Could you enjoy heaven if you knew...

...that a friend/loved one was being tortured in eternity in hell?

Just a thought.

I obviously know that not all Christians have this view of hell--some don't even think hell exists. So naturally this does not to apply to them. This is purely for those that do.

One of the many problems I have with Christianity. I'm a loyal friend, and I know for a fact that I could not live happily with my close friends and family suffering in the Christian hell. I'd have a big problem with that god.

No, of course not. But thankfully they won't have to worry about that.

From what I understand, you wouldn't know they were burning.

I also wouldn't like a god who isn't letting me know about the condition of my friends.

Presumably you wouldn't know he's doing that either.

I suspect so. The omnipotent God is hellbent (pun intended) on giving me a good time full of joy. I think a significant more amount of revelation will be received in Heaven than on earth. This includes a better understanding of God's righteousness. When a relative on mine dies who I know wasn't saved, I mourn, but I can still understand (to some extent) that they had more of a chance than they deserved.

So the situation just gets crappier and crappier. Now this god is erasing my fond memories?
