The miscellaneous writings of Mark Bridgeman

Why has the description of hell been so embraced when we know its true historical meaning is nothing more than a state of death?

“You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think. If the gods exist, then to abandon human beings is not frightening; the gods would never subject you to harm. And if they don’t exist, or don’t care what happens to us, what would be the point of living in a world without gods or Providence? But they do exist, they do care what happens to us, and everything a person needs to avoid real harm they have placed within him. If there were anything harmful on the other side of death, they would have made sure that the ability to avoid it was within you.”

Marcus Aurelius – Meditations
