Heaven and Hell Concept: Where Did It Originate? The Facts May Surprise You!

Janet Vargas Owner Of This Website

EVEN CHRISTIANITY IS IGNORANT ABOUT THIS, SO SOME CHRISTIAN SECTS PREACH A "HEAVEN and HELL" GOSPEL. I SAY THIS TO SOME CHRISTIANS "DID YOU KNOW THAT THE WORD 'GOSPEL' ACTUALLY MEANS 'GOOD NEWS' NOT 'SCARY NEWS? PEOPLE HAVE ENOUGH OF THAT OVER THE NEWS MEDIA." PLUS, I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF SCARING PEOPLE INTO ETERNITY: I THINK THE EMPHASIS IS WRONG - FINDING JESUS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A 'FIRE ESCAPE' IT'S THE BEST RELATIONSHIP WE WILL EVER EXPERIENCE IF WE CARE TO BE CLOSE TO HIM.

It is my personal belief, based on what I now know to be true, the only Hell that exists is the one (figuratively speaking) on this Earth with the Evils there are in this World and the awful things people experience.

SO FACTS ARE:
There is a Second Death Jesus referred to, that is a Spiritual Death, but not a Tormenting Place, created by a Sinister Vengeful God that Religions make Him out to be (if they think about it.)

That's an Awful Misinterpretation of a Holy God and a Loving Creator!!!

There's a Bible Research Website I found a few years ago that is run by two very interesting and thorough Bible Researchers who cover different Topics on disturbing things which cause Confusion due to Some Errors in Interpretation by the Catholic and King James Translators.

The Same Error found it's way into Other Bible Translations after that.

Rick and Jonathan discuss Topics in intricate detail to Clarify things when it comes to various Concerns some Christians have, and people have heard some Preachers say on some occasions.

Because the existence of a 'Hell' has caused such great Fear and Trauma to many people, and because the words Hell and Torment are actually totally absent in the Original Greek and Hebrew Bible Manuscripts, Rick and Jonathan discovered........they researched this phenomena in Church History, and Various Sources of Ancient History across the World and found out something that will bring great relief
to many.

THEY TRACED IT BACK TO AN ANCIENT EGYPTIAN PAGAN FANTASY WHICH OVER TIME GOT PROPAGATED IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AND CULTURES ACCROSS THE WORLD - HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BIBLE, BIBLE DAYS (THE JEWS OR ISRAELITES) AND WE FIND THOSE 2 WORDS HELL and TORMENT WERE ADDED IN THE KJB KINGS JAMES BIBLE and OTHER TRANSLATIONS IN IGNORANCE EVER SINCE.

I found out something interesting as well. One of their discoveries about the "Hell and Torment" Egyptian Fantasy was that Egypt decided to use it to Control the People, so they didn't commit Violence and other things. Countries that far back in time did not have a "Law and Judicial System" in those days, so other Countries around Egypt decided it would be an effective Scare Tactic to control their People too, so they would behave better. This spread to other Countries Worldwide and eventually, it made it's way into the Religious Systems including the Church of Rome and King James in England, who was interested to have a Bible Translation for the People of England. Once those Two Words were added by Bible Translators in Rome and England, it became Common Practice for other Translators to keep them there (pretty much on a permanent basis since then.)

On one of their Webpages about the Topic of Hell called "What is the History of Hellfire?" you find these Words written there:

In ancient Babylonian and Assyrian beliefs the “Nether World….is pictured as a place Full of Horrors, and is presided over by Gods and Demons and of great strength and fierceness.” (The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria, Boston, 1898, Morris Jastrow, Jr., pg. 581) Early evidence of the fiery aspect of Christendom’s hell is found in the religion of Ancient Egypt. (The Book of The Dead, New Hyde Park, N.Y., Buddhism, which dates back to the 6th century B.C. in time came to feature both hot and cold Hells. Depictions of Hell portrayed in Catholic Churches in Italy have been traced back to Ethruscan Roots.

