I do read my Bible
No you don't. You have read dribs and drabs. You didn't even know that the bible says to stone disobedient children. You shouldn't lie like that, about the bible. Isn't God supposed to know if you do that?
" and my boyfriend would NEVER tell me that. If he did wouldn'[t have a boyfriend, but you don't compare Jesus to a boyfriend. "
That's called "moral subjectivism," Leah. That means wishy-washy morals. If you want to convince me that your morality is real and has any substance, your rules must apply to EVERYBODY. But they don't apply to God here. You'd break up with any man who said that, and that's good. But that's what god says, LEah, and you worship him for it. So if it's a good thing to say, either EVERYONE should say it, or you should break up with God. You can't be moral if you don't.
"And, Jesus died for us so that we all wouldn't go to Hell and if He didn't we all would pay for our sins. "
Why then did God make a rule so that people should go to hell for -- Adam and Eve's-- sins? Tell me why people who don't believe in God should be tortured forvere, Leah? I'm waiting.
So, when He died it gave us an option, and you aren't choosing the right one. He doesn't want to you to burn forever but He gave you the choice because He cares SO much.
Your fictional character made this hell, and he made the rule. If he cared so much, he wouldn't send people who don't believe in him there, people like little jewish and hindu children. People like rabbis and doctors who save people from cancer, people with mothers and babies and people who do really good thing, but were born in a different country that doesn't believe in Jesus. And God made a rule and he made a hell, according to your fantasy story. So again. WHY?
"He could have not cared and just let us all burn in Hell. So there is the answer to your two questions."
That is certainly an answer I would give an F to. But I'll give you another chance, Leah. Why does God have to have people tortured forever for not believing in him?
