What should you say when you ask where we're you born and my friend he said he was born in hell is that true?

just wondering if that really made any sense because I asked him that. today.

No, Apple, that's not true. Maybe he said it because he's not been happy with his life and that's where he feels like he's been most of the time. Don't know. But, more than likely, no matter how hard a time he's had, he can look not too far and see someone who's had it harder than him and he could find a lot of things he's probably taking for granted in life.

"Hell" is a small town in Michigan, about 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor.
It's zip code is 48169.
So, yes, it may be entirely true that your friend was born in Hell.

Only if he carries a pitchfork, has horns & breathes fire while chasing people in his birthday suit. That's the only character i know that comes from hell.

"Life" in general teaches ( experiences, family ties, dreams lost/delayed, opportunities perceived ) define us in the moment. Not necessarily, in the future. Sounds like a friend, needs a friend about now. How about you?

There is a small town in Norway called "Hell". I've been there once and brought my friends "rocks from hell". Apparently hell isn't hot enough to melt stone....

I believe they have a thriving postal service and tourists can send their friends postcards from hell.

I tried unsuccessfully to find this a while ago but I thought it was in Finland.
Report as
Yes, I remember seeing post cards along the lines of "hey we're having a great time in Hell, wish you were here!" There is a small air port there and my family and I flew there to meet my brother and his wife. So of course I "landed in Hell". Then of course I could say "they told me to go to Hell....so I did!" or "I've been to Hell and back" (which in our case we never returned! Rather we "got the Hell outa there! Lol). We could go on and on... As far as Finland goes, some may say "Finland IS Hell"! Idk He he he
On a serious note, I believe there is evidence of the actual state of Hell in this life (as there is of Heaven). I have heard some describe the essence of Hell as the lack of "God's presence" and in an ironic sense an atheist's dream of "no god" come true. The bible is unclear as to exactly "what" Hell is once u recognize some of it's literal imagery (like when Jesus referred to "Gehenna"[Hell] a literal place outside the city that became a refuse dump were there was always a fire burning 24/7 and pagans used to sacrifice people there). Even Heaven is a state of now (according to Jesus). I really don't believe that self proclaimed atheists will by default wind up in Hell. Conversely I believe that one who believes in God will not necessarily float on up to Heaven...likely not all who say they believe really do. I am no judge in this matter, but simply a seeker and invite you and all to join along. :)
Peace & Love

Entertaining stuff, dk. Daizy and I had planned to go to Finland when they sponsored the World Veteran Games in 1991 but by the time they came around she was too ill to travel and I'd killed my knees, but we were planning a side trip to Hell, even if it was in Norway (which I hadn't quite grasped).

I knew about Gehenna but the best description of Hell for me has always been Dante Alighieri's, "All hope abandon..." I think the absence of hope must be sheer torment. The old expression "Where there's life there's hope" is optimistic, but I wonder whether it couldn't equally be expressed, but with a different outcome, "Where there's hope, there's life."
Report as
I didn't realize my "half day" at work would be a full one! Geese
Yes, Dante's hell has had a massive impact on the popular perception of what hell is. I certainly agree regarding hope! In the face of the uncertainties of life we live somewhere within hope and despair. Never been to Finland, but Norway is amazing! Sorry to here u two couldn't make it to those games :(
I would love to go to the next winter olympics in Russia!...doubtful we can pull that off at this point.

Translators have allowed their personal beliefs to color their work instead of being consistent in their rendering of the original-language words. For example: (1) The King James Version rendered she’ohl? as “hell,” “the grave,” and “the pit”; hai?des is therein rendered both “hell” and “grave”; ge?en·na is also translated “hell.” (2) Today’s English Version transliterates hai?des as “Hades” and also renders it as “hell” and “the world of the dead.” But besides rendering “hell” from hai?des it uses that same translation for ge?en·na. (3) The Jerusalem Bible transliterates hai?des six times, but in other passages it translates it as “hell” and as “the underworld.” It also translates ge?en·na as “hell,” as it does hai?des in two instances. Thus the exact meanings of the original-language words have been obscured.

No one is born in hell. Your friend is being silly. With two exceptions every human who has ever walked the earth was born on earth of a human woman.

Your friend is clever. As for the place of torture called "hell", there is no such place anyway. The word translated as "hell" by many Bible translations actually means the common grave of mankind, or the place where we sleep in death. So there's no way he could've been in the grave before being born. He was just messing with your mind.
