I To Hell

I To Hell

I do not want the eternal resurrection
All reborn as John the Divine did claim
I do not want any of my sins forgiven
When I alone the only one to blame
I never want to gain divine redemption
My soul to save and to live again
I would prefer eternal pain and damnation
Than my soul anothers’ theirs to claim
Why would I want to be forgiven
My place in Heaven a confessions reward
I would prefer to suffer under Satan
Than be blessed by a Saviours two edged sword

So erase my name from the Book of the Living
While another condemned to Hells eternal suffering

I trust more the word of an unbeliever
Than that of a priest damning all to Hell
I will never see a preacher my redeemer
When the words of a Book is all they sell
I hear more truth in the words of a sinner
Than I have ever heard in a sermon preached
And in the open truth of a man condemned the failure
And more compassion in a man whose goals are never reached
Why would I want to enter into eternal Heaven
While a child suffers and starves here alone on Earth
I now shun the Cup of wine and bread unleavened
And see only sin in expecting my Holy rebirth

Send me to Hell though my confessions are done
No Creator would condemn all to Hell to save only one.

I hope this doesn’t offend anyone. I just have been wondering at the judgements of those that preach not to judge. Even Christ on the Cross sent one crucified with him to Hell.

    I don’t understand what you mean by, “Even Christ on the Cross sent one crucified with him to Hell.”

  • Two others were crucified next to Christ one a thief the other a murderer. Christ said one would dine with him in Heaven, the other would go to Hell…

    With respect, Greg, I am afraid you are mistaken. The passage you are referring to is in the Gospel of St Luke.Jesus did indeed say to one of the criminals crucified with him, “Verily I say unto thee Today shalt thou be with me in paradise,” but he did not say to the other one that he would go to Hell.

  • I’ll drag out my catholic version and read Mathew, Mark and John..and anyway why only one to paradise and not all

    I am afraid that the Catholic version (by which I assume you mean the Douay version) says essentially the same thing. There’s not much point in looking up the other Gospels as they don’t say a word about him going to Hell either.

    As for your question, Jesus only mentioned the Good Thief going to Heaven as he was not giving a sermon, but talking to one man, and assuring him of his own salvation.

    If you are going to misquote God you must expect fanatics like me to point it out :0 )

  • Just one thing DV, God has never writen a word. Are you going to comment on the poem

    – Gregory John O'Flaherty

    No assumptions taken but one was forgiven; therein is the difference, and I’m sure Gregory would agree with me.
