"You can't call it a choice when not choosing leads to eternal torture."<quoted text>
"In the end there is God or No God."
Not quite. There are other possibilities.
You can't call it a choice when not choosing leads to eternal torture.
By the way, what you are talking about is locking them in the basement AFTER they've disobeyed. For eternity. With torture. If that DOESN'T seem abusive to you, I find that very odd.
Yes, you can. That is what you pagans can't stand,. Try to think of it in more simple terms. You know if you want a new car you can buy it or steal it. If you steal it you will go to jail(a bad place for most normal people). Knowing that you steal the car and complain you had no real choice because it was not fair that you had to go to jail for stealing the car.
You pagans are angry that God is in control and not you. You have free will and can chose to follow or not.
You have decided to ignore the Word. It is still a choice even if you know you will be condemned to eternal darkness for your choice. If you want eternal life follow the Word.
God is not impressed with your silliness. You are fooling no one.
