[Replying to 'a loving god wouldn't condemn its children to eternal torture']
That's not grasping the full picture and not understand what pure love is.

I'm not a spambot
You're saying that pure love is condemning people to eternal torture...
Nope, I'm not grasping it.

It's funny how fundies will cling to atrocities and try to defend them at all costs.

Hmmm, dance track from 15 years ago by Crystal Waters
Back to the middle and around again. 100% - pure love!
Nope I'm not seeing it either, apart from the circular logic. I want to believe God is nice, therefore God is nice. The evidence shows otherwise. Obviously I need to redefine nice.

Is it perpetually torturing everyone who doesn't believe in you?

Don’t see nothin’ about eternal torture. Indeed, “not easily angered,” “no record of wrongs,” “does not delight in evil,” and “always protects,” all pretty well speak against the whole eternal torture thing.

If you love something, set it free.
If it comes back to you, it is yours.
If it doesn't, it was never yours.
But if you still love it,
I mean really,
send it to hell and torture it,
And don't forget; call the
