so, it seems like you won't do it for just not believing......then why would the loving lord.

Have you asked him?

I’m sure there’s lots of things I wouldn’t do that God would do, and vice versa. But then my knowledge of the universe, justice, mercy, sovereignty and fairness are limited to the human condition, so I’m more inclined to take the piss out of the analogy than argue a serious point.
Amazing Love, How can it be? That you my king would die for me.
Amazing Love, I know it's true. And it's my joy to honour you.

no, right.....so why would the lord do it. you wouldn't even burn your cats if they disobey you a bit or not believing in you.


Are you asking these questions because you really want to learn, or to pull a "GOTCHA!" on the religious?

You might be surprised at how many serious answers there are to your many questions (very good questions, I might add), but if people think that you aren't sincere, they'll treat you with contempt.

Since you already made a topic about that problem, you've done all that you can do. Raising the same concern in multiple threads is a breach of etiquette.

But in the meantime, if you can reply to post #13, I'd appreciate it.

Okay then, I believe you, and so I'll answer the question in your topic title:

According to the bible, the popular interpretation of hell does not exist. Hell is not a place where people are tortured for eternity. Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that "For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten."

The dead know nothing. They cannot feel anything. They cannot be tortured.

Jesus says at John 11:11 says that Lazarus, who was dead, had merely "fallen asleep". At Psalm 146:4, it says that the thoughts of the dead perish. In the bible, death is spoken of as a state of nothingness that is not even experienced.

but would a loving lord really put his children to that state just for not believing in him. i mean those children of his can be good in all their lives, too, but just fail to believe in him for some uncertainty in him. so, just put them to that state simply for just not believing in him seems hard to believe what a loving lord would do.
