Go to: Tired of arguing

SavageMM's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by SavageMM

I have stopped arguing with religious people on the internet. It's just too frustrating. In real life it's still fun though. Especially in the Dutch bible belt.

Go to: Effect of the concept of hell on children

SavageMM's Avatar Jump to comment 53 by SavageMM

I was brought up in a fairly strict and conservative strand of christianity. From an early age I started wondering what would happen to all the people that had never even heard of jebus. Or friends that did not believe the same things as my parents did. It was made clear that they would burn in hell. The years following have been terrible, the threat of hell was as real as anything. I suffered from severe OCD with my soul being at risk when I would not comply with the thoughts that were given to me by satan. It sounds too weird to be believed by someone that now questions everything without regard (and perhaps with resentment) for the 'holy'. I cannot stress enough how the indoctrination has fucked up some of my best years, I sometimes hate my parents for stuffing this religious nonsense down my throat. Even today at age 30 I sometimes wake up in a panic, quickly realizing that there, thankfully, is no god.

Question everything.
