God gives with one and takes with another.

I am a Catholic, though not a practicing one.
Something occurred to me today that found me in a state of bother.
Heaven in my eyes exists.
Hell exists also.
Although, Heaven is a place where I have never been or seen before. We depict it to be joyous and beautiful and a place full of no pain or suffering, just true splendor.
So, automatically you would think that I would believe as part of my religion that Hell is a deep hole in the ground where Satan lives. It is a place full of fire and darkness. And anybody who has ever sinned in their lifetime or who does not believe in the Lord or Jesus will go to Hell when they die.


In my opinion, Hell is right in front of us. We are in Hell.
Planet Earth is Hell.
If Earth wasn’t Hell why would there be illness, why would there be sadness, why would there be robbery, why would there be rape, why would there be murder?
Many more awful things and people exist in our world, and I think there are some people in this world that make our society Hell for others.

For some, they live in Hell all the time. Think about drug addicts, homeless people, people who live in constant poverty who don’t even know when their next meal will come, do you not think that that is Hell?
You may have a different opinion, but this is just how I see our world.
Each one of us has evil inside of us; it is just unfortunately human nature. It cannot be stopped or prevented in anyway.
So when I say: “I know where Hell is”; you’re looking at it, you are breathing it in, you are eating it, you are smelling it, you are touching it, you are living in it.

We are evil and welcome to Hell.

"Each one of us has evil inside of us; it is just unfortunately human nature" - glad you stated that, it is clear by looking at the world around us that humanity is totaly depraved. However, through Grace alone there can be love and righteous acts that doesnt seem to fit in a place called hell.

I am an agnostic, which means that i dont deny the existence of god, and i dont believe in him either. If there was a heaven and there was a hell, i think that your perspective on the topic is a very good one. Well done.

While it is true that Earth is like hell , it is also like heaven in some aspects. However, I see what you're saying and your article's written really well. It captures people's attention, even if they disagree with you.

"Have you ever had so much to say that your mouth closed up tight struggling to harness the nuclear force coalescing within your words? Have you ever had so many thoughts churning inside you that you didn’t dare let them escape in case they blew you wide open? Have you ever been so angry that you couldn’t look in the mirror for fear of finding the face of evil glaring back at you?" — Ellen Hopkins

You have a very interesting perpective but I have to say I disagree. Yes the world is not a perfect place but I wouldn't exactly say its hell . I agree with when you were talking about the evil in mankind and everything but what about the people who really honestly try to live good lives. I imagine Hell being like the horrible parts of Earth times a million and (no pun intended) a whole hell of a lot hotter. Also I dont think God would punish us without even giving us a chance first.

No. It's just that Hell is other people.

The Lord is what created Earth, and he most certainly did NOT create Hell . Look around you at all the beauty that is in this world. God created the stars and the trees, and even you.Once you have taken into consideration the cold hard FACTS then you can rethink where exactly you think Hell is.

If earth is hell then they would not exist love here either would it? Humans create pain for themselves, not the earth. And love can be found just about everywhere you look if you concentrate... if this is hell , then the flowers wouldnt smile up the the sun every day :)

Thanks! I think that it is just a different perspective on the world we live in.
