Time is like the ancient Ouroboros. Time is fleeting moments, grains of sand passing through an hourglass. Time is the moments and events we so readily try to measure. But the ancient Ouroboros reminds us that in every moment, in every instant, in every event, is hidden the past, the present, and the future. Eternity is hidden in every moment. Every departure is at once a return, every farewell is a greeting, every return is a parting. Everything is simultaneously a beginning and an end.
Judaism: “So, the Messiah is gonna come and it’s gonna be fab! World peace, no hatred, full understanding of divinity. Heck, G-d is gonna even make pork kosher so we can celebrate Messiah time with bacon! And EVERYONE is invited!!! EVERYONE. Jews, non-Jews! IT’S GONNA BE SO GREAT!!! Even bad people are gonna just spend like a 1 year cooling off period in hell and then they can TOTALLY JOIN THE PARTY!!! EVERYONE IS INVITED!!!!“
Christianity: "THERE SHALL BE THE TRIBULATION AND ALL THE NON BELIEVERS SHALL ENDURE YEARS OF TORTURE! Those who have not accepted Jesus shall spend their eternity burning in the lake of fire! He is the ONLY WAY! There shall be NO FORGIVENESS for those who have rejected our lord!”
Christians to Jews: “OMG, Jews, why don’t you accept Christianity?? It’s full of love and forgiveness. Your old testament god is so cruel and barbaric!”
you’re 16 and you’re just chillin in high school doing your thing, playing video games w/ the bros, practicing your guitar, doin your homework n going to concerts here and there and using your mom’s credit card to buy songs on iTunes. There’s a 10/10 girl w/ the FINEST cake you ever seen and she’s been texting you, showing u some mad interest and she EVEN sends you snaps almost every day. But two days before you ask that girl to the dance, she shows up to school with your best friend, n she’s making out with him every time the teacher turns around in precalc. Heartbroken and shattered, you ask yourself, “what happened?”
What happened is you dodged a 10mm bullet headed straight for your upper spine. You dodged 3 years of emotional abuse and 18 years of child support. You dodged death itself and eternity in the lake of fire baby, no more no less
She shifted and gently freed her arm from under his head, and lay beside him on the grass so that she could look into his eyes. She looked eagerly, as if she would memorise his image, as if to save it for the future, for all eternity…
The concept of Hell is one of the most disturbing ideas in the Bible. The threat of everlasting fire has been used to frighten religious adherents into belief and obedience for centuries. In an attempt to make their faith more appealing, Christians have created an array of defenses for this appalling doctrine. Not only are these defenses logically flawed, they contradict the Bible itself. Here are seven of the most common excuses and why they cannot justify the notion of Hell.
