David Hayward posted the following cartoon this morning on Facebook. Though a believer, he always does an excellent job of holding up a mirror to critique his community's beliefs and practices.
Of all the beliefs that I have abandoned since leaving the faith, Hell is the most absurd. Has there ever been a doctrine that is believed by so many that makes so little sense on so many levels? The only way anyone could believe such a batshit crazy idea is through indoctrination.
* Hell is for Wimps is the title of a CD by the Christian band, The Newsboys - who I was VERY into at one time. Their lyrics were highly reflective of this cartoon - but they were not trying to be ironic or sarcastic.
