  2. The whole view of traditional hell is just so neither here nor there. It is a lie.
    1. Are people born with inherent/conditional eternal life? If not WHO grants it to them so they maybe conscious for eternity to experience the flames of “Hell”. If we are born with inherent eternal life why do we need to believe in Jesus if we inherently possess it?
    2. At present our bodies are corruptible and decay. If people are to consciously suffer for eternity in hell they have to have bodies that are indestructible so they my feel the pain of the flames for eternity. Who grants them this bodies that never get burnt up?
