I was out to eat the other day and in the restaurant, where one can take more sauces, there was a pile of dvd'd that people can take for free with the Tikkun Habrit movie on it. I ended up watching the whole movie on Youtube out of curiosity and was pretty shocked by the content in terms of the punishment one receives.
He was saying things such as you receive Gehinnom for this no matter how young you are when you commit the sin, and the Hell lasts forever (or at least definitely longer than the 12 months that seems to be the common agreement among orthodox judaism).
On top of that in other videos, such as the one labeled GEHINNOM The Movie, he talks about the endless torture and gruesome punishment that await for us which doesn't seem very much in touch with the Hashem I learned about growing up (this version seems far more bloodthirsty and much less forgiving kaviyochel).
He takes people explaining Gehinnom differently as heretics, such as Rabbi Manis Friedman, whom I always enjoyed. When I reached that part I immediately stopped watching because this all seemed completely wrong to me. Does anyone know about him and his authenticity in what he says?
I only ask this because I want to make sure I am listening to the right sources of information.
DISCLAIMER: I also want to add that if the reality is that the punishment is worse than I originally thought, I don't necesarily have a problem with that in a religious sense (although I may not like it for selfish reasons, the truth is the truth).
