I have to ask, where does the Bible teach that Heaven and Hell are the same place. Christ said to the damned, "Depart from me." (Matthew 25:41). This obviously shows that since they are departing from the prescence of Christ, Hell is another location. And where is the evidence that the separation of them is idolatrous? Why isn't combining Heaven and Hell idolatrous? As for the other claims, how does the writer know these things? Where did he get these ideas?Father George Metallinos writes:
Paradise and hell are not two different places. This separation idea is an idolatrous
concept. They instead signify two different situations (ways), which originate from the
same uncreated source, and are perceived by man as two, different experiences. Or,
more precisely, they are the same experience, except that they are perceived differently
by man, depending on man's internal state.
