A fascinating little article:
It talks about estimates by the Southern Baptist Church of Alabama that calculate the number of people in the state that will go to hell. Southern Baptists, of course, are on the highway to heaven. But what about everyone else? Who has God damned to eternal torture in the unquenchable lake of fire? According to the article:
- Many of the people in other Baptist and evangelical denominations
- All who refuse to accept Jesus
Billions of people, in other words.
Hell is, of course, a completely imaginary place. But for members of the Southern Baptist religion, it is real. So it makes you wonder… how can these members stand to be around all of us who will be tortured for eternity?
More importantly, why would they worship anyone whose top item on the resume is “mass torturer”?
