What is the Great White Throne Judgement??
Does God take you out of hell just to Judge you and throw you back into hell, makes no sense, might as well leave them in there if you're not even going to give them a chance to begin with

1) What is the Great White Throne Judgement??
More typically and classically entitled "the Final Judgment"
in this event God judges all who have ever lived and consigns those judged to their eternal fate.
2) Does God take you out of hell just to Judge you and throw you back into hell, makes no sense, might as well leave them in there if you're not even going to give them a chance to begin with
No. People reading archaic Bible translations can get that idea, but more modern, scholarly translations use more precise wording and (so) avoid such incorrect conclusions.
It is Hades - the land of the dead - that people are brought out of for judgment, and the irredeemably wicked are judged guilty and consigned to "the lake of fire" where they will suffer eternal torment.
The word used in the Bible is "Hades" - not "hell"
(note: "hell" used to be an acceptable translation of "Hades" given that "hell" at one time was the English word that had as one of its meanings "land of the dead").

It's a metaphor. People will not literally line up at a physical throne. That would take many years.

The Great White Throne Judgment is only for unbelievers. No believers will appear there, because believers are saved. They don't go to judgment.
The unbeliever dies and goes to hell. The unbeliever will get their day in court, where their good vs bad assessment will be made (that's what unbelievers think as to how things "should" work). And at the Great White Throne Judgment, it will be shown that all the good works in the world don't pay for even one sin. So their day in court is a fail, for all of them, and they are all sent to eternal torment in the lake of fire.
So to avoid the Great White Throne Judgment, believe in Jesus in this life. That easy.
Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

I'll try to get this.
But first, please find out about he'll according to scripture.
Revelation 20:11-15 King James Version (KJV)
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
** So this is a separate place.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
***Here all are judged by works***
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Death, hell,the sea give up the dead.
So? Not ALL are in hell, right?
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
**then death and hell are thrown into lake of fire....
Second, FINAL DEATH
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire
We know some ARE found written in the book of life, else why have judgement?
True it requires degrees of punishment.
But not ALL are not found in book of life.
That's how it reads to me. You?
And hell just isn't this burning torture, at least not for all.
Bcuz God is JUST and everyone is dealt with differently.

No, there's no "hell" to take people out of in the first place. We can only speculate what the verses are describing because Revelation is totally symbolism.

Just like any other fixer-upper, all you have to do is
toss a can of white spray paint at an idiot, and they will spray
everything white ... from the cabinets, to the back-splash, to the furnishings.
In this case, the great white throne of judgement = 1-great big raft of crap.
Even the image itself sounds like it was
developed by, and came from, the intellectual dwellings of a sand flea.
