Those that are even merely religious will testify the “horror stories” of Hell. It is a deep pit of fire where all of the sinners go and live in damnation for eternity. We have grown up fearing Hell and try our utmost best throughout life to avoid sin and to be sent to Heaven. Well, as the wise Billy Joel once said, “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints, the sinners have much more fun.”
Therefore, for this weeks blog, I would like to discuss my desire to visit Hell. No, I don’t wish to end up there myself but could you imagine all of the people that have ended up in Hell? There is the obvious debacle and question of which people ended up in Hell. Did Michael Jackson really make it through the pearly white gates of heaven or is he now sitting back with Satin in the great depths of fire? Personally, I would be amazed to see the ins and outs of apparently “the most horrifying place imaginable.”
Some of you may ask why I wouldn’t want to visit Heaven. I can only assume that the scenery is much more beautiful and the people are much more respectable. Furthermore, you would be able to see loved ones that you have lost due to old age, illnesses, accidents etc. Well, I am going to keep my fingers crossed and go off of the assumption that I will make it into Heaven some day and I will get to be able to spend the rest of eternity with loved ones. So why not do something rebellious and get a quick glimpse of the total other end of the spectrum? Why not visit Hell? We only hear about Heaven and Hell from books such as the bible. So why not take this opportunity to see for ourselves what the truth really is? At the very least my trip to Hell will be so horrific that it will scare the pants off me to never do anything wrong again so I don’t end up there. Personally, I think that there could be some humor to my trip to Hell. Think of all those martyrs and people we viewed as heroes that have come to pass. How absurd would it be to take a trip to Hell and see that President Lincoln or Princess Diana has ended up there? Furthermore, can you imagine getting the opportunity to talk to the most feared ‘person’ ever…Satan himself? The questions I would have for him are endless.
So maybe it would be a little morbid to visit Hell…it certainly isn’t a dream vacation to Hawaii or Bora Bora. But what the Hell (pun intended) if you get the opportunity to visit a place anywhere in the universe just once, you might as well take advantage of it.
*For the record, this post was meant to be entirely humorous! I am not personally very religious so I hope it doesn’t offend anyone!
