I just don't see how you can have absolute justice and forgiveness at the same time.
Jesus died for ALL sin.

It is an absolute. ALL sin is fatal, so ALL sin must be forgiven.

In respect to God, ALL sin makes a person imperfect, so ALL sin is equal. Also, it was a pretty dam powerful sacrifice he made on the cross :P

At least our buddha has the avatar fixed for the forum :x


And I wonder how accurate Divine Comedy would be considering religion. After all its a mans work depicting his ideas. As great as Dante might've been, its still colored by his imagination...

If the guy who told white lies died without asking for forgiveness - he has a first-class ticket on the HellBound Express (keep in mind, there are NO SECOND CHANCES).

So not only are you threatened with the idea of an eternity in hell, but overall the punishment doesn't suit the crime. So you'll have people rubbing rosaries and recanting "Hail Marys" on the off chance that they may be going to hell for something that they may have said rather than what they have done. You pretty much then have a system where people live life in fear of what's to come, rather than living the lives they could/should be living.
The main thing to understand is that people get sent to hell not for actions, but first and foremost for their relationship status with their creator: in a relationship or not.

All sinful actions are just the symptoms of the main disease - a rebellion against God. Some are more severe than others, but all, whether small or great highlight that someone is not in a right relationship with God.

About fear: There should be no fear, no uncertainty. You described a works based salvation, where someone has to do things in order to have their sins forgiven. Yes, there's fear there, because you never know if you've done the right thing or whether God has forgiven you. But in the Bible, salvation is not works based - it's grace based.

But I'm not catholic, so I won't go further on this point.

Quote:
It's ridiculous but that's about it really. Not to mention the fact that there is not true historical record of the man Jesus during the time period in which he supposedly lived in.
If you're suggesting that he may have not existed, you're in the stark minority.

Quote:
The miracles that are ascribed to him are also considered a part of mythology adapted from various other "messiahs" (i.e. Horus; an Egyptian god and many others) all of whom were reported to have healed the sick, cured the blind, died in public, and rose from the dead (zombies?)
We've been through this already in this thread in the earlier pages.
see: http://www.tektonics.org/copycathub.html

To sum it up, people on the interwebs have (either purposely or unknowingly) puffed up these similarities to levels that they aren't actually at. And any similarities that are legit are stupid ones like "he healed people! He raised the dead!". That's so vague that it could be ascribed to anyone...

erm - it's spelled Buddah (with the "h" and "a" switched) because the name was already taken on my server - not a typo; it was done on purpose. So i figured same name in Server would be used in Forums - so how's that for eating your words? kthnxbye

And to BuddhaIncarnate - No I am not a fan of yours - In fact i was equally surprised when I saw that you had the same profile pic (albeit w/ gray instead of white background) - And Idk about you but as you can see - I've had that char name for 5 years now- just made this new account for forums recently, however.

And as an added bonus - I'd just like to further state that I'm not here to argue about who's the "real" Buddha or what not; just here to talk about the touchy subject of religion (as well as promote my own post - In sig)

---EDIT--- Changed profile Pic so that "Mr. Real" doesn't get the wrong impression o.o


TL;DR: Don't get your panties in a bunch.

It's a great that you mentioned this. The actual portrayal of hell was never fully described in the Bible. Rather, in order to impress upon the masses at the time (during the middle ages ~ 1000AD) that they should follow Christianity, the Church at the time began preaching more about the damnation parts, and less about the actual saving grace factor that Jesus offered.

Dante pretty much took those ideas of a gruesome hell with demons and all forms of punishment and combined them with elements from the works of the The Odyssey and the Aeneid (Hence why it makes sense to read them in this order: Odyssey - Aeneid - Divine Comedy)

You're right to say that it's a man's interpretation of how hell should look, however, most of the depictions that we have of hell stemmed from his description. So if you're looking for a good summer reading selection, i'd recommend those works and of course some books in the Bible for comparison (on the description of hell -guess which one is more tame).
