Fear of Hell

How afraid of hellfire are you on a regular basis?


#2

I suspect that a little bit of fear of the fire is good for us, so as to help keep us in line.

could we end up therE?

It actually never crosses my mind.

Sometimes I am afraid because I think I’m not good enough or I’ve made too many mistakes but all I can do is try to be better and pray about it. I know there is no way to earn our way to heaven but sometimes I wonder if there isn’t more I can do. I work 2 jobs to support my husband and myself so I don’t have very much spare time to volunteer or even to go to church as much as I’d like. I just hope that I have enough faith to get to heaven because I can’t even imagine the alternative!!
