How can we call God merciful if hell is real?


It has been estimated that there have been about 160 billion people who have lived and died from Adam until the present. It has also been estimated that only about 5 billion of these people have been believers in Jesus Christ. If God starts out with 160 billion people and loses 155 billion of them to eternal torture who He knew before time their destiny, how can we say that God is victorious and merciful?

    Why was this considered the best answer? Hard to follow and doesn't make a lot of sense. It really sounds like you don't know a lot about what you're talking about, making rash statements like that.

    Sorry Cynt, I just accidently deleted my answer. Let me ask you this. God who commands us to love, forgive and bless our enemies, but is incapable of doing the same to His? It sounds like double standards.

    I disagree that there are 2 God. Our human qualities were bestowed on us from God (my opinion). Interesting answer though!
