If you don't love Jesus, you will burn in hell.<quoted text>
Catholics have similar tales.
If a person was put through a thousand years of this torture, would he come out loving Jesus?
Would he think, "I sinned and paid for it".
Jesus tells us HE paid for our sins in FULL.
He says he will give us new robes of righteousness and forgive us all so we are as white as snow as far as sin goes.
Anyone who has suffered fire for even one minute is much the worse off for it mentally.
What a stupid idea that we come out of Purgatory as sane people.
Burning in hell teaches us how to love each other.
Stupid stuff indeed!
It seems to me that hell is not a sign of a god's mercy.
