Jon, you are a lot deeper than I am. I think it is a good topic.

Thanks Joe, my wife pointed out to me that a lot of the reason that I like discussing things like this and the level of comfort and freedom I have with it is because I was never really indoctrinated into a specific mindset. That and i’m Just weird lol. I don’t think that I’m deeper than anyone, I just look at things a different way than many I guess.
Have you heard about what many Christian churches are doing on Halloween? They are having what they call "Hell Night" right inside the church. Their purpose which they have admitted to is to traumatize and instill fear into people to get saved. They turned the church into a gruesome display of death, evil and the torments of hell.

A few years ago, my daughter was invited by a friend to go to his church that was having what they call "Hell Night" on Halloween. My daughter asked me if I wanted to go and my answer was immediate and quick, absolutely not. But my granddaughter agreed to go with my daughter. I had no say so on the matter. I couldn't stop my daughter and granddaughter from going to that church's "Hell Night".

They came back and were telling me about what had happened there which I already had a good idea that it was going to be that way and that's the reason I didn't want to go. The main reason that I didn't want to go is because I know that Halloween is probably the highest satanic day in the year. And it certainly has no place in a Christian church.

My granddaughter was a young teenager at the time and she was telling me how these very young children were so traumatized by what they were seeing and experiencing that they were crying and very frightened. I imagine that those children had nightmares about that for awhile

This had a very negative effect on my granddaughter and has given her the wrong impression of what a Christian church is, what a Christian is, what Christianity is, and above all, what God is like and who He really is. To this day, she wants nothing to do with Christianity.

.

Sorry TJ, I tried to hit the “Like” button and hit dislike instead, and I don’t know how to undo it. I think that i’ve Heard of “hell night” like that before but have never known of it being done around here. The idea may very well have been intended positively but I don’t see it actually doing much good.

I can understand how it could have negative effect on Christianity more frequently than doing any harm. Scaring people to Jesus just seems really insensitive and backwards to me. I can understand that there is consequences that God has outlined for the disobedient, but threatening them with Hell and Dangling reward are actually detrimental to why Christians become Christians. We want people to genuinely love God, not just Go to heaven or be afraid of death. That’s my opinion anyway, a Christian can be a Christian for the wrong reasons and some could Be in for a nasty surprise in the future with some of the thinking that is being perpetrated. Good intent can still backfire if it reinforces the wrong line of thinking. There’s a balance and it can become off kilter very easily.
