Does God have any control over hell?

heaven and hell

Speaker:

In the Middle Ages, the idea of heaven and hell played a big role. While heavenly joys awaited the pious after death, the wicked faced hell. The medieval church played an important role in this worldview. It was the gateway to a godly life and thus to the prospect of going to heaven. If the believer refused to adhere to their rules, he was assured of eternal agony. The clergy tried to influence the people through glaring descriptions of the underworld. Especially the dying were shown once more the torture of hell in all liveliness. The priests did them hell hot.

Speaker:

Fortunately, today the clergy no longer scare us with gruesome descriptions of Hell, but many expressions about it heaven and hell have survived to this day and people, the others make hell hot, are still there, as I found out in my survey.

Quotes:

"If I make someone hell hot want, then for me that means really putting someone under pressure to do something they haven't done yet. / When you are put under time pressure on something to do something urgently, so that you work up a sweat, and then you feel as if you were in hell, where you are being fried. Certainly occurs. / I do self someone gladly hell hot./ I'll keep making him ... I'll piss him off until he's right gets angry and freaks out and that ... then maybe doing what I want. "

Speaker:

Just like the medieval clergyman once did, so too today some people violently attack others, they do Others hell hot. It's not quite as terrifying as it was in the Middle Ages, but it can still be very uncomfortable. The last lady interviewed has made the experience that people sometimes correct become angry and freak outwhen hell is made hot for them.

Speaker:

The expression become angry alludes to foods that are high in acid. Someone, who angry makes a face as if he had just bitten into a sour apple, for example. So he's angry and annoyed. Someone, who freaks out, on the other hand, is really angry and loses control of himself in his anger. With the Freak out originally meant a technical process, namely an object that is released from its holder, such as a gearshift lever. How this loses all hold when he freaks out, so a person who loses freaks out his composure. He'll likely scream out loud and say and do things he'll feel sorry for afterward.

Speaker:

But the prospect of someone else freaking out because it annoys them too much doesn't seem to bother the interviewed lady very much. She is a real one Devil roast, a capricious nature, which can be quite annoying to its fellow human beings. And while we're at the roast: You have to be careful not to use this kind of food after all comes into hell's kitchen.

Quotes:

"That means getting into some kind of situation where I don't really know what to do with. / There are a lot of opportunities for me from my job, in the devil's kitchen to come. If, for example, as a carpenter I am, I choose wood incorrectly; the whole furniture becomes crooked and crooked; then I can think about beforehand whether maybe I shouldn't work with the wood come to hell's kitchen. / When I lie, when I lie on purpose; the lie flies up, then come over' I definitely do in hell's kitchendepending on how harsh the lie was. "

Speaker:

According to old popular belief, the devil had a kitchen in which the witches and wizards were at work. Devil's Kitchen is synonymous with hell. Today we mean a difficult situation. If the interviewed carpenter has chosen the wrong wood, he will get into trouble because the piece of furniture fails and he cannot do his job. Likewise, someone caught lying can get into a very uncomfortable situation.

Speaker:

In such cases we are sometimes at a loss, like the poor soul who finds itself in hell. We don't know from yet another. It can usually be foreseen that we will behave in a certain way bring to hell's kitchen. For example, if we lie, we must expect that the lie will be discovered and that we will then, in other words blow up. However, some people lie so boldly that everyone believes them. They lie as one might say Hell, come out.

Original sound:

"Something hell come out to do can mean to do something against reason. But because, for example, I mean something put in the head have that it absolutely has to work, I try to do everything to get it through and don't even pay attention to whether it makes sense now, whether it is at all Valves can, but for me it's about somehow achieving something that may not be achievable at all. "

Speaker:

The expression Hell, come out Lies are based on the idea that man can also lure the devil with reprehensible actions. Whoever lies accepts that the devil will gain power over him, because the lie is, so to speak, his area of ​​responsibility. In modern usage, the phrase has also been transferred to other areas of life.

Speaker:

The questioned gentleman sometimes just does not want to give up on a project. He then has the plan, as he says, put in the head and there it sits and doesn't go out again anytime soon. In his zeal, he sometimes doesn't even think about whether what he intends to do can even succeed as planned, whether it - to put it colloquially - at all Valves can.

Speaker:

The verb Valves Onomatopoeic stands for a process that ends with a sound. The sound of the lid being placed on a pot signals, for example, that the lid fits on the pot. Something, that works, is - in other words - successful. It worked. Even as an earth citizen, people of the Middle Ages were always in danger of falling into the hands of the devil. And it happened quickly, because the Lord of Hell was an extremely clairaudient being. According to old popular belief, you only had to say your name and it was there. If speaks of the devil, then he comesis still said today. However, this no longer means the devil. The only thing the person addressed has in common with the Lord of Hell is that they enter a room at the very moment when they are being talked about. The person in question is called by their name, like the devil.

