After we are made, he tells us we can do whatever we want and can choose to follow his rules or ignore them. He created man imperfect and he knew in advance what choices people would do. Punishing them for their imperfections is really just punishing men for his own shortcomings. Hell cannot be necessary. By definition an all powerful being has no need for a mean to an end. If God would want the ‘Tis but a scratch Monty Python shirt so you should to go to store and get this should to be saved they would be so instantly, no suffering necessary. Why a sadist? He choose the price and punishment for sin. In fact, he decided what is sinful in the first place and created mankind capable of sin. Being all knowing, at the moment he created us he basically already had in mind the immense suffering that was to come. Did it anyway. Your a little kid, Christmas is coming. You being a kid want a new toy. You would be very disappointed if you got a broken one. If someone breaks in to your house to do harm to your family and you kill them does that mean you should go to hell? One of God’s laws is you shall not kill. And as we all know the law is open for interpretation and god does know everything so he would know that you where going to kill . Did he condemn you to hell before you where born? He knows all so would that make him an accessory? I think hell is where the “broken toys” go before they can be fix to move on. The fire and brimstone that you here about it is just a way to point out you need to do your best so you don’t go there. People worrie to much , about getting sick, bills, all the thing in the world and really don’t live. God created hell for the devil and the angels that followed him. We all have free will. You can choose to obey God and spend eternity with Him in heaven or you can choose to disobey him and spend eternity in the hell he created for the devil and the angels that chose to follow him. You are the one that decided to be good or evil. You are the one who decides to lie, cheat, steal or kill. Not to put too fine a point on it. When you plan your vacation you decide where you are going. It’s your choice.
