Hell: God’s Greatest Dilemma August 20, 2009

It must be so bloody annoying.

Universe created, evolution ticking along nicely, more or less the way it should — apart from these wretched humans who think they know better, building their stinking cities everywhere and going around slaughtering one another as if there’s no tomorrow.

I mean, what’s a God supposed to do? Wind ’em up and let ’em go, I guess: live now, pay later or something, just give ’em hell.

Neat. All the evil sods who thought they’d got things their own way and spent their lives ruining other people’s all lined up for a bonfire party that’s gonna make a star going nova look like a kid’s firecracker; and they’re gonna be in it, not toasting their bagels on it.

Then what happens?

Some bastard carpenter comes along and blows the door off. Bloody menace: now what are you gonna do with ’em?

Go figure.

(Thanks to my friend @bourach for inspiring me to write this. Bourach, sweetie, you’re not going to hell: the Bastard Carpenter wins over the Angry Deity every time.)

Brilliant post. And I agree with your assessment of @bourach also – love to you both.

This post assumes the Christian way of salvation.

(le-havdil) The same that is outlined in Tan’’kh about kipur – atonement – was taught by first century Ribi Yehoshua (the Messiah) from Nazareth. Ribi Yehoshua taught in accordance with the teachings in Torah about the only way to get atonement and therefore enable a connection with ha-Sheim. Read more here: http://www.netzarim.co.il

Looks way too complicated for me, Anders: I’ll stick with the bastard carpenter blowing the door off; but thanks for dropping by 🙂

Just say it, you know you want to...
