    I'm talking about the narratives of the life, preaching and actions of the character referred to as "Jesus Christ" and who anyone properly called a Christian hangs their hat on as representing salvation as a cosmic explanation. The comments make this man out to be a standard bearer for morality and peace and goodness etc. etc...  

    This character, according to these gospels, not only believed in the concept of hell, but endorsed it and threatened it.  

    Now how can someone portray him as a representative of ultimate morality, when, in my view, eternal torture or even the threat of it is very immoral?
