Because regardless of our religious beliefs, many of us are products of a decidely Christian culture. Just because we don't believe the Bible is the word of God, doesn't mean it hasn't influenced us greatly and isn't a significant work, worthy to know about.

I like how God is going to punish me for all eternity, just because I don't follow a particular belief to the letter. There are literally dozens of religions out there that claim I will be punished for all eternity, if I don't follow their ideas. I have no idea how I'm supposed to know the right one, but if God wants to punish me for all eternity because of that, I say let him do so. He would be contradicting some of the phrases in this quiz though, but I guess that's his problem.

I love how every single religious person in the world believes firmly that THEY understand the religion and everyone else is wrong. It's amazing. As if the thousands of years of preceding exegesis, philosophy, religious tradition, councils, decrees, fatwas, and wars fought over trivial differences in theology were all for naught... if only they had waited for Brian from Kentucky to come along and asked him what it all meant, THEN they would have had the answers!

It is amazing how many christians firmly believe that. I do not, however, claim to understand religion and the Bible perfectly. I do not think everyone else has it wrong. Every single religion in the entire world is not perfect, and will have something wrong at some point or another. I don't actually necessarily call myself any specific religion. Sure, there are ones that might have their beliefs closest to mine, ones that I attend their Church services, and so on. But in the end, I believe that some people from all religions will be in Heaven, because God, if he exists, will only judge you based on what you know. In the end, God's true people will be in Heaven. It won't be only catholics in heaven, or only baptists. It will be God's true people, those who strove to have a relationship with him and did whatever they could to know him better. I even truly believe that some atheists will be in Heaven!

But getting back to my main point, I don't claim to understand the Bible perfectly, not at all. But I have been and am still reading my Bible everyday, studying it, expanding my faith, expanding my knowledge and beliefs. I am studying it for myself, looking at popular doctrines, and finding the truth behind them. There is so much more I know I don't understand, and I am learning that. But as far as this little comment thread goes, I feel pretty certain that the Bible does not teach an eternal fiery torment. This is one of the topics I've studied the most, and IF God exists, and IF the Bible is true, then a good amount, not all, but a lot of Christians are misunderstanding what the Bible teaches on hellfire. That's all I'm saying, that the Bible, regardless of if its true or not, does not teach an eternal fiery doom for the wicked. If someone thinks otherwise though, please do show me some proof! I am willing to look at and study it. I know I don't understand everything.

In the end, I am merely trying to spread the truth about what the Bible teaches, because no one, not even me, understands everything there is to understand. And in my quest to understand it more, I am simply trying to share what I have learned, with those who want it. =) Sorry for my lengthy response. I probably missed your point entirely, good sir Kal, but I just wanted to speak what was on my mind. I await your response and the responses of any others who have them! Good day sirs and mesdames.

And I don't doubt it. I'm sure there are thousands, millions of people out there that understand the Bible and the truth about what it teaches way better than I do. But that's why I'm willing to "argue", so that I can learn more, and maybe they will too... When I say "spread the truth", I am merely talking about the things I do understand, nothing more. I'm not "spreading the truth" about the things I don't understand, because, well, I don't understand them!

@S3AM: Yes, I can. Here's an excellent article with tons of references to it: https://www.gotquestions.org/hell-real-eternal.html @kalbahamut: Not every single person believes they are the sole understander of their religion. In fact, our beliefs are (except for really small and unimportant things) incredibly concurrent. In a similar way, two evolutionists might differ on whether a rock is 1.7 or 1.8 billion years old, but they both agree that the Big Bang occurred.

@Aesthus - Excellent article indeed, I suppose. It still hasn't convinced me, however. I wrote out about 20 comments in reply in just about an hour, and I was trying to keep it short. However, I didn't want to flood this quiz with more debate comments. There are already too many debate comments on a nice little quiz about Bible quotes, and this is honestly just not the place for debates. So here's what I did. I created a quiz, specifically for debating Biblical hellfire. I then posted my entire 20 comment reply on there, for you, and whoever else to read. Here be the link to my "quiz": https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/195801/bible-study-on-fire. I suppose you could also just access the quiz by clicking on my lovely little name as well, but hey. Links are awesome.

This is where I get irritated with religion as it is so judgemental. I judge no one for their beliefs but when they tell me I have to believe in what they believe it is sheer arrogance. I went to a funeral the other day in an Anglican church and instead of honouring the man who died the preacher went on and on about that if you do not believe in JC then you are lost and with hope. my wife, who is jewish, was visibly offended by the repeated claims that we are without hope and sadly left that funeral with a large degree of sadness for lack of respect shown for the man who passed away and the almost anger at anyone who did not believe in JC. Shame on that man.

That's basically how these religious quizzes go, particularly about Christianity. I don't think there's a single Christian quiz on this site that doesn't have people bringing up some sort of Christian v. Atheist debate in the comments, and if there is one that doesn't, it's bound to have one soon.

I believe that many latter day atheists were dragged to church multiple times a week (if not a day) by parents/guardians and grew to so hate the ritual that they chose atheism as adults. I am also opposed to the blasphemy of many religious rituals, but it does not lead me to deny the existence of the Almighty.

Do people choose not to believe in God? I don't think that what you believe is your choice as such. Your conjecture might be true other than that occasionally, but I can't think of many cases where that leads to very vocalised or passionate atheism. More likely I would imagine it would lead to just not going to church. Most atheists who will talk about it willingly are atheists just because there is no evidence that any god exists.

That's not factually correct. You probably know very many atheists, they're just not vocal or in your face about it. They would probably say so if you had a conversation on religion (or perhaps not..there are many "closet atheists" that don't feel comfortable sharing their beliefs for a variety of reasons. There are certainly very vocal atheists, just as there are vocal proponents of practically every belief (feminism, christianity, etc).

I've said this before and it was deleted by the quiz master, but I will try again, and will continue trying in different forums until one quiz master is sufficiently brave to let it stand: Kalbahamut, please do the rest of us a favor and stop beating your chest with your Atheism. Personally, I don't give a bloody towel whether you are or not but I am sick and tired of reading about it.

I take back the 2nd-to-last thing I said above (which might not make sense if some or all of these comments get deleted). But I had said diva makes no comments that ever add anything to the conversation, which I thought was ironic since he accused me of posting mountains of drivel.
A few minutes ago he posted a comment to my presidential middle names quiz that had substance, was not a personal attack, and that I happened to agree with. So... okay... you are capable of adding something to the conversation that isn't merely libel. I was wrong.

I love it how Christians think they own the Bible. I love it how they think noone else gets to talk about it. I love it how they're so adamant in what they say. I love the way the dance around the point and segue when you bring up and one of the countless atrocities committed in the name of God. And i love the way they miss the really obvious contradictions, like Jesus saying "don't make an idol of me". I'm pretty sure if he did a comeback tour he'd be pretty pissed off to see everyone toting crucifixes. "Oh no! 2000 years and they still wanna string me up!"
