John Paul said the same thing!!!!!! And this is from a Catholic web site!!!!!
Heaven, Hell and Purgatory by Pope John Paul II
Hell is the State of Those who Reject God
At the General Audience of Wednesday, 28 July 1999, the Holy Father reflected on hell as the definitive rejection of God. In his catechesis, the Pope said that care should be taken to interpret correctly the images of hell in Sacred Scripture, and explained that "hell is the ultimate consequence of sin itself... Rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy".
----------
And he said:(from a Catholic web site....)
Heaven is the transcendent dwelling-place of the living God
Metaphorically speaking, heaven is understood as the dwelling-place of God, who is thus distinguished from human beings (cf. Ps 104:2f.; 115:16; Is 66:1). He sees and judges from the heights of heaven (cf. Ps 113:4-9) and comes down when he is called upon (cf. Ps 18:9, 10; 144:5). However the biblical metaphor makes it clear that God does not identify himself with heaven, nor can he be contained in it (cf. 1 Kgs 8:27); and this is true, even though in some passages of the First Book of the Maccabees "Heaven" is simply one of God's names (1 Mc 3:18, 19, 50, 60; 4:24, 55).
See: Metaphorically speaking......
WOW!!!

He kinda got it right, how amazing!!!

True, Hell is NOT a place, but a CONCEPT/CONDITION.

There are two basic ways you could say one creates a "living hell" for themselves. The most common being shutting themselves off from God, by allowing themselves to be brainwashed by religious lies, that are so far removed from God, and destroys their minds, that they could never understand God, nor spiritually evolve enough to pass their judgment and enter Heaven. All because the man made religious lies rarely have anything to do with God or real spiritual matters. Your Christianity is one of the most spiritually void religions that creates living Hells for many of it's followers.

The second way one creates a "living Hell" for themselves, is by WANTING to go against God, or at least shutting out God's guidance, and do evil things.

As to Heaven, it is NOT the "dwelling place" of God, it IS God.

God is the vast and all powerful soul who creates, maintains, and controls the universe. God's soul has existed through out all eternity. But God created the physical world/universe/realm within himself, God/Heaven/The Spiritual Universe/Realm. Both are separate, side by side, yet both are of God, they ARE God. For God IS the living universe, and the universe IS the living God.

If you want to know the truth....answer my question "Do you have any idea what the definition of "church" is in Mt 16:18 in the NT????"
If you are happy with false teachings....don't move...stay with your head in the sand....
You should be more concerned with what your book of mythology defines a soul as. I mean, with all this running around, yelling and screaming, trying to force everyone to accept Christianity to "save" their souls, I would think that would be on top of the list to find answers on. If it's so all fired important, you should be searching your book of mythology that claims to have ALL the spiritual answers for what they define a soul to be. There should be tons of info on it, if your book really has ALL the spiritual answers as claimed. So tell me what you find.

<quoted text> The church is the body of believers who are in the Church of Christ. If you are not in the right church that worships according to the bible and worships in spirit and in truth then you're not in the body of Christ. If you belong to a church that doesn't worship as the bible says to worship then you're not in the right church and then that also means that you're not in the body of Christ, meaning once again, you're not in the right church. The Baptist church isn't the church of the bible because they do not worship according to the bible and so on with every other church there is, except for the Church of Christ
You only say that because you were brainwashed to say that.

Oh sure, the preacher SAYS that, and uses all kinds of clever lies and mis-interpretations, but he's just brainwashing people to believe his self serving lies. That's what ALL Christian churches do. That's why there are over 30,000 Christian denominations that all claim THEY and ONLY THEY are "true" Christians. But NONE of you are. If you were, you would be doing ALL the crazy and evil things your "god" tells you to do. Like stoning your disobedient children, making a raped women marry her rapist, hating your entire family, giving up all your possessions, etc. Which none of you would do. So you are ALL fakes.

I also have to say
I never learned ANTI CATHOLICISM in the Baptist Church ..or from.any sermon I've heard since coming reborn.
I've heard..read it here ...also anti evangelicalism
I've been accused of being ANTI Catholic ..I'm.not ..I believe there is,much good in your Church.
I don't believe evolution or NEW,ISRAEL ..That I've read,here ...But those are just things you folks,say are theories,.
I DO understand the Reformation ...what they wanted to change that was being done or had been by less than godly HUMANS ..
BUT I niece God can lead us,to salvation WHERE EVER HE CHOOSES..in any CHURCH ..yours,..mine ..NO CHURCH .....HE CREATED the universe and is,NOT LIMITED BY MANS,
denominations ...
Make of that what you will ..
As you can see if you read my last few posts,..I do not subscribe to nonsense quoted on some stupid website ..And,will say so..
.
Peace
One must be FOR GOD ..not AGAINST those He has,called ...IMO.
Disagreement is,not ANTI ..big difference
You said: "I do understand the reformation.. What they wanted to change what was being done, or had been done by less than godly humans"

I don't think you understand the Protestant reformation. This wasn't a good reformation led by Luther. It derailed immediately. It undid the word of God. Yes the Catholic Church needed to be reformed in the 16th century, but not like that. Pope Francis is reforming the Church right now without starting a different one. In the case of your protestant forefathers, they introduced doctrines that were completely against what Jesus taught. By now, you should realize that. The modern born again evangelical movement looks nothing like the first Protestants nor any protestant sect in the following decades since Luther started it all. ungodly leaders is no reason to unravel the word of God.

"I will start out by saying that, though I was once one of you-and I will get to that a little
later-I am now a Catholic. I do not condemn you nor doubt your salvation. You believe in
the Lord Jesus, have presumably been baptized in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy
Spirit and seek to serve the Lord and obey His will. We will most assuredly spend
eternity together in heaven. You may say,“No way Steve, you are not saved the “Bible
way” and never have been, and you will spend eternity in hell.” However, even by your
soteriology I will go to heaven, since one who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior
“your way” has eternal security. I have done so. I used to be an anti-Catholic and spent a
good bit of time writing tracts, witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, unsaved
pagans and the “salvation-by-works-Catholics. ” We went door to door and hit every
home within a ten-mile radius of our church over a period of six years. We brought
people in for Gospel Meetings, even taking the meetings to halls we rented in all the
nearby towns and cities. We converted many Catholics to the fundamentalist gospel."
