God didn't create Satan any more than He created Hitler or Dahmer. Satan chose his own path and God chose not to interfere.<quoted text>
There is no excuse for keeping a soul alive for eternity just to make it suffer, and for no better reason that it failed to worship you. I can hardly think of a worse thing to do. Can you?
Are you willing to believe that a creature that does that is infinitely loving?
Why did he build hell? Why did he create Satan or unleash him on earth and mankind? Why did he reward him with dominion over hell and souls to torture?
Why would you trust such a creature to keep its promises?
God has the power to prevent you from Hell, yes. He can do anything He wants. But God can't do anything that would violate His character. Thats why He cant make us love Him,
God cant overlook our sins, and even though He would like to, He cant save atheists who think theyre too smart to believe in Him.
