Hell Is A Man On A Milk Crate
Of course there is a Hell. It manifests in many different ways throughout our lives. I believe the most potent hells are the inner ones we create for ourselves. However, once in a while another person’s hell is imposed upon us.
I walked by a hell last Sunday.
This version of hell came in the form of a young man in a nice suit standing on a milk crate outside a busy shopping mall, screaming about Judgment Day and Gods Wrath at the top of his lungs.
I felt a moment of anger at his judgmentally, then a moment of resentment for his delusions of superiority, then a fleeting afterthought of disgust for his pride. Far be it from me to quote the Bible, but I do recall the passage;
Matthew 6:5,6 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing… on the street corners to be seen by men.”
I can’t imagine the hell of trying to prove your piousness to the world 24/7, to the point of giving up actually living your life in the process.
Life – God = Hell
Hell is just the absence of God.
