Why will God torture those who don't beleive in or follow him ?

Just let them die and be non-existent, no need to torture. If he thinks this is justice he is a retarded jerk, that's why most dont beleive in all this nonsense. 

Many people dont even have the opportunity to know the bible, the holy word or whatever, will god torture them as well? What about babies who die within couple weeks of life, will they be convicted to hell too?

    According to James 1:13 it shows that with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.

    He won't. He punishes us only for our sins. He has prepared a way that we can escape such punishment because of his overwhelming love for us, too.

    If you're any sort of a parent at all, you punish your children when they need it.

    Hell is never forever, by the way. Rev. 20:12-14 shows that death and hell must both be emptied and destroyed so that the resurrections and final judgment can take place. There is only finite punishment for finite sin. God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact, and he is no jerk, much less a retarded one. Think again, if you are able.

    All of God's human children, past, present, and future, will have a fair chance to hear the gospel of Christ (1 Pet. 3:18-20; 4:6) and benefit from it (1 Cor. 15:29). Again, God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact. You really didn't think this through, pard, or at least you need to find some better informed Christians.

      Any parent who locked their kids in a dungeon and tortured them would be jailed and lose custody.

      Eternal torture is not discipline.

    God doesn't torture anyone. He offers every human being eternal happiness with Him in Heaven, and clearly tells us the way to get there. If some people freely choose to reject Him and His offer, then whatever they experience as a result is their own choice. And no, innocent children who have never sinned obviously are accepted into Heaven.

      The Bible teaches that God is love. He will not torture people.

    The Bible does not teach the religious lies of immortal soul and eternal torment in a fiery hell.

    The choice God gives us is between LIFE or DEATH. And 'death' does NOT mean LIFE somewhere really awful. John 3:16 tells us, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." SHOULD NOT PERISH. Meaning... you WILL PERISH as in 'eventually exist no more' IF you do not believe. Jude 7 tells us, "Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Is that FIRE still burning? NO. It is not. Now becoming 'no more' will not be a pleasant experience for the ungodly - and even less pleasant for those with many unforgiven sins. But all will eventually be gone." Malachi 4.1 puts it this way. "For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch." As for what will happen to those who never had the opportunity to know the bible and those to young to reason their way through it - I think it's VERY important to note what the bible tells us of God. We are told that GOD IS LOVE. And that He is FAIR and JUST. Even WE know that it would not be fair OR just to punish a baby in any way or someone who never had the chance to make up his or her mind. God is NOT nearly as awful as some Christians make Him out to be. NEVER FORGET THAT.

      The 'thumbs down' are coming from atheists and those 'awful Christians' I was talking about.

    God does not torture, God will lock you out of His kingdom because you rejected Him. And, outside of God's kingdom one will be in outer darkness.

    We deserve death, but Jesus paid the price to redeem us. God's desire to show us mercy cannot override the need for justice to be done.

    If you show contempt for God's grace and scorn the gift of eternal life, there is no sacrifice left for you.

    Please listen carefully (your life is at stake):

    By law, if a guilty party who is sentenced to death, refuses a pardon by an authority willing to give it; the court has no power to force the pardon on the person. 

    That’s why people must LET God forgive them. 

    God provided an atoning sacrifice: and He suffered greatly to give it. 

    Can you imagine sacrificing your own innocent child so some criminal could walk away scott free? 

    If they don’t take the offer, that means Jesus was tortured in their place for nothing, and the Lord has no recourse to help them. 

    If my Lord, whom I serve and adore, was brutally murdered in their place - and they CHOOSE to reject this gift - they will deserve what they get. No one will be complaining about how unfair it is.

    PS. I really don't care if you don't like the message: it's my sacred responsibility to tell it to you.  If you choose to reject God in this life, He gives you your wish in the next: an eternity without Him.

    Even more offensive is the idea that God chooses who will believe in him and draws them to him while dooming everyone else to eternal torture.
