    Ray Comfort needs to be censured for creating all these annoying Jesusbots.

    You really have no concept of hell, do you?
    Hell is without God. God is the provider. There is nothing to do in hell. There is not beer. There are no loud speakers. There isn't even a ball to play a game with. There is nothing, nada, zero, zilch, zip. Satan isn't capable of providing anymore than you or I are. Why do you think the demons are so interested in possessing humans? So they can experience something besides pain again.
    Hell is a hot and very nasty place where souls reside and get to do nothing but think about the words all those pesky Christians told them and wonder why they didn't bother to check it out.

    I would like to point a few things out to you DF my good friend.

    1) If God is omnipresent surely he would be present in hell. Thus Hell would be with God.
    2) If God is so loving and forgiving why condemn people to hell
    3) Satan is just a biblical figure expropriated by the christians and then represented as evil as a tactic to scare people into converting. Satan in fact is the paragon of enlightenment and freedom (no bible references but I am thinking of one Aleister Crowley).
    4) I recal reading in one gospel (Matthew?) that heaven is seven times the tempreature of the sun (or something of that kind). Thus surely heaven would be hotter then hell. Agree? I also dont understand how one could have eternal rest with that reputed light of God (think of Moses after meeting God). Everyone in heaven must suffer from insomnia!

    P.S. Still I bet Satan throws a good barbie.

    [EDIT] Just to add to my fourth point. Hell must be cooler then heaven since it consists of molten brimstone (and brimstone has a much lower melting temperature then the temperature of the sun).

    Nope, God can't stand the presence of sin.

    Guess he must hate humans since we are polluted with that terrible original sin. Now I understand why Jesus was so often mean to his disciples.

    Jesus was never mean. You are just deluted by the lie of Satan and the World.

    Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

    What about when Jesus accused his disciples of being ignorant? Or when he said Peter was Satan (this reference I can recall: Mark 16 ?-?)

    At that point they did not truly know the Lord in a personal way not until he came back.

    Luke 24:44-49 (Verse 45 is what I am pointing you at)

    44 He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."

    45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.
    46 He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,
    47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
    48 You are witnesses of these things.
    49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."

    Once you open your heart to him, he will open the Scriptures to you to also. And then you might understand Matthew Ch. 25.

    Well, could you explain the original sin part then?
