My Own Little Hell If given the opportunity to create my own vision of hell, my version would be based on the seven deadly sins. Each sin would have its own structure of punishment. If a person were to commit several sins, the last sin committed by that person would be the punishment for that individual. At each gate of the sins, there sits a judge that is in the form of whoever that individual loved most in their life and that judge will decide on that person’s life events leading up to where they committed their last sin. The portal will send the individual to their punishment, that will last 2500 years until their soul can have the opportunity to decide what next life they wish to live. Each sin has a cruel and unusual punishment for that individual which is determined by the last person they saw when the sin was committed. This list of sins that I am about to mention are in no particular order, because in my vision of hell, all sin is created equal.
Since the topic is on the great villains of our day, Kim Jong un, if the last sin committed by this villain were to have been wrath that ended with murder. His punishment would be that the person he murdered would be able to murder him over and over again for 2500 years. Another example could be Osama Bin laden, committing Envy. By wanting to be like America so badly, his sin punishment could so happen to be that he peels the skin off his body, layer by layer until it gets to the bone where it starts over and repeated. Sloth is the failure to do the things that one should do, George Bush for example his punishment for failing to run America in the right direction would be for him to walk around blindly in a maze filled with walls that are lined with spikes. Greed which could be the last sin committed by John Gotti, the famous mob gangster. The punishment being judged by the last person he saw could be to lay in the hot sun face up in the dessert while millions of ant crawl over him. Gluttony which by definition of this version of hell is selfishness. Jabba the Hutt, a fat villain from star wars. His punishment could be a tiny animals or insects eating away at his body until there was only his head left to which his body would regrow only for him to feel the pain a thousand times over. Lust to which it means a strong desire. Darth Vader can be an example, for his lust to take over the galaxy and destroy all the Jedi. His punishment of 2500 years of a thirst that is unquenchable, only to have water surround to drink, but he is chained down.
Pride is believing one is better than anyone else. Lance Armstrong is perfect for this case. His pride of not wanting to lose and having to take drugs to compete at a high level. The punishment of climbing a never ending mountain that grows endlessly in the cold sky could be suitable for Lance Armstrong. My vision of hell is different from Dante’s vision. My vision has the idea of judges doing a case by case of how the sin came to be, which determines the many outcomes of what punishment may deem fit for that individual.

Gates of Hell Auguste Rodin

...AUGUSTE RODIN’S GATES OF HELL The Gates of Hell (conceived in 1880 – 1917; by Auguste Rodin (1840 – 1917) is housed at the Musée Rodin in Paris, France. (Musée D'Orsay). This impressive gateway was commissioned by the French state. (Gerald) The new appointed Secretary of Fine Arts, Edmond Tuquet (1836 – 1914), venerates Rodin’s art pieces and commissioned the sculpture on August 16th 1880 for the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. The original arrangements for the Musée des Arts Décoratifs were discarded three years later. (Musèe) Therefore, Rodin left and focused on experimenting and redesigning the portal for the next 20 years. At that point, the sculpture was still remained at its plaster stage; the gateway was not molded in bronze until Rodin’s death in 1917. Rodin’s Gates of Hell was reputed as a distinct piece considering his unique interpretation of its rough surface texture and shape that demonstrates the illustration of Dante Alighieri’s famous poem, The Divine Comedy (1308 – 1321). A few of Rodin’s most famous sculptures including The Thinker (1880 - 1925), The Kiss (1888 – 1889) and The Three Shades (1902) are inspired by the alto relievo sculptures in The Gates of Hell. This masterpiece was created anon after the Franco- Prussian War (1870 – 1871) during the installation of the French Third Republic (1871 – 1940). Auguste Rodin accepted the commission for The Gates of Hell anon after the Franco- Prussian War between French and German Empires. After France has lost the......

