If Christianity died as a religion and no one knew of Jesus anymore would the entire human species from that point onward be damned to hell?

I'm an athiest - for several different reasons, but I think that it's very narrow minded to think that there is no possibility that other religions are true. I accept that maybe I'm wrong, but you would be so surprised at the number of people who can admit that maybe their faith is wrong (not very many).

if i didn't believe in jesus why would i believe in hell? (i don't believe in either places) but if christianity was gone, then ppl wouldn't believe in heaven so then they wouldn't believe in hell. (i know more than just christianity has a heaven/hell like place)

Man there are a lot of responses to this question. First I want to say to omegavolt that which ever person you talked to that claimed to to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses that said that people would go to to hell as in a hell fire then they probably were an ex-witness who wanted to spread misinformation about us. The concept of a hell fire CANNOT be found anywhere in the bilbe. As some have said what kind of God would make people suffer in a fiery torment for just 80 years of sin. That is certainly unjust. Secondly I would like to pose a question to all of you. If you are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve then think about this. If Adam and Eve had never eaten from the tree that God told them not to eat from, where would they be today? God's original purpose for creating mankind was to live here on earth in paradise conditions just like Adam and Eve enjoyed. He told Adam and Eve to subdue the earth and fill it with offspring. Adam and Eve sinned so God's original purpose

was put on hold for a while. When Adam and Eve sinned a question was raised about God's right to rule mankind and also a question about mankinds right to rule and ability to rule himself. Well 6000 years of human history have proven that humans cannot rule themselves. I mean take a look at the mess the world is in. As for the idea of hell fire that is no where in the bible. Any time you see the word hell you need to look at the original words from the Hebrew and Greek languages. Those words are Sheol and Hades. Those two words that have been translated into most bibles as the word hell mean a pit or grave. That's right folks. That's all hell is, the common grave of mankind. Ecc. 9:5, says that the living are conscious that they will die but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all. If they feel nothing at all then they can feel no pain. Ez. 18:4 says "The soul that is sinning-it itself will die". While I'm at it the idea of an immortal soul is also no

not found anywhere in the bible. Look at the bible, look at an accurate translation and ask yourself what makes sense. Does the idea of a firey torment from a loving God make sense, no. Also a clarification, Ecc. 9:5 ends with the word all. I added the statement that starts with If they.. Now obviously some might disregard what I've said because of your opinions about Jehovah's Witnesses but look at any secular information and it will back up what I've said.

Any responses?

It could never happen because we have the Pope who will always remind people to go to Mass and pray the Rosary
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 9:44:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
wow. this is a very good question. i would have to say i agree with killraven
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 9:51:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.Going to heaven cannot possibly be based on believing in god.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 4:34:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Pope won't allow it and God won't allow it
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 4:37:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
"The Pope won't allow it and God won't allow it"

Now the pope clearly has an interest in people believing, but how would God benefit from people believing ? And why is it so important to him that he won't allow Christianity to die out ?

No, I don't think so, because the whole idea of a God of some kind could not just be wiped out. I don't know if anyone here has read the Narnia series, but I believe God and Jesus would be like Aslan. And Aslan says that he takes any true belief of anything, any following of any certain beast (or in our case, religion), to be a belief of himself. So no, human kind would not be doomed, because people must believe in something, and I think the Lord would accept that.

Sorry if I sounded preachy or anything back there, or if I didn't make sense, but I think you should get the idea. Hopefully.

No, because if Christianity died the Bible would be lying when it said it never would. So the rest of the Bible would no longer be valid.

Without Jesus, all our lives would be a lot worse off. None of us would be able to go to Heaven, and none of us would have a relationship with God. To me nothing sounds worse

Joelp17 says so...we would go to HELL!!
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 10/31/05 - 5:23:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. That wouldn't really be fair, would it? I mean, if those people haven't even been exposed to Christ, how can God expect them to believe in him? Give Him some more credit. He isn't that mean. I believe that about people today, as well. I'm sure there are people out there that can honestly say "Jesus who?" God wouldn't just condemn all of them, and say "Sorry. I guess you just were in the wrong place at the wrong time."

doesnt matter anyways whether christianity dies or not

coz the christians arent following their bible . they r not christians in the true sense

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 10/8/06 - 8:42:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
According to the Southern Baptists, yes.

it doesn't really have anything to do with the "religion" of Christianity, really... it's about a relationship with the Lord.
do i think that it will ever go away completely? no. i don't. not until the rapture. because even if all the Christians in the world were to die, God doesn't need US to spread His word... He's just asked us to do it. His Word would still remain and even if there were no people to talk about it, someone at sometime would find it and believe it. or someone out there would have heard about it before the Christians died and would want to know more and would find out more if they really wanted to.
