I Am The Vine

Instead of just reading  Bible passages,  believing and accepting the handed down meanings for them, you can choose meanings that feel right for you at your present understanding.

Let it be YOUR understanding interpret the word meanings, and you will find that now, the passages do make sense.

So get a ‘dictionary, pen and paper’ and choose your own meanings for words.

So…this is my understanding of this passage.

Hell

 

 

Over 2 thousand years ago Jerusalem set up a hill. There was an area that was on the southern side of the city that was used  to dispose of the cities filth and garage. It was all thrown into this area.

This area was first a burial site from as early as the seventh until the fifth century BCE. It was also an area where children were sacrificed and bodies of executed criminals where dumped, and that is why a fire was kept constantly burning there.

It was a real place. It was in a valley called Hinnon. The Hebrew name Hinnom when translated in to Greek is gehenna, from which the word and concept of HELL originated.

Hinnon…HELL…the city dump eventually became known as a place where god sent sinners for everlasting punishment and as time went on HELL became known as the place for sinners.

Todays concept of ‘hell’ began as something man created and then over the centuries, ‘hell’ became associated with God. God really had nothing to do with any ‘hell’ place.  Did you know that?

Hell as it became known was known as a place “down there” where the wicked would eventually be cast into the flames for ever lasing punishment.

The threat of being cast into ‘ hell’ was used by theWooden_church the leaders to keep the people in fear so they would better be able to control the masses.

You can even image a parent saying to the children, ‘if you are not good you will be sent to hell.‘ Hell, now as then, was never a real place… other than a DUMP.

Mankind is so, so easy to be led by those in charge that he agreed that a city dump could be re defined as a place for sinners. A place in the earth that God sends those who do not follow the MAN MADE rules.

Think about that. You have been taught that HELL is a bunring place Fire_2     ‘down there.’  Well yes… ‘hell’ WAS a place ‘down there’,  but it was only a  DUMP.  A DUMP.   Hell was NEVER something other. Hell was and is NOT  a place of everlasting punishment from an All Loving God.

It’s almost comical how man will buy into anything that those he thinks knows more….tell him.

So did God create hell for sinners?  NO. There was only a city dump.created by MAN.

Did you know this about  HELL?
