This is what free will looks like to an atheist - Worship "god" forever, or burn in hell forever - your choice, I give you "free will" - so go ahead and choose. "Luke 12:5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him." The question is - WOULD YOU LOVE A MAN THAT GAVE YOU THE CHOICE OF MARRING HIM OR ELSE HE WOULD SET YOU ON FIRE? Answers and comments that do not answer this question will be deleted.

You are 100% correct! Thank you!
This ties right in with the version of Christianity given to the Native Americans!
A Baha'i who read the Sugar Version of my book said it lacked a spiritual approach. If you do things because God says so, God can make you do anything, incl murder.
But it isn't really a god making you do things, it is the faulty beliefs that religion employs that make you "do things" or not "do things". We really need to rewrite the outdated notion of "gods".
Exactly! If you go back far enough, you"'ll discover who is really dictating these orders. You may not even have to go back very far!
I can answer my own question, after all. I just need to review the history of Native Americans converting to Christianity.
Well, we can never know what is on the other side because no normal human has ever come back to tell the tale, and only one person was rumored to have done so.
It's called the Stockholm syndrome. Isnt it wweird how some people actually fall in love with their captors after having spent some time under their authoritative control? They even defend their actions!
Again, this question is not about religion.
Nope, I dont believe in hell, nor do I believe that a godfather would send his "children" to hell for eternity for breaking his rules, knowing all the while that they would break them.
Leon, does that also apply to those who go out and say slaughter people in a church? Do they just have to genuinely ask for forgiveness and believe/love Jesus and God in order to not go to hell?
And by the way, Leon, the question was "Would you love a man that gave you the choice of marrying him or else he would set you on fire? Why?" It is a logic question and you failed it.
It's a lake of fire not be set on fire. I answered the question but you are so narrow minded that you don't accept other view points. Link yes if they are truly remorseful..
No, the question itself had nothing to do with religion. You failed.
It would be hard for me to love a man
So, your answer to the question that I asked would be 'no' then.
