"The images of hell that Sacred Scripture presents to us must be correctly interpreted. They show the complete frustration and emptiness of life without God. Rather than a place, Hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy".
I am getting the hang of this now. The Bible is not God’s Word but written by from a human perspective. An ancient and more primitive one full of anthropomorphism.
So we take a take a more nuanced and sophisticated view of any part of the Bible we like and interpret it to mean whatever we want it to. This explains how we have come to have so many Bible based religions that all believe different things.
Let me have a go at this - it looks like fun.
HELL is suffering among humans caused a number of things:
Giving in to greed and amassing material possessions bought on credit .
The burning ravages of sexually transmitted diseases caught from ignoring the Bibles commands regarding chastity in favour of satisfying lustful cravings.
Also a burning sensation in the throat caused by the way non-Christians pollute the air in their quest for pleasure and material gain which would include radiation fallout.
It is all starting to make sense now.
Who is the Pope Christ in the flesh or man?
Well he is not mentioned in the Bible at all - so let's spin him around and see whether he lands heads or tails.
