Fact of the Day: Underworld

While the concept of hell is about the same for almost all versions of Christianity, hell does not exist in Judaism. There is the place called Sheol mentioned in the Tanakh/Old Testament where most or all of the dead seem to go. However it is described much different than Christianity as it has been told to be a dark and gloomy place.

Interesting, that every religion has a place where it puts its non-faithful people...

This is, indeed, interesting, Adam...
as for the Chicken and Dumplings over at my place...I am not much of a meat eater, either, and I have always just picked out the dumplings and leave all the chicken to someone else. :)

I love it all the theoriƩs the right question should be, which is the right?
I am a Christian and I still have my doubts about hell.
