Good point.<quoted text>
I think his comments on hell, are just to highlight the absurdity and childishness of this silly belief. No sane rational person believes in hell.
At least in the old testament there is no afterlife. Yahweh may be a psychotic deliquent, but at least when you die you are off the hook.
But the "loving" Jesus wants to torture the majority of mankind for eternity. That absurd notion is not love in my book.
The OT god is a murdering maniac, rampaging through its pages killing as a first resort.
Come the NT, we have the same god but he only kills (as far as I'm aware) three people.
However, eternal torture of the vast majority of humanity is the act of a lunatic sadist.
