"and then the preachers would go on about how those who didn't believe in Jesus would burn in Hell"<quoted text>
I remember the old hymn that was popular in my childhood
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
Blah, blah, blah.......
And then the preachers would go on about how those who didn't believe in Jesus would burn in hell.
Silly people and their silly dogmas ... always take the best for their selves and toss the worst stuff over the fence at the "evil" neighbors.
Its too bad they said that to you. They were not an authority and shouldn't have interpreted sacred scriptures like that. You got the wrong Gospel and those self proclaimed ministers will be held accountable for doing that.
(No I am not saying they will burn in Hell)
