Would an omnipotent God need to create a hell?
1 often capitalized : almighty 1
2 : having virtually unlimited authority or influence
A loving God, with unlimited influence, at judgment time, would have no trouble influencing a soul to believe and repent.
That would make the following quote true.
2 Peter 3:9 KJ
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
If God is somehow not able to change the attitude or ideas of the soul, the reason for punishment, then to send it to eternal torture or death would serve no purpose and that would mean that punishment would be immoral and no moral God would ever do so.
For those who believe in everlasting punishment or death for souls, I would ask.
What does an omnipotent God need with a hell?
God would cure all afflicted and never lose what could only be perfect as everything has emanated from a perfect God. If the Christian God exists that is.
He is the Rock, his work is perfect:
It's almost as if it was written by men in an effort to control other people.
'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels' (Matthew 25:41).
*Emph. added by me.
You show that your God is an immoral loser who cannot do his own will and will take the moral low grown of killing instead of the moral high ground of curing.
As above so below.
Is that what you would do given God's power? Would you take his satanic actions and kill instead of cure?
If so, get thee behind me Satan.
The Sheep and the Goats. Basically if we help the least among us we get eternal life, if we do not we get eternal punishment. No belief in God required.
The irony is that while he asks us to help the least of us, he doesn't do the same, instead he sentences them to eternal punishment.

I typically prefer to deal in quantifiable subjects, but this is a thought that resurfaced in my mind recently and was one of the first thoughts that led to my de-conversion from Christianity some years ago.So, how does the idea of hell fit into the supposition that God is, by definition (since God...

If "No," would you do it if you knew that you would be resurrected three days later?
