    If God loves us unconditionally, why does he kill us instead of curing us?

    Jesus, Yahweh to some, said he came to serve us and not to have us serve him. That is what I describe as unconditional love.

    Yahweh, on the other hand, seems to put a condition of us serving him on his love. If we do not love Yahweh, off to hell we go.

    I call that a condition to his love, which is negated when he tortures us in hell, then kills us in hell’s second death.

    This appears to be a huge contradiction in the Christian ideology.

    Is Yahweh’s love unconditional to you, or is our having to love him back and serve him a condition?

    Am I bound for hell because I cannot love or serve a genocidal demiurge like Jesus or Yahweh?

    Is Jesus showing unconditional love for us when he kills us instead of curing us?

    It's not God who is killing us.

    It's Republicans claiming to do God's work.

    God is love.

    As such, God gave us free will, which allows us to accept his perfect will or reject his perfect will and follow our own selfish will.

    God gave us that choice because forced love is rape.

    Unfortunately, when God gave Adam & Eve that choice, they used it to sin. Through that sin, they ushered decay, disease and deterioration into the world.

    For that reason, God removed the Tree of Life from the garden of Eden, so people would not live forever in an ever diseased and decayed condition.

    God moved the Tree of Life to heaven where he resides and sent himself to live a perfect life and then die on the cross as a substitutional sacrifice for our sins and redeem us.

    This is free gift to any who are willing to accept it.The reward is going to heaven to live with him.

    How could such a loving God force those who have rejected him their entire life to accept his gift of salvation and live with him in heaven?

    Hell is not God's torture chamber. It's the only place that lacks God's presence. Since God is love and light, without God's presence Hell is a pretty unpleasant place.
