That, I think, is where sober and respectful discussion should come in. All mockery serves to do is draw a line between "us" and "them" and cause people to cling tighter to their dogma.

Also, a nitpick: the word is "tenets", not "tenants."


ETA:
In fact, this could be yet another reason why the OP is important. The knowledge that hell as a definitive concept didn't originally exist in the Bible might sway some believers to adopt a more "positive" form of Christianity.
