Dear Servant_of_Christ,

Why I am against the Hell concept is that it is only a concept a relative term invented for threatening the masses for not doing socially incorrect crimes.

Well, I suppose that we should remove all warning signs because they threaten us with things we don't want to hear. If your house was on fire, I would immediately tell you because I genuinely want to help you. I wouldn't be threatening you would I?

I am telling you sorry in advance for the argument in the following sentences may hurt your religious feelings but I have to since you have started the thread with the question mark on Hinduism.( See the Heading.)

My religious feelings? Don't worry, bring your best arguments.

For argument sake if I am agreeing that there is Hell, Heaven ,Original Sin etc., then can you please answer the question that the people who were responsible for Christ's crucification, whether they have committed a Sin. If so where will they go? Will it be Heaven or Hell? It will be Hell naturally. Isn't it?

It depends on whether they choose forgiveness.

Now come to the Sin Part. Jesus was crucified to wash all the Sins of mankind. Isn't it? Then those who crucified the Christ have done a good thing that they were instruments in washing the sins of the whole humankind inclusive of themselves. Isn't it? Then naturally they have to given a place in Heaven. Isn't it?

And this is where your argument fails. You believe that if a person is instrumental in fulfilling God's plan then that person automatically goes to heaven. You see that these people wanted to kill Jesus for bad reason and not good (what good reason is there to kill the Son of God?).

So I think that the concept of Heaven and Hell complicate our logical reasoning and better to avoid them instead of wasting our time on them.

Please answer to my doubts.

Your answers don't take into account biblical matters. Here's a Scripture passage for you:

5But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) 6Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world? 7Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?" 8Why not say—as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say—"Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is deserved. (Romans 3:5-8) NIV

Each person is accountable for his actions (except those physically unable). God can make good result from evil but that doesn't make the wrongdoer righteous.

God Bless
