If you think about it, the covenant given to the Jews- that if they keep all god`s laws, he will reward them with crops, etc.- has an inverse or perverse side.

If you do notkeep his laws- the 600 or so laws of Moses- then the result is equivalent to punishment. But it`s punishment that happens here and now- on earth. So Jews who go wrong get punished immediately. Whereas :) Christians who are no longer required to keep all these laws presumably have to wait for a final judgement for their punishment.

Actually I noticed that in my own life. When I was young and a Christian I never got punished for anything. But once I became a Jew, anytime I did anything wrong, some clamity immediately befell me. Subsequently becoming a Hindu did not help. Maybe it`s just getting older that matters.

Bottom line: If the place where you get punished is hell, then based on the inverse covenant, Earth is Hell.
