What do you think happens in the end to pedophiles, child killers in general people that do harmful things to children.  And do you think same thing happens to Priests that harm children?????

I think this might be a question for the religious board... but ah well
The same thing happens to them as to us all we die full of guilt and become dust.  Why should a preist be any different to anyother sex offender or harmer of children? Are they any less aware of the damage they're doing, or perhaps they're less to blame because the church did not fully support their normal sexual urges....

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

Well, I've never really heard anyone advance this idea, so it could be pure fantasy on my part (though I've heard Hindus have a similar idea with the idea of reincarnation into a lower form, but that may be a misunderstanding on my part)...but I'd think in an ideal universe (if we have that in some sense, I don't know) that maybe their energy would either get recycled into a non-sentient form like a plant or something, or maybe just dissipate into such (seeing as energy as far as we know always just changes to another form and can't be destroyed). It just makes sense to me because there's no punishment that would be truly satisfactory and yet you don't want them just to get off scot free, either... Of course sometimes maybe the process doesn't happen properly and that could be part of why there are some negative entities...

I have moved this here because I agree with Mell. This is a better board for this topic.

Did not know where to post but I figured that it would be put in the correct spot.  I think I was just curious on everyone's thoughts about this subject.  Do you think at the last minute they can repent and all be good??

What good is last minute repentance with no chance to find out if you can live a better life?

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

I think the priests just might have it a little harder than ordinary sinners.

Yes, I agree with Hawker.  In the case of Priests that are found to be molestors (and they are FEW and FAR BETWEEN), not only are they harming innocent children, but they are breaking a vow of chastity that they made..and violating the spiritual trust that the congregation has in them.  Triple Whammy Sin.  

Either way, while I don't personally believe in the Christian Hell, I do have some theories as to what happens to those that do these kinds of things and other things that I consider to be horrid and evil.  But I won't know until I myself am dead....

ummm...just realized how that last bit of my post sounds....  :0  I mean to say that I won't know how close my theories are until I die and then learn what we cannot understand here.  Not that I do horrid and evil things.

pedophiles and the like would, and should, find a very happy home in hell. personally, i think it should be a special level of hell with tortures too numerous and bizarre to fathom. but maybe that's just me.

repentance is possible; true repentance, but last minute, deathbed conversions are probably rarely meant. but that's between them and God, I guess.

Christians believe that if you pray to God for forgiveness, you'll go to Heaven, regardless of your deeds. Scary thought to think Hitler is living it up with Ghandi.

Christians believe if you truly repent (everyone has their own idea what this entails), then they are cleansed from their sins.

Hawkers,

I personally believe we will be judged according to the light and knowledge we possess when we sin.  With greater knowledge comes greater opportunity (and greater punishment) for sin.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere
