    Okay it's an office, Ms. High-Falootin'. If you have a door you can shut, then it's one of the better neighborhoods in Hell.

    I don't think there's a particularly sound scriptural basis for the notion of "hell" as it has evolved through the life of the church.

    This is true: theologically, Christian hell is all over the board. There are some more or less consistent ideas with certain medieval theologians, but they don't rhyme very well with the standard modern decor, which is mostly misappropriated Book of Revelation imagery filtered through 19th-century enthusiastic American Christian groups.

    I like the LDS hell the best: there's hardly anybody there! Even non-Mormons can avoid it through proxy post-mortem baptism.

    The traditional Chinese model is the opposite, and almost as comforting: almost everybody has to go through some sort of hell after dying, which sort banalizes the whole thing.

    Hell means bright/light/clear in German.


    In fact, I'm drinking one right now. Hell tastes pretty good.

    Yes it does. It's the first part of my last name. And yes, we had a brewery in pre-prohibition Baltimore. Although I will admit that I don't like light beer. Luckily (ok, doesn't matter), my family made real beer, not light beer.

    I think I now know what hell (or at least my version of hell) looks like.

    Take into account that we are in February. This is the ski area where I teach.

    Why does that photo look totally different than it did last night?? It was clear and sharp, but now it looks like modern art.

    Did Satan do it??

    Prost!

    however, I prefer to raise Ale; not that there is anything wrong with raising Hell

    Hell does exist. There is no picture that can adequately describe it.

    The bible does give a glimpse of it, but it does not go into detail. A lot of what people think hell is like can be attributed to Dante's Inferno.

    Revelation likens it to a lake that burns with fire. Jesus describes it as an outer darkness where those who ar there are in severe pain. He tells a paraple in Luke Chapter 16 of a beggar named Lazarus (not the same guy that Jesus brought back from the dead) and a rich man. They both die and Lazarus is carried by angels into heaven. The rich man goes into hell. He is tormented and requests Abraham to send Lazarus down to just give him a drop of water. Abraham explains that he can't, because there is a great chasm that they cannot cross.

    People don't go to hell for sin. I know this may be a new thing to you. They go to hell, because God made a way for them through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus and they chose not to accept God's grace.

    BTW - the word sin comes from an old archery term. It means to miss the mark. The mark we have set before us is to live in such a way that we glorify God. To sin, is to miss that mark. God has forgiveness for all who call upon Him. That is why Jesus said that He was the Way, the Truth and the Life and that no one came come to the Father except through Him.

    Now, we move.

    The archery story is apocryphal. The word is most likely (but not certainly, there are other real possibilites) from the Latin sons, which means something like "guilty" and was later ascribed its Christian theological significance.

    From the OED:

    There is a belief that sin comes from some archery term meaning to miss the target. This tale stems from confusion and misunderstanding of preachers giving Sunday sermons. The English word sin has no such etymology. The Greek hamartia, however, can literally mean to fall short or miss, especially in the archery context. Since hamartia is often the word being translated, preachers sometimes use this Greek etymology as a sermon illustration and people confuse it with the etymology of the English word. The sermon illustration, however, is somewhat flawed. By the time of Christ the archery sense of hamartia was obsolete, so the sermon illustration is anachronistic. To Christ and his contemporaries hamartia would simply mean a violation of God’s law and would not have conveyed a metaphorical sense of falling short, as an arrow falls short of its target.

    Anyhoo, the Christian theological connection between sin and hell is complicated and means very different things to different flavors of Christians.
