If the Christian God really loves you as much as the Bible says he does, why does he hold Hell over your head to make sure that you do what he says? That isn’t love, friend, that is sadistic abuse. I know what you are going through: while your brain may be questioning the inconsistencies of the Christian belief system, a small voice in your psyche repeatedly tells you to play it safe and obey the monster who calls himself your “loving Heavenly Father”.
He is not loving and he is not your father, friend! He isn’t even a “he”. It is an “it”…an evil, manipulative, imaginary, supernatural Boogeyman, a superstition, invented by ancient middle-eastern, scientifically illiterate goat-herders to make some sense of their chaotic world.
And Hell was invented by evil Christian Churchmen to control the ignorant masses of their day, using probably our greatest fear: being burned alive.
Teaching this horrific concept to little children is criminal! It is psychological child abuse. Tell a child that Daddy is going to burn him if he misbehaves, and then tell him that over and over and over, his entire childhood, that child will never fully recover from that psychological damage. That is what ex-fundamentalist Christians, ex-conservative Christians, ex-evangelical Christians, and ex-orthodox Christians who have grown up in this abusive system must deal with for the rest of our lives: freeing themselves from the fear of our father burning us for not doing what he says. What a sick belief system! Let’s expose this superstition-based psychological abuse and prevent children in the future from ever having to fear being burned by an imaginary god!
The conservative Christian belief system is a baseless superstition that belongs in the Superstition Grave Yard along with Zeus and Jupiter.
