Hell's darkness is the very absence of God's living, illuminating light.

In Hell Quotes
There is nothing funny about Hell. Hollywood laughs at it, but it's still not funny. A lot of people use hell as a byword or a curse word, but it's still not funny. University professors mock it, but it's not funny. Philosophers explain it away, but it's still not funny. Hell is no joke.

In Hell Quotes
Let me say to you here very clearly: it is my firm opinion, and it is my foremost conviction, and it is what I fervently preach, that HELL IS HOT.

In Hell Quotes
Hell. It's one of those topics you don't bring up in polite conversation. Yet, according to a 2004 Gallup poll, 70 percent of Americans believe in hell. What exactly they believe about hell is not spelled out, but you can be sure that lots of colorful ideas are out there. Unfortunately many of them originate from urban legends, spittle-spewing "fire and brimstone" preachers, and B-grade horror films (or some unfortunate combination of the three).

In Hell Quotes
If heaven is where people become fully human, then hell is the ultimate disintegration of what it means to be human.

In Hell Quotes
Forever, we hear of hell. During the Middle Ages, people had nightmares that were filled with visions of it. They feared hell. Talk of hell went in and out of fashion. As the Catholic Church's power broke with the Protestant divisions, hell and its clost friends of spiritualism and witchcraft gained tenuous hold. Enlightenment eroded hell's horrors and civilization learned tolerance for the Underworld. Today we believe in hell, but we don't want to believe it could be waiting for us. Hell is cold. It is lonely. It is filled with the dispossessed, the bad, the ugly, and the things about which we choose not to remember. Hell is a leftover idea from our past that we could best do without. The problem is that it will not do without us.

In Hell Quotes
Hell is a name given to a mystical place where all souls go.... We are terrified with the promise of going there when bad, and only too happy to consign our enemies into that nether world. Fire, brimstone, cold, and unhappiness, all await us in hell. It lies somewhere below us, or maybe above us, or maybe in another dimension. Perhaps we inhabit hell now, here on earth.

In Hell Quotes
Who believes in Hell? Is it a terrible place to which we sinners are condemned? Or is it a place of the imagination, fueled by fears that have built upon the superstitions and religious relics of our society?

In Hell Quotes
Hell is a state of mind. It is a remnant of ancient man's fears and an anachronism from our primitive past. I disavow it; therefore it does not exist.

In Hell Quotes
Hell doesn't even exist ... It's all in our minds. We invented it as a warning to those who don't live up to our standards.

In Hell Quotes
The greatest misconception about hell is that it doesn't exist. Just as we believe scientists when they tell us there is such a thing as gravity, so should we believe God when he tells us there is such a place as hell. Many people wonder how a merciful and caring God could send people to such a terrible place. The truth is that God doesn't send anyone to hell; people choose to go there by their own rebellion, and God honors their choice.

In Hell Quotes
I have no fear of the Hereafter. An orthodox hell could hardly be more torture than my life has been.

In Hell Quotes
Satan knows where he's headed and he knows the everlasting punishment that awaits him there. Now he wants to persuade everyone he can (including you) to follow him to that place of torment. He'll make you believe any of his lies that he can to deceive you into being his roommate in hell forever. If he can make you believe that you will rule and reign with him there, then he'll do that. If he can make you believe that hell doesn't really exist, then that's what he'll do. If he can convince you that hell is a wonderful place, that will be his tactic. Satan will do whatever it takes to stop you from believing and receiving the truth. And the truth is; Satan hates you with a passion! His only desire is to hear your agonizing screams as you share his torture in the burning flames of hell.

In Hell Quotes
The extreme horribleness of hell, as portrayed by priests and nuns, is inflated to compensate for its implausibility. If hell were plausible, it would only have to be moderately unpleasant in order to deter. Given that it is so unlikely to be true, it has to be advertised as very very scary indeed.

In Hell Quotes
Heaven and Hell are, in my opinion, much like God: a feel-good idea that swims in the minds of people, but has little bearing in reality. It's also a nifty way to control people through fear.

In Hell Quotes
[Hell is] the carrot and the stick in the chain letter that is the Christian religion.

In Hell Quotes
Hell is not evil; it's a place where evil gets punished. Hell is not pleasant, appealing, or encouraging. But Hell is morally good, because a good God must punish evil.

In Hell Quotes
Hell doesn't make God less loving. It reveals the depth of his love, which went to hell and back for us.

In Hell Quotes
As Heaven is the object of our deepest desire, Hell is the object of our deepest fear. Our hearts are so deep that we don't even know our deepest desires and fears very clearly. But we do know that these two things match each other: our deepest desire is to be freed from our deepest fear, and our deepest fear is that we fail to attain our deepest desire. So if our deepest desire is to be in a love relationship with God--with infinite understanding, infinite love, and infinite beauty--then our deepest fear is to fail to attain that deepest desire forever, to have no hope of attaining it anymore. That's why in Dante's Inferno the sign over the gate of Hell reads: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."

In Hell Quotes
It's only a popular myth that Hell doesn't exist. And it's also cruel not to believe in Hell. For isn't it cruel to tell skaters on thin ice that there's no water under the ice and that they can't possibly drown?

Not believing in hell doesn't lower the temperature down there one degree.
