I wondered if there were believers who thought teaching their children about hell and damnation had benefits? I'm sure the obvious response will be, the benefit of knowing about it will prevent them from taking actions that will take them there, but as mentioned in NotPanicking's Hellthread, no one really knows what gets you there, who goes, if it exists and where it is.
Maybe the benefits of teaching hell and damnation is sort of like teaching your kid, you better be good, or Santa won't come, only a billion times worse.
Do you think there are parents that use the Hell card as a tool? Do you think there should be a law against it?
What are the benefits of this metaphorical place called Hell ?
