Do you ever wonder that hell is this place? Earth? People talk about this place is evil and you rot in hell if you've done wrong. But I sometimes wonder if this world is hell, look at the atrocities, the famine, the wars, the death, the disease, the evil is here on earth, we are literally living in 'hell' Does it depend on your religion or are you sceptical there really is a hell and do you wonder if like me that we are actually in hell?

Hell is everywhere here on earth. Maybe this is hell already because there are lots of devils everywhere. Devils that are disguising humans are all over the world. You can see them in our respective government they are politicians, military and etc... So, Earth is Hell!

Well, I think we should bring out our saintly qualities so earth won't be hell even if it seems like it at the moment don't we? =) Cheers

No worries wolfie, Hell is just the stick the religious zealots want to beat you with if you don't go for the carrot of salvation. There are far too many heavenly qualities here on Earth for you seriously to get away with sugesting that this is in fact hell. Just take another, more optomistic look around you :) I kind of think it's really conceited to believe that all the cosmos, and all the galaxies and all the planets and all this Earth and all upon it were put here by one entity who has only the interests of "The believers" or "The chosen ones" at heart. What (war causing) utter poppycock!!! lol

i've got good neews for you,that hell that religion have use for many years to scare people so they can worship God,something that is not in the mind of God (he wants us to worship him becouse we love him,not becaouse we don't want to end up in a place called hell)where you will be tortured for eternety for the things you did in40,50 or60years of your life,does it make sence?this coming from a God of love?would you torture your kids for fomething bad that they did?even us human have that loving sence,the word hell is not even in the scriptures,well that knda hell does not exist,this things that are happening around us that makes us feel like we are in hell are predicted in the book,that this things were going to happen in the end times,this times we are living in now,many more are to come,is going to get worst before it gets better....

I was raised to believe in Heaven and Hell. But, I must say, that I no longer believe in them. But I do believe that if one were to apply the term Hell to a place, I have often said that we live in Hell!!! So, I am glad that I am not the only one that thinks this! I have thought many of times that if there were such place called Hell, our everyday world is Hell. Our world is filled with hatred, murder, war, famine, abuse, crimes, and so much more that is dark and horrible. With so much negativity, one would be left thinking that this is Hell. But to stay positive. I remind myself that there is also a lot of good in this world also. Sure, some people only donate money for a tax break. But there are many more people out there that do things to help others too. Sadly, I can not say if there is a balance of good and bad. It sometimes seems as if there is more bad. But I think that is because the media focuses on that bad. Shock and awe and they get the ratings! Sure they report on the happy things sometimes too. But not as often. Or is it not as often because there is not a balance? LOL

Life is always stressfull and often very difficult.. the more honest you are the more you get into trouble and, you feel you are in hell. But come what may, I believe truth triumphs alone and heaven should be nearby soon.

Yep I totally agree with you mate I have been saying that for Years that hell is the life we live when something goes right expect a major drama or such... My belief is that hell is this earth and the steps we take each day the trails and tests Heaven comes when our time passes and die then there are no more worries peace no debt no more where will I find the money and no more pain to feel just pure BLISS....

I wish I were able to believe that Hell isn't a much worse place than Earth. I'm sure you've heard the expression "hell on earth" and I'm here to tell you that I have this sick feeling that we haven't seen the half of that. You're right tho, evil is attempting to reign right now and it is getting ugly all over the world. Every nation has problems and countries are threatening war to each other all over the world. I sure hope you're right and I'm wrong. If we are currently in Hell, it's mild compared to what I always envisioned Hell to be like.

Yep, things can only get worst. When I was younger I used to think hell was lovely and warm and exciting to be and heaven was just this dull old cold place full of clouds and harps and totally and utterly boring. One mans heaven is one mans hell and all that!

maybe.. because i believe "hell" is a state of far from God. a state with low consciousness.. if i look around.. seems to be this world as well.

A pit full of fire! And what shall I do so that I do not end up there? I must keep in good health and not die.

Nope this isn't Hell. This life is just a test with trials and tribulations for those who truly believe in God and worship him alone. Sometimes were happy,sad,scared,joyful whatever in this life but hell there is no happiness.

hi friend, i dont think that everything on the earth could make the earth a hell or heaven bcoz things doesnot say any of the things what makes us to think of heaven or hell or good or bad is the bloody people behind thoughts explaining the things.

When I was a kid I use to think that hell was under the ground where you would go if you were bad. The devil lived down there, and there was fire all around you. strange? Yes today I sometimes think we are already in hell.

I believe that both Heaven and hell are present in this world itself. People have to pay for their deeds in this world only...one way or the other. If you do good God also sees that..and you get praise from god. We just have to unnderstand the ways in which God punishes us or gives his blessings. The blessings or punishment may get late sometimes but you get it definitely..one day.

The Gate to Hell - Dante's drawing
If there is a hell then it is of our own making and when you look at the things that you have described then Yes it is here on earth. It certainly can't be worse than in Dante's Hell.

Oh I can assure you wolfie 34, this is by no means hell. Just as there is a heaven reserved for GODs own. There is a hell reserved originally for the devil and his angels. But is also for those who refuse to accept JESUS as their LORD and SAVIOUR.

Maybe earth is not hell but alot of bad spirit is here on earth thats why they are still trying to get alot of people to be their armor. Whispering bad and evil things to people. For God hates it to see alot of people will endup loosing their soul for abiding what evil wants. Thats why evil is doing their best to make alot of evil people thats why theres alot of war, disease, and crimes. I also believe that disease is a bad spirit.
