...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.
My understanding of reality is contingent...on reality.

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.
If only I could relieve my hunger by vigorously rubbing my belly...

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.
A mighty hand, an outstretched arm - You are the God who saves, Deliverer Your name.

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