Divine Comedy Essay

...The Divine Comedy The afterlife has all been speculation based on ones own beliefs. Some people believe there is simply nothing while others believe that there is a heaven or hell. In the “Divine Comedy”, Dante is lost in a forest when he is found by the spirit of Virgil. This spirit then leads him through the circles of Hell the terraces of Purgatory and the spheres of Heaven. On his journey he sees spirits either punished or rewarded for their decisions on earth. The main theme of The Divine Comedy, written by Dante Alighieri is the choices made in a man’s life and where those choices will put him after death. Dante Alighieri’s version of Hell describes all of the punishments of those condemned, in accord with their sin. On entering Hell, Dante and Virgil read a sign, describing the horrors of hell and that there is no escape. “Through me you enter the city of woes… Abandon all hope ye who enter here.” (Dante Inferno Canto III) As they travel through Hell they see all of the various punishments for the condemned. They find that each sinner is condemned to a punishment that is in relation with his or her sin. For example, the Misers and the Spendthrifts are in Circle IV. Their sins were that they worshipped money so much that they hoarded it, or had so little regard for money that they spent it wildly. Nothing is so loathed to a miser as a spendthrift. So, their punishment is to bombard each other continually with huge stones expressing the antagonism between......

Dante's Inferno Through Film

...individual ideas of what the afterlife will be like. This paper will try to find the differences and the similarities between the hell that is depicted in Dante’s Inferno and in the film What Dreams May Come. The film, What Dreams May Come, is about two people, Chris and Annie, who fall in love and become soul mates. Unfortunately Annie faces many hardships in her life after her two children pass away in a car accident in addition to her husband dying as well. Annie is unable to deal with the pain of her losses and chooses to commit suicide. Because of Annie’s decision to end her life she goes to a special place in hell for those who commit suicide while Chris is in heaven. Once Chris realizes that Annie will never be able to join him in heaven he promises to journey to hell and retrieve Annie and bring her back with him to live in heaven together for eternity. A difference between Dante’s depiction of hell and the film’s view of hell is the concept of where one goes when he or she dies being subjective or objective. In Dante’s Inferno, he creates a hell that is full of creative monsters, and terrifying lands filled with unthinkable punishments for the crimes that were committed while the person was alive. This hell is divided and then subdivided again into smaller more specific realms of hell. In Canto 12-17 Dante describes circle 7 as a specific place in hell for those who have committed crimes of violence. Within this circle there are sub-circles divided up by those......

Strange Meeting Analysis

...Wilfred Owen letter: My own dearest Mother, Immediately after I sent my last letter, more than a fortnight ago, we were rushed up into the Line. Twice in one day we went over the top, gaining both our objectives. Our A Company led the Attack, and of course lost a certain number of men. I had some extraordinary escapes from shells & bullets. Fortunately there was no bayonet work, since the Hun ran before we got up to his trench. You will find mention of our fight in the Communiqué; the place happens to be the very village which Father named in his last letter! Never before has the Battalion encountered such intense shelling as rained on us as we advanced in the open. The Colonel sent round this message the next day: 'I was filled with admiration at the conduct of the Battalion under the heavy shell-fire.... The leadership of officers was excellent, and the conduct of the men beyond praise.' The reward we got for all this was to remain in the Line 12 days. For twelve days I did not wash my face, nor take off my boots, nor sleep a deep sleep. For twelve days we lay in holes, where at any moment a shell might put us out. I think the worst incident was one wet night when we lay up against a railwav embankment. A big shell lit on the top of the bank, just 2 yards from my head. Before I awoke, I was blown in the air right away from the bank! I passed most of the following days in a railway Cutting, in a hole just big enough to lie in, and covered with corrugated iron.

God Judges No One

...something we create and I think that is the main claim in “God Judges No One”, we are how we choose to be. Once God has created us and we are here on earth we decide our own hell and heaven, and that decision comes from what we do in life, how we do it, and who it affects. Most people say well how could God create this murderer, how could he bring this man into the world knowing what he will do. This is where we draw flaw in how we view hell and what God creates and does. That murderer is living in his own hell he created, he is forever out casted he “ when we do not share our lives, we end up outside of life.” this is a great example of how the author says we make our life, God puts here and we do the rest, essentially our heaven, is happiness, being with loved ones, having love and a community that you create around you of faith and something that is your own heaven, away from the images we believe of clouds, all white and in the sky. We create our heaven and we create our hell. That murderer is being publicized everywhere, name calling, most likely in jail, four walls, horrendous food, and damnation from the outside world, will never be allowed into the free world, a righteous man without scrutiny and scorn, one could say that is a definite type of hell. When we decide or choose to believe what hell is or what we think is portrayed the generic flames, and eternal fire, we stop and blame God for all the bad things that...

