Why would a loving and caring God throw people into a lake of fire for eternity? Is this biblical?


It would be totally unfair that a God who is described in the Bible to be so loving and caring to throw people into the so called lake of fire for eternity. This would totally go contrary to what the Bible says. If indeed God is just, then punishing people who doesn't obey him for eternity yet they disobeyed him for maybe 50 or 90 years to the maximum is totally unjust. I do not believe that this teaching is from the Bible. Further more the Bible States that the penalty of sin is death. Therefore if one decides not to obey God then they die without hope for resurrection.

    So you believe that people have got a soul that somehow survives death and goes to heaven or hell? If people have this eternal soul then the idea that eternal life is a gift becomes false because it seems everyone will have eternal life.

    You have quite emphasised on the issue that God does not tolorate sin. But I think if God does not tolerate sin those who do not seek forgiveness when they sin could be dead by now.

    Does someone have to tell you specific scripture for you? Why can't you open a bible and read it yourself? It's there.
