Yeah I understand but that is exactly what they will get then.
That is what free will is all about. God gives us choices, if we refuse to choose Him, then we get exactly what we choose...........total separation.
Every knee will bend, but those who do not accept His offer, will not get the chance to be with Him. We have that chance now, not after the chance is gone.
Most people when faced with eternal pain or suffering without God will surely decide to choose Him. Meaning that we may live on, but in our worst nightmare life, without God, then we would have no relief in sight.
If they don't believe in God, they won't believe in an eternal burning hell either, right?
I believe that a greater picture is painted of God when He is seen as a loving Father (our \"Daddy\") wanting to share with us His glory as in life eternal, with no pain, no hunger, and always happiness in Him forever.
Some shy away from Him because they don't understand His love for us and His wanting us to be with Him in glory. They think that if He has the authority to do anything He can click His fingers and do it for us. Well, He can but that would not be free will at all.
We need to choose Him, since afterall, He first chose us. :D
