    Have been told by a number of people why they need GOD. My question, why does GOD need us to be good so we can go to Heaven, other than the lame reason of love, because if he loves us he would not willingly send anyone to Hell.

    Let us say the reason is love from GOD. Well, how many people can GOD really love? If GOD is only willing to let in people that returns the love and love him in returns. To me, it looks like GOD is insecure about himself and this is the reason GOD has Hell.

    Why does God need us to worship him?

    And the bible says he is a jealous god.

    He must be an insecure GOD if he wants us to be with him. GOD must have a mental illness if he really is a GOD.

    Hell doesn't exist. At least not the fire and brimstone one.

    God turned Earth over to Satan so that he could attempt to prove a point. The point being that man and Satan could run man's affairs without God and that man did not need God.

    SO if Hell is the realm ruled by Satan then that is EARTH right now.

    Satan will be cast out when Jesus returns leading the Army. He and any willing followers will be permanently put to death. Those that believed and accepted God will be given everlasting life. And will live on a restored Earth. Only 144000 will ascend to Heaven. Everyone else will reside on Earth.

    That is one intrepretation of the end as depicted in the bible.
    There are many just among Christians.
