And you have free will to hate and reject God. But realise this... you are headed for the lake of fire for rejecting Jesus.

Which rules are burdensome? Thou shalt not kill? Thou shalt not commit adultery? Thou shalt not steal? That you stand by your vows? That you not lie?

God's rules are designed to help us live peaceful lives. They aren't rules for the sake of having rules. They are good rules to live by.

So you choose man...God loves you anyway. And he loves me even when I break the rules. We are all flawed. The amazing thing is he loves us anyway.

Why divorce when you can just flog her in public?

You should be scared because just before you are thrown into the lake of fire, you will be terrified.

As a kid I was probably scared of "the monster" under the bed, or in the closet, but I got over my fear of non-existent entities a long long time ago.

And for what, how Moderator cut: deleted is your belief system that a person that lives a good life, harms no one, helps many, should be tortured forever because they chose not to feed the Moderator cut: deleted some deity. Dude, that is some serious hatred, I want nothing to do with any deity that condones or practices such vindictive irrational hatred.

But thanks for vivid example of my previous statement

Are you 100% certain that a time will not come where all those who rejected Jesus will be thrown into a lake of fire?

Yep

But would you answer my other questions, I'm curious, be it a morbid curiosity, how can you possibly justify that in your mind?

Asheville for an atheist or whatever you have been labelled with you are alright in my book.

But i do disagree with you that the living God is some deity who is a megalomaniac.

I kind of understand why you may believe this has His character and nature as been mis represented by the teachings of fundamental christianity
