Is There A Hell And Did God Create It?

It is interesting to note that hell in Tibet is a cold place because that country is so cold that a hot hell

would be a place of comfort for any sinner. It is obvious that hell is not a nice place, but one of torment. But let’s reason together: Did God, who is infinitely loving and good, create an evil place for His disobedient children?

A clear reading of the bible shows that hell is a figure of speech, symbolizing a sinful state of existence as the parable of Dives and Lazarus shows. A hellish condition is the result of our own thoughts. This is what Jesus taught and we as Christian Scientists challenge anyone to refute that. It is strange that when Jesus talks about cutting off the right hand or plucking out the right eye if they offend you, we know that he does not mean that literally; yet we take the word hell out of context and give it a literal interpretation. Unwittingly, we make God, divine Love, into a monster. If God created hell for sinners there would be no help for us, and hell would be a good thing.

In the Books of Leviticus, Kings, and Jeremiah God warned the children of Israel against the abominable heathen practice of sacrificing their children in the fire to Molech. It states clearly that such a practice never occurred to God. The time has come for Christians to stop teaching that God created a hell to burn up sinners eternally. It is a wicked doctrine. Over and over again, the Bible refutes this hideous lie. Again, In the Book of Job, it says, Touching the Almighty …..: He will not afflict. The psalms abound in praise to God for He is good and His mercy endures forever. Isaiah says can a mother forget her sucking child? They may forget but I won't. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands, and Jeremiah reminds us that God loves us with an everlasting love.

The eternal fire the Bible talks about is the purifying fire of the Holy Ghost that cleanses us from sin for flesh and blood cannot enter Heaven. Every sinner must stop playing the fool and accept themselves as a child of God, for God won't rest until every knee bows to the truth of being. Even if we make our bed in hell, even there shall His right hand leads us. We cannot get away from God.

God is so good that He did not create evil or hell, for that matter.
