This is sort of related to my other post about near death experiences. There are many who claim to have had visions of hell and although i dont recall God ever saying that the people will be there forever, there are certainly accounts of people who call out to God but to no avail. I hear of people who see Bhuddists in hell
who lived a life of love but are still there anyway because they were unlucky enough never to have heard about Jesus. (Incidentally it is Satan who tells the visitor this) This has only ever bred fear in me and others-see the testimony below:
It still haunts me and I have “given my heart to Jesus” over and over again cause I don’t ever want to go to hell. But now I struggle with the “mechanics” of salvation and how can one ever be really sure that they will go to heaven cause so many folks teach and believe that it’s a real fragile thing and if you “backslide” and die before you get a chance to repent, then that’s it you are going to hell and nothing can change that. I hope that’s not true but after going through what I have already gone through I don’t want to “miss it” again.
This does not seem biblical as God does not give us a spirit of fear. We have no need to fear hell if we embrace God or, if we are ignorant of God, if we embrace love. the bible says that even those who dont know who God is will be justified if they did what they know is right.
My question then is: do you think that some of these visions of hell i.e. the ones where you end up being afraid of making a tiny mistake and think that you have to obey every single command or you will go to hell, do you think they are actually induced by religious spirits?
