Torturing people in eternal hell glorifies God, apparently

Fundy comment of the day:

I can hear Jesus say over and over again: "You err because you do not know the scriptures." Hell is not so hard to figure out. It is not figurative. It is not here on earth. It is not temporary. It is not simply separation from God (certainly the knowing presence of God and the work of His hands is indelibly there for eternity). Modern evangelicals and Christians of many flavors fear man and not God. We use the wisdom of man in a never-ending PR campaign to get the world to finally like us, so in our false and incomplete modern gospel of emphasizing the "love" of God without the justice and reality of what one is being saved from, we diminish the holiness of God, and our Christian culture in music, preaching, teaching, literature, etc, reflects it. When will we realize that the everlasting destruction of Hell actually glorifies God by making His efforts to get our attention through the millinia, especially via the cross and resurrection, as well as other characteristics of His, such as His patience, longsuffering and forbearance in spite of our rebellion, stand out like a diamond against a black velvet cloth?

My first comment in reply to this was comment was deleted. I wonder if this was because I questioned the notion of God being a moral monster with a bad temper... Or if it because I questioned the literal truth of the Bible?

The more I talk to Fundamentalists, the more I realize that they actually do believe God is nothing more than an infinitely unspeakable asshole.

No, friend, God DOES NOT enjoy sending people to the Abyss o'Misery for eternity; in fact, the other way is most appropos: THEY are the ones who choose to go through unbelief and walking-away from Jesus at the General Judgment, not God 'damning' them --- Lissen and learn, child. Gotta whole lotta know. How can I prove to you God exists? I cannot. It takes a special kind of strength and a mo-than-two-bawls in cranium I'm afraid; however, all of U.S. shall find-out soon enough God DOES exist in the Warning from Heaven. Sad how people only 'look-up' when there's something to be seen. C'est la guerre --- The time has come, dude, when we ALL must choose which side we stand on: neutrality isn’t an option, looking good and following the masses like lemmings isn’t an option, either. Choose Right, choose the Light, and win thy fight. the Warning shall come from Heaven sooner-than-you-think. I hope you’re prepared. Meet me in Heaven. God bless you.

Gee, Dr. Kold_Kadavr_flatliner, M.D., you sound exactly like a crazy person.

You believe God burns us all in hell because we choose not to believe in your religion, which you can't prove.

Go fuck yourself.

The Bible does not teach eternal conscious torment

Read all about it

Joe: it's not me you need to convince of that :) I presume you still think a short term burning in hell & annihilation is still a just punishment for not accepting Jesus as your saviour, irrespective of conduct in life?
