How pathetic. For you to abandon Christianity. Knowing that God is never going to give you a second chance. True or false?
Your reaction to hellfire and destruction is simply to deny the existence of God, altogether.
To abandon Christianity based on a false premise is a Non sequitur, which is completely utterly false.
True or false?

We are all equipped with our own brains and we believe what we believe. There is no universal law that says practicing Christianity is going to make things better when we are dead. NO ONE knows what happens after death, and this is a fact.
I think many people need something to believe in.

God will give you many second chances, up until you die, to reconnect with Him and accept His free offer of rescue (salvation). There is enough evidence in nature and history of God's existence and intervention in human lives. And enough opportunities to doubt and disbelieve. History holds the record of fulfilled prophecies that are in the Bible. And Satan wants you to believe that God is like him (Satan) and that Satan is just misunderstood and got a bad rap. The Catholic church discovered that they could control the masses through fear, and thus have made up stories about God being vindictive and arbitrary, stories about an eternally burning place of torment for unbelievers and the unsaved and the wicked. That is not what the Bible says happens to a person when they die. The wicked will be burned up, alright, but not in a place of unending torment. How long do you think it would take for a person to burn up in a volcano? But you must also ask yourself, what do you have to lose for believing? Or not believing? It is appointed for a man to die once, and then the judgment. Whether you want to believe in God or not, does not make Him cease to exist, and you not be accountable for the evil you do. Many people abandon Christianity for awhile, then realize that nothing else makes more sense, and return. If you have a connection with God, you hear that still small voice behind you saying which way to walk, what is best, what not to do. Listen for it.

And why would anyone WANT to believe in a God who punishes people for making the choices that are best for them (and harm no-one) , or following the traditions they were raised with and feel most comfortable with, or using the intelligence they were given -- by causing them to burn in hell for eternity? That's not the loving and listening God *I* was raised with. Or the loving God that Jesus and his followers talked about.
There are hundreds of different religions on this planet. If it was THAT important that everyone believe in the specific flavor of God that you worship, surely God would have made it a little clearer. Pretty unfair, don't you think for God to set humans a test that the great majority are sure to fail ... and then punish them so severely for not passing.

God's motto is, "I'm in a big hurry," which is odd for someone who has all eternity. Karma is patient.

To abandon God after tasting the sweetness of Jesus is not good. But there is another chance if we come back to him with real repentance; eg the prodigal son.
