I’ve been considering this notion of spending and eternity in hell.
If you consider hell to be the worst possible place imaginable, with the fire and the brimstones, does this not seem like an excessive punishment for a lifetime of sin?
Compare the average lifespan of a human to eternity: eternity - 72 years is still eternity. We really aren’t given much chance to do good, especially if you die young. (What was the average lifespan at the time of Christ?) And there’s still a risk you’ve picked the wrong religion dispite a lifetime as a saint.
So does this seem reasonable? Would even the most vengeful God really banish us to hell for eternity? Even an eternity in limbo seems harsh. Is there a possibility that one could get out of hell?
