    God is a just judge, and He will punish sin. He wants no one to go to hell. He hates it that people go there, and His heart weeps for people that do. People send themselves to hell when they refuse to take the instructions for how to stay out of hell. They refuse to turn from sin. And they reject God's gift to them in the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for them. Jesus went through unspeakable agony to win the human race back to Him by what He did on the cross. Please stay away from hell. Get saved today if you haven't. You will not regret the decision to follow Jesus. Hope to see you in heaven some day!

    I don't see it as punishment but just not getting admitted to Heaven.

    he's no longer punishing absolutely everyone constantly. he's purely going to wreck people who don't think. meaning they won't in any respect have the wish of coming returned to existence. 2 Thess a million:8,9. eternal destruction potential they are going to easily be long gone constantly. never coming returned or being resurrected. God dosnt torture people in some hell. What for? Rom 6:23 demise is our punishment for sin. Why could we'd desire to be punished further? He even hated for people to burn there little infants in hearth. He mentioned something like that hadn't even arise into his heart. Plus while we die we are ethical sense of no longer something in any respect. Ecclesiates 9:5. in case your recommendations dies you may no longer function, think of, sense, or something. So how could u additionally be attentive to you burning? purely like while people get cremated. They dont be attentive to, theyre ineffective. Ecclesiates 9:10.

    That's because God does not like it when people disobey His rules. He will even be angry if people do not repent for what they did. God made rules to be followed, not to be broken.
