphasis

Is 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)
I know this discussion was a while ago, but I've now been through Mark's Gospel and written up my findings here. You might find the conclusions interesting.--CPalmer 13:47, 14 December 2008 (EST)
