I'm an economist by trade, and thought I would try my hand at describing an simple economic analysis of religious decision-making... Now let's assume that there are only two possible religious choices in the world: Christianity and Atheism... So take infinite blessings and subtract, say 70 years of pain and suffering for being a Christian while on Earth, and the result is still infinity. If you're an atheist, assume 70 years of pure pleasure and no costs whatsoever, and the result is still 0. If you're an atheist, and this economic analysis hasn't convinced you, then you have just shown that many people don't make rational decisions when it comes to accepting or rejecting Jesus Christ.Now, assume you're God, and a person has refused to believe in you and refusing to accept Jesus Christ, despite such clear and convincing evidence. What might be a logical punishment for such a person?
