  • A History of What the Hell!

    Pagan ideas of a fiery netherworld date back as far as Egypt's Nimrod. Way before Christ, in the 6th century BC, Zoroaster taught the Persians of a Lord of Lies who lived in the dark reaches under the earth recording the deeds of men as debits and credits. After death, souls went to be judged, and if found evil, would be doomed to torment. To easily win pagan converts, the church adopted these theories and began relating Zoroastic meanings to symbolic verses. Apostle Paul predicted such distortions (apostasy) would occur (Acts 20:29-30).

  • Povijest...kako je nastao Pakao

    Poganske ideje o vatrenom podzemnom svijetu sežu natrag sve do Nimroda u Egiptu. Još prije Krista, u 6 st. Zaratustra je naučavao o Perzijskom Gospodaru Laži koji je živio u tamnim predjelima pod zemljom i zapisivao djela ljudi kao dugove i kredite. Nakon smrti, duše bi išle na sud, i ako bi se utvrdilo da su zle, bile bi osuđene na mučenje. Kako bi lakše pridobili poganske obraćenike, crkva je usvojila te teorije i počela pripisivati Zaratustrina značenja simboličkim recima. Apostol Pavao je prorekao da će se dogoditi takvo iskrivljavanje (otpadništvo) (Djela 20:29-30).
