The idea of an eternal hell stems largely from the mistranslation of the Greek word aion, which actually means ''age,'' as in a defined span of time, such as the Iron Age. If there is any spiritual destination of pain and suffering (and this remains doubtful), it is at most a temporary place of learning and expiation of one's ill deeds, where one may become purified, gain wisdom, and repent (rethink) for the acts of life--overcoming the false perception of separation from God and becoming one with God and man. Eventually everyone is paroled. Why is this idea so unpalatable to many Christians? I believe it is because of the hateful need for superiority and separation that the current faith has cultivated in many of its flock. It also proceeds from an image of God as being angry, hostile, unforgiving, not to mention prejudicial and bigoted.
