Well, here is your hodge-podge collection of stolen and rewritten desert folk tales you mentioned below... Hope it works out for ya!
Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth”
Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched”
Revelation 14:10 “he will be tormented with fire and brimstone”
Revelation 14:11 “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night”
Revelation 20:14 “This is the second death, the lake of fire”
Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”:)
It's just scare tactics to keep you forking over that 10% cut out of your income to the spell casters, and if that don't work your god will make you cook and eat your children.

All their power comes from you.

Aaaah.... I get it now. You cannot convince with reason, so you resort to extortion (threats) instead?

Hint: telling an atheist he is going to hell?

Is >>> exactly <<< like someone telling YOU that Santa won't bring you presents this Christmas...

.... >> exactly << the same thing.

LMAO!

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

I'll be sure to look for you when you get to Hell, Doc.

Yes, yes they are desperate. It's kinda sad to watch, too.

They represent such a senselss and bitter waste of human life.

I've not seen even ONE godbot who seemed cheerful or happy. Not even cracking a joke here or there-- it's pitiful.

Like 'burnt, dead puppies' pitiful.

Indeed-- among the "sinners" are all the people with real educations, and the smarter side of the bell curve.

Thankfully, all the gullible and stupid people will be in ... "heaven"...

.... I kinda pity them, I really do-- no drinking, no eating, no f*88king--- none of that.

And no TV, either-- I have it on excellent authority, that TV is "the devil's box", as told by any number of Genuine Christian Preachers™ over the years.

So no entertainment in "heaven"...

... will be a dreary place.

*I would not threaten you, I quoted God's word...

I was never raised to believe in Santa Clause, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy, or Leprechauns...

I was only taught about the 'Lord Jesus Christ.' Maybe that's why my faith is 'soooo' strong. Just a thought.:)

Here's one for you! By following Christianity nobody goes to heaven.
Why?
Because when you go to heaven you are completely changed to fit in with all the other drones who sing praises to god all day. Anything that was you is now gone. Hence nobody goes to heaven even if it exists.
