Why did an all-powerful, all-knowing being create an ETERNAL TORTURE CHAMBER and fill it with MOST of his creation? Was that THE PLAN?
If that wasn't the plan....it raises the more worrying question (for theists).. Did God's Plan go wrong?
Why did he create a universe where he had to kill himself to save a tiny portion of it?
What is this ultimate purpose for our existence that theists are always rambling on about in their arguments for an intelligent designer and a benevolent creator?
They say that atheism equates to a purposeless existence. (which is balderdash) What is the Ultimate Purpose' of creating an eternal torture chamber for MOST of your creation? How is it better? How is it not 'infinately worse? What great truths and spiritual wisdom are gleaned from this?
The criteria of salvation is simple... to admit out sinful and worthless nature and to accept the forgiveness and grace of god...... yet that simple salvation is withdrawn to folks who don't make it during this physical lifetime. How come? Why make the universe that way? What ultimate purpose is there in this acceptance? What great spiritual wisdom and truths are gleaned from this? How are these folks that much more worthy of an eternity of peace than those for whatever reason did not or could not do this? The bigger question.. How are these folks that didn't make it worthy of an eternity of torture, suffering and pain?
Why couldn't an all-powerful, all-knowing being have created a universe of rehabilitation where we LEARN from our mistakes, where growth and knowledge didn't stop with the end of our eye-blink of a physical existence but could continue on forever? Why eternally lock the door between heaven and hell to those who didn't make it during such a brief existence on earth?
Whats the ultimate purpose for an eternity of suffering and pain? If the souls in hell can't ever learn or grow whats the ultimate point?
Just a few questions for the christian theist.
