I just donít understand why a large number of Christians want to believe in the immortality of the soul and that the fate of the unsaved is to spend eternity in conscious torment when there is no clear scripture to support either of those beliefs. I donít understand why they try to read into scripture something that makes the loving supreme being of the Bible into a heartless monster. I simply do not understand what there is that makes them want to do that when there is no need to. Why do they want to believe that a loving supreme being will horribly torture a person for eternity because during their fleeting few years of life they didnít satisfy certain requirements? I just donít understand why they wouldnít rather believe that a loving supreme being will wipe the person mercifully out of existence because for some reason they didnít or couldnít meet these requirements and didnít develop or have the potential to develop the right character needed to spend eternity with this supreme being.
