If God is all forgiving then why is there a hell?

  • I don't think God is all forgiving. We are meant to honestly repent for our sins and ask forgiveness, and be sincerely remorseful of our sins in order for God to forgive us. If we commit sins and are not asking forgiveness, or don't really feel it is a sin, then I don't believe God forgives that. That is my opinion :)

  • So you believe in a more vengeful God instead of an all loving one?

  • I wouldn't call a God that expects you to recognize and learn from your mistakes a "vengeful God". I love my DF and my parents, but when they do something wrong I expect them to know it, recognize it, do their best to rectify it and then not do it again. Does that make me a vengeful person? Just because i have expectations of people?

    If God was an all loving one as you seem to be defining then that would mean that Hitler and Stalin are sitting pretty in heaven right now. That's something I cannot accept the possibility of.

  • The one unforgivable sin is denying Christ, if you deny Christ then you go to hell. He is forgiving of all others as long as we ask for that forgiveness and repent of our sins.

  • I don't believe in heaven nor hell. But it's always been a question i've asked & got yelled at for asking, lol. Ahh oh well. I think if you commit any type of sin & automatically gotta ask for forgiveness then you wouldn't really be that good of a christian anyways. KWIM?
