So for 70-100 years of unrepented sin God could not condemn one to trillions x trillions x trillions of never ending years of suffering. The blind guides that do not know the true God teach him as that sadist with a literal eternal suffering.
And you'r entitled to believe that. But you need to understand that all religions and all people believe no such thing.

It really makes no sense, and is simply beyond comprehension.
Many people that have experienced Hell on the other side (through NDE's etc), have said that this was just, and the punishment for their sin, whatever that may be, was perfectly justified.
Is this just an extreme case of Stockholm Syndrome?
How could anyone not object to it?
If there is not a universal bridge, or an area of penance and purification, then God is building one hell of a big Hell. (no pun intended)
God is more holy than Stalin, Hitler, etc.

I am bemused that we have seen a string of myths presented and called "Fact" and a mythical beast's doings excused because of this "Holy" (read unquestionable) thing.

And I'm bemused that part of creation is trying to question the creator. Like a lump of clay whining to the potter about being made into something it didn't appreciate.

Its always been 99% being mislead. God only has 1 single religion, so you are correct-99% of them are not his and believe false reasonings.