Hell Research Paper

...Hell is Real Heaven and Hell are Literal Places The idea of there being an actual “heaven” and “hell” encourages believers and non-believers because they are places that supposedly represent our eternity. It is amazing to vision a place of eternal life with no sickness or aging, in the presence of God and other loved ones. Heaven does exist according to the Bible, and is the destination of the believer in Jesus Christ at the completion of life here on this earth. What is not amazing is the fact that there is a place for those whom God chooses will not inherit everlasting life, which is known by all of us as hell. It is not metaphorical nor is it mythological. In fact, it is real in every sense of the word. A true literal hell does exist; this is the final state of those who are not in the book of life” (Guthrie p. 887). What is Hell? This will be the focus of this discussion, the eternal state of those individuals whose name will not be found in the book of life. To understand the implications of the declaration of a place of eternal torment, one must first understand what that place is. The common use of the word “Hell” is considered unrealistic to many people. In the bible, the idea of the term “hell” is expressed in more ways than one. The terms Gehenna (Matthew 5:22), Hades (Matthew 11:23), and Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15) are terms that have been interpreted to believe as hell. The term ‘Gehenna’ occurs twelve times in the King James Version of the bible. It......

The Inferno (Rough Draft)

...Inferno: Dante's immoral drama of a journey through hell. In his poem, the Inferno, Dante mentions many well know people. Dante mentions such people as Pope Anastasius, Alexander the great, Cleopatra, and many others. The poem is about Dante who has died, and upon reaching the afterlife; he was stopped short of heaven by three beasts. When Dante flees the beasts, Virgil appears. Virgil states that he is there to take Dante to heaven, but it will be a long trip through hell. Virgil tells Dante that the only way to heaven is to follow him. Dante follows, and the majority of the poem is a very descriptive narrative of what Dante sees and encounters. Throughout his journey, Dante sees and encounters people he had known or read about in life. These are all people who had sinned in life and now in death, are punished eternally. Dante's version of hell is that people will have their sin turned against them. In many instances, Dante points out what the sin of the person was, and describes in detail, how they are being punished in hell. In Canto III, The Vestibule of Hell, Dante talks about the Opportunists. Souls who in life never took a side, but instead were on the side where they themselves would gain the most. Among these souls was Pope Celestine V. In life Celestine allowed the church to become corrupted because he feared for his own safety. The pope, who watched out for him, doesn't have a place in hell. He is neither in hell, nor out of it, as in life he was neither for good......

What About Hell

...What is Hell? The finite will never be able to comprehend the infinite. Human thought cannot grasp the perfect nature of God because we are not perfect, and we are born into sin. We try to rationalize ideas that do not make sense in our minds, but really make perfect sense if we apply them to scripture. God allowing any human into heaven ultimately shows his love. Humanity on a day-to-day basis goes against what God commands, and what God expects from us. No one deserves to go to heaven. If we choose to live in sin all of our lives why would God allow us in heaven? People who love the Lord and say no to earthly temptations will experience riches in Heaven, and those who choose to live for pleasure now will feel the wrath of God in Hell. God is sovereign and people forget this, and we must not confuse love with justice. There are three popular views on what happens to the soul when you die. Eternal punishment is the opposite of eternal life. It’s that idea for that eternity one will suffer in the absence of Christ instead of living eternally in his presence. In this view sin will ultimately be punished for those who do not repent. Annihilationism claims that when a person dies they will pass, or ultimately perish out of existence. This theory can be broken down further classifying the soul as naturally mortal, God gives immortality, or all are immortal unless destroyed by God. The third view is universalism, which claims that atonement is not limited and extends to all.......

