I saw this link as a text ad on my gmail account.

What I have to say about it…

propaganda = genius
satan = genius
prayer > genius

To say that there is no hell is to call Jesus a liar, and quite frankly, that makes me mad.

There is a hell, and this heretic just may discover how real it is.

Jesus himself says this: "Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’ "

Interesting how these biblical “scholars” can always read right over biblical truths and project their own words and ideas into the Gospels. It’s no wonder why the Church did not encourage personal biblical study and interpretation for so many centuries.

Oh there is a hell alright. And I am in no hurry to see it.

I can’t take the credit for it, though. :slight_smile: Archbishop Fulton Sheen did a speech with that topic. You can find it in EWTN’s audio archives.

Here’s a poem that his excellency once cited:

The Devil

Men don’t believe in a devil now as their fathers used to do
They force the door of the broadest creed to let His Majesty through.
There isn’t a print of his cloven foot or a fiery dart from his bow
To be found in earth or air today, for the world has voted so.

But who is mixing the fatal draught that palsies heart and brain?
And loads the earth of each passing year with ten hundred thousand slain?
Who blights the bloom of the land today with the fiery breath of hell,
If the devil isn’t and never was – won’t somebody rise and tell?

Who dogs the steps of the toiling saint and digs the pit for his feet?
Who sows the tares in the field of time, wherever God sows His wheat?
The devil is voted not to be, and of course, the thing is true,
But who is doing the kind of work the devil alone should do?

We are told he does not go about as a roaring lion now,
But whom shall we hold responsible for the everlasting row
To be heard in home, in church, in state, to the earth’s remotest bound,
If the devil by a unanimous vote is nowhere to be found?

Won’t somebody step to the front forthwith, and make his bow and show
How the frauds and the crimes of the day spring up, for surely we want to know.
The devil was fairly voted out, and of course, the devil is gone.
But simple people would like to know, who carries his business on?

Herbert Trench, Irish-born playwright (1865-1923)
