Why are You in Hell Pilgrim?
We create our own hell -- it is the sum of all our decisions (exception: sometimes we are placed there). How do we escape even if we are not the cause?
The only thing anyone needs to do in order to escape hell is to love God*, his creation, each other and have faith(be positive).
We are to understand that there is one God and that God created all things -- that is it. We play with fire when we claim to love God, but not all his creation.
If you hate your neighbor, you hate God and you have arrived in hell.
*My definition of what God is an 'all is one' belief. God is all and in all. God manifests itself in every created thing. You are a manifestation of God, as well as your dog, you cat a pine tree and a blade of grass. The spirit of God is omnipresent. All is in one, and one is in all. Of course your version of God may differ.