Innocent Souls Of The Dead In Dante's Inferno

...In Dante’s Inferno, Dante creates a fantastical, yet dark underworld that portrays the various tortured souls of the dead. The concept is the souls’ committed sins completed in their lifetime is directly related to the punishment they must face in Hell. Through this, the souls forever remember their sins and face the consequences for eternity. Dante’s illustrative, encompassing journey has served as an image of the environment Hell to warn the sinners of the suffering expected when a particular sin is committed and not repented as soon as possible. The sinners who are positioned in Canto V give in to their sexual desires of lust. They are pulled into a violent storm that exudes intense despair and suffering. The storm represents how those who have sinned felt before death. In Hell, the storm manifests itself into a physical form. Amongst the souls who are engulfed in the storm are two souls that are combined together, Francesca and Paolo. Prior to Francesca and Paolo deaths, Francesca is married but commits...

Conflict in Glory

...1 LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BABPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY THE PEACE MAKING PASTOR: A BIBLICAL GUIDE TO RESOLVING CHURCH CONFLICT A REPORT SUBMITTED TO DR. DONALD HICKS BY JAMES E. JORDAN LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA AUGUST 11, 2011 2 Contents Introduction Biblical Background Antithesis Examination God-ward Perspective Conclusion Bibliography 3 3 4 5 5 7 3 Introduction In this report, I will examine an example where conflict is the substance of the text within the Bible. I will discuss how the story unfolds and demonstrate the antithesis between the children of God and the children of Man. Antithesis is defined as “contrast or opposition.”1 I will also discuss God-ward perspective in relation to conflict. Biblical Background “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 [KJV]). This verse out of the book of Romans is a clear example of antithesis within the Bible. When the entire book of Romans is reviewed it is obvious that the author of this letter to Rome is Paul (Romans 1:1; [KJV]). Paul writes this letter to the Romans somewhere between the times of A.D. 55 and 58 and occurred “during his third missionary journey.”2 It is rightly placed first among the Epistles because it is the most complete exposition in the New Testament of the central truths of Christianity. Paul needed to visit the Roman Christians and his desire to communicate to them the great doctrines of grace......

Mormonism Vs Christianity

...Christians believe that your soul is taken to either heaven or hell (Gray), but Mormons believe your soul is taken to either paradise or spirit prison (Taysom). The Christians heaven is a “place of peace and communion with God,” (Gray). The Christian’s heaven is like the Mormon’s paradise. The Mormon’s paradise is a place with peace and rest (Taysom). Christianity’s hell is a place for those who did not seek forgiveness (Gray). In hell, people are in anguish in flames (English Standard Version, Luke 16:25). The Mormon’s sprit prison is a place where a person is tormented by guilt and denied rest (Taysom). Mission work can still be one while a Mormon is in sprit prison. This allows a Mormon to be able to get into heaven even though they did not get into paradise right after death...

Worldview Essay

...religion changes because new information is tested. Not only is it that the world changes constantly, but I do not find the courage to tell people about my views if only in the end I will be scolded on what may or may not be right about them because in all actuality it is my choice to believe whatever I insist on. The thought that I am able to change my mind of beliefs also frightens me that I will never be quite right. What I do know I believe about God and Jesus is questionable, I am aware that they are two different people and primarily play two different roles and are supposed to be that way. The bible is the “book of life” and it is said to guide us through life. It is known to determine whether or not we are going to “heaven” or “hell”. It teaches us how to live in the name of Jesus without sinning and committing any of the “wrongs” stated in the Bible. I am also aware that the Bible ends with “The Book of Revelation” and it states how God is coming back, but without reading it to get my own perspective I am unaware of what is really going to happen and the “Christian community” all have different beliefs about the revelation. The thing about religion is you have to know what you believe to be true and what a myth is. Worldview is not necessarily a “worldview” because everyone gets their personal beliefs upon it. God is the almighty king, he is the father, and he is the man above all humanity. He is the one who “rules” the world. More commonly known as the......
