No one chooses to burn for all eternity in a lake of fire - seriously, you sound psychotic. If your god is real and hell is real then it is, in fact, your god that consigns people to eternal suffering.
Your god = evil.
My friend, God has done everything He possibly can to keep you out of Hell and still leave you as a person with free will and not just a robot, for across the road to Hell he has placed the cross of Christ.

But forget not that anyone can be saved, all you have to do is except Him into your Heart. Hell was not created for us, Hell was created for Satan and his Demons. But the Devil tricks us into ignoring God and by doing this causes us to go down with him. I say to you my friend DO NOT BE FOOLED. You are no fool so do not be fooled by him. The Devil messed up what he had and now he wants to take down as many people with him as he can. DO NOT BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. For this is why we Pray and this is why we Love.

And I see that you remain an unrepentant thief of other people's work, let's see if you are still pathologically lying about it.

And you wonder why I call you an unrepentant thief and a pathological liar? You have no faith, just a really bad collage of thoughts you have ripped off because you thought they sounded good. Calling us your friend is just as vacuous as 'your' supposed thoughts on the nature of God.

You enjoy scriptural lessons, well ripping them off anyways. If you actually do own a Bible, try Matthew 7:15-23 on for size. Your Jesus, wise fellow, He warned us about people like you.

You are incorrect - there is one more thing your god could do to keep people out of hell AND keep free will intact:

God could eliminate hell.

There are no sections of the Bible that say anything of the sort.
The ONLY scripture that your type likes to use is not a definition of marriage, but Jesus' proclamation of when Divorce is allowed.
And Christians today completely ignore that when they divorce in such large numbers, so how can any of them have the nerve to twist it into something against gay folks?
And while Jesus was discussing divorce he defined marriage. Its right there in black and white. The reason the Bible never comes out and says "men can't marry men" is because the whole idea is preposterous. It doesn't say "men can't marry cows" either.

Its just not what marriage is.

It's right next to the passage that says men can't marry animals. Oh wait...it doesn't say that directly. You and your dog are safe but it does say you can't have sex (Lev 18:23). Kind of spoils the honeymoon...eh?

You don't think much of marriage comparing it to bestiality.

What a pity your mind is so small.

Leviticus still applies? I hope you don't wear polyester.
Please fill free to add into the bible all those things god 'forgot' to say.

God consigns no one to eternal suffering. He provides an opportunity to spend eternity in the paradise of the New Jerusalem. If you do not seek your salvation you won't be burned forever in a sea of fire. You simply won't exist in the paradise the saved will share with Jesus.

It Buy-bull says both the man and the dog would have to be put to death.

absolutely nothing. People are just using religion as an excuse to escape reality.
gay marriage, marriage, its the same thing. As long as you love one another, you should have the right to publicly be known as a "married couple"
These homophobic retards are just scared of the fact of gays being happy.
To gay marriage, youve got my support.

Hmmm...I guess that makes it pretty clear how God feels about the matter.

That's how god used to feel about the matter. Or don't you believe that Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament?
And we're still waiting for you to explain why your religious beliefs should control the lives of other Americans who don't share your religious beliefs.

My friend, If God does so, then where would he put the Devil, his demons and the people who never repent for there sins? They surly can not enter Heaven, so what would God do with all the evil?

My friend, It is there choice weather to belive or not. God does not want people to be forced to Love Him, if so, He wouldent have given us freewill. Now what I tell you is Truth from out of the Bible, if a person does not open the door to their Heart to Jesus, they will forever be in the flames of Hell.
But think of what you gain if you Love Christ as He does you. You get to go to Heaven with the Father, and be FOREVER in Peace, Confort and Love. There is no pain in Heaven, no crying, no jealousy, no hurt, no sin and nothing that brings such wrong. There in Heaven, you will know peace, joy and love... Daughter of God.
