Sure, if you actually believe in all that utter BS.
Why don't you think about it. You have this god miles above mere humans and this god thinks nothing about putting people into a place that burns their bodies forever?
Come on, don't you see all that crap was just invented by men to control other men? Just like everything else in organized religions.
Thinking there is a hell where people go to be burned forever by a god so far above any human in intelligence and compassion would be like men making a special place for pet hamsters who misbehave. like giving them electric shocks at irregular intervals for the rest of the hamster's life.
There are several aspects of Paulism that ticks me off, and Jewish faith before it.
This is one of them. Another is 'original sin' as if an omniscient god all wise and so forth would create humans with a built in fault.
That concept is just plain reprehensible. Hell is in the same category. Another is the placing of women on a lower plane than men. Reprehensible. And backing all that up with the 'inspired by god' nonsense.
Look bitch, it's right here in the bible, women are worth 35 shekels and men are worth 50.
What kind of crap is that anyway? NO GOD WOULD SAY THAT. PERIOD.
