I’m not sure how universal the concept of “Hell” really is but many Christians believe only the Christian God can make good on the threat of one. More so, that Hell only exists by His allowance. Brett Keane has a video on YouTube that illustrates just how basic the concept really is to many of the world’s religions and he surmises that if Christians want to threaten him with eternal damnation, “They’re in the same boat as I am…”.
Good point, Brett.
It might be nice to have a religion that doesn’t use fear of eternal suffering as a motivator, but it’s a powerfully effective method for gaining followers. I can understand why so many religions utilize it as a selling point.
Interesting that if you remove the apostrophe, the title of the song is “Hell Fuck You Up”. Coincidence? I think not.
