Is The Fear Of Hell What Keeps Xtians In Church ? by SIRcumalot: 11:20am On Dec 21, 2012
Cause I wonder what would happen if God suddenly remove eternal damnation from the equation would our churches still be full ? Would we still adhere to the ten commandement ?

Fear of hell, greed for immortality

The religious believe in hell, so they fear it and because they think it is only God who can save them from it, they worship him. It is a trade, they worship God, he gets them to his little paradise. Got it?

great comment so if I perform my christian duties just because I want to avoid hell I would still end up there for going to church for the wrong reason ? Does this seem fair?

SIR cum a lot:

MAJORITY of christians go to church because of the fear of hell, if hell was removed from the equation, christianity won't be a major religion today(no matter how beautiful heaven is). Infact, the fear of hell is the begining of wisdom for a christian...

Morover its the fear of hell that is preventing christians from thinking about simple logical questions that could expose a loophole in the creation story(e.g where did the nodites come from)

Simply put: removing the hell doctring would multiply the number of atheist/agnostics by a factor of 10-100

me no think people are in churches cause they are afraid of hell,most people go to church just to fulfil the obligation of a religious entity,still go back to our individual involvements,when i was younger,i love my church,love my bible,knows the bible,preach the bible and pick up chics from the church without even remembering the hell thing you know,go figure
