heaven hotter than hell

Postby thatkidakayoungguy » Fri May 19, 2017 7:22 am

So some people say that they did studies or something and found out heaven is hotter than hell, I think it is a half baked attempt to get out of wanting to get to heaven.

Why would someone not want to get to Heaven?

Heat rises, so it only makes sense that heaven is hotter. :lol:

Well, thinking back it might not be an attempt to get away from heaven as much as mocking the idea of a hot hell and blissful heaven.
I don't know why people would want to get out of heaven, some people say they want to go to hell or you'll see them in hell, thinking it is some awesome place. Reminds me of the phrase "better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven". Will they be wrong.

Because God is there. Do you think when people die, given an afterlife, their questionings and judgements about God will change simply because they see God exists?

I don't think it is the Theists who judge God harshly; I think it is the Atheist who do that. Someone who doesn't believe in God probably isn't going to believe in an actual Heaven and Hell either, thus he probably won't be making up excuses to get out of going to a place he is convinced doesn't exist

I think you're disagreeing, but I'm not sure what with. I'm not sure what you're trying to say. My response was quite straight up, there are people who just wouldn't want heaven because God is there.

The link I provided, shows just how many Atheists would judge God should they find themselves surprised with an afterlife. God, given God exists, isn't liked by a whole lot of people who identify as Atheists. They have zero trust in God's goodness, yet strangely a lot of trust in their own.

That's part of the rebellion in us started by Adam and Eve, imo. We tend to trust in ourselves. Another factor in why many atheists don't trust God is that they think he's evil. I mentioned this in another thread.

I was responding to a claim of what someone might do in order to get out of going to heaven. Now; since Atheists don’t believe in Heaven, we must be talking strictly about Theists right? But then, a link was provided about Atheists who would not want to go to Heaven if God and Heaven existed. But my point was; we’re not talking about Atheists, we’re talking about Theists because they are the ones who believe there is an actual Heaven. Now if there were a link of Theists who actually believe there IS a God residing in Heaven, who don't want to go because they are critical of God; it would all make more sense.

No, I think you've confused yourself Kenny, Atheists can still entertain hypothetical questions. Even those who claim not to believe in God have a conception of what God would be like if asked to assume God exists.

No confusion; initially I was making a point under the assumption that the person making the claim actually believes what he is saying. But I can see your point of a person making such a claim hypothetically.
