  • Well, the thing is...most people that believe in hell DO change or are in the process of changing. People who don't believe in hell will continue to live in their sin-filled lives (we ALL sin, not passing judgements).

    I have already changed my ways in the past 2 years for the better because the reality of hell was brought to my attention and I wanted NO PART of it.

  • No because there is no such thing as hell or sin. I believe in God, I am a law abiding citizen, I volunteer when I can,ect. God doesnt judge our lives. PEOPLE do. I also believe that this "hell" people speak of is actually what we are living in now. When we die, we ALL go to the other side. Differant religions have differant names for it, but it is the same place everybody's soul goes to. These beliefs that I have just make sense to me. Believe whatever makes sense to you just be respectful of other people's beliefs. If you are going to shove your beliefs down a person's throat, you better be able to take what you are dishing out.

  • Everyone sins everyday. We are human. If I knew exactly what God did not like that I was doing I would definitely change it. Everything that God has laid out for us is from him and we need to be responsible in how we deal with the things that happen to us. Hopefully it is to his liking...because I feel that religions thru the years have been changed that we don't even really know what God wants from us anymore. I can see the obvious things but some of the more complex things who knows... But to answer tbe question I would change.

  • The bible doesn't teach that hell is anything other than the common grave... so why would I be scared of dying?

  • How can you say you believe in God and then say there is no such thing as Hell or sin????? A lot of murderers will be happy to hear your point of view- it really lets them off the hook.

  • The wages sin pays is DEATH. Not Hell. We all die. Ecclesiastes also says the dead are conscious of nothing at all.

  • When I was out in the world, the thought of hellfire did nothing to turn me away from my sins. The love shown by God through the cross of Jesus saved me. I serve God out of love.
    The wages of sin IS death(Romans 6:23), that's why this earth, all sin, and sinners are going to be burned up.( Rev. 20:9) Hellfire won't burn forever but the results will be everlasting. If the fires burned forever God would fail at His purpose to rid the world of sin(Revelation:21:4,Isaiah 65:17) instead it would be perpetuated.

  • I don't believe in hell either, other than the one we are currently living in. So considering that I KNOW God loves me unconditionally and there is nothing I can do to make Him love me less, I have to say no. I will always be me, exactly as God made me.

    God bless!!

  • Too many people think they're going to heaven but their actions would suggest otherwise and they have no desire to change. They should be more worried about hell.
