What good would be done for God if he tortured someone in Hell for all time to come?
What good would be done for God if he tortured someone in Hell for all time to come? What benefit would he derive?
Would he get pleasure out of hearing them shriek in agony for all time to come? Could God shut them out of his knowledge?
Could he really block out their sounds and separate them away from his presence?
What lesson would be learned by the one in Hell?
Imagine he is there not for one lifetime or a hundred lifetimes but for ALL time to come. Do you think by then he would have gotten the message?
Is God really that cruel and vindictive? What kind of a God do we serve? Is he hell-bent on torturing us forever with no real gain to anyone?
What’s the point in doing that?
Hell, as a place of eternal conscious torment, serves NO PURPOSE! He has NO PLEASURE in the death of the wicked.
As it is written in Ezekiel 33:11-12 ‘Say unto them, As I live, says the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn, turn from your evil ways; for why will you die, O house of Israel?
12 Therefore, you son of man, say unto the children of your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sins.'
God wants all men everywhere to repent and turn to him so they can be reconciled together again. No good would come of God, to God or for God by torturing someone for all time to come.
So why would God do this? Why would God want this? Maybe a better question is: ‘Why would God tolerate this?’
He doesn’t even want their deaths, let alone their eternal conscious torment. Let us not read into scripture the notions of prejudiced and jaundiced humans which God never authorized nor ordained to say such things that he never said.
