I have seen this question posed in the past from non-believers and I was wondering if some would share their genuine HONEST feelings on this. If Hell was not a punishment for disbelieving that Jesus truly is the Christ and died for our sins, would you be a Christian today?
I know I am just dealing in hypotheticals here but it is an interesting quandry to examine (at least it is for me). If you go to other boards (not just here on CAF), it seems Hell is mentioned a LOT MORE than Heaven. I know it’s not as prevalent on here as elsewhere (look at CARM for instance) though and I commend the members for that.
If you take Hell out of the equation though, why else would you choose to be Christian when we are constantly harrased, ridiculed, and made fun of mainly through the mainstream media. I would love to hear some diverse reasons why you would remain faithful if the punishment of Hell was taken off the table. God bless you all.