Speaker:

But not only his name, but also his picture could conjure up the devil. Therefore, according to another saying, it is not good to paint the devil on the wall. I was also advised against this in my survey.

Quotes:

"One shouldn't predict the disaster, so one shouldn't the devil beautiful paint on the wallthat it can come. / What foresee, see black into the future. Something that probably doesn't have to happen, but could happen. In any case, something dark. / Somehow anticipating a bad thing or something, or predicting it. Or if you don't think so, let's say something makes it worse than you might think in reality. "

Speaker:

Originally were with the Devil on the wall meant the signs that were painted over the door. Those who painted the signs of the devil over the door instead of the sign of blessing brought the Lord of Hell into their own house. Today the devil stands for disaster. who paints the devil on the wall, conjures up a calamity through reckless talk, of which there are no signs of itself. It may be that the person concerned does not believe in the misfortune at all, but only plays with the thought that it could happen. But it can also be that he is an outright pessimist who sees a storm approaching even when the sky is blue. Such a pessimist sees the future in gloomy colors. He looks black or, as one might say, he unkt. The expression token leads us back to a superstitious idea. After that, the toad, the toad, as well as the owl and owl, heralded a misfortune. Despite all the naysayers is also said when a company has succeeded despite bad predictions.

Speaker:

While hell is thought of as a place of eternal torment in the Middle Ages, heaven is of course the place of bliss, here God is enthroned with his court, the angels, and souls have their peace. Even nowadays, some people still dream of going to heaven.

Music: Max Raabe and orchestra "I'll dance with you into heaven"

"I dance with you in the sky,

in the seventh heaven of the love…"

Speaker:

The idea that heaven is divided into different heavenly spheres was adopted from the Jewish tradition. According to this, God had his seat in the highest and most holy, namely in seventh heaven. To be in seventh heaven is still considered to be absolute bliss today.

Quotes:

"If you get married, then you are in seventh heaven. Or if you have or have won the lottery, you are in seventh heaven. There are several situations where you can in seventh heaven is with happiness or joy. / Of course, I've been around my age a few times in seventh heaven. Yes, and it always had something to do with a man. Or also with the birth of my children, those were heavenly moments too. "

Speaker:

In anticipation of heaven, people have always imagined what it could be like there. And of course these ideas turned out to be very different depending on the century. In late Gothic and Early Renaissance painting, the sky was populated with angels making music. Someone the sky is full of violinsThat's why they say about someone who is overjoyed.

Speaker:

Luck is always a thing. Those who float in seventh heaven can fall deep. But you don't have to be in seventh heaven to be to fall out of the clouds. In other words, someone who is blown away is faced with an unpleasant fact unprepared. We cannot conjure up heavenly moments in our lives, but we can try to achieve what is particularly important to us. For that we sometimes have to Heaven and Earthset in motion.

Quotes:

"Yes, I'm very familiar with that. Well, I'm probably the type of guy who does that. If I want something, then I try to push it through with a lot of energy. So other people too to clampif I can. So yes, to get to my goal. / If I'm on a diet and see a huge piece of cake in the shop window or a steak, that's even better, then I'll do everything to get the steak. I'm changing my calorie table, I say, I'll continue from tomorrow. But I really do everything to get what I want. "

Speaker:

The expression Set heaven and earth in motion originally goes back to the prophets of the Old Testament. They threatened the people of Israel with the fact that the Lord of hosts would set heaven and earth, sea and land in motion if his people continued to break the commandments. In other words, God spared no effort to win over his people.

Speaker:

That meaning has already faded to some extent. As we can see, there are people who bet heaven and earth for a steak. If we really want to achieve something, then - like the God of Israel - we must spare no effort. And this also means that we use the help of others, that we others for our plans clamp.

Speaker:

Clamping originally refers to carriage horses that are harnessed to the wagon. Just as the coachman lets his horses work for him by harnessing them to his wagon, so we can, figuratively speaking, let other people work for us. We can use them for our plans clamp.

Speaker:

Some of us remember God from childhood as the kind old gentleman with the white beard. This picture should represent the dear God, who knows neither severity nor punishment. As an adult, no one believes in God anymore, but some adults still allow themselves from time to time God be a good man.

Original sound:

"To let God be a good man, for me simply means doing something that God may not like, but what I do anyway, for example lazing around for a day; or not worrying about something, which I might still be able to do tomorrow, postponing things until tomorrow, just having a good time. "

Speaker:

who let God be a good man, can live carefree and carefree, because he has no punishment to fear. For example, he can have a nice day instead of working without feeling guilty.
