    when you are set free from satanic dogma like, the immortality of the soul, hell-fire
    and the teaching of the trinity.

    i think its impossible to know, all we can do is weigh up the evidence and go with the most likely option.

    When you've read an ancient book of myths and fairy tales telling us we all hellbound "sinners" destined for the lake of fire because some naked bloke in a magic garden ate some naughty apple from a magic tree - but by submitting to baby jeebus we can all be saved™!

    That's when you know "The Truth™"

    A much easier question is 'how do you know something is not the truth'. The answer is simple: when it is logically inconsistent. The key here is that the term 'truth' is a logical one.
    Note that logical inconsistency may be internal to a claim or when comparing that claim to other things you believe to be the truth (evidence etc).

    Answering from a purely altruistic non-caring stance I would say something like "I resonate with it and I recognizes this Truths resonance"

    Mind you we could be talking about different "Truths" here. Or are you referring to the One Truth which all others come from? Because I dont really get that, if that is what you mean.

    aye, I was mistaken to think my magical soul would burn forever and ever and ever and ever. It's actually going to burn

    forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ... and ever and ever and ever and ever and ... and ...

    All because I cannot delude myself into believing in magic and twinkle dust explanations for the things which happen/ed in the universe.

    How about this as an explanation:

    "Use of the upper case "T" in Truth tends to signify that whatever is designated using that word tends to be anything but."

    http://weekendpundit.org/2012/03/lying-for-the-cause-serves-no.html

    So basically you know you know The Truth when you figure out that it's a Big Lie.

    magic and twinkle dust,( or other like devices), should not be mentioned in this forum if the poster desires any ounce of respect.

    And there are so many logical problems with hell. I guess they would have to keep turning up the heat until infinity otherwise we might get used to it 🙄
    The hell idea is up there with the 6000 year Earth idea for me. Inconceivable. Makes me think you have to be under 13 to join this site

    Sure. You always have a ring to your explanations, and Jo has left himself wide open with this question...
