Of course every religion and ideology can be used to create and to destroy. Even benign religion can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of ruthless people, this is why we have terrorist attacks.

Some cults are, however by their nature more dangerous than others, for example, apocaliptic sects that encourage their followers to commit suicide.

Judgement day is 4 days after my birthday? Pfft, then I'm having one hell of a birthday party. Groucho Marx made the best toast possible for that kind of situation..."Here's to hell. May the stay there be as fun as the way there."

Quite so. Some religions, sects, and cults, by virtue of their teachings, their organizational structure, or both, are either more likely to attract buggo people, or are more likely to encourage (or just fail to discourage) buggo behavior.

This has always confused me. If this guy was born on 7 BC, and he lived for 33 years, then should 26 AD be his exact year of death?

Sounds like to me this "end of the world tribulation" is because he is killing those who do not worship and obey him.

This leaves one simple yet crucial point; whatever this "God" is and by whatever name it has, it lacks the ability to give itself value. I guess the writers didn't think of that.

I'm not sure, I think this is because later the day of His birth was counted as a year 0.

The torment in flames is figurative. Mind, it was written by Christians, for whom eternal hell is simply life without God. It is not a punishment but a free choice. Only to the right or to the left can the path be taken, none to the centre. I've read it somewhere, a very wise sentence.

I've been confused on the Christian view of Hell. From where I live they shout that Hell is eternal unending punishment. Your saying that all Hell is, is life without God?

For sure. Punishment is a very subjective thing.

There's no precise chronology regarding Jesus's birth or death.

There is no precision to Jesus in general. Nope.

There's really no empirical evidence regarding Jesus. Period.
