Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


THE OBJECTION TO HELL FROM OUR INFINITE WEAKNESS

The Catholic Church teaches that Hell is everlasting punishment meaning you are responsible for being there.

It argues that sin is ultimately the wish to destroy God as he really is. That is why it deserves infinite punishment for it opposes infinite goodness.

Arnold Lunn in his letter to Ronald Knox in the book, Difficulties (page 68) said that though that makes sense the problem is that God cannot punish us infinitely for we sin through our infinite weakness. Infinite weakness cannot deserve infinite punishment.

Knox replied that we are not infinitely weak for we have some free will and some power to avoid sin.
