How can it be that so many people apparently go to hell, yet not see the devil? Does this not prove that it is not a made up event?
I really want some rational feedback. When I am afraid, I am anything but rational!
Thanks very much in advance!
Keep in mind. I was raised religious, so this is a very scary concept to me. I just want to get your views.

Not gonna read the article Habib, to be honest with you.

Always look for the evidence. Actual, undeniable evidence. Without it, claims have no weight.

And remember, don't give in to the fear or the terrorists christians win.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

You have nothing to fear but life itself.  That and fear itself.  I wish life wasn't scary, but that seems to be a survival mechanism.  Gotta go ... have to outrun a cheetah!

I fear Sithrak and the inevitable ever-cooking cooking pot he'll cook everyone in FOR ALL ETERNITY!

The powers that be are trying to control you through your fear. Will you allow that to happen?

I don't fear fearmongering itself.  I fear the simpletons on whom the fearmongering works.  Those are the people who elected Trump.

And now the fearful reaction to election partial-failure .. by the snowflakes.  Fear mongering works really well on them particularly if it is from Soros, the Puppet-master of Color Revolutions.

And snakes.  And spiders.  And letters from the IRS.  Bats maybe.  And only certain wasps or ants.

Makes me glad the place doesn't exist, is what I think.

But ... nightmares are real, in the same way all dreams are.  If your dream of utopia is real, then the nightmare is just as real.

That is a logically false equivalence.  The non-existence of one thing does not prove the non-existence of the other.

So you don't have pleasant dreams or nightmares?  It is a fact that you do.  What they represent is arguable.

Some people see Heaven when they have an NDE. I saw a brothel in Amsterdam. I had a certain billionaire's gold card.
