I personally have issues with participating in the worship of a deity that would send perfectly nice people who leave positive impacts on other to a place of eternal damnation just because those people donâ€™t know about/acknowledge that deityâ€™s existence as well! It seems funny to me that the relationships with people and strides taken to improve the quality of life for others isnâ€™t even taken into consideration when it comes to the afterlife for some people: itâ€™s just picking the â€œrightâ€ religion. If that god does exist, I still wonâ€™t partake in the religion. Personally, Iâ€™d sooner just go to Hell then spend all eternity with that egomaniac.
I also donâ€™t keep friends that tell me I am going to go to Hell. I donâ€™t think that is very nice, and there is no reason for me to put up with it. When I am told that I am going to burn, etc., I usually just reply that I do not believe that Hell or say that it couldnâ€™t have been much worse than my childhood.
