Christian Doctrines I have never read in the Bible

  1. Human beings have “free will”
  2. God is “in control” of everything that happens on earth
  3. Jesus died to save us from hell – zero verses on this
  4. There are no “second chances” after you die
  5. The “age of accountability” – the idea that before this age you get a free ticket to heaven is nowhere in the Bible
  6. Hell means “separation from God” – it doesn’t say that
  7. God is fair / treats all people the same way
  8. The word “Hell” itself does not appear in the original Greek and Hebrew Bibles. It is a man-made conglomeration of various different words with differing meanings: the grave, the pit, Sheol, Hades, Gehenna, the lake of fire etc.

I have read the OT 5 times and the NT 11 times.
In my opinion, Western-Christianity needs to go back to the drawing board…
