I'm confused as to what to believe when it comes to hell and the devil. I was raised Roman Catholic and was taught the whole fire and brimstone, little evil man with horns and a pitchfork theology but, since I've left the RCC and started attending my hubbys church I've been really questioning it (in fact I don't really believe that at all). Our church teaches that Hell is right here on earth it is our adamic nature and the sin which surrounds us and that the devil (hebres word meaning: adversary) can be ourselves, our friends, our neighbours or anything which tempts us and not necessarily a physical being. Yet, the bible talks so much about the devil so it's hard not to believe in an actual scary little man who whispers bad thoughts into our ears. My question is what do you as moms and Christians believe? and why?
