← Effect of the concept of hell on children

You have my compliments and respect for starting to think about this at your young age. I never had this fear, though I am the grandson of a Presbyterian minister, so I can only give you this observation: a "loving god" would not make it so easy to get put into an eternal barbeque pit, nor would he (or she) give punishment so out of proportion to the supposed offense. If the bible and all the "believers" can be wrong about god's loving nature, then they can be wrong about god's existence. Personally, I don't give it a second's thought.

BTW, look up the difference between "affect" and "effect"... your title should include the latter. Just saying. ;-)
