For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.(2 Timothy 4:3-4) NKJV
Most people don’t believe that hell is real. For most people it’s fallen through the cracks of mythology, which is odd because ocean water warming data shows that our oceans are warming from the bottom up.
Opposition to the idea that hell is a place is basically everywhere. For the most part if you tell someone today that you believe that hell is real they’re going to think that you’re somewhere on a scale between quaint and lunatic. That’s fine. It simply means that the people of our times have been trained to be incapable of independent thought. However, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing because this is, after all, God’s plan and he knows what he’s doing.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
We can classify the opposition to hell into two broad categories, religious and secular. Secular opposition to hell includes current theories of Earth’s internal structure which everybody is taught because there’s nothing else. Part of this is a pseudoscientific rationalization of the premise that nuclear decay rates have always been constant. It gives us some light entertainment, like were Adam and Eve toast? but we can resolve the problem of exponentially decreasing nuclear decay if hell is at the center of the Earth.
Religious opposition to hell comes out of textual criticism and an attempt to mold Christian doctrine and teaching to be aligned with secular beliefs. To make a long story short, Christianity was infiltrated by sun worshipers who then crafted THE NARRATIVE of mainstream science (SciPop). On one hand, evil has been at work and there have been wolves among the flock weakening Christian doctrine, but on the other hand, since this is all part of God’s grand plan it’s not necessary to blame anyone. It’s a fulfillment of prophecy about something that the Bible refers to as a strong delusion.
