I went to a Catholic school. Although I wasn’t a Catholic the school accepted non-Christians as students.
While I was there I had gone to church once in a while, had read the Bible and had tried to fathom God.
But what I found problematic was the idea that non-believers went to hell. Having travelled from Young I saw different people from different cultures, non-Christian cultures included. So it seemed strange to me that these people who may have never encountered Christianity will, without a choice, go to hell. This being a decision by someone or something else.
If I had wanted all others to go to hell (so to speak) all I had to do was keep them away from Christianity. I could not believe a benevolent being would do that.
For that reason alone I had began to question the validity of Christianity and other religions.
So I feel not for those in the jungle but for those exposed to a religion that condemns them to the concept of heaven and God.
I am lucky because I saw other possibilities, not tied to one way of thinking. I wish others to be able to see the illogical discourses of such thinking.
