Certain theologies have found a way to plant the most sinister concepts into the minds of otherwise moral people. There are pious individuals who think that only those who convert to their religion are to be spared the pains of eternal hellfire.
What can be said about this? Can we still consider those who hold such notions as true to be moral? Not every religious person thinks that those who believe differently will be doomed, but many of them do. Some even believe that the unevangelized do not deserve perdition, but claim that it is God’s decision. Is this not a moral failure?
It must be noted that the problem of the unevangelized is an issue that theologians are fully aware of. The issue is still being debated over. Many religious individuals have rebuked the idea that the unevangelized are doomed. It is a theology that cannot be reconciled with humanitarianism and some have recognized this.
The theology of hell teaches that the suffering of this world is only a fraction of what’s possible, and not only will some people receive this eternal suffering, but they deserve it. They failed to worship the correct god. This is an incredibly evil idea, and it sits unacknowledged in mind the minds of billions.
