Bishop Says The Church Invented Hell To Control People
This is a little out f the ordinary, but we came a cross this video earlier and felt that it was interesting, especially for people of faith. Hell is a much debated topic in religion. A few years ago, the Pope said that Hell is not a physical place that your souls when you die, if you’re a bad person. He said that “Hell” is simply a state o being with God. This notion is backed up by the fact that people’s imagery of Hell (a pit of fire) is not biblical. It comes from by Dante Alighieri’s imagination, manifested in the classic book Dante’s Inferno.
In this interview from 2008, John Spong, a retired Episcopal bishop from Newark, NJ. He claims that “Hell” is just an thing the Church invented to keep control over followers.
