If I had to gamble between eternal torture and eternal pleasure, I'd rather hedge my bet on nothing at all.
This is a topic that other "Christians" will argue against me. But it all fairness to you, there is no "eternal torture" mentioned in the Bible anywhere. That is entirely an invention of Roman Catholicism. The Catholics got most of their ideas from Roman gods and traditions, not from the Bible.
For example, the idea of "Hell" comes from a pagan goddess named "Hel" (one "L"), and she was the goddess of the underworld etc. The Greek word which many will recognize as meaning hell, is "hades", but if you research the word, you will discover that it actually means "the grave". The fact is, the wicked, those who disobey God and reject Him, even to His face when Jesus returns, will be destroyed in a lake of fire, but it will not be eternal torture, it is called the "second death". So if dying and staying dead doesn't bother you, than fear not, that is exactly what is coming to those who reject God. Personally, you seem like a nice guy, even in spite of our differences and I do not wish a fiery destruction on you. I think that when reality hits and you see Jesus some day after you are resurrected from the dead (and you're probably rolling your eyes at me now), you will at that time not want to die a final fiery death, but it may be too late. Also, many of this worlds churches teach about some sort of eternity in heaven, but that is also not taught in the Bible. A big a surprise as that may be. In fact, you can find a verse, John 3:13 where Jesus Himself stated that no man has ever been to heaven. Then when you study prophecies you find out that we don't go to heaven (or hell, hell doesn't exist), we die and we stay dead (just as you probably believe now), but Jesus resurrects the dead. Jesus actually rules right here, on Earth, and the nations still exist.
But, putting all that aside, I think there are some really good reasons to want to be resurrected to eternal life. For one, all the sadness, pain and death and everything negative will be gone. It will be a world unlike any you or I have ever seen. The Bible states that ALL will be restored and made new. So that means dinosaurs will be back, as well as many creatures we probably never knew existed. The nature of animals will be changed so they will no longer be afraid of us and no longer be a danger. The Bible even states that animals like tigers, wolves and even snakes will have their nature changed so they eat grass and not prey upon each other and that snakes will be so tame that they won't hurt a child. So that alone will be something to look forward to, but I also think that we may even venture out into the universe and possibly do some of our own creating, I don't know. I can only speculate. The Bible states that God is preparing something for us that we cannot even imagine right now.
I know this seems so far fetched, you're probably in tears laughing at me, but I really wish you would consider it as possibly true. Honestly give the idea of a Creator a chance, TRY prayer, in private so nobody knows, just to see... what harm could it do? I think if you examine God's laws you will see that if everyone kept them, it would be a MUCH better world. Heck, if just ONE of God's laws were kept universally it would be an immensely better world. But there are personal benefits to obeying them.
I don't know, not trying to preach to you, but just trying to get you to see reason. I know you don't believe me, but I was healed, several times. Type 2 diabetes, gone, I had a bad leg infection, gone, occular migraines, gone. I could give a lengthy list of things I have prayed for. Heck, my wife whom I will be married to for 33 years as of February 8th was a result of prayer! She said no to me when I asked her to marry me, so I prayed about her, I didn't want to lose her as a friend. Then suddenly, a couple months later, she came back to me and changed her mind. The first place we moved into had a brand new Bible sitting in it, almost like a sign. Again... I know you don't believe me, maybe ou think I am lying, I am not. But... there are benefits and believe it or not, you WILL want to enjoy the coming kingdom of God, which is not on a cloud in the sky, but here, on Earth, with nations that exist now. And God is NOT unmerciful an cruel, he does NOT burn people forever in some sort of "hell"; I can't stand that doctrine, it makes God out to be vicious and cruel, I wouldn't want to believe in Him either if He was that way, but He is not.
Anyhow... I didn't want to continue on in here, but I also can't just brush you off like that either when I genuinely care about your well being and the road you are on. Even if you don't see it yourself. The truth will someday hit home and I hope you don't wait until you are facing a fiery destruction. Because forever dead, is a very long time. To me, being wiped out of existence is frightening to contemplate, but an eternity in a better world with God only knows what to do... we will have an entire universe, who knows. Could be God's version of Minecraft with our own worlds for all I know. Put computer games to shame! I personally can't wait.
Ah well... rambling on again, but I really wish I had a way to explain the truth better to people and open their minds to the logic and reality of God.
