← Effect of the concept of hell on children

Congratulations- I cannot imagine what fear of hell is like since I was lucky NOT to be fully indoctrinated; in addition to the other useful comments may I say this fear will subside with age and knowledge. I believe it is an extension of the natural fear of death which at your age is possibly at its peak.

It makes me angry that parents (and others) who supposedly love their children can subject them to emotional torture but that's the way religions operate... Always remember- there's not a SHRED of evidence for ('faith' in) imaginary god(s) and this has been true throughout all of human history.
