Assuming there is a Christian God, and assuming he was a truly loving god, would He really allow somebody to suffer ETERNALLY in Hell (or just in a state of “not being with God”)? Surely He would eventually welcome them into Heaven, because He wouldn’t allow them to suffer for eternity.
I can understand purgatory, for the most part… you go to purgatory for a certain number of years (5, 10,000, a million, I dunno how that works) and the go on to Heaven to be with God… I don’t have a problem with that, and can accept it.
But would anybody ever really suffer for all eternity, or would they eventually go to Heaven, even if that person didn’t believe in God in the first place?
If they do suffer for all eternity, then how can God be a truly loving God?