But the real roots of this God-Dishonoring Doctrine go much deeper. The fiendish concepts associated with a Hell of Torment SLANDER GOD and originate with the Chief Slanderer of God (the Devil, whose name means “Slanderer”), the one whom Jesus Christ called “The Father of the Lie” (John 8:44Open in Logos Bible Software)

So as you can see ......Hell and Torment is actually a Pagan Babylonian Belief that should not be taught or endorsed by Christians or ANY Religion on this Earth. It is Very Damaging spiritually, mentally and emotionally. And is a Misrepresentation
of what God's Nature is all about.

Etruscan Religion: Having to do with Gods & Goddesses. It's also comprised of The essential belief that Human Life was but One Small Meaningful Element in a Universe Controlled by Gods.

Etruscan religion comprises a set of stories, beliefs, and religious practices of the Etruscan Civilization, heavily influenced by the Mythology of Ancient Greece, and sharing similarities with concurrent Roman Mythology and Religion.

If HELL is an Ancient Egyptian Fantasy and Babylonian Belief......
HOW did it get into Christianity?

Good Question! Like I said, Egypt actually used HELL as a Scare Tactic NOT to Commit Violence Etc They basically Controlled the People that way, so they would not do the Wrong Thing. Other Countries did the same (it spread Worldwide)

Countries in the World did not have a LAW SYSTEM like we have Today to Restrain People from doing Wrong to their Fellowmen, and the Hell Phenomena seemed a "Good Idea" to them. So that's what they did (they adopted it)

But HOW did this "HELL and TORMENT" get into the CHRISTIAN BIBLE?

One definite Answer to that Friends......PAPAL ROME took over CHRISTIANITY for a Time, after the Roman Emperor Constantine considered it as a Threat to His Empire. He made it a State Institution so he could gain Control over it (in 330AD) and Christians of that time were made to Meet in Buildings instead of the Lovely Fellowship they had in their Houses........

And the Roman Catholic Empire Came In (developed with Buildings and Hierarchy, the Vatican with Popes, through the years, was established.) The BIBLE was Kept out of the Hands of Christians and ERROR Crept In (things the Bible Never said, like Worshipping Mary; Praying to Saints; Religious Practices that Stifled the Presence of God etc the Teaching of Hell and Damnation came in) it was pretty oppressive really.

Something more has come to light after writing this article.

In 200-220AD Tertullian of Carthage, considered to be the Master of Torment, strongly influenced Christians - two Centuries later. He’s the guy who first made the theory that the souls of those who are Unsaved are going to burn in hellfire for ever and ever and ever, never burning up, and he specified how this process works. He wrote it right down in detail. He came from a Pagan background.

I've known for many years that name the Devil also means Deceiver!

We have just read a brief account of how that Deceiver MESSED with Christianity through Tertullian and Constantine and what followed, so TRUE Christianity would be Kept from People - Rendered Powerless basically.

Papal Rome used to actually threaten Christians that they would be damned for Eternity if they did not pay 10% of their Income to them - to keep their buildings and the hierarchy going. Without a doubt, that is how it got in there because the Original Manuscripts did not say that.

If you read my Article An Explanation Of The Good and Evil That Fills This Earth – No Agendas! HERE it will give you some Insights, pretty Necessary in this World we are living in Today! That's up to you if you wish to do so, I don't Impose anything on anyone.

TRUE Christianity (not the Churchianity we see in Buildings Today) was Growing Rapidly due to Changed Hearts and Lives (when Jesus comes into one's spirit and resides there) and the many Healings and Miracles that accompanied that. Christians were a Friendly Bunch of People who Gathered in Each-Other's Houses and People Nearby kept asking to Join Them aka "If this is what your Jesus is like,
we want to Know This Jesus!"

You can rest Assured, there most definitely is a HEAVEN Jesus referred to as Paradise in the Gospel in the Bible.
GOSPEL means GOOD NEWS remember? NOT Scary News!

I will cover the topic of Heaven later. It is now evening and I've been busy working away at this Article and another one for several hours.

I wish you all well.
