"Such a good Christian response." - PSUengineer
I suspicion that is how the verses about going to hell got into the New Testament. People got tired of arguing about whether Jesus really "rose from the dead" after three days and they got angry but instead of just saying "go to hell" they added verses that say "if you don't believe me you're going to hell." It's the saying the same thing. Some monk or scribe that copied down the text was tired of the constant arguing - where someone would say "that's not possible! No one can live after being crucified," and eventually, after constant battling and bickering the monk or scribe essentially just said "Go to Hell!"
And that is how the verses about hell got into the Bible.
