It is only the fearful determined hell wishers that see it as a trap, not the universalists or those with an open mind and heart. A real loving father would not cast his chrildren in a burning furnose for being bad.
You need to stop viewing God as human. "if this, then that" is totally inappropriate when speaking of a deity. If God is not omnipotent then He is not God. I think we all get your point in human logic, just do not transfer it to God.
It is not God that I am viewing, it is the stupid belief that God created hell that I argue. So if your son is a nonbeliever and he dies before you. Are you still content in worshiping this image of God you have made Him (Dan3:1-6).
Of course it is man that creates hell. Neither I nor my son will Know hell. We choose not to create it for ourselves. That is our choice. We do not believe God casts us there. We believe we are free to choose it. A hardened heart would be a bummer.
So much for Christ drawing all men to Him. No wait, so much for turning the other cheek. The word hell is not written in the original Greek or Hebrew scriptures. It was added in by the church.
@Sword, you say word "hell" given to us by church. That may be true, but the lake of fire is scripture and likely figurative, but very real. Ego is separateness from God and from each other. Ego is the door to hell.
Lonestar777, what does the Greek word Basanos and the Lake of Fire (LoF) have in common?

Mercy is what Glorifies God the most. But when a deity knowingly creates a man knowing fulwell his destiny as a eternal loser. He becomes a monster who is not capable of showing true mercy. Afterall. Christ desires mercy, does He not?